By last week, many Republicans on Capitol Hill had come to believe that their interests and the presidentís may be diverging even wider.
On one end of Pennsylvania Avenue is a president who argues that history will judge him favorably on the war; on the other are increasingly skeptical Republicans who blame the presidentís stay-the-course strategy for the loss of majority status in Congress and fear that it may cost them again in 2008.
The unusual circumstances of the 2008 election may only aggravate the situation. Congressional Republicans face high stakes, particularly in the Senate, where 21 are up for re-election, compared with just 12 Democrats. And the Democrats have already put targets on senators in the Northeast and Midwest where antiwar sentiment helped Democrats sweep into office.
George Jr somehow believes that history will be the judge of his presidency. So far "history" has termed it the most damaging presidency since reconstruction
Two wars, massive debt, unheard of distrust for the presidency and the office of the president. A president with all time lows in popular approval......
Legacy? What legacy!!!
