Bush, Congress Approval Ratings Drop

Here is the most interesting sentence of the article:

"These numbers are scary. We've lost every advantage we've ever had," GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio said. "The good news is Democrats don't have much of a plan. The bad news is they may not need one."

There is more at stake than the careers of GOP lawmakers. A Democratic-led Congress could bury the last vestiges of Bush's legislative agenda and subject the administration to high-profile investigations of the Iraq war, the CIA leak case, warrantless eavesdropping and other matters.

Two things...it seems that unless something changes, the GOP is in trouble...

And if they lose BOTH houses, the Left will drag the country through hollow, revengeful hearings, impeachment, ect...

Many, why would this country want to run away from Iraq, turn the middle east AND our own govt into complete chaos???

What is going to happen?
Will the Left get one or both houses?

IF any of that happens, the fault belongs to Bush for being a liar, destroying the surplus, alienating everybody in this country and abroad, and being a general scumbag. Its not the Dems fault for going after him for it.

If the Democrats win either house, there will at long last be something unheard of in the last several years. A little thing we like to call "Congressional oversight." It's actually part of their job description.

That includes investigations, especially investigations mandated by Congress and PROMISED by the chairman of the Senate Intelligence committee but not produced.

However, the Democrats will not impeach Bush. This is the cry of the Republics, that if they lose the majority, Democrats will impeach Bush. It is of course FALSE. It is nonsense. If Bush is impeached and convicted, we get Cheney. Cheney is already "president" so what's the point.

why are dems calling for impeachment? Why are there resolutions by liberal cities councils passed?

The Dems will not take either the House or the Senate.
Period.

I believe a seed change is about to take place.

What in THEE heck does that article have to do with the outcome of this years Congressional elections? Despite its attempts to take the side of the administration, it only digs them a deeper hole.

-PRESIDENT BUSH was right to approve the declassification of parts of a National Intelligence Estimate about Iraq three years ago in order to make clear why he had believed that Saddam Hussein was seeking nuclear weapons.-

Though, none of those parts actually prove anything.

-But the administration handled the release clumsily-

Gee, how nice that our gov't handles sensitive data with such care.

-Vice President Cheney initially chose to be secretive-

See, even with something as simple as a press release, they cant just do it. They prefer to do everything in the dark.

-having subsequently denounced a different leak in the same controversy and vowing to "get to the bottom" of it.-

Now we have to try and figure what leaks are real leaks and which are just fronts for them. Do they even discuss this stuff?

-Mr. Wilson was recommended for the trip by his wife-

So?

-none of this is particularly relevant to the question of whether the grounds for war in Iraq were sound or bogus-

OK then, I thought doing something wrong is worth investigating, regardless?
