They do seem to wanting to keep running against the former President. Guess it’s easier to run against Bush’s image than for Obama’s agenda.
To those of you on the left slapped those 01/20/09 stickers on their cars and others once so eager for W’s last day in office, let me remind you that that day has come and gone. George W. Bush is no longer in office. Your guy has taken his place.
You don’t need to bash that Republican any more. He’s gone home to his “village” in Texas just as you wanted him to.
But, wait, maybe this wasn’t about politics. Maybe you do “need” to bash someone. And W remains a convenient target, just like the former Governor of some state up north. Far north.
ADDENDUM: Mark Steyn wonders, “So why not blame Bush for the horrors of the Obama presidency?” That smart Canadian cites Jacob Weisberg who wrote that the incumbent “molded his [foreign policy] approach around his predecessor’s errors.” So, if Obama does something wrong, it’s really Bush’s fault.
