Wah, ha, ha, ha, ha!
All this terrorizing talk about terror has bumped Pres. George Bush's poll by the teensiest of margins at the expense of Congressional Republicans.
Taegan Goddard's Political Wire writes that "GOP terror focus [made] little headway" with the public. Quoting from a recent survey by Democracy Corps/Greenberg Quinlan Rosner.
"This unprecedented effort by the White House produced only the most modest rise in support, concentrated among conservative Republicans. The race did not tighten; in fact, it marginally improved with the Democrats now winning the named (not generic) congressional ballot by 6 points. The image of the Congress and the Republicans declined noticeably. Most importantly, Democrats continue to win the debate on Iraq and national security, even with the president’s current argument, and should speak out immediately and with confidence. The structure of the race has not changed at all; indeed, the ingredients for a change election are even stronger."During Al Frankin's show yesterday, someone mentioned that Bush's Iraq media blitz is turning out like last year's Social Security media fiasco. The more Bush talks, the less people like what he's saying.
Howling Latina thinks most people have a pretty clear idea where they fall on the Iraq War divide; and no amount of spinning, twirling and twisting by the White House is going to change anybody's mind before Election Day.
That is, unless some major catastrophic event takes place; and with these idiots in the White House and accountability on the line, one never knows how far they'll go just to win and stay in power.
In the meantime, party on and keep your eyes on the prize!
