In an effort to win more congressional seats in November it looks like the Republican Party is going to argue that the country needs to re-embrace Bush Era policies in the coming months. That's not a typo. Here's what NRCC chairman Pete Sessions said on Meet the Press this past Sunday.

"We need to go back to the exact same agenda that is empowering the free enterprise system rather than diminishing it."

Got that? The Republicans think that re-embracing the market fairytopia mindset that brought us President Bush's failed policies, and our current economic debacle, is a winning strategy in November.

Responding to the effort to rehabilitate President Bush's image, Bruce Bartlett reminds us what happened when, in Bartlett's words, our "Screwup-in-Chief" was in office (be sure to read the comment section). It's useful to keep in mind that Bruce Bartlett is not only a columnist for Forbes.com, but was Deputy Assistant Secretary for economic policy at the U.S. Treasury Department during the George H.W. Bush Administration. He also served as a senior policy analyst in the White House for Ronald Reagan.

The incredible thing for me is that America even needs to be reminded about the Bush Debacalypse. What a complete and utter disaster for our nation, and for our friends around the world.

Fortunately for us there are people who have spent a good deal of time documenting - and linking us with the evidence that chronicles - President Bush's failed presidency. You can read about our Screwup-in-Chief's 400 biggest failed decisions and policies here.
