Gas Prices - GOP Needs More Than That

Sure gas prices are coming down a little. Some are suggesting this may help the GOP's chances of not getting waxed in November. It's going to take more than that.

"We're seeing that, as gas prices have come down, attitudes about the direction
of the economy have improved,"

This may be true.However, there are other things to consider.

28 percent said the economy, followed by Iraq at 25 percent and terrorism at 18
percent. Moral issues (15 percent) and immigration (14 percent) were fourth and
fifth, respectively.

That's one poll's findings. Here's the rub. Even though gas prices are coming down, domestic car makers are still getting their asses handed to them by the Asian manufacturers. Now Ol' BC wrote a paper in college several years ago about how the UAW would price their members out of a job in the next couple of decades. I missed it a little, but now it's coming to fruition. One can go on and on about the Donks' obsession with high taxes and how that has played into the situation, but that's another post. Right now it's Dubya's fault, just like Hurricane Katrina.

Here's the deal of the day. Most are fed up with the crap they've been fed. Dubya has been bludgeoned in the press. The left has proposed nothing and that looks like a very good plan at this point. People better wake up. The Socialists/Communists are making strides in this part of the world. We are really close to being able to lend those dictators a helping hand. November will tell.

If conservatives really stay home as a protest over tax and spending policies it could be really big to the future of this country.

Just a thought.
