That headline sums up the GOP strategy for 2006. The Washington Post fills in the gaps.
Bush advisers have turned to the election as the most important chance to rewrite the troubled narrative of his presidency and allow him to recover enough to govern his last two years…
The plan is to focus on tax cuts, immigration, and national security from now until the election and hope the voters see that as a reason not to kick us out of office. It comes down to a strategy of crossing our fingers and praying.
Honestly, given the current stink in Washington – with both GOP and Democrat members under investigation for selling the democracy to the highest bidder – I think a “Dump Them All” movement would gather a lot of steam right now.
