Seems Democrats are so filled with animosity against the immediate past president of the United States that they’ll ignore polling data and just assume all Americans share the sentiments of themselves, their friends and associates. In its first 2010 TV Ad, the DNC is raising the specter of Bush once again, leading one blogger to quip:
Remember, according to the Dems’ own polling, Dubya is six points ahead of our global messiah in frontline House districts. But since they’re going to try to wring one more election cycle out of blaming Bush, I think it’d actually be hilarious if GWB granted their wish and came out in favor of the Ground Zero mosque — eventually. He should wait until their anti-Bush messaging is at fever pitch, then throw them a wicked curveball by weighing in on their side.
Somehow, I just don’t think attacking George W. Bush is going to win over wavering independent voters.
It is, Donald Lambro writes when telling us about the Republican leanings of the Buckeye State this fall, “an axiom of American politics that elections are about the future, not the past. Ohioans are going to vote on the economy in November and not on George W. Bush“. (Via Battle ’10.)
And as goes Ohio, so goes the nation. And it’s been that way since 1964.
