Big Mistake. Very.

Click here: - GOP Keeping President Bush Under Wraps During Campaign Season - Politics | Republican Party | Democr

President GWB --- whom I have only met twice --- very briefly each time --- is an American original.

When the history of this time is written I believe he will be one of the giants.

He has tried to help the poor and the afflicted.

He has tried to promote and purvey, non-coercively.

The economy has done quite well and I think will do better still.

Big mistake to keep Bush under wraps? Why? If the polls indicate that Republican candidates in certain critical districts will do better with voters if President Bush is kept at a distance, isn't that a good electoral strategy?

In case you haven't noticed, Ben, President Bush's poll numbers are still pretty low. The economy might be doing well, but most voters don't think so. I believe Bush will be viewed in a better light in a few years, too, but that doesn't mean he is a good campaign tool right now. Do you seriously believe Lincoln Chaffee or Christopher Shays will be helped by campaign visits from President Bush??!?!?

If you want Republicans to retain the House in a couple of months, better to keep the unpopular Republican president away from swing districts. It just makes sense.

Mr. Wattenberg,

I think you are wrong about how Geo. Bush will be judged by historians. Reasons:

-Iraq War lies/misrepresentation
-Deficits 3 trillion & counting
-Hurricane Katrina disaster
