Is The Obama ’12 Campaign…

Counting on the Bush ’04 strategy?

Given the left’s view of Bush, it’s understandable that Team Obama can’t accept the view that the 2004 election, like all others involving a sitting president, was a referendum on the incumbent. Bush can’t possibly have won because he prevailed in such a referendum; he must have won by successfully ridiculing and demonizing Kerry. Obama intends to win the same way.

But Obama is wrong to believe that Bush’s reelection was not, at root, a referendum on Bush. And he’s probably wrong to believe that this election won’t be, at root, a referendum on Obama.
