    •  That's because he's just plain stupid! (0+ / 0-)

      The Republicans in Congress knew what was coming last year. The RNC knew. Bush is quite simply in over his head. Hoover was a smart man, an engineer by training. With his analytical mind I would have thought that he would have figured it out. I think that they were so arrogant and so out of touch that it simply was beyond the realm of possibility that they could be voted out of power. There are Republicans who still can't believe that Bill Clinton won in '92. In their minds the presidency was a Republican right and was to be handed down like an inheritance.
