Forgive me, C&L Readers, for highlighting that which is so stupid that it deserves to be buried far beneath the earth forever. But I cannot resist, because Louie Gohmert has found yet another reason why President George W Bush isn't responsible for invading Iraq.

That reason is...Barack Obama.

Right Wing Watch:

“Everybody else wants to ask that question of, ‘Gee, would you have gone into Iraq if you’d known what you know now?’ And I think if President Bush had known that he would have a total incompetent follow him that would not even be able to negotiate a status of forces agreement with Iraq and start helping our enemies and just totally put the Middle East in chaos, then he would have to think twice about doing anything if he had known he would have such a total incompetent leader take over after him. That should be the question.”

Here's the thing. The status of forces agreement was negotiated by an incompetent. That much is true. But the incompetent who negotiated it was former President George W. Bush.

As for helping our enemies, well...Rep. Gohmert, no one does that better than you and your pals do.

You know what's sad? People listening to this crap believe it, without bothering to take half a second to say, "Wait, what?"

Listen for yourself:
