Michele Bachmann brings 'miss me yet' billboard to CPAC
George W. Bush is back -- at CPAC, at least. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) got a big cheer Friday for putting up a picture of the former president with the caption "Miss me yet?"
"I like it too," she proclaimed. The image first appeared mysteriously on a billboard in her state earlier this month. It turned out to be the work of a group of small business owners.
Shirts bearing the Bush image are also selling well online, according to the New York Daily News.
Conservatives at the annual event have been embracing the last administration in other ways. It's a big change from 2009, when the recently retired Bush was barely mentioned.
Florida senatorial candidate Marco Rubio got an enthusiastic response when he called for renewing the Bush administration's policy of putting terror suspects before military tribunals at Guantanamo.
"I am convinced that history will judge President Bush far more kindly," former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney said Thursday.
And former vice president Dick Cheney was met with adoring applause when he made a surprise appearance Thursday. "A welcome like that is almost enough to make me want to run for office again," he responded.
