Corruption, uncontrolled spending . . . . . in fact the inability to distinguish between Democrats and Republicans had a great deal to do with the ‘06 loss.
The drive-bys can characterize it any way that they like. The reality is that the strong negativity that they and the Dems have generated toward Bush and the ‘Pubbies, PLUS the actions by the ‘Pubbies that made them indistinguishable from liberals all contributed to the ‘06 loss.
So far, there is no comprehensible response by the ‘Pubbies to reclaim their conservative values in ‘08 - there is only a greater disaster by the Democrats that has given the Congress overall a lower approval rating than Bush! Definitiely something to ponder!!
Not sure that helped the Dems with their little gay friends but it worked with the Republican base.
The recent discovery that an adult male Republican, David Vitter, actually liked girls, quickly disappeared from the news once the Dems and their running dog MSM lackeys realized that was undermining the pedophile routine that was so successful in the last election.
