Up From the Bottom

Over at Hugh Hewitt's blog, Patrick Ruffini makes a solid case that the GOP's fortunes are slowly in ascension.

One other factor that shouldn't be underestimated is the capacity of some Democrats to overplay their hands, whether it's Pete Stark's repugnant comments (discussed below), Nancy Pelosi's diplomatic overtures to Syria, or the misbegotten efforts of Democrats in the House and Senate to undermine US foreign policy.

Americans are good and sensible people. Even many of those who disagree with the President's policies oppose political grandstanding that is at best silly, and at worst destructive of US interests.

I believe Americans support the President and his policies. I think a majority of Americans agree that it's long over due for some serious swamp draining in the Middle East.

For all the hyperbolic screaching from the Democrats over the last 5 or 6 years, their net gain has been nothing more than a collective second thought from the American electorate in 2006.

Given that second thought and some tactical adjustments in Iraq, I think Americans are settling to the conclusion that we've been on the right course all along.
