(CNN)– During the first debate, Barack Obama mentioned President Bush ten times. Many of the references tied him to John McCain - who never mentioned the name of the current commander-in-chief.
Tonight, the Republican nominee pointed to Bush three times – but only to highlight the policies where he parted ways with the president. Obama brought up President Bush twice as often.
Not mentioned? Either man’s running mate.
