Could someone change the tape in Cyborg Nancy’s chassis? It’s stuck in a loop
With her party down in the polls and poised to lose potentially dozens of seats in the mid terms, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will use one of her last major speeches before the elections to hit two favorite Democratic targets: George W. Bush and the Chamber of Commerce.
“We have lost millions of jobs to outsourcing under President Bush. We don’t intend to repeat that policy – no matter how much money the Chamber of Commerce dumps into our elections,” Pelosi plans to tell the Women of Steel Convention in Pittsburgh on Monday, according to prepared remarks.
Bush? Who dat? The guy who’s been out of office for almost two years, and had a Democrat led Senate and House his final two years? You know, the part of government that passes legislation? Interesting that she finds time for the same old blame game, but, won’t actually debate her opponent, John Dennis. Too bad her Party is crumbling like an ancient rat filled tenement, with yet another Democrat saying he won’t support her as their House leader, GOP cash swamping Dems, and, hey, look, a brutal weekend
More bad polls. More bad fundraising numbers. More dreary talk on the Sunday shows.
It added up to a brutal weekend for Democrats, as the consensus among election analysts, already bearish on the party’s prospects, took a turn for the worse over the past 48 hours.
In the eyes of the experts, the House Democratic majority most likely won’t survive Nov. 2, with political handicappers expanding their predictions to envision the possibility of a Democratic wipeout.
When you have Politico making these kinds of pronouncements, you know things are bad. Then there’s the story about South Carolina Dems saying the Party has abandoned them. And West Virginia Dems pleading for help. Good news, though. Obama took time to tape an episode of Mythbusters.
