Corzine plays the “Bush Card”

Moe Lane succinctly states that Corzine’s “Bush Card” might not work as much to his advantage as his hack speech writers might wish:

It was apparently ‘George W Bush’ this and ‘George W Bush’ that in his acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination tonight (in other words, he’s repeating his strategy from 2005, and Menendez’s from 2006).   Which, as Jim Geraghty nicely (more nicely than he should have, maybe) notes, is interesting, given that Corzine currently polls below (36%) George W. Bush (41%).  Heck, right now he’s polling below Dick Cheney – so I suspect that this particular well might be drying out a bit*. Meanwhile, Chris Christie won on the GOP side, pretty conclusively: Steven Lonegan has already pledged his full support.
