The ‘Bush-McCain’ meme

Ben Smith of the Politico quotes Obama spokesman Bill Burton, reacting to John McCain’s NRA speech:

What’s reckless is continuing the Bush-McCain foreign policy that has cost us thousands of lives and a trillion dollars in Iraq, strengthened Iran, enabled Hamas to take Gaza, took our eye off al Qaeda, failed to capture Osama bin Laden, failed to finish the job in Afghanistan, and left us less safe and less respected in the world.

Even though President Bush won’t be on the ballot, Democrats want to make November a plebiscite on the Bush administration. Not only will you hear Obama’s campaign repeatedly use the phrase “Bush-McCain,” but other Republican candidates can expect to find themselves portrayed as joined at the hip to a president whose popularity continues to sink ever lower.
