I'd guess so in the absence of other information. I'm sure that the group had been discussed internally at the WH multiple times prior to Bush saying that and if not directly suggested by Rove. I'll bet that the term was used during internal discussions and no one pointed out that it might prove to be quite offensive to some of the "base" and a net negative.

Helping stab the troops in the back is now "refreshing and amusing." So long, America, it was nice while it lasted.

How long do your hysterics attacks last?

Jon Tester, Bob Casey Jr., Heath Shuler, possibly Jim Webb -- I've never seen so much raw testosterone in my life. The smell of sweaty jockstraps from the "new Democrats" is overwhelming.
Having predicted this paltry Democrat win, my next prediction is how long it will take all these new "gun totin' Democrats" to be fitted for leotards.

Damn. She's good.

What would be nice would be if we could show the "Republicans that we were willing to withhold support if they go too far left, without our actually having do so. Unfortunately, that isn't possible. Our apparent unwillingness in the past to act against left-leaning Republicans has made them oblivious to any such threats.

IMHO, the major goal of many people stirring up conservative discontent was to try to convince Republicans in Congress that they needed to acknowledge their base. Had the Republicans done so, conservatives would have rewarded them with support and everyone on the right would have benefited."

That all may be true. But what you're telling me is that some conservatives put their personal pet issues ahead of national security. Nice! What a way to claim the mantle of patriotism.

Except that in the sixth year of President Clinton's presidency Democrats gained seats in the House and there was no change in the Senate (a fact that Ann has to engage in some pretty fancy footwork to avoid mentioning later in this article.)

If I recall correctly Clinton's 6th year midterms gains were tiny compared to how much he lost on his 2nd year midterm election. By the time it rolled around it seemed that Newt and his gang were a sort of incumbency in its 4th year.

Thus the idea that incumbant parties tend to suffer losses in mid term election, with a tendency to be more pronounced in the 6th year seems consistant with even the Clinton yeras.

As you pointed out, it is not as easy to explain, thus I find it fairly reasonable to gloss over the point for brevity since digging into it still supports her conclusion.
