|How exciting! George W. Bush's campaign has released a new white paper on the economy. No, wait, that can't be right -- sorry, it's The Romney Program for Economic Recovery, Growth and Jobs. I apologize for the confusion, but perhaps you'll forgive my mistake -- the four economists who co-authored the white paper are Glenn Hubbard, who chaired Bush's Council of Economic Advisers from 2001-2003; Greg Mankiw, who occupied that same office from 2003-2005; John Taylor, Undersecretary of the Treasury for International Affairs during Bush's first term; and Kevin Hassett, a campaign adviser for Bush in 2004 about whom the less said the better. So remember, when you hear Romney's economic program described as the policies of the Bush administration, 'just updated,' it is not a joke. A travesty, maybe, considering the manifest disaster that was the Bush administration, but not a joke.|
