Holding All the Cards and Still Losing by John J. Pitney Jr. on National Review Online Republican "power" is not responsible for Democrats’ unpopularity. That "Message Machine" Dems are complaining about is called "The American People". The Dems will never figure it out because they don't listen to em'. A Democrat President and a Democrat Congress spend most of their time complaining about Sarah Palin and G.W. Bush! Perhaps USMB poster "TruthMatters" is a Dem Congressman?
