Yet Bush and the GOP are not soaring at the polls. WHY?! ACE:
Striking distance. The economy's good. Gas prices are down. The deficit has been halved three years' ahead of Bush's schedule (which the liberals mocked as a fantasy; now they claim it was easy and inevitable). And yet... we're all acting as if the liberal critique of Republcians -- the GOP has destroyed the nation -- is, essentially, true. ...My advice: Don't take the trolls or the MSM seriously. The economy is good. AND: We are winning the GWOT. SO: GET OUT AND VOTE GOP.
ACE COMMENTER/SOMEONE: I blame the wierd "taking trolls seriously" phase here.
OR... if you want higher taxes, and if you want to cede the defense of the free world to the UN, then by all means vote for the Dems.
