Not much demand for George Bush

Anybody think this is suprising?

Republicans, who paid electoral costs in 2006 and 2008 for Bush's unpopularity, are hardly clamoring for the 43rd president to join them on the campaign trail. After all, an Associated Press-GfK poll last month found 55 percent of all Americans have an unfavorable opinion of Bush and 51 percent blame him for the economic crisis that began on his watch.

While he enjoys popularity with base conservatives, Bush is not necessarily an in-demand figure for candidates trying to fault President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats for the economic mess.
Republican strategists are quick to say they respect the former president but add they are not begging him to join candidates at rallies.

Bill Clinton, on the other hand, is very much sought after.

Just something to think about.
