The Bush presidency was an unmitigated disaster.
Romney is Bush on steroids.
“If you agree with Bush’s economic policy, Cheney’s foreign policy and Santorum’s social policy, you loved Romney’s [acceptance] speech.”
– James Carville on The Colbert Report, August 31, 2012
The Romney tax plan is George W. Bush’s plan on steroids.
“George W. Bush gave 12.5 percent of his tax cuts to the top 10th of 1 percent. Romney’s plan gives a third of the tax cuts to the top 10th of 1 percent.
The Bush tax cuts were temporary. They were to last 10 years. Obama agreed to extend them for two. Romney would make the cuts permanent.”
The Romney plan would add to the federal debt.”
