For weeks, we’ve been anticipating a Democrat surge in the Senate, envisioning a horror movie in which the ultra-liberal President Obama is allowed to ride roughshod over Truth, Justice and The American Way by the Democrat super-majority in the Congress.
But how likely is that scenario?
This is just a theory, and I may (God forbid) be completely wrong, but just bear me out.
Let’s not look at this from the perspective of the Presidential election. What hasn’t received much press is the battle for the House and Senate.
Perhaps, a few weeks ago, the horror movie seemed inevitable. Eight years of media-fueled Republican/Bush hatred drilled the image of a Blue Capitol into the minds of Americans.
Then, the Bailout Bill.
Since then, has there been more anger toward a Congress since the War Between the States? (The draft, maybe. And they’re the side that keeps suggesting bringing that back). Trillions of dollars have been lost on the Stock market. Homes values nation-wide have dropped 17%.
Even Saturday Night Live acknowledged that the Democrat Majority was responsible for the Bailout and for the irresponsibility that led to it, making Bush look like a pawn in the Democrats’ evil plan.
Subsequently, they had to pull and sanitize the skit. Gee, wonder why.
Is it possible that the Democrats are actually losing ground? We aren’t hearing much about Democrats retaining seats from the MSM. The Dreaded Murtha finally looks like he’s going to get the boot. Cindy Sheehan was running against Nancy Pelosi. Barney Frank has been exposed as a nutcase. (Or, as I like to call him, Future Cartman.)
And we have the Bailout Bill to thank for this.
Had we actually squashed the Bailout, none of this would have been exposed. The frustration toward the Democrat legislative branch would have been kept at a simmer rather than the raging boil it is now.
Again, this is all theoretical, and it may not affect Obama in the slightest.
But Jack Murtha is losing his seat. SNL spoke against Democrat leadership and got punished. People are noticing.
And it all comes back to the Bailout Bill.
