Harry Reid Offers Sneak Preview of Obama Re-Election Strategy

According to President Obama’s friend in the Senate, it sounds like the White House strategy for the upcoming campaign will be a refreshing “accept responsibility” approach where the President will run on his record, not make excuses and maybe even admit that his “fixes” worsened the problems.

Did I have you there for a second? Didn’t think so. No, according to Harry Reid, no matter who the GOP nominates, one of President Obama’s main opponents and blame magnets will continue to be — you guessed it — George W. Bush:

After occupying the White House for three years, Democrats will try to blame everyone but themselves, including the Bush administration, for the sour economy and jobs crisis, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday in a floor exchange with Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Reid, a Nevada Democrat and close ally of President Barack Obama, conceded that McConnell wasn’t completely off base.

I do think the presidential election will be based on what took place in the Bush administration, how we tried to recover from that, how things have been exacerbated because of the tsunami and European debt crisis,” Reid said.

Who says the two parties can’t agree on anything?

If I had to name one thing I appreciate about Harry Reid, it’s his predictability.
