    WASHINGTON—Democrats are working hard these days to tell voters that the nation's economic problems were created by President George W. Bush. But that line of attack—which has buoyed the party significantly over the past four years—may be losing its edge.

    In a string of recent elections, Democrats have tried to paint Republicans as Bush acolytes ready to lead a revival of his policies. One widely aired television ad in the recent Massachusetts Senate race showed a picture of Republican Scott Brown, and then shots of former President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. Mr. Brown won anyway.

    The results suggest voters are beginning to worry less about what Mr. Bush did, and more about what President Barack Obama will do to dig the economy out.

    They went to that well too often, so there is nothing left anymore.

    Oftimes a point is so obvious, that when you state it, people wonder why.

    you have to be fucking kidding me? how many people voted for obama because he was 'not bush' or 'not a bush republican' including the nobel peace committee? it is a huge problem with the two party system and guarantees the same people will stay in charge over long periods of time

    If you voted for Bush, then you bought it for 8 years...

    Obama supporters have a lot of catching up to do....
