From Newsweek:

"But the new poll carries sobering news for Democrats, too, still on their post-victory high. Just about everyone believes the Republicans lost the 2006 midterms more than the Democrats won it. Presented with a list of factors that may have contributed to the Democrats’ success, 85 percent of Americans said the “major reason” was disapproval of the administration’s handling of the war in Iraq, 71 percent said disapproval of Bush’s overall job performance, 67 percent cited dissatisfaction with how Republicans have handled government spending and the deficit, 63 percent said disapproval of the overall performance of Republicans in Congress, 61 percent said Democrats’ ideas and proposals for changing course in Iraq. Tellingly, just 27 percent said a major reason the Democrats won was because they had better candidates."

The Republicans lost because Bush/Rumsfeld mis-managed the war in Iraq (not because we went to war, if they'da had a plan to finish it, well . . . ) and because the Republicans were arrogant and corrupt. They needed a wake up call, and got one. Hopefully, they'll not hit the snooze button.

I'm with you on that one. Let it pass Congress and face the prez. Veto is one of his duties, make him do it.

And let's get that line-item veto thingie. Parties only talk about wanting it when their team is in power. Out of power they whine about usurpation of constitutional authority.
