Bush came back in that election because his advisor Lee Atwater had stones the size of watermelons. He knew if they could expose Dukakis’ far leftism, they would win easily. As Atwater said, “We are going to strip the bark of the little bastard.” It worked.
Problem this time is people know 0bama and his leftism. The demographics and political ideology in this country have shifted to the left a great deal. Being a liberal is not poison anymore.
I loved that guy. They really don't make them like that anymore.
I don’t think bush came back. I don’t think Dukakis ever had a lead.
Much like we are seeing today. I don’t think Obama has a lead either. I thinks polls are skewed and manipulated by dems.
Valid points. However, Dukakis still looked like a dork and the image stuck. Obama has had numerous images like that and nothing seems to penetrate the teflon shell the media gave him in 2008.
He came back because of Ronald Reagan. He realized he needed to pretend he agreed with Reagan in time to save himself.
