Bush? Who is this Bush you speak of?

The New(t) Republican election strategy: The last six years had nothing to do with us.
This morning on CBS’s Face the Nation, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
advised fellow conservatives not to talk about President Bush’s record. “President Bush is not the future. He’s not a solution.
He doesn’t solve Social Security. He doesn’t solve Medicare. He doesn’t solve the economy. He doesn’t solve the environment. He doesn’t solve education. He’s a current fact,” Gingrich said.

It’s also a “current fact” that the conservative agenda has failed to “solve” these important issues over the past six years.

Gingrich went on to say that conservatives “have to say, this is not what we want to debate. It’s not in Baghdad, it’s not in Katrina, it’s not at Walter Reed, it’s not with the U.S. attorneys, but I have a better plan for a better solution that fits your values.” When Host Bob Schieffer suggested that Gingrich seemed to advocating steering clear of President Bush, Gingrich responded, “Well, I think that’s clear.”
