Opinion piece: The Presidential Wheel Turns. Obama fatigue sets in and a new affection for Bush rises with both now at identical presidential approval ratings of 47%!

The Presidential Wheel Turns
by Peggy Noonan, columnist
Wall Street Journal

"Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 because he was not George W. Bush. In fact, he was elected because he was the farthest thing possible from Mr. Bush. On some level he knew this, which is why every time he got in trouble he'd say Bush's name. It's all his fault, you have no idea the mess I inherited. As long as Mr. Bush's memory was hovering like Boo Radley in the shadows, Mr. Obama would be OK.

In an excerpt from a longer interview, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is asked by Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution whether he plans to run for president in 2016. "Uncommon Knowledge" is produced by the Hoover Institution for WSJ Live.
This week something changed. George W. Bush is back, for the unveiling of his presidential library. His numbers are dramatically up. You know why? Because he's the farthest thing from Barack Obama.
Obama fatigue has opened the way to Bush affection...onward to Obama fatigue, and the Democratic Party wrestling with what comes next. It's not only the Republicans in a deep pit."
