Broadcast – Jeb Bush’s Amnesia
There’s a saying, “If you can remember the 1960s, you weren’t really there.” Well, Republican Presidential candidate Jeb Bush apparently had some long “strange trips” from 2003 to 2008 because he can’t remember anything from those years!
Jeb says Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is responsible for the rise of the Islamic State, the spread of terrorism and instability across the Middle East. Apparently, the invasion of Iraq by his brother George W., when he was President, has been erased from his brain. That decision, to remove Saddam Hussein, took out the strongman who kept terrorists in check. It also destabilized the region by removing the chief obstacle to Iran becoming the dominant power in the Middle East.
Lots of us have brothers who have made foolish choices. But, the hard truth is it takes someone with little integrity and a poor memory to pass the blame off on someone else. I’m Phil Heimlich.
