Ex Pres. George H. W. Bush Tells Truth: JEB! and Jr still confused by basic facts

Finally, a Republican summons the courage and cojones to tell the truth about the second Iraq War; ex 41st President George H. W. Bush said Rogue President Cheney and War Secretary Donald Rumsfeld became arrogant and bull headed in trying to solve diplomatic issues through war which weakened these United States and damaged the administration of G. W. Bush, 43rd prez appointed by the Supreme Court:
Former US president George HW Bush has hit out at Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, two of the most senior figures in his son’s administration, labelling them too “hardline” and “arrogant” in their handling of the 11 September attacks. 
A new biography of the 41st president – Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey Of George Herbert Walker Bush – reveals that Bush Sr held Cheney and Rumsfeld responsible for the hawkish stance that “hurt” his son’s administration, Fox News reported on Wednesday.... 
After 9/11, Bush Sr told his biographer: “I don’t know, he just became very hardline and very different from the Dick Cheney I knew and worked with. 
“The reaction [to 9/11], what to do about the Middle East. Just iron-ass. His seeming knuckling under to the real hard-charging guys who want to fight about everything, use force to get our way in the Middle East,” Bush told Meacham in the book, which is due to be published next week.
Listen to a proud, traditional Republican raised in an era where truth mattered in politics.  His sons cannot muster the intestinal fortitude to admit Pres. Bush 43 made a military mistake marauding against a country--Iraq--which had nothing to do the attacks of 11 September 2001.

I don't think that this country need another white male with the same upbringing leading for the next four years. To be fair, I think also that Mrs. Clinton should take a back seat. This country is in need of some fresh ideas and people that are not so entrenched in Washington's misery. The same people will have the same results. More wars and less compassion for the common man.
