[QUOTE=sackdance;4038058]In a special election in June 2009 a Democrat candidate for Congress, Bill Owens, beat a Republican and a Tea Party candidate in a conservative upstate district (NY-23).
Liberals called it a bellwether. Maybe it was, because Owens won again in 2010.
Then again, liberals insist this inflation we're seeing in gas, food, etc. is not actually inflation, but part of economic recovery. That if we sell our homes we'll be able to... oh, wait. That's some "if".
[B]Things not so rosy for Democrats with Obama underperforming Carter[/B]. At some point the news cycle will have to focus on this economy and we're gonna see how popular the Democrats are.
Unless, of course, Obama has, in fact, taken the car out of the ditch? Anyone?[/QUOTE]
In what way is Obama underperforming Carter? :confused:
