Fox’s Stacey Dash: No One Would Have Been Beheaded Under Bush:

Outnumbered guest host Stacey Dash said Monday afternoon that no one would have been beheaded under a George W. Bush presidency.

Dash’s comments were in reference to a report Monday that Bush criticized Obama’s foreign policy, the first time he has been known to done so.
