(CNN) - The Democratic National Committee is out Friday with a new television ad that looks forward to the November elections and closes with a cameo from former President George W. Bush.
Entitled "Big Choices," the ad frames the midterm elections as a choice between the policies of President Obama and national Democrats and the policies of Bush and the GOP. It captures a view of idealistic Americana –rolling fields of wheat, windmills, a teacher in a classroom, a welder in a factory–before Bush makes a surprise appearance with a verbal gaffe.
"You fool me, you can't get fooled again," Obama's Oval Office predecessor says in footage used in the ad.
The new 30-second spot is running on national cable stations.
I suppose they had to use one of Bush's gaffes. They couldn't use one of Obama's or Biden's.
Pretty sad that Dumbocrats have to continue to use the "blame Bush" card, its pretty pathetic. Blame Bush, not the Dumbocrats who have controlled Congress since 2006.
Seriously? If that's the best Democrats can do, then they are truly inept. If the Republicans come out with their own commercial of Biden/Obama gaffs, it would take up an enormous amount of of airtime!.
It also makes one wonder... Do Democrats still think they are running against Bush? All this shows is that they have no clue about what is important to this country.
My god, can the DNC be any more pathetic?
I wouldn't be so quick to remind voters about being fooled, it hits too close to Obama and his more center line approach during the past election
As far as Obama and being Muslim, I do not believe he is but I do think he thinks like one!
That has to be a "Top 3" on the Top 10 List of silly things said and done by ANYBODY.
Really!?! This is the best my past party can do? How irrelavent and immature.
Unfortunately, it wont help the Dems to hide their own failures that are clear and present.
Hey Dems, get over it!! You relayed false points against George Bush and got the majority of the nation to support an unknown named Barack Hussein Obama for president. Obama won and has been in office nearly two years. In that nearly two years he has INCREASED unemployment by almost 3% AND borrowed 3 TRILLION dollars with NO SIGNS OF ANY ECONOMIC IMPROVEMENT!!
The Dems had TOTAL control of the presidency and Congress and screwed it up royally. So now since the Dems cannot talk about any accomplishments (because there have been none!!) their only option is to bring up "George Bush". Well the people are smarter than that and everytime Obama, or fellow Dem Congress, mention "George Bush" your poll numbers fall even more. However, the Dems don't have a choice and is their "hail mary" because of their TOTAL INCOMPETENCE over the last two years!! So give it up. The "George Bush's fault" NO LONGER WORKS!!
Wow, I didn't realize that George Bush was running this November. Glad the DNC brought that to my attention.
The Dems fooled us in 2008, and they won't fool us again! GOP 2010 and 2012!!!
WHhe we were losing millions of jobs; trillions in retirement savings accounts, and countless thousands of homes foreclosed, I winced and got angry and disappointed ever ytime I heard President Obama stand up and blame Bush. All we heard during the first year was this is all Bush's fault. I did not vote for Obama to hear him point fingers and assess blame; I voted for him to solve prooblems; deliver on the jobs he promised us; and lead the nation. He has failed me and millions more miserably. And the Blame Bush game is incredibly arrogant and incredulous. I do not know how he does it with a straight face –although if all you do all day long is read from tele prompters, maybe he has developed that talent.
Now we have the democratic congress - who have held a majority for 35 of the past 40 years also trying to blame Bush for their shortcomings. This is arrogance at its worst; and incompetence at its peak. I doubt many Americans are going to buy that story from the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Fran, and others.
Glad to see that Democrats are focusing on their accomplishments.
Comedians. They're all comedians.
You are kidding me? Bush left office January 2009 and 19 months later the democrats are still using him? To the democratic leaders, please find something else or you are going to lose big time in November. Stop being stupid.
The Democrats are running scared as all the Polls are saying. UnEmployment was about 4.5 percent under President Bush. Can't blame 9.5 percent UnEmployment on Bush can we?
All the Big Government Programs were put in place by Democrats. The last one was the Housing Mess. Not much else to say.
Last time I checked Bush was not on the ballot
Hope the republicans don't come back and use all of our present day Vice President gaffes – Joe Biden – the King of gaffes....this is so going to backfire.
Wrond add Democrat idiots. Your man couldn't carry this man's squats.
I am a democrat. Using this kind of material is stupid, childish and unworthy of a dignified nation. Oh, I almost forgot, That's how politics IS in America!
Still running against Bush equals a losing strategy and a sign of desperation. Why don't the dims run on lets say.....Obamacare, the border security, the stimulus and the bailouts, you know, the stuff they should be proud of? The lack of transparancy and the back room deals and big bribes to senators will be remembered in 73 days.
Okay, Democrats, you've had the ball for a year and a half now. Time to stop playing defense.
Maybe it will backfire on the DNC and remind more people of when we had an honest, ethical president and prosperity, prior to the lying, corrupt, democrats taking over the congress and wrecking the economy in 2006. Hopefully, it will also remind people that we now have an immoral, unethical, inept, corrupt, union toady for a president, because of the SEIU (and its wholly owned subsidiaries ACORN and AARP) stole the 2008 election in a conspiracy with the liberal media (represented by Journolist, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, etc...).
If the DNC can't figure out a better strategy than running against a guy who hasn't been seen in almost two years, the Dems are in deep trouble.
Hard to believe they are running against someone in 2010 that hasn't run since 2004.
"yuh...yuh got people...werkin' haasaard...tryin' tuh put food on their families...."
We as a nation need to be reminded of this moron and what his policies have done to our country and why it should never happen again.
