The Daily Showdown

Jon Stewart mirthfully dissects Jeb Bush's Iraq War flip-flops

If you're wondering where Jeb Bush, non-candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, stands on the Iraq war launched by his brother, former President George W. Bush, you're not alone. On Thursday night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a look at Jeb's various answers to the question of whether he would have invaded Iraq, starting with yes and ending, finally, with a reluctant no. "Thank you!" Stewart said, after having a little fun with Bush's excuses and dodgy backpedaling. "Was that so hard?" Now, if only Jeb would come up with a believable explanation for why he's not an official candidate yet. —Peter Weber
