Evidence continues to mount that Bush attacks won’t work.

Blame Bush.

That’s been the longtime weapon of choice among many Democrats.

And they’ve used it to tag allies of the President as dangerous for the well-being of the nation.

It’s also, as I’ve been saying since the beginning of last fall, not going to work.

The latest bit of evidence?

He’s been out of the White House for less than two years, but Greg Sargent notes that a new polling memo by the centrist group Third Way suggests that “only 25% of Americans believe that if Republicans return to power in Congress their economic agenda will mean a return to former President Bush’s economic policies. 65% say that a Republican Congress will promote a ‘new economic agenda that is different from George W. Bush’s policies.'”

Furthermore, moderates and Independents “have completely divorced congressional Republicans from the economic philosophy and failed policies of President Bush.”

Bush Attacks: they’re like bringing a plastic sword to a gun fight.
