Running Backwards

The Republican leadership that appeared on Meet the Press seemed to me to have a pretty rough show. Maybe before their next appearance they will take an hour or two to do some preparation. I had earlier posted clips of them stumbling pretty badly when asked for specific cuts they would make to reduce the deficit. But they have also given the Democrats an opportunity to jump on them for suggesting a return to the agenda of President George W. Bush. I realize that President Obama is experiencing declining approval ratings, but I don’t believe that makes the Presidency of George W. Bush an attractive ideological alternative. And jump the Democrats did, producing an ad that reminded people of the Bush record. Maybe the Republicans ought to re-consider who they send out for the Sunday morning talk shows. I am sure Michael Steele would have been available.

    Your Honor,

    I think the folks might be reminded of Bush’s 4% unemployment and figure maybe it’s time to throw this guy out.

    Not having jobs and 10% unemployment is what will be rememberer.

    One day you will leap into the present and abandon your obsession with the Bushes. It’s Obama’s problem now and he’s making it worse.

    Your Honor,

    I think you got something there. Let’s get a TV gig for Mike Steele and hook him up with Joe, Quick Brain, Biden. What a pair. Biden and Steele Show.

    Whatcha think.

    Both of them would likely have difficulty speaking due to the constant presence of their own feet occupying their own mouths.
