    New ebook Argues 2012 is a Referendum on George W. Bush

    Every president since Gerald Ford has attended his party’s first convention after leaving office. Not George W. Bush. His name was barely mentioned in Tampa, or during the GOP primaries, or in any of thousands of Republican campaign ads aired so far this cycle.

    Yet during this 2012 race the legacy of his administration is to Republicans like the proverbial elephant in the room, a presence too embarrassing to recognize but too overwhelming not to matter. In poll after poll, voters blame the poor economy not on Obama, but on Bush — and Bush’s policies are hard to distinguish from Romney’s. The Romney campaign has tried to make the race a referendum on Obama. It is shaping up, ironically, to be a referendum on Bush.

    A new ebook, Elephant in the Room: Washington in the Bush Years, explores why, despite efforts to airbrush him out of today’s political conversation, the 43rd president remains central to it.

    Whether you’re a liberal or a conservative, Elephant in the Room is a timely and important book premised on the idea that comprehending what went wrong in Washington during the Bush years is key to understanding what can be done to set the country right.

    What an interesting concept. And it is true that the GOP would like to forget GWB even existed. He is NEVER mentioned in the Romney campaign at all.

    Nice attempt to deflect from Barack Hussein Obama's failed record.


    Why is his record never mentioned?

    When will Barack Hussein Obama own his failed presidency?

    Indeed. In this case what can be done is keep Romney and his Bush Era fiscal policies out of the WH.

    Interesting and accurate.

    And the right’s efforts to expunge Bush from republican political history is remarkable and telling.

    His record is mentioned all the time!!! You people just don't want to give him credit for anything!!! Even killing Bin Laden!!!

    This is from the Washington Monthly and all 50 accomplishments are true. It's too long for me to post but why don't you check it out and learn something for a change??

    Everything we give the bastard credit for.... you dummies blame on Dubya.

    I do not need to read some slobbering bullshit to know exactly what he has done to destroy the middle class, divert The Constitution, and attempt to bring us down to the level of the rest of the world.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    I totally agree, especially since Romney has so many of the old Bushies on his team.

    If Romney would put PRyan in an "undisclosed location" or keeping him babbling at the Vichy Americans, govern from the center as he did in Mass., he'll be ok.

    Bush actions and policies are still driving the debt numbers. That's a fact.
