In last week’s debate, a voter told Mitt Romney she’s afraid of going back to Bush-era policies and asked for some reassurances. The Republican insisted, “President Bush had a very different path for a very different time,” before noting several issues where his agenda is indistinguishable from George W. Bush.
The next day, the Romney campaign started featuring Condoleezza Rice on the trail. Today, it’s Dick Cheney’s turn.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney is headlining a fundraiser for Mitt Romney today at Dallas Love Field.
The GOP presidential candidate’s son will also appear at tonight’s private event, to be held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field.
Also scheduled to appear are national GOP Chairman Reince Priebus, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer and political pundit Glenn Beck.
Romney’s son Josh will be on hand for the event, and Paul Ryan will appear via video.
First, I’m sure Team Romney will be glad to get the $2 million the fundraiser is expect to bring in, but Cheney’s efforts don’t exactly reinforce the notion of Romney breaking with his party’s failed past.
Second, Glenn Beck? Really?
