President Barack Obama has apparently decided that the way to win voters’ hearts is to warn them against a return to the Bush years.
He’s been in campaign mode this week trying to drum up enthusiasm for Democrats worried about losing their majority in Congress with just one month left until the Nov. 2 election.
In a backyard in Iowa, Obama told voters the election was a choice between going back to the Bush years or moving ahead (although he never uttered his predecessor’s name).
“When you look at the choice we face in this election coming up, the other side, what it’s really offering is the same policies that from 2001 to 2009 put off hard problems and didn’t really speak honestly to the American people about how we’re going to get this country on track over the long term,” Obama said.
Wait a second, did he just question Republicans’ truthfulness? Sounds like it.
