Where has Bush been hiding?

To the Editor:

I’m wondering, does anybody else finds it fascinating that while the Republican party masterfully markets their handsome and presidential looking nominee to the American public, touting similar economic policies as the previous Republican administration, that their former president George W. Bush is, by all outward indicators, bound and gagged somewhere in a closet in Texas?

If I were cynical I might think that the party leaders fear that his voice and image may conjure up memories that are too disturbing to be brought to our attention during this election season.
