    WASHINGTON -- At roughly noon on Tuesday, shortly after Gov. Rick Perry unveiled the tax policy platform for his presidential campaign, President Obama's reelection team offered a response. The Texas Republican and top challenger Mitt Romney wanted to "shift a greater share of taxes away from large corporations and the wealthiest onto the backs of the middle class," the campaign's press secretary, Ben LaBolt, emailed reporters.

    It was a customary campaign response: tough-worded, carefully crafted and with a targeted message. Notably, it excluded mention of the most oft-criticized GOP figure of the last decade: former President George W. Bush.

    From President Obama's 2008 campaign through the mid-term elections in 2010, the nation's 43rd president has served as a reliable boogeyman. The phrase "Bush's failed economic policies" was ingrained in the political lexicon. The "Bush foreign policy" became synonymous with disastrous adventures overseas. A "return to Bush" was the threat attached to any prospective Republican

    He will just say "I inherited" instead of george bush now.

    You can see it in the liberal main stream media reporting already. The media has dropped "Bush" and have been pumping the "obama inherited" talking point instead of the "bush failures"

    The word "Bush" has been replaced with "I inherited" and "prior administration". Just as "stimulus" has been replaced with "jobs bill".

    Jeez, didn't you get the memo?? :lol:

    Actually, he didn't "inherit" anything.
    Everything was clearly on the table when he chose to run for election.
    He won the election. He got what he wanted.
    The little fucker needs to start taking responsibility like a man.

    That's what he's been saying all along for the most part, and he's not wrong.

    He gained control in a really shitty situation with no easy answers.

    Bush just put a face to it.
