Signs in Ohio?
But, clearly if Republicans are human like everybody else, they have got to be nervous, particularly as it relates to Iraq. We agree with former House Speaker and Republican Majority architect Newt Gingrich's very candid assessment in the Washington Post recently: "There is more energy today on the anti-Iraq, anti-gas-price, anti-changing-Social Security and I think anti-Washington [side] ... I think the combination of those four are all redounding to weaken Republicans and help Democrats. . . ."
Interesting that just last year, Ohio was looking like Florida in 2000 - for Republicans it was the celebrated bellweather state among all bellweather states, clearly defined as the ultimate mood of the national electorate to clinch a Bush win. Now, according to the RNC, all politics in Ohio isn't national anymore, it's just a state thang, displaying a selective ignorance of what's obviously got the rest of the nation - and, yes, Ohio, too - bugged.
