    No sooner had Mitt Romney effectively locked up the Republican presidential nomination than President Obama began to sharpen his attacks — on former President George W. Bush.

    In pushing for a tax increase this week on millionaires, Mr. Obama said an unfair impact of tax cuts for the wealthy were enacted during the “eight years before I took office.” A White House spokesman argued that Mr. Bush’s tax policies contributed to “global economic chaos.”

    Administration officials also took verbal swipes after North Korea’s unsuccessful missile launch last week, accusing Mr. Bush of having rewarded North Korea with food aid years ago in spite of its nuclear weapons activities.

    Mr. Obama has criticized the Bush administration’s policies in the past, but the attacks of the past two weeks have been more direct and specific.

    “In a poker game, this would be called a ‘tell,’ ” said Steve Schmidt, who managed Republican John McCain’s presidential bid in 2008. “It’s a signal about what the campaign is going to be. From the perspective of the Obama campaign, they’re trying to have a debate about things other than the president’s economic record.”

  2. Debt is up 5 Trillion under Obama's ever-watchful eye [on his teleprompter], and that while winding down military efforts! Food stamps are the growing economic sector. Watch Obama start talking about how welfare is an "investment" in the future! It's been the worst investment in all of the history of mankind actually..

    Because they're the same policies that Romney plans to employ -- in the future. Romney wants to continue to do the same things Bush did that created the economic mess. Is it really that hard for you to keep up? Have you considered a tutor?

    Was there any doubt Owe-bama would resort to using his favorite boogie-man?

    If the Repubs were smart (yes, I know, a stretch) they would make an issue of the "not my fault" blame game Owe-bama has been playing for 4 years now. This election is shaping up to be 1980 all over again, thank God
