What’s really going on here is a fascinating case study in karma for conservative media — and for the Bush family.
Dynasties will stay on our minds while there’s a Bush or a Clinton in the 2016 presidential race. But I have a little news to break: The Bushes are an American political dynasty, and the Clintons certainly are not.
Frankly, my dear, Bush was gone with the wind and water in 2005. Any faith left in the Iraq War he started in 2003 collapsed. It’s a usually long way from New Orleans to Baghdad, but not on that late summer day.
Nobody should be shocked to hear a right-wing chicken-hawk disparaging a worthy veteran at this late date. In the Republican Party, it is standard operating procedure — and for any Republican to pretend otherwise now is risibly hypocritical.
In his book The Great War of Our Time, former CIA deputy Director Michael Morell explains the blunder that led to Saddam Hussein being deposed and sent him into hiding in a spider hole.

Watch Jeb Bush’s answer on what he would’ve done differently than his brother on Iraq — or maybe done the same — if he’d known everything we know now.
Jeb Bush isn’t just less popular than you’d expect him to be, he’s less popular than his brother, someone millions of Americans consider the worst president of their lifetime.
Obama’s job record is outstanding and continues to smash the idiotic economic predictions promoted by Republicans.
