POLITICS: Not Enough Blame

As the New Republic said of Al Gore, "bitterness is not a policy position." Michael Barone, with his usual analytical precision, says the Democrats have failed as well to learn this lesson on the economy; as a result, Barone thinks the Democrats won't benefit nationally from the woes of the economy. I would put it this way: people who have lost their jobs may blame Republicans, but people whose 401(k)s got hit mostly remember that most of the damage happened before Bush got the centerpiece of his economic plan passed in May 2001, let alone after it became effective, or after September 11.
