President Barack Obama is trying to ride the wave of anti-incumbency by taking on an unpopular politician steeped in the partisan ways of Washington.
It doesn’t matter that George W. Bush left office 16 months ago.
The White House’s mid-term election strategy is becoming clear – pit the Democrats of 2010 against the Republicans circa 2006, 2008 and 2009, including Bush.
It’s a lot to ask an angry, finicky electorate to sort out. And even if Obama can rightfully make the case that the economy took a turn for the worse under Bush's watch, he's already made it - in 2008 and repeatedly in 2009.
It’s not clear that voters still want to hear it.
Good to know that two years after he surged into office Barry's still gonna dodge accountability. place his bets and pin it all on his predecessor. Barry's policies have all failed, he's polarized the nation in an unprecedented manner, the economy has gotten far worse, he's continued two wars he said he'd end, frustrated independents have all turned against his party and yet Barry still wants voters to believe that it's all Bush's fault. Sad.
