Now spending is out of control. Rather than rolling back government, we have a new $1.2 trillion Medicare prescription drug benefit, and non-defense discretionary spending is growing twice as fast as it had in the Clinton administration. Meanwhile, Social Security is collapsing while rogue nations are going nuclear and the Middle East is more combustible than ever. Yet Republican lawmakers have taken up such issues as flag burning, Terri Schiavo and same-sex marriage.

They're fooling only themselves.

If Democrats take control of Congress on Nov. 7, they will form an accidental majority. They are not succeeding because of their principles or policy proposals, but simply because they have kept their heads down. Republicans, fearful of taking on big tasks and challenges, may be defeated next month by a party that offers nothing on the key issues of our day.

The article says it all its no wonder that the Republican party has alienated much of its core supporter base and moderate supporters.

So what this article is saying is that even if the Democrats win both Houses of the Senate back, it's going to be by default. If it happens though, it could mean big trouble for the Bush Crime Family that's in the White House now. The Republicans, at least the ones in the White House, refused to properly deal with Katrina when they knew for weeks that it was going to head for New Orleans.
