Rearranging The Deck Chairs

Here’s a first ever TCFW Instant Push Poll for you dedicated readers and assorted lurkers.

Q. Which of the following groups is the more pragmatic and realistic?

A. The Bush White House

B. Congressional Republicans

C. Members of the Right Blogsphere

D. Conservative Media

Need a hint? Ok, think Social Security or Tom Delay. You need another one? Well, consider which group the people who keep them in their job hold to a greater accountability?

 

The correct response would be B. Congressional Republicans. Which by the way is also the answer to the question – Which group is currently flirting with political suicide?

 

That long, Jethro Bodean stare you see these days on the face of Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa), is the look of a candidate unable to restrain himself from personally sabotaging his own 2006 re-election campaign. The timing was suppose to have the exact opposite effect, when the Bush White House chose him as the point man in the Senate to advocate and usher through their Social Security Overhaul Plan. Which was also payback for sticking with the White House (and against the party’s Conservative base) in support of Arlen Specter’s re-election.

 

The 39% percent of Americans now polled as against Bush’s personal private account plan is just one part of the awful truth being delivered to Congressional Republicans by GOP Pollsters. That number having declined 8% percent from the previous month demonstrates that the more Bush’s Factual Mystery Tour is extended, the more he’ll be playing to smaller houses. (UPDATE: At this writing, a more current Social Security or Tom Delay. You need another one? Well, consider which group the people who keep them in their job hold to a greater accountability?

(UPDATE: At this writing, a more currentABC News/Washington Post Poll puts support for Bush’s plan now at 35% percent.)

 

However, refusing to admit defeat or that the minds of 56% percent of Americans are made up (and will not change), Right bloggers and other Apologists of the CEC are suddenly in the mood to talk details and/or compromise on Social Security.

 

But, as anyone who spars regularly with just such a despicable bunch of hypocrites and liars will tell you, the Right doesn’t pull their rarely used olive branch out of their ass, unless they smell defeat.

 

Yet this time, they should not have fucking bothered at all.
