President Bush is on TV now saying that the Dems are going to raise taxes on anyone they can, and that the war in Iraq is still the right course of action.

"I don't believe we can wait to respond until after an attack occurs [...] Iraq is a part of the war on terror [...] in this war, if we leave early, the enemy will follow us here. I believe we will maintain control [of the House] because we are on the right side of the economic and security issue."

A lot of stuttering and a lot of smirking on W's behalf.

"No one's ever accused me of having a sophisticated vocabulary."

***My two cents: The Republicans are going to stay in control for a while. Aside from the fact that the Dems don't have their act together, the passion with which W speaks is frightening. He truly believes he's doing the right thing. The Dems, with all their hemming and hawing just look moronic. Grrrrr.

Well, I'll disagree with your statement that the Dems don't have their act together. You could make a case that some old-line, entrenched Democrats in DC don't come across well. But, new and progressive Democrats are running excellent campaigns in many districts across the country. You won't find the coverage of these races in the national press, but political blogs cover them well. The future of the Democratic Party is bright because of the excellence of these new Democrats. The Republicans will be swept from office, certainly in the House if not the Senate despite all the bleatings from Bush. Everyone sees him for what he is - pathetic, inept, and sophomoric.

Thanks for enlightening me, Todd. Tell me, which Dems should we be keeping our sights on? You've encouraged me :-)
