ALL IIIII AM SAAAAAYING...

IS give Democrats a chance.
Well, if they earn it.
A NY TIMES article again, sorry. Like you don't read it already online. But
"Democrats showing signs of confidence in Iowa" says that people who know a lot more aobut politics than I do, think bush has weaknesses. Of course, they're also supposed to say that otherwise what's the point.

Still, when the White House pollster says this (from article): "Every president whose job approval going into the election was 50 or above won," said Matthew Dowd, the Republican strategist in charge of White House polling. "His job approval has to drop significantly in some way, so there has got to be some event or some situation that would cause the public to believe it was time for a change. The only thing I could think was if the economy continued to sputter."

... you've gotta have hope. See, one, I'd bet good money RIGHT NOW that he's wrong on the 50 percent assertion. and even if he wasn't, what does that statement really mean in modern politics? Reagan and Clinton "lost" an election each because of term limits, not popularity or lack of it. That cuts out two elections of the last six elections over the last 22 years. Secondly, Dowd makes the bold claim that the economy is spluttering. Tell that to the bosses who continue to polish the rosy glow.

In relation to the post below, it's all downhill from here for the Rove administration.
