Why Hasn't George Bush Campaigned for Romney?
huffingtonpost.com — Earlier this week -- as he was barnstorming the country for Barack Obama -- former President Bill Clinton subbed in for the president as Obama flew back to Washington to oversee the country's response to a major hurricane. That would seem an appropriate context to ask the question, why hasn't the most recent Republican President, George Bush, been barnstorming the country for Mitt Romney? It says a lot that for most Americans this sounds like an absurd question. Clinton was a major featured speaker at the Democratic Convention. Bush wasn't even invited to Tampa. Bush is not campaigning for Romney because he and the policies he implemented are politically radioactive to most American voters. George Bush is off in political Siberia because the Romney campaign is doing everything humanly possible to prevent voters from realizing that Romney intends to return precisely those same failed Bush policies to the White House if he is elected president next week.
