I pine for the days before Obama dragged the Democratic Party into bailing out the banks with billions, carrying water for the corporate healthcare reform, and backing a trillion dollar failure with his surge to over 100,000 troops into Afghanistan.
They call for the defeat of Castle, admitting that O'Donnell can't win statewide, but that it would still be better for the GOP. Go figure.
I sorta get this thinking. Maybe DeMint sees his denying a moderate into the Senate as more powerful for ther minority bloc of Senators. But, a lot of these folks, for oppositie different reasons, are just as disgusted with the Republican Party as are progressives and pragmatists.
Yea, I changed that, thanks. I'm with you on counting on anything before its delivered. To me it looks like Ayotte has bridged across well, and will win. If Castle loses, that will be a huge story we'll have plenty of time to talk about.
From everything I've read about Obama, Lincoln is really the only President he has read alot about. he may talk about FDR & Kennedy, but really, he seems like he has three influences: reading about Lincoln, watching Bush, watching Clinton. He also seems to have a bit of Reagan-envy.
So, what does Obama see in himself that he think parallels Lincoln and the conflict he was amidst? Is that Afghanistan, because if so, he's delusional. If it the post-partisan blah, because if so, he's an egomaniac of the 12th degree. More than anything, he looks like Cleveland's second term at this point.
The only valid point is the trend. His numbers going down. With the only other point being that his approval below 50 percent (at 45%), it means he's at a usually unelectable number for an incumbent.
Its sorta like, at this point, taking a guess after a stock has lost a lot of value, of weather its bottomed out and time to buy; but if you look at the trend, you are really just gambling against the odds.
