Dispirited

Posted by Teresa at 3:09 PM
Not good news for Republicans. There's been so much talk about the presidential
election the story of a dispirited Republican base has not been scarcely covered.
So in November even if Dems don't get the office of the presidency, they might still
be big winners:
WASHINGTON - The news just keeps getting worse for
Republicans in this year's campaigns for Congress.

When New York Rep. Tom Reynolds announced he was retiring
Thursday, that made it 26 current GOP lawmakers who are calling
it quits, opening up chances for Democrats this November. Only
seven seats are being given up by the Democrats, who see bright
opportunities to fatten their majority in the House — and the Senate
as well.

That doesn't even count this month's shocker in Illinois, where
Democrat Bill Foster won a special election in the district long
represented by Republican former Speaker Dennis Hastert.
Democrats say Foster's win to replace the retiring Hastert is a
sign of things to come in the general election, when all House seats
are on the line.

That certainly sounds ominous, but the dems are not so stable either. Drudge has been more then happy to cover this trend for months now. lol
