    George Bush should make sure he puts Barak Obama, and the Dem leadership, at the top of his Christmas card list.

    Previewing Ohio

    We'll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there's one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they'd rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.

    Independents hold that view by a 44-37 margin and there are more Democrats who would take Bush back (11%) than there are Republicans who think Obama's preferable (3%.)

    A couple months ago I thought the Pennsylvanias and Missouris and Ohios of the world were the biggest battlegrounds for 2010 but when you see numbers like this it makes you think it's probably actually the Californias and the Wisconsins and the Washingtons.

    There's not much doubt things are getting worse for Democrats...and they were already pretty bad. Somehow the party base needs to get reinvigorated over the next two months or there's going to be a very, very steep price to pay.

    For the record, when we were discussing a scoring for GW's job as a president. I gave him a 3 out of 10 score, with a chance to move higher (or lower), based on the simple fact that presidential actions can't be completely judged in the short term. Their policies have long term ramifications, and one of the more controversial GW policies was/is Iraq. So should the Iraq situation pan out (geopolitical change in the ME), then maybe GW goes a tick or two higher. Regardless, he's a 3 out of 10 to me as is. Using that same logic, it's tough to grade Obama when he's in year two of his first 4 year term. So far I think his spending policies are GW².

    What does Obama think he deserves as a grade? Well...

    Reagan's approval rating fell into the 30s (in some polls) before his deficit spending plan started to yield results. It took 3 years before Reagan's record deficits managed to boost the economy enough that the wheels of capitalism started churning again. I'm not particularly worried about Obama yet, but of course the midterm elections don't look too promising, especially given the apparent complacency of the Democratic Party.

    This shows that:

    1.) Yep, the economy is still bad

    2.) People have short memories

    And that:

    3) People don't like where Obama is taking them.

    4) The liberal Democratic leadership in power since January 2007, has made a bad situation, much worse.

    5) This country is totally ****ed.

    Afterall, what does it say about our situation, when George Bush is wished back by more than 1 out of 10 Ohio democrats? That's not meant as a compliment to GW either. It's just an example of how devoid of sane leadership this country has been, for quite some time now.

    Did America think a liberal person would or could be fiscally conservative?

    Obama seemed to be the obvious difference from Bush and imperialism.

    But that they also expected fiscal tightening of spending is ludicrous.
    Liberals by their nature redistribute wealth. Bill Clinton was more moderate in this approach and both lowered the deficit while he mildly redistributed some of the wealth.
