"Laura Bush: ‘It seems like George has been on the ticket this entire time.’"

lauramitch.jpgStumping in Kentucky today for Republican congressional candidate Brett Guthrie today, First Lady Laura Bush joked about comparisons between her husband and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), quipping that “it seems like George has been on the ticket this entire time”:

Bush also joked that she was looking forward to tomorrow’s election “because it seems like George has been on the ticket this entire time” – a clear reference to Democrats’ attempts to link McCain with President Bush.

Bush also praised Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who didn’t actually attend the rally. McConnell’s camp claimed it was “not due to the low popularity of President Bush.”
