    How can Republicans abide by his imperialism? I am totally missing something.

    Are his real poll numbers at 25% but the wealthy 1% and their media just inflating them because profits have never been better?

    •  This may be huge (none)
       I think our little, out-of-the-way, comments here may portend what may, may, crack this thing down the middle, to wit:  if (and it's, admittedly, a big "If") the large swath of Libertarian-types, true Conservatives and Independents can manage to wrap their brains around the fact that one of their central tenents  --  paranoia over Gov't intrusion into their lives and control of the press and religion by a lawless Central Government (gee, as a Populist, I'm somewhat against those things, too, mind you!)  --  then the backlash from a substantial chunck of Bush's Base may, just may, be in the offing. . .

       So, have I qualified my prediction enough, do you think!

       Stay tuned.

      •  I hear you (none)
        I have been wondering lately if the Republicans can be wedged apart by the distrust Bush and his totalitarian antics.

        Like most people, Republicans are very selfish and paranoid. Also they don't like to be called dumb. The Imperial Bush presidency threatens to label the Republicans as Imperial Loyalists.

        As a self-respecting Dem I am totally ready to play the part as one who is ready to argue and fight for freedom, not bow to a man who acts like he is above the law.
