Next year's elections "will change American politics for a generation"

In an op-ed column in The Hill, Brent Budowsky, a former staffer for the late Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, writes:

The stage is set; the die is cast; there is panic in the air from Republicans, and landslide in the air for Democrats. The bell now tolls for the Republican Party, and if they campaign as the do-nothing party of obstructionism to preserve a repellant status quo, the tidal wave is coming and a realigning election will change American politics for a generation.

HA!!! If the Democrats take Congress and the White House in 2008 (which they might), and they try to push crap like socialized medicine and closing our borders (which they probably will), I give them exactly two years before they're the minority party again...same thing as what happened after Clinton's first two years in office.

Nobody wants to live in a socialist republic, Rascal. They don't want socialized medicine, they don't want exorbitant taxes, and they don't give a damn about saving unions or stopping illegal immigration if it means paying higher prices at the stores. The Democratic party's general fiscal policy platform is inherently bad, and the only reasons the party hasn't died off with the dodo are that our government has effectively barred third parties from office and because the current Republican leadership is so mind-bogglingly incompetent.

Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Chris Dodd can't even manage to cut off the funding for a massively unpopular war run by the worst president in U.S. history...and they're the ones in control of the money!!! You think these idiots are going to put together a competent government? Talk about naive.
