4 of 4 of Governor Romney’s Economic Advisors were Bush-Cheney Advisors

We all know how the Bush/Cheney GOP economic policies of the 2001-2009 era failed us. We know that those policies brought us to this recession. We all know the Bush/Cheney GOP economic policies brought us this debt.

So why has Mitt Romney surrounded himself with former Bush/Cheney economic advisors?

Here they are:

1. Vin Weber. Who is Vin Weber? He’s a former Congressman from Minnesota. A former Health Care lobbyist. A former lobbyist for Freddie Mac. He is also the former regional director for George Bush.

2. N. Gregory Mankin. A professor of Economics at Harvard University. From 2003-2005, Gregory was Chairman of the Council of Economic Adviser under George W. Bush

3. Kevin A. Hassett. Economic Adviser to George W. Bush. Policy Consultant to George H.H. Bush. Works as an Economist at the right wing American Enterprise Institute. A specialist in investing in the stock market.

4.R. Glenn Hubbard. Professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Business. Chairman of Economic Advisers under Bush/Cheney. Areas of expertise are health care and tax policy.

If you were Mitt Rommey, would you hire the same economic team that helped cause the economic crisis, to advise you now?

I wouldn’t.
