    A.  Bush wanted to be a war time president.
    B.  Cheney conned him so he could rebuild what we bombed.
    C.  Bush wanted to make Jewish vote GOP.
    D.  Bush wanted to pump up his failed economy.

    The bottom line was Bush was running to be reelected so it's all of the above.  Others may differ.

    •  And he wanted to out do his father... (2+ / 0-)

      I usually dismiss Maureen Dowd's blatherings but I think she nailed the dynamic between those two. Do you remember the interview in which Bush said he hadn't consulted with his father at all during the run-up to the invasion?

      That's a direct F-you to a father who had waged war against the very same country.

      They call him Machete...
