Both sides are set to prove the other a liar:
House Majority Leader:
Rob, if we mobilize all of our resources and mobilize our voters to the polls on Election Day, we’re going to do just fine. There’s no question we have a very difficult political environment. First, we knew this when George Bush was re-elected in ’04—that the midterm election for the President’s party during the sixth year of that presidency, the average loss for the last 150 years is 41 seats. We knew history was working against us. And so, we’ve worked hard.Schumer:
But I really do believe, as I get around the country, there are some open seats where we’ve got some difficulty. We’ve got a couple incumbents who are in trouble for various reasons, who are in very difficult races. But beyond that, there are a lot of races where we’re slightly ahead or we’re slightly behind. And this is where mobilizing our voters over the next eight days—making sure that they vote—will put us in a solid position.
The chairman of the Senate Democratic campaign expressed confidence Sunday his party can win a Senate majority in the Nov. 7 elections, calling the vote "more and more a referendum on George Bush."Hurricane or April Shower? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
"We're right on the edge. Every week things get better and better," said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. "With the exception of one candidate, no other Republican candidate uses a four-letter word - B-U-S-H. They're running away from him."
My prediction? Republicans maintain control of congress. Is that the best solution? Probably. Am I excited about the corruption that's become evident and the utter lack of cooperation or fiscal restraint? Not particularly.
But Pelosi? Dems in control of congress? Can you say pull-out-of-Iraq-faster-than-you-can-blink? Say what you will about the situation over there, or how we got there -- to leave now would be like Saigon all over only worse.
