If the GOP admitted to the existence of George W. Bush, then their entire 2012 presidential campaign becomes Deja Vu all over again. Revisionism works for those who want to believe it. The truth is Romney, Ryan and the GOP want do EXACTLY what George W Bush did which got us into the mess we are in. They want two more wars, one with Syria and another with Iran, they want to give another round of tax breaks for the wealthy and further deregulate financial institutions. So they have to lie and cheat and steal to make any progress. Remember, it is not the bankers and billionaries they have to win over, but 50 million nitwits.
