Coming to Jeb's Rescue, Marco Also Totally Blows it on Iraq

This is pretty amazing.

Jeb Bush might have lost the nomination last week with his agonizing slow-motion flip-flop on the Iraq War. The Republican establishment must have been looking around for someone else to take his place as the 'serious' candidate and eyeing Rubio pretty closely.

So imagine Jeb's surprise when Marco went on Chris Wallace's show yesterday and rescued him from the brink by also totally blowing it on the Iraq question.

Just watch it. It's that bad.

If Marco can't hold it together during a Fox News interview on a question he definitely should have seen coming a mile away, we should absolutely welcome the prospect of Clinton/Rubio debates. Hillary would absolutely crush him, especially since he'll be having to defend unpopular policies the whole time.

And that's not even getting into the whole water bottle breakdown State of the Union response. He's simply not as ready for prime time as some people might have thought.
