Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Dems unveil electoral strategy: invoke Bush

Yeah, that tactic went over like a fart in church in VA, NJ, and MA, didn’t it?  The party of “change” apparently isn’t going to change at all when it comes to their message this year.

Heck, I was one of the people who couldn’t wait for Bush to get out.  But now?  Well, to answer the question on the billboards, “Yes, I do miss him!”  Bush looks like Reagan to Obama’s Carter right about now.

Money quote:

Van Hollen waved off comparisons to the 1994 midterm elections, when insurgent Republicans channeled popular dissatisfaction with Democratic control to knock off 54 Democrats and win back the House. But Van Hollen argued that in 1994 — unlike now — the GOP presented itself as a viable alternative; Democrats were caught flat-footed; and President Bill Clinton’s support was sagging.

Yeah, because BO’s robust 44% approval rating is just the medicine that the government-approved doctor prescribed for the Dems, right?

  1. Don’t get too cockey. There’s still several months till November. The Repubs. have to this Summer give America more to vote for than vote against Obama if they’re going to win back a majority. In 94 there was the Conrtact. Remember no matter hpw unpopular Obama and Congress gets, Obama is not on any ballot, and people gennerally like their own Rep. and Senator. They don’t like other peoples Reps. and Senators.

  2. Not quite, Steve:

    This strong rebuke of congressional incumbents comes from a March 26-28 USA Today/Gallup survey. The same poll finds 49% of voters, a near-record low, saying their own member of Congress deserves to be re-elected. This marks only the second time since Gallup began asking this question in 1992 that the figure has dipped below 50%, and the first on the doorstep of a midterm election.

    So no, most people do not like their own Congresscritter. That’s good news for the good guys, since the enthusiasm gap is wide right now, with far more Republicans jazzed than Democrats.

    Now you’re right in that nothing is set in stone. I wish the elections were today and not seven months from now. That’s plenty of time for the MSM to spin about how good things have gotten this year. Only time will tell if that will work.
