These images are from a campaign mailing for the special US Senate election on January 19, 2010 in Massachusetts.
You can see that the Massachusetts Democratic Party is suffering from severe Bush Derangement Syndrome. It is one year since George Bush is no longer President.
But those with acute BDS continue to run election campaigns against him. If the Democratic candidate and her paid advisers and consultants use cognitive dissonance to try to persuade voters, is there any hope that we will ever be able to believe what politicians say and do?
In January 2010 Bush and Obama have about the same favorable opinion ratings by American citizens. Why would anyone want to equate a fresh faced candidate, MA State Senator Scott Brown with Bush, who is now as popular as the current President?
Perhaps the Democratic political consultants are living in the past and the candidates are unable to question their wisdom. Is that why Michael Meehan, an Obama appointee working for the Coakley campaign assaulted a reporter when the journalist asked an embarrassing question of the Mass Attorney General?
