More Desperation

Okay, here’s the Republican strategy, “This is not about national issues, this is a choice made at the local level.” In other words, “If you think we’re bad, check out the other guy.” Pretty weak.

Also, I noted this quote by Bill McInturf, Republican pollster in a story about the economic squeeze that middle and lower income people are feeling:

“People like this are making a large ripple across the body politic,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies. When added to the growing opposition to the war in Iraq, he said, worry about this economic crunch “is creating a political environment that is not that friendly to the party in power.”

Yeah, right, especially when “the party in power” has done literally nothing to address the economic problems of the middle and lower class and, in fact, has adopted policies that dramatic aggravate the squeeze. “The party in power” is expressed as some innocent bystander who happens to hold office when bad things happen. No, it’s the Republicans and maybe, just maybe the voters have at long last gotten wise to the scam.
