Dukakis’ novel idea: Blame Bush…
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts Governor Michael S. Dukakis, the failed 1988 presidential nominee, recently visited the White House and delivered his strategy for the midterm elections: pound key precincts across the country with the message that Republicans want to implement the same policies that led to the Great Recession.
Dukakis, who said in a telephone interview that he “popped in” to the White House while on a trip here several weeks ago, said he told aides to President Obama that Republicans “want to go back and do exactly what got us in this mess in the first place.”
“It seems to me there has to be a single message coming from Democrats, from the president on down,” Dukakis said. “We’ve got to pound that message as hard as can from now until November.”
Asked if the White House aides were receptive, he said, “I think they certainly get it.” He declined to name the aides he met at the White House.
Dukakis said that it was also important for Democrats to remind voters that former President George W. Bush left the country with an increasing deficit.
