5. Really, Romney sounds like George W. Bush to me

I think the Obama Campaign needs to run ads morphing Romney into Bush. From what I've heard from Romney, he wants to do the exact same thing Bush and the Bush-era Republicans did, which resulted in the mess we've had since 2008.

I'll bet some of the words they've spoken are the same.

Since most Americans still disapprove of Bush, and he's so unpopular that the GOP will likely barely mention him during this election, I think it's important for the Democrats to keep him front and center. They could even point out his ABSENCE in GOP events.

Narrative: "Why aren't the Republicans reminding Americans how much better off they are? Because Republican policies during the George W. Bush years increased the deficit to record levels, lowered household income, increased unemployment, put more Americans in poverty, increased the size of government, rewarded corporations for off shoring American jobs, gave huge tax breaks to millionaires, reduced regulations and oversight that led to the great recession of 2008, and increased the gap between middle and upper income Americans. Mitt Romney's plans for America are more of the same."
