New York (CNNMoney) – Former President George W. Bush said Tuesday he wishes his name wasn't so firmly attached to one of his administration's signature pieces of legislation - the broad-based tax cuts set to expire at the end of this year.

Yup....Part of the BASH BUSH agenda....Wasn’t everything???
“I wish they weren’t called the Bush tax cuts. If they were called someone else’s tax cuts, they’d be less likely to be raised,”
Well W, YOU were the one who had the Bully Pulpit for 8 years, yet allowed your name to be dragged through the mud incessantly by the anti-American Left. Even a moderate return of artillery fire would have been helpful
I don’t care so much about you, but you gravely damaged the Conservative cause.
“I dont care so much about you, but you gravely damaged the Conservative cause.”
That whole family did and does. Nevertheless, W was the pick of the litter.
Yes, that was my take on the headline also until I read the article.
Typical manipulation by our media overlords.
As a “compassionate conservative” I’m sure he would personally prefer to have them attached to tax hikes - just like Pappy!
Seeing as how he CUT TAXES unlike his dad who RAISED THEM, how’s that again...run that by us why you’re accusing him of wanting his name attached to tax hikes??
tax rate cuts
The world is full of economic illiterates.
Now she's on the lecture circuit to conservative venues. Apparently the liberals don't want to listen to her.
Not only do we not need any more Bushes, no more Bush Women!!!
They are the Bush-Obama tax rates not simply the "Bush-era tax cuts" as the Dems propagandize.
Obama and his Democrat majorities in Congress kept the rates in place when they were set to expire in 2010. Sorry, but he owns them now!
If I have to explain the “compassionate conservative” milquetoast pablum moderate mindset to you, you wouldn;t understand. You either get it or you don’t. His term in the White House set the table for the Obama landslide. Whether you like it or not.
What don't I get about cuts in the marginal tax rate?
Yep, yep, yep.
Thanks for your post.
The only thing worse than 8 years of Bush was the 8 years we had to put up with the Bush-WORSHIP and the Laura-WORSHIP on FR.
It was disgusting.
How much did you save in taxes?
W was the pick of the litter as you say, heavily burdened by the Bush women all around him, who were boldy perched on the abort-the-innocent side, every single time they were given the opportunity to say so.
Except for W, so far, the family admiration for socialism is loud and clear, in their open and enthusiastic support for the gentleman Romney.
Midland, TEXAS nourished in George W. Bush the only testosterone in this family of bluebloods, but yes, his family was a heavy burden to drag around morally and politically and even fiscally, and sadly it was under Bush where Congressional Republicans lost their fiscal compass entirely.
We all did.
I don't care what they are called. If his economic policies, and government growth policies weren't so horrible, there would be a lot more revenue without tax hikes.
“I don’t care what they are called. If his economic policies, and government growth policies weren’t so horrible, there would be a lot more revenue without tax hikes”
Amen to that. I could not believe what Bush was doing with regards to his financial house. Almost seemed like we had a liberal in there for a minute....
