The wartime politics of the Administration have proved effective in distracting the voters from the dismal economic conditions in America. In almost every other case, the party of the President loses in off-term elections, particularly when the economy is bad. In this case, it appears that the Madison Avenue-driven war campaign has succeeded in reframing the debate onto grounds that Republicans found electorally fertile. It also appears that Democrats who ignored their political base and cast a 'Yes' vote on war in Iraq have not benefited by their votes.
The far left is blaming the sweeping victories of the Republican party on the Republican campaign.
How about blaming the non-campaign of the Democratic party? Every article I read from the left leads me to believe that leftists are in a state of denial.
I'm waiting for one of these lefty sites to have a headline that says "Democrats Screwed Their Constituents By Acting Like Assholes And Running Shitty Campaigns" rather than "Republicans Have Taken Over The World!! Run Away! Run Away!"
Make no mistake. The results of this election speak one thing very clear and very loud: Saddam is a dead man. The people have spoken and they have voted for war.
