    The same ideas that got us out of the last Democratic economic mess produced 25+ years of unequalled growth and prosperity.

    Tax Cuts.

    Obama won by a strong majority. The Democrats had huge gains in congress. Obama is a very popular president so far, his agenda is popular so far, and by a large margin when polled the electorate wants Republicans to work with Democrats, and a solid majority of Americans when polled believe the Republicans are acting as obstructionists for political reasons.

    Thus, it is the Republican agenda right now that is very controversial and lacking support among the majority of voters.
    Obama is losing support every day the stock market goes lower and lower.

    Funny, that's never stopped Democrats from bitching when they've lost the White House or Congress.

    Besides, we all know that the only way to obtain a majority is by a) convincing as many as possible that your ideas are right, and b) convincing as many people as possible that your opponents' ideas are wrong.

    Democrats have been on offense for eight long years. They're now playing defense and I get the distinct impression that they're uncomfortable in the role. They'd better get used to it. And fast. Obama's economy is tanking faster than anything I've seen in my lifetime. Which might actually be a good thing for him at the moment... since it's taking all attention from his outrageous foreign policy blunders (secret letter to Russia?!? Jimmy Carter couldn't have thought of something that high-schoolish!)

    What's going to get really interesting is when the Iraq 'withdrawal' starts. Obama's kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place on that one. The drawdown won't be nearly as fast or as complete as his hard left supporters will demand. And they'll be furious as fighting in Afghanistan ramps up.

    This is going to be a fun ride, folks!

    Just a reminder, Bush lost the pop vote in 2000.

    And he's not done a thing to stop global warming yet. Aren't we near the 'tipping point?'
