Counting Your Chickens

It is common wisdom that one should never count their chickens until they are hatched (and based on some things our friend over at Born Again Redneck has told us you should wait until they grow up to count them.)

I do not know how the '06 election is going to turn up because nothing is clear right now. Just a few short weeks ago the DEMs were already passing out chairmanships but things appear to be shifting at the moment. Bush's approval rating is still quite low but it is up quite a bit from a just a few weeks ago and confidence is rising. Only time will tell if this is a blip or a new trend and I will not venture a guess.

Not long ago they were planning to take some over being Governor in few more states as well, but numbers are beginning to make them nervous.

Election Day is a long ways off and anything can happen in the next four months. I think both sides need to concentrate on doing their jobs and proving themselves to the voters. Neither side should be either celebrating prematurely or panicking at this point in time.

Liberals made me a Republican, and now the Republicans have made me a Libertarian.

Well Shoprat, I'm still a Republican, no doubt about it. :)
I think that the Democrats have lost an opportunity. If they had come up with an agenda, if they had anything positive to offer, then I think they may have stood a chance. I'm not saying I could not be surprised; but I am saying that with no agenda, and with the whining, moaning and groaning being just about all you hear from them (speaking of those in Washington, D.C. of course) they seem to have indeed "snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory" as one of your readers said on a different post.

Actions and results speak louder then words, something the Dems really lack at this point in time, but like you say, who knows....

I agree with Gayle. If the Democrats had come up with anything new, they would have almost certainly done well. But it's just more of the same, and I think the GOP is getting it's act together now. I'm very hopeful.

Things are looking better. If we could get gas prices down, that would help. I read the other day that Dems are trying to give their party a more "religious" reputation by highlighting different aspects of religious views.
