Bush and Rove Not Worried.
Conspiracy theories and downright fear can be felt by the Democrats for no other reason that the President and Karl Rove are not only optimistic but downright buoyant about the November elections. Bark Bark Woof Woof actually gave me my laugh for the day, at the end of the piece titled "What do they know", he poses the question, "Then again, how do you know your vote is really being counted correctly?"(sarcasm)
I have the feeling the left is already looking for excuses about how and why they managed to lose yet again.
All this from the Wapo story "White House Upbeat about GOP Prospect".
Amid widespread panic in the Republican establishment about the coming midterm elections, there are two people whose confidence about GOP prospects strikes even their closest allies as almost inexplicably upbeat: President Bush and his top political adviser, Karl Rove.
So they should be. The Republican base is there and strong despite attempts to encourage them to stay home and not vote, that is not a likely scenario and everyone knows it, even if they will not admit it.
The polls consistently are wrong, year after year and how many of us has actually been polled? I haven't, have you? Has anyone called your house and asked who you will be voting for? The questions asked are phrased in a manner that demands an appropriate response, yet they do not accurately present the one conclusion that counts.... the vote itself.
You can ask a person if they are happy about the war in Iraq and have the answer be negative, then take it a step further and say "approval rating" is low. The questions not being asked of the Republican Base, is: Will you be voting Republican? Because then the answers and the poll results would not be news worthy.
Just go Vote, that is all it will take for the Republicans to keep enough seats to get the job done instead of having to contend with endless bickering and inhouse fighting, to the point where the country and the safety of our country is ignored. Which is exactly what would happen if the Democratics win either of the houses. We all know it.
