President Obama rarely gets the credit he deserves for pulling the country out of the economic hole George W. Bush left us in when he flew away from the White House for the last time as America waved a much relieved goodbye. In spite of all the GOP obstruction, the president has made amazing strides and we are much better off today than we were when Dubya stopped mucking things up.
However, the Bush policies are threatening to make a comeback in the form of Jeb Bush, who has chosen to call himself just "Jeb!" and for good reason. The Bush name is kryptonite to the reality based voter. Sadly for Bush, people aren't stupid, and it's pretty hard to make voters forget when you campaign on largely the same ideas that got us into the mess left behind by his brother in 2008.
Yesterday Jeb! talked about his views on the economy, and they were just as bad as one might think, but he also added that American workers are largely to blame for a sluggish economy.
