Countdown On Terror And Politics


Last night on Countdown, guest host Brian Unger talked about Bush's response to the NSA ruling and the fact that "Security Moms" and "NASCAR Dads" are now distancing themselves from the Republican Party.

Bush "strongly disagrees" with the decision of the judge. Wow, isn't that shocker? The best part is when he says that people oppose this program "don't understand the world we live in." Apparently, Bush doesn't understand the country he lives in, or the laws that govern this country.

Of course, Bush couldn't resist bringing up the terror plot in the U.K. last week. I wonder if the NSA wiretapping had some influence on that? Nah - I highly doubt it. As matter of fact, everything I have read points to old fashioned police work being the number one key in busting these guys.

Later in the segment, Unger and Dana Milbank talk about the change in voters around the country and in particular, "Security Moms" and "NASCAR Dads". Polling is showing that these two groups are turning sour on the GOP. This could result in an interesting change for this fall. I doubt that many of them will go out and vote for Democrats as much as they will decide to just skip voting this year. I guess when you constantly go out and try to scare people then they get tired of being scared, or tired of listening to your same old stale lines over and over again.
