Following up on my recent post about Jeb Bush's announcement that he won't "re-litigate" his brother's wars because why learn anything, right, we see what he really meant. The above diagram shows the people with whom he's surrounding himself for foreign policy advice.
If anything tells us we'd be in for the same mistakes made by his big brother, it's that the list not only is the same crowd, it contains Paul Fking Wolfowitz, whose wrongness on Iraq included pretty much everything but the spelling of that country's name. And we don't even know that for sure.
I guess we should be glad Cheney and Rumsfeld aren't on the list; but does anyone think he'd not turn to them, too?
