In the space of a few months in late 2009 and early 2010, Republicans won the governorships of Virginia and New Jersey and a special U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts -- all states that President Obama had easily carried in the 2008 election. In all three races, Democrats aggressively worked to tie their Republican opponents to the highly unpopular former President George W. Bush. In January 2010, a Politico headline delivered the following verdict: "Democrats' Bush-bashing strategy goes bust." Two and a half years later, facing off against Republican Mitt Romney, Obama still hasn't learned this lesson.Some people never learn. As long as it's a losing strategy, it works for me. Here's hoping the Republican Big Tent can get it together and vote Obama out of office.
