A Trend?

Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Bush's numbers are up with an RCP average of 40.8.

AJ notes the following:

The verdict is coming in and it is the Democrats are confused, paranoid, sometimes delusional and not worthy of being taken seriously on national security. The latest Gallup Poll tells the story:

In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday, support for an unnamed Democratic congressional candidate over a Republican one narrowed to 2 percentage points, 47%-45%, among registered voters. Over the past year, Democrats have led by wider margins that ranged up to 16 points.

Now 42% of Americans say they approve of the job Bush is doing as president, up 5 points since early this month. His approval rating on handling terrorism is 55%, the highest in more than a year.

The boost may prove to be temporary, but it was evidence of the continuing political power of terrorism.

It’s not the power of terrorism, it is the stupidity of the Democrats spending 2 years claiming the entire terrorism issue was being overblown and Bush was spying on Americans. You cannot make these kinds of wild accusations and then be proven wrong. Mature, serious people are going to rightfully conclude anyone who believed this nonsense is a waste of time to listen to. The more serious the issue the harder the response will be. And terrorism is serious. People die if we get it wrong. there is no amount of message that will correct the mistakes the liberals have made the last two years in their rantings. The moderate democrats like Leiberman have been shown the door by the far left and they will take that door. If this election is going to be a choice between fighting terrorism or impeaching Bush, then we will fight terrorism.

Like my Daddy always said, give em enough rope and they will hang themselves. Notice how little news coverage there has been of Cindy Sheehan this year?

The Lieberman issue alone is causing enormous damage to the Democratic Party. Once again, the Daily Kos types are inadvertently helping the Republicans. Is Karl Rove slipping them some money under the table? Too many hard core Democrats believe the war on terror is a con game devised to enrich Dick Cheney and his oil patch buddies. Do they comprise the actual majority? Whatever, they are still able to intimidate the Democratic Party’s more moderate politicians.

The thing that really harms them is their meanness. They are vicious and people do not like that.

Well, a recent poll indicated that most people knew about Mel Gibson's drunken remarks, but few actually had any idea what was going on in Connecticut.

We tend to think that every American follows this political crap as closely as we do--they do not.
