"It was a horrible idea---as bad as sticking your face in a blender"

“[Joe] Scarborough was in disbelief over Bush’s repeated blunders this week in trying to answer whether he would have invaded Iraq like his brother George W. Bush, knowing what he knows now about the results of the war.

The MSNBC host, who supported the war in 2003, asked contributor and Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin to pose the Iraq question to him.

“No, it was a horrible idea, as bad an idea as sticking your face in a blender, what’s your next question?” Scarborough said, to laughter from the panel.

1. I am sick of this word "mistake", was NOT a mistake. Cheney and friends knew damn well

there was no WMD.

They invaded for reasons having absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with WMD

4. Cheney and his friends knew, as did every Democrat I know.

Including the ones in the House and Senate who voted for the invasion, including Senator Clinton who not only voted for the invasion, but made a speech advocating for it, consistent with the positions of the Democratic Leadership Council, the Progressive Policy Institute and PNAC.

7. I'm starting to wonder if Jeb didn't think it was a "mistake" to even try for the WH, and is

busily sabotaging his own campaign with dumbass comments...?

9. I hear he is now saying that he loves his family SOOO much that we should not expect

him to disagree with them

Therefore, if George or W think invading someplace else, killing a few hundred thousand more people, is a good idea, he will do it.

10. Hmmmm...so does that mean we can all smuggle couture from Paris?

Write ourselves prescriptions for painkillers? Have public sex in our vehicles in big box store parking lots? Spit at cops after college drinking bouts? Tear up the landscaping of our former paramour's parents' home after trying and failing to break into the house in a stalker-ish kinda way?

I haven't even started to list all the crap his brother pulled!!!

I mean, really...if he can't disagree with it, it must be OK!!!

2. Considering...

...how many American died, how many innocent people we killed, and those still suffering for the LIE - sticking his face in a blender would have been preferable.

6. Being the generous person I am,

I would be happy to lend a little help here. Not a helping hand, of course, but maybe a bit of gentle pressure on the back of the head with a potato masher…

5. Hard to know what Joe is up to here, but I am sure he has a motive behind criticizing Jeb.

11. remember this?

---snip----

A civilian official at the Pentagon said that the military did not want “any kind of attention that is unwarranted or undignified.” White House press spokesman Scott McClellan said that the president’s opposition to media coverage of the returning war dead was rooted in his determination to “show respect for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”

“Look, nobody wants to see dead people on their television screens,” Bush declared at his April 13 press conference. “I don’t like that.... It’s gut wrenching.” Acting on this presidential insight, the Pentagon has done its best to censor such images.

13. Good memory, yours! Remember when Bush told the Gold Star mom ''not to sell her medal on eBay?''

The little turd from Crawford was sore busy with his wit when he gave his ''commemorative coin'' to Goldstar mother and says: "Don't go selling it on eBay."



The guy said that in the White House to a woman whose son died in Iraq for no reason Bush or anyone ever gave to the American people.

The great DUer UTUSN noted the moment:

12. Yeah, supporting the troops they are

Nice to see that the waste of so many lives and so much money can be played off for laughs in certain quarters. But then, they're just following George W. Bush's lead, when he was kidding around about looking for weapons of mass destruction behind the Oval Office drapes.

14. ''No WMDs here!'' Bartcop used to call him the ''Giggling Mass Murderer.''

No way. No how. Not gonna support unconstitutional unitary executive warmonger can't find weapons of mass destruction anywhere horsefeathers.



Of course, Bush had called off the drones to track bin Laden BEFORE 9/11.

Nothing about that, anywhere, almost, anymore.
