Jeb Bush told his audience in Chicago that “I am my own man” in his attempt to distance his foreign policy from the previous versions of Bush in the White House.  Oh really?

We’ve identified the roles each played in the past three Republican administrations, divvying them up as needed in the following Venn diagram.
