Republican strategist (and Bush/Cheney loyalist) Ron Christie appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher‘s panel discussion Friday evening, and still couldn’t admit that invading Iraq was a wrong decision.

That steadfastness by Christie prompted Princeton professor Cornell West to repeatedly ask, “Were your wrong, were you wrong?”

Former CNN correspondent also had his criticism set for Christie’s hypocrisy of questioning President Obama’s influence in Libya, asking, “Why didn’t you ask that during the Bush administration?”
