President George W. Bush is picking his political comments with strategery these days. No use gettin’ into a fight just yet.
“I’m confident we’ll hold the White House in 2008,” Bush told donors at the Republican Governors Association annual dinner, which raised a record $10.6 million for GOP gubernatorial candidates.”And I don’t want the next Republican president to be lonely,” Bush said. “And that is why we got to take the House, retake the Senate, and make sure our states are governed by Republican governors.”
I’m not convinced that the GOP has a great chance to take a majority of the House, the Senate AND call the White House home. It’s more likely that we’ll have a McCain presidency, but a Democratic majority in congress. I don’t think the Democrats will be able to run on an anti-war message like they did in ’06. They’ve been able to accomplish exactly nothing since taking the reigns more than a year ago. I think the electorate will be sure not to allow a one party majority rule in 2008.
George W. Bush, White House
