Jeb Bush: 'I would have not gone into Iraq'

Fourth time's a charm?

Jeb Bush this week has struggled mightily with what would seem like a basic question: Knowing what we know now, would you have invaded Iraq? On Thursday, he gave what we are guessing is his final answer: "Knowing what we know now, I would have not engaged. I would have not gone into Iraq."

For those keeping count at home, the previous iterations were: 1) yes, I would have invaded; 2) I don't answer hypotheticals; and 3) answering that hypothetical is a disservice to the troops.
