Of course, I'm joking about President Bush winning and serving in a third term as our President, but the way most democratic leaders in Congress are talking these days you would think that President George W. Bush is on the ballot in 2008. Democrats are making the same mistake Republicans made during the final days of the second term of President Bill Clinton and that mistake is running against a guy that isn't going to be around that much longer. I guess there really isn't much left to talk about on the far left anymore now that President Bush not only beat them by continuing the War in Iraq when they were in the minority in Congress, but he continues to beat Democrats at every turn even when they have clear majorities in both the U.S. House of Representative and U.S. Senate.
When the 2006 congressional elections were over and Democrats took control over both houses of Congress, there were people like myself that had high hopes that they would march into Washington and do the right thing. Instead, all I have seen is a bunch a bumbling fools that try to blame everything from disease to natural disasters on President Bush, while at the same time having no original ideas of what to do to fix many of the worlds current problems. Running against President Bush was a sound political strategy during the congressional elections of 2006, but events and times have changed since then. However, democratic leaders have not changed their message to the American people.
The democratic take over of Congress is going to be short lived if Democrats in Congress don't find new leaders. What should have been a disaster for President Bush after the 2006 congressional elections has turned into a gold mine for him and the Republican Party because of lack of real leadership among Democrats. The American people are looking for real leadership and not a bunch of losers that blame everything in the world on President Bush. The fixation on destroying President Bush has blinded the democratic leadership in Congress and allowed what they feared most to continue and that is total power and control over their actions by President Bush and Vice President Cheney.
Are there any real LEADERS left in the democratic party?
