Democrats will love reading this WaPo piece:
Republican efforts to craft a policy and political agenda to carry the party into the midterm elections have stumbled repeatedly as GOP leaders face widespread disaffection and disagreement within the ranks.
Anxiety over President Bush’s Iraq policy, internal clashes over such divisive issues as immigration, and rising complaints that the party has abandoned conservative principles on spending restraint have all hobbled the effort to devise an election-year message, said several lawmakers involved in the effort.
In 2002-2004, the Democrats appeared to run on platforms of “Anything But Bush.” It looks like the GOP platform in 2006 will be “We’re Not Bush.” Considering the Senate Majority Leader was handpicked by Bush, and Bush has signed EVERY piece of legislation passed by the Republican Congress, this should be an interesting sell.
Good luck with that, guys.
