When Bush and the Republican's approval ratings were sinking, the Democrat "strategists" all warned their clients (actually, i'm not even sure if these people even have clients or if they just blab to the press all day) that they should just sit back and ride the wave and not actually jump on the sentiment and try to win people over with an alternative. The fear was the Democrats might put people off by looking... partisan (whatever that means). Well...
President Bush's approval rating rebounded from its lowest point a month ago and now stands at 38 percent. That is five points higher than it was in May, though still weak enough to cause Republicans to worry about their electoral chances in November.
The idea should have been to pound away at the Republicans and their failed policies. Instead, people got pissed at the Republicans, but in the absence of anything better being out there, they went back to the fold.

the Democrats suck. i have said it before, and i'll keep saying it until i see a change. they have had every opportunity to succeed, especially in the face of everything the current administration has done (things that are completely illegal and impeachable, mind you), and yet they can't manage to eke out a win. they're pathetic. the Republicans are practically handing the opportunity to them. they're just too stupid to take it. Losers.
