Democrats Will Focus on Bush Economics, Not Bush Himself

In an Obama campaign conference call with reporters, senior adviser David Axelrod said that former President George W. Bush's policies and legacy -- but not Bush himself -- will be key to the Obama campaign's effort to draw a sharp contrast with Mitt Romney, Greg Sargent reports.

"Axelrod joked that Bush the man would get about as much of a mention at the DNC as he did at the RNC -- which is to say, almost none at all -- but said Bush economics would be very much on the agenda."

Said Axelrod: "We are going to take issue with the policies that were in place in the last decade, because this is where they want to go back to. These are the policies that they want to embrace once again."
