Dems Still Think Bush is on the Ballot

It cracks me up sometimes what passes for journalism inside the beltway. Take The Politico's Ben Smith, for example. In Smith's blog today, he observes a new and big change in Obama's approach to this election ... Barack Hussein has started attacking President Bush!


The last time I checked, these Democrats were, and have been for some time, running against Bush. In fact, it's actually a JOKE in some conservative circles that when the general election comes, the Democrats will have been running against someone who isn't on the ticket for so long they'll probably won't know WHO they are running against.

It looks like Ben Smith got the story backwards. He quotes Obama as saying:
Here’s the good news -- for the first time in a long time, the name "George Bush" will not appear on the ballot. The name "Dick Cheney" will not appear on the ballot. The era of Scooter Libby justice, and Brownie incompetence, and the Karl Rove politics of fear and cynicism will be over.
I may or may not be an idiot, but that sure seems like Obama has figured out that Bush ISN'T on the ballot. What passes for journalism inside the beltway....
