De-Bushing Romney

Romney unfortunately has a good chance of losing because of the vastly different composition of the U.S. population(the minorities are now the majority), which means the U.S. is a "dumbed-down" country. Thirty years ago we would never have had an inexperienced affirmative action senator elected to the presidency, no matter how bad Bush was, and Bush was a terrible president.

This is shaping up to be the second election in a row that's about someone who isn't on the ballot: George W. Bush.

In 2008, Barack Obama won in no small part by turning the election into a referendum on President Bush and by claiming that a John McCain presidency would amount to a third Bush term. Since then, Obama's presidency has been one long run-on sentence of blaming his predecessor, only occasionally punctuated with complaints about Europe, ATMs, the GOP Congress, Fox News and tsunamis.

Like a general fighting the last war, Obama is going with what's worked...
