Bush and Obama

Fall of 2013 is starting to feel like the fall of 2005 - when Hurricane Katrina and Harriett Miers problems dropped President Bush's poll numbers underwater.
President Obama's poll numbers are sinking fast.
The Republican opposition to Obamacare -- their constant "hysterical warnings" about it, their "extremist obstructionism" in attempting to derail it -- sure looks something like Truth and Wisdom now.
The other thing Democrats will say is, mockingly, "Well, gee, I guess that really dooms Obama in his 2016 reelection, huh? Psych-- he's not running again. Ha ha!"
Yeah I know they'll say that because we said stuff like that about Bush's declining support from 2005 to 2008.
But while Obama is not on the ballot, an awful lot of Democrats are, and those Democrats all supported Obamacare, including voting against attempts to give meaning to Obama's "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" promise.
And Bush's unpopularity fueled the rise of Obama.
It's going to be a fun year - if you're not a Democratic officeholder.
