  •  In other words, the economy sucks (5+ / 0-)

    but a fair share of voters still blame Bush, and Romney reminds them of Bush.

    •  Romney argued n 2004 (3+ / 0-)

      that voters shouldn't blame the incumbent, because, well, it's poppycock. Strong words!

      “The people of America recognize that the slowdown in jobs that occurred during the early years of the Bush administration were the result of a perfect storm. And an effort by one candidate to somehow say ‘Oh, this recession and the slowdown in jobs was the result of somehow this president magically being elected…’ people in America just dismiss that as being poppycock. And they recognize it as that.”
