George W. Bush Wants To Tag Along

You know how it is: you want to go out and do some schmoozing and partying, and the school doofus wants to tag along with you. What to do?

Republican presidential candidates are in a quandary. Do they want to be seen with the Worst President Ever when they go on the campaign trail? Bush is an excellent fundraiser. After all, the only people who still like him are the ones who’ve reaped millions from Iraqmire and those tax cuts.

White House contenders would love to get some of that cash, but if that means being dragged down, is it worth it?

Even the candidates who are in favor of the War on Iraq are trying to be cautious. Romney, Giuliani, McCain and Fred Thompson all agree with Bush, but somehow his name never comes up when they’re campaigning.

A political expert from the American Enterprise Institute said: “Let’s face it, you’ve basically got a president who is radioactive. I’m sure he’ll be active, as he said, on the campaign trail. But frankly he’s not going to be very visible on it.”

Hopefully some Democratic campaign strategists will get a clue here. Republican White House candidates need to be made synonymous — completely interchangeable — with Dumbya and Iraqmire. Bush’s Reign of Error has been an albatross, and we need to make sure the Republican candidates are wearing it around their necks.

    Do the Republican presidential candidates want to be seen with Jimmy Carter?

    On taking office in 1977, Carter declared that
    advancing “human rights” was among his highest
    priorities.

    March 2005
    Following up on his inaugural pledge to “end tyranny around the world,” Bush demanded that Syria immediately withdraw its troops from Lebanon,

    And perhaps Jimmy has
    forgotten that Hezbollah, which he helped make
    possible, killed 241 U.S. Marines in their Beirut
    barracks in 1982.

    At which point Reagan promply cut and ran.

    The Soviet Union, seeing us so willingly abandon a
    staunch ally, invaded Afghanistan, and it was the
    resistance to the Soviet invasion that helped give birth
    to the Taliban.

    So who was president and aiding the taliban during that struggle? Reagan & Bush

    When President Clinton first learned of the North
    Korean nuclear program in 1994, a surgical strike
    against its Yongbyong reactor

    When he did react he got this response:
    Critics, including Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, charged that the former operation was an attempt to distract attention from the Lewinsky scandal, and Serb state television went so far as to broadcast Wag The Dog in the midst of NATO attacks on Serbia.

    On this score, Carter might have escaped his own
    malaise if he had cut taxes to get the economy going
    again. But even with marginal income tax rates at a
    hefty 70%, he accepted the common wisdom that a tax
    cut would boost inflation and lower government
    revenue. He was dead wrong.

    Notice how the deficit increased dramatically during reagan & bush especially aftr the reagan tax cuts.
