Romney's economic team has a Bush hue

Mitt Romney's economic team has a very George W. Bush-like hue.

Romney, who plans to unveil his economic program later Tuesday, announced a team of four top economic advisers, including two who served Bush as top economic aides. Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, is seeking the Republican presidential nomination.

R. Glenn Hubbard served as Bush's Chairman of the Councl of Economic Advisors from 2001 to 2003, and N. Gregory Mankiw served in that job from 2003 to 2005.

Mankiw is now a professor of economics at Harvard University, while Hubbard is a professor of finance and economics at the Columbia University Business School.

Also on the Romney team are former Minnesota Rep. Vin Weber, a longtime adviser to GOP politicians, and former MIssouri Sen. Jim Talent.
