WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush said if given the opportunity he would go back in time and kill baby Hitler.
When asked by The Huffington Post what was the "funniest or most bizarre" email he has received, Bush recounted the correspondence:
"It said, 'If you could go back in time and kill baby Hitler, would you? I need to know,' " Bush said.
His answer: "Hell, yeah, I would. Look, you gotta step up man."
Bush said there's no way to predict how it would have changed the course of history, as evidence by the Back to the Future film series that starred Michael J. Fox.
"It could have a dangerous effect on everything else, but I'd do it -- I mean, Hitler," Bush said.
The original question came from a New York Times magazine poll that found many of its readers would kill the German dictator long before he led the Nazi party in order to possibly avoid World War II and the resulting Holocaust.
