Democrats' Problems

I had heard in passing in some weekend television show that Americans perceived the Democratic Party as inimical to religion. I did some digging today and sure enough, according to a Pew Research study on Americans' political beliefs and religion:
Yet the Democrats' strength in this area is overshadowed by a sharp erosion in the number of Americans who believe the party is friendly toward religion. Only about three-in-ten (29%) see the Democrats as friendly toward religion, down from 40% last August. Meanwhile, a solid majority (55%) continues to view the Republicans as friendly toward religion.
And, according to a new Time/CNN/Gallup poll:
13% said George W. Bush is "most responsible for the problems in New Orleans after the hurricane"; 18% said "federal agencies"; 25% said "state and local officials"; 38% said "no one is to blame"; 6% had no opinion. -- 29% said that "top officials in the federal agencies responsible for handling emergencies should be fired"; 63% said they should not; 8% had no opinion.
And that after days of the MSM doing what they do best: covering the bickering in Washington over blame.

Keep workin' it, Democrats. Your strategy of the past six years is holding y'all in good stead. At least from my point of view. Maybe you should remind people about Florida, the economy, tax cuts, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, the Downing Street memo, Cindy Sheehan, "no blood for oil," and all that. It's all good and something has to stick eventually. Doesn't it?

Keep it up. You've still got two more years to get an impeachment in.
