Knowing What We Know Now

150519-knowing-what-we-know-nowMegyn Kelly asked Jeb Bush if, knowing what we know now, he would have supported the invasion of Iraq. It would be a great question to ask Hillary Clinton since, as a Senator, she voted for the war. Alas, Hillary is above questioning so Megyn’s question is only being asked of Republican candidates.

Nobody asked him, but Professor Victor Davis Hansen answers the question here.

It’s a good question. Most of the Senate Democrats who voted for the the war quickly turned against it. Many Republicans and public opinion soon headed for the exits too.

With everybody against him, President Bush finally fired Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, poured more troops into Iraq, and put General David Petraeus in charge. The NYT published MoveOn.org’s ad calling him General Betray Us. Hillary called him a liar.

As it turned out the Petraeus plan worked.  In 2010 Joe Biden proclaimed events in Iraq the Obama administration’s finest hour. President Obama withdrew U.S. forces as he had promised.

Islamic man-burning barbarians soon filled the vacuum. Obama called them al Qaeda’s JV team. On Sunday the JV team routed the Iraqi defenders in Ramadi – 70 miles from Baghdad.

At present the last line of defense appears to be Shiite fighters from Iran.

Knowing what we know now, who in their right mind would answer yes?

 

Obama Poverty Panel

The president’s lecture at a Georgetown panel on poverty didn’t sit well with Joe Scarborough. His intolerance for those who disagree with him isn’t going over so well with Democrats either.

And changing the minds of Boehner, McConnell, and the media are not enough. Hillary says deep seated cultural codes and religious beliefs have to be changed.

Mothers Day in Baltimore

Nothing is more embarrassing than having your mom smack you upside the head and drag you home in front of your fellow rioters. Toya Graham didn’t want to see her son become another Freddie Gray . Her solution upstaged President Obama who condemned the violence in Baltimore, blamed Republicans, and called for more spending.

We have mandatory death, taxes, and healthcare. Why not voting? The president thinks it’s a good idea.
