Obama Evoking GWB's Name

It is campaign time for the mid-elections and Obama is fundraising for the Democrats. In his speech about the GOP, he finally evoked the ugly name of George W. Bush! Obama said about the GOP, "They don't have a single idea that's different from George Bush's ideas--not one." Bravo!!

President Barack Obama, speaking at a fundraising event for the Democratic party in Atlanta, said the Republican party hasn't differentiated itself from former President George W. Bush.

"They don't have a single idea that's different from George Bush's ideas--not one," Obama said to applause. Obama rarely refers to his predecessor by name during speeches, preferring instead to say "the previous administration."

He said Republican policies caused the recession. "We got here after 10 years of an economic agenda in Washington that was pretty straight forward," Obama said. "You cut taxes for millionaires, you cut rules for special interests, and you cut working folks loose to fend for themselves. That was the philosophy of the last administration and their friends in Congress." Link

After Dubya left office, Bush said in an interview back in March 2009 stating that Barack Obama "deserves my silence". 

"I'm not going to spend my time criticizing him. There are plenty of critics in the arena," Bush said. "He deserves my silence."  Link

But Bush could not keep his trap shut! Just a shy 3 months since he uttered the "deserves my silence" quote, he took a direct aim at Obama's policies as he tried to defend his own 8 years in office. His press speech occurred in June 2009. Link

So not speaking ill of his successor and then doing so publicly - this is not surprising at all. This is expected behavior from the GOP! Lying, flip-flopping, hypocrites!

So Obama, press on. The floor is yours. Smear and wipe the campaign trail with George W. Bush's name. Remind America of his failed leadership!

Notice you don't see GWB campaigning anywhere for the Republicans. Keeping a very low profile! For Bush to publicly endorse any candidate would probably destroy their chance to win the election.
