"President Bush II is not on the ballot"

Actually President Bush is on the ballot, since the Romney/Ryan ticket advocates exactly the fundamental(ist) policies: tax cuts for the richest of the rich, federal government expansion (via the military), cutting jobs--the jobs of the government regulators who keep America's fiscal warlords from romping and stomping over the rest of us, and the enactment of the religious views of Christian fundamentalists in the criminal code.

Bush II is also on the ballot because the fiscal catastrophe wrought by the Republicans during his reign were so severe we're still digging out from under them. Who says any problem created by any American regime can be solved by the next administration in a year or two? That's what the GOP says--at least when they're talking about a Democratic administration...
