"God bless Romney for doing that"

Dubya's Back!

How confident are Republicans in their electoral prospects this year? They're bringing George W. Bush back into the fold.

And Mitt Romney is leading the charge. Romney... offered an extensive defense of Bush's record on the economy and national security in his CPAC speech Thursday.

"I am convinced that history will judge President Bush far more kindly," [Romney] said after noting Obama's attacks on the former president. "He pulled us from a deepening recession following the attack of 9/11, he overcame teachers unions to test schoolchildren and evaluate schools, he took down the Taliban, waged a war against the jihadists and was not afraid to call it what it is—a war, and he kept us safe."

"God bless Romney for doing that, I think it’s fantastic," Andrew Breitbart, who runs a number of news sites including Breitbart.com and Big Government, told The Daily Beast. "[Bush] is a fundamentally decent man with the hardest job in the world in the hardest time for our country."

Ha! Michael Savage on his Facebook page: I will support a Bachmann / Romney Presidential Ticket for 2012 - he also says "We need a businessman" for President!
