The only reason we went into Iraq, I tell people now, is we were looking for somebody’s ass to kick. Afghanistan was too easy.
Oh great. A former Bush aide says in Peter Baker’s new book “Days of Fire: Bush and Cheney in the White House.”

What’s the thinking behind this? Is the RNC banking on a complete rehabilitation of W’s image, or are they trying to usher in such a rehabilitaiton themselves? Why does the tone of the sticker seem vaguely sarcastic?  We’re as stumped as you. source

So the new George W. Bush Presidential Library, opening this week, includes an interesting feature: An interactive section that allows visitors to decide for themselves if the decisions Bush made were the right ones, based on input from virtual “advisers.” In other words, Bush’s little way of giving himself a second chance in the eyes of the public. (ht @pbump)

Are we better off than we were four years ago? Let’s ask Obama’s surrogates

  • we aren’t On Sunday, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said we weren’t better off than we were four years ago, but blamed Bush, not Obama. ”Without a doubt, we are not as well off as we were before George Bush brought us the Bush job losses, Bush recessions, the Bush deficits, the series of desert wars, charged for the first time to credit cards,” he told ”Face the Nation.”
  • we are But everyone deserves to be contradicted sometimes, and in this case, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa disagrees with the Maryland governor. ”We are better off. We’ve had 29 consecutive months of growth - 4 1/2 million jobs. In fact, more jobs in that time than the 8 years under [President] Bush.” What do you think? Are we better off than we were? source

He needs to broaden the message out when talking about immigration, to make it an economic issue as much as it is a question of the rule of law, have a broader message and have a more intense message.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush • Putting his experience with voters in Florida to good use by giving Mitt Romney some advice on how to handle the state. We know, now more than ever, that Bush will not be anyone’s running mate in this election, but that doesn’t stop him from giving his two cents. He goes on to say: “Great countries should be able to control their borders, plain and simple, and we haven’t done it to the extent that we should, although there has been significant improvement in the last seven, eight years — also because we’ve had a lot fewer people trying to cross the border, because our economy stinks.” source (viafollow)

cablenewschyrons:

What do YOU think they’re talking about?

Here it is, everyone: A single-serving Tumblr you can get behind, about those endlessly-mockable chyrons that MSNBC in particular seems to spend too much time making awful. (ht @AntDeRosa; HuffPo Live employees @CharlianneJames and @RickyCam take full credit)

Jeb Bush, who doesn’t want to be vice president, would back raising taxes
But only $1 for every $10 cut. Let’s not get too crazy: The brother of George W. Bush isn’t afraid to break from his party on some issues, and one of those appears to be the hard stance that taxes could not raise in any circumstances whatsoever. “If you could bring to me a majority of people to say that we’re going to have $10 in spending cuts for $1 of revenue enhancement — put me in, coach,” he told the House Budget Committee Friday. In fact, Bush is one of those rare beasts who turned down Grover Norquist’s infamous pledge against all tax increases, at any time, ever. Whoa, this guy sounds like a moderate. Get him! source
