“Mr. Dukakis, if the economy were raped and murdered, would you favor continuing to blame Bush?”

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.”

Dukakis then had a $10 bill tucked into his lapel by a man in a tuxedo saying “tell the chef the strudel was exquisite.”

Hey, what political party wouldn’t take advice from a candidate who managed these kinds of results nationally:

Nobody had the heart to tell Dukakis that the Dems have decided to implement the Mondale Plan instead.
