What, no gay marriage?

Posted By on Mon, May 22, 2006 at 5:48 AM

Washington Post's lead story today is the Bush middterm strategy:

Confronting the worst poll numbers seen in the West Wing since his father went down to defeat, President Bush and his team are focusing on the fall midterm elections as the best chance to salvage his presidency and are building a campaign strategy around tax cuts, immigration and national security.

Oh, yeah, and there's also the "choice" theme. "We may be bad, but do you really think Democrats are better?"

The LA Times covers the restive right-wing base:

Some Republicans are so discouraged by the direction of the country and the record of their party —including the growth of federal spending, turmoil in Iraq, and Bush's immigration policy — that they have begun wondering if Republicans might be better off losing control of Congress.

"Two years in the political wilderness would do us a lot of good," said one Republican member of Congress who asked not to be named because of his heretical view.
