Hottest seller at Martha’s Vineyard this year: Bush “Miss Me Yet?” t-shirts

posted at 3:03 pm on August 19, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via JWF, a video gloss on the amazing fact that Dubya is now polling six points better than Obama in frontline (i.e. vulnerable) House districts. That’s not according to Rasmussen either; it’s from the Democrats’ own surveys. No wonder the White House is looking around for a new villain: If even the Bushitler seems preferable to swing voters, who’s left to demonize?

An earnest question for lefties: Given the state of the Democrats’ polling, can we finally dispense with the insane yet oft-repeated argument during the ObamaCare debate that passing the bill was the surest way to mitigate losses in the midterms? There were two political reasons to pass O-Care, as you’ll recall: (1) Long-term, passage will set the country irreversibly on the path to socialized medicine, which in turn will create a culture of dependency guaranteeing big Democratic victories far into the future; (2) short-term, passage will cheer liberals and inspire them to turn out in November whereas letting the bill drop will break liberal hearts all over again a la 1993 and will ensure a Republican rout in the midterms. Can we now agree, with the GOP reaching historic leads on the generic ballot, that the second reason has turned out to be a little, well, insane? Or is the new argument that letting the bill drop last year to focus on the economy somehow would have produced an even more gigantic Republican generic ballot lead? No bill = Bushitler outpolling Obama by 10 points instead of six in frontline districts, in other words? Seriously? Click the image to watch.

People this really is not funny. We hired a community organizer to be President and we are in deep crap. We have likely the least business knowledgeable administration ever.
It is unbelievably important that the Dems lose both houses this year.

All I can say is it that, I love it.

Obama ……………….. no leader.

I like the shirt.

Do they sell a sleeveless version of that shirt for Michelle? It’ll be sure to be a fashion hit.

Horror! The job-sucking Democrats have set their vampire fangs on our economy and are bleeding it dry. RUN!!

I’m wearing the shirt right now! What a coincidence. My parents got it for me in Port Jefferson, New York, earlier this month. I wore it proudly as I walked around Queens today.

Good analysis, but I suspect it’s simpler than that. Clinton dropped the bid for Hillarycare in his first couple years, and the Republicans took over Congress. So naturally, the Obama administration will do the opposite and pass Obamacare one way or the other. They figure if they take the opposite tack and go for it, they’ll get the opposite result. I think it’s finally becoming clear to them that they’ll just wind up losing bigger.

They’d have to be imitation, since the guy doesn’t pray at all.

Nobody in the W.H. has reported anyone assuming the position at sunset at any time so far.

Likewise, the “absolutely Christian” first family couldn’t be bothered to make it to Christmas services, and had to be browbeaten to make it for Easter.

To be fair in quoting this, TJ was dissing the notion of the Trinity with this quote but I think it applies to zerO’s policies well.
