Rep. Lungren figured it out. He was wondering why they were looking for George W. Bush. They must be behind in the polls.
Via Dittos Rush:
Rep. Lungren (R-Gold River-CA) on the democratic predicament:
“Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. The polls show the democrats are in trouble because every time that happens social security is pulled out of the back pocket. Republicans are going to destroy social security. This party is the only party that saves social security.
“Democrats must be behind in the polls because they are pulling up George W. Bush. I have looked all over the campus, I can’t find him. I went down to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He left!
“Maybe you folks didn’t notice. President Obama is there. What a real shame it is that current democrats are running away from the democratic party of J.F.K.
“He told us, forget about class warfare. A rising tide lifts all boats.
“Maybe you ought to listen to some of those on your side who didn’t talk about fear but talked about hope.”
