CPAC: Lots of Bush Bashing, No McCain Bashing

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

One of the interesting things at CPAC is the extensive Bush bashing. Newt Gingrich, this morning, attacked the “Bush-Obama” policies on bailouts and stimulus. John Bolton attacked Bush’s policies on Iran and North Korea. Not surprisingly, Ron Paul took extensive shots at Bush. (He also fired at broadside at U.S. entry–in World War I.) I guess we shouldn’t be shocked that conservatives are putting distance between themselves and the unpopular former president. What is surprising is that there are no shots at John McCain for his campaign or his moderate positions on climate change and immigration. It’s all about Bush. I have a video coming up soon with Grover Norquist in which he offers some thoughts on the topic.
