The Republican National Committee is celebrating former President George W. Bush's birthday this weekend by selling wistful "I Miss W." t-shirts to its supporters.
"President George W. Bush led our nation through some of the most challenging moments of our nation's history -- and we miss him and his leadership," reads a fundraising pitch on the RNC's website. "By sporting this comfortable, classic, American-made tee, you.
can share our message and help us elect principled conservative leaders to office."
The RNC may have been emboldened by a Quinnipiac University poll this week, which found that a third of U.S. voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Bush came in second, with 28 percent naming him as the worst recent president, followed by Richard Nixon with 13 percent.
The RNC has also been selling colorful limited-edition socks embroidered with the signature of former President George H.W.
