The message from the Louisiana Senate seat boils down to Louisianans not wanting to vote in another Bush "rubber stamp"
automaton as "their" senator. I guess the most poigniant embarassment for the Bushites comes from the rebuffing of their hopelessly ham-handed "overplaying" of their mid-term win in their P.R. machinary onslaught to gain a little extra yardage more just to show off their "new mandate" a little more.
Considering the economic blow-back from this Iraq "regime change" gamble with new deficits as far as the eye can see, and will make Daddy bush's deficit largesse look "good" , whatever happens will be happening on the Republican's One Party Gov't's watch.
They well know that it was a slumping economy that sank Pappa Bush's 90+ approval rating and his deficits that allowed a solid Texas Republican Businessman, Ross Perot ,to steal 10% of the vote the lionshare of which came from Republicans mad at Bush for the tax hike that wsas "necessasry to start be3gining to get fiscally responsible and atleast start to pay down Reagan's htper-ratcheted *2 Trillion$ End of Cold War Debt*.
With the Repubs owning both the Pres' Office of Management & Budget AND the Congressional Budget Office , who will ever be able to trust the "voodoo" accounting numbers that the Bushites will try an "sell us".....again! ;-)
I'm on on full Watch Yer Wallets Watch now as a new wave of "Enronomics" goes federal.
Hey ,former Gov. of Texas Dubya had ol' "Kenny Boy" as his teacher/contributor. We're about to see how well the Federal books can really get cooked now.....*Texas-style* ;-)
