For Whom the Bell Tolls

At TNR, Bill Galston looks at the poll numbers and concludes things look bad for Democrats this fall.
Connect the dots and we have the portrait of an electorate that’s highly dissatisfied with the status quo and that seems poised to give more votes in the aggregate to Republican than to Democratic candidates this fall. I don’t know how many House seats that translates into, but I’d be surprised if the number didn’t start with a “3” (at least). As far as I can see, only a big change in the economy—a significant increase in the rate of GDP growth leading to a noticeable reduction in top-line unemployment numbers and a bump up in real disposable income for those who have jobs—would be enough to change the overall outlook for November.

But the demoncrats insist it is all George Bush's fault.
That is going to be their argument 2 years later? How about if I were to campaign on pictures of the demoncrats that stood and applauded the Mexican President as he denigrated our State of Arizona and berated our 2nd amendment?

We are not out of Gitmo.
We have seen little on C Span.
Still in Iraq.
40 days of oil washing in Gulph.

Big, big conservative swing in 2010, bigger yet in 2012 when President Obama become a 1 termer.
WOW, even Jimmy Carter was better than this guy.
