    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! :lol:

    Perhaps USMB poster "TruthMatters" is a Dem Congressman?

    He's hardly plunging in the polls and we will get healthcare. The above quotes are merely wishful thinking and Republican spin.

    I've said it elsewhere and I'll repeat it here:

    Cons like to call Pres. Obama another Carter, but I think in terms of how much he'll be pissing them off he's really likely to be another Clinton.


    :lol:

    That'd mean that Dems would lose control of Congress. I'd love that!

    You'd think with the WH & Congress in their pocket the Dems would be on fire pushing their agenda through. That is sorta what was promised, right? (Change?)

    Instead there's all this focus on Palin and Glenn Beck and a lot of others that don't hold positions of power in this country. Why? Are they that scary that even without power they need to be demonized? Or is it just that the Dems really don't have a plan or a vision?

    I don't expect any Dems here to enlighten me, I'm betting the responses will be like the 1's to Mad Scientist - all fluff and diversion.

    Don't you know, the democrat controlled house and the democrat controlled senate and the democrat controlled presidency are out-numbered by the republican minority that is stopping legislation?

    Little Lord Obammyroy is going to make Carter look like Eisenhower.

    At least Bubba could bullshit you on the fly.

    I do have to admit, one reason Mr Obama is better than Mr Clinton is because he can keep his fly zipped up.
