Over at SadlyNo
I was struck by this post's headline:
Hope the Dems won’t mind losing the House in 2010
The gist of the post is that the economy, and specifically the rocketing unemployment numbers, may derail the gains the Dems have worked so hard to achieve over the past 4 years.
The reason- most voters are still in that "squishy middle"- where the phrase "what have you done for me lately" overrides almost all other considerations. They may easily not realize that the Bush disaster will take a long time to repair and decide to "throw the bums out" once again in 2010. Regardless of whatever measures Obama and the legislature take over the next year, all indications are that the economy is headed for an iceberg and we all know the old saw about trying to turn a battleship on a dime- probably will not happen in two years or probably longer.
I really hope I am off base here and somehow a miracle occurs with the economy...I am certainly no expert in that area. And maybe my lack of faith in the electorate is misplaced. We will find ut in two years....
