Seriously??! Hello, it’s the economy, stupid!. Do these people seriously believe that if preemployment was 6% that Democrats would’ve still lost the House because voters don’t like health care reform or Obama? Get real. And if they think it’s Obama’s fault that the economy isn’t doing better, what exactly should he have done– more tax cuts?
This is also a good time to mention that I didn’t watch a minute of TV commentary about the election last night. These days all the smart commentary is on-line. A lot of those guys (i.e., the ones I link to all the time) actually get Political Science and are much the smarter for it. Political Science as a discipline has its strengths and weaknesses, but we damn sure have Congressional elections pretty well figured out.
