The Republican Cargo Cult*

CNN host destroys Jeb Bush: You blame Hillary for Benghazi but insist brother blameless for 9/11

It's taken 14 years to arrive here.

*Cargo Cult and magical thinking.

Donald Trump:
“When you talk about George Bush, I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time,” Mr. Trump said.
Blaming 9/11 on Mr. Bush is taboo for Republicans and has largely been off-limits for Democrats. Pressed on whether he really meant to blame the attacks on Mr. Bush, the billionaire developer did not back down.
“He was president, O.K.?,” Mr. Trump said. “The World Trade Center came down during his reign.”

Jeb Bush: 
"We were attacked & my brother kept us safe."

It has always amazed me that a simple rhetorical construction has continued to provide cover for George W. Bush and his administration. Imagine the media and political class' unrelenting attacks on the Obama Administration if the World Trade Center had been destroyed in 2009.
