In a very well-done piece at Patheos, Tim Dalrymple argues that while the tea kettle might be whistling under Barack Obama, the flame was initiated during Bushs’ presidency:
The tea started brewing under Bush. It’s important that Democrats and Republicans alike understand this. Democrats know that they are about to suffer a rebuke of historic proportions, but it’s important they understand the reason and not imagine themselves the victims of racism or irrationality. And it’s important for Republicans to understand that their legacy of government growth and deficit spending is also suffering rebuke. The Republicans will recapture the House (if they do) not because Americans love the GOP but because the Democrats doubled down on the Republicans’ big-government tendencies.
It’s a long, well-thought-out piece, and you’ll want to read it all!
The headlines at Drudge, on possible incidences of voter fraud are not surprising, are they? I gathered when–in the face of disastrous poll numbers–David Axelrod said “stay up late…” because the Democrats would pull off a victory, that we’d be seeing questions at the polls.
Katie Couric visits “the great unwashed”. That would be you and me.
