O-tay, somebody is gonna have to walk me through this one. I know we've all been unfairly transplanted to the barren steppes of Trumpmenistan, but in what parallel universe does the salvation of the Republican Senate in the 2018 midterms turn out be the least popular President in history prior to Trump?
That's right, the Alfred E Newman of politics is staggering back into the saddle again, and riding off to the rescue. George W Bush, Dick Cheney's personal Howdy Doody, is charging into battle to save the delicate balance of GOP power in the Senate. And here I thought, with generic polling showing the Democrats +14, and political analysts beginning to speak earnestly of a slim, but definitely doable path for Democrats to regain the Senate in November, it couldn't get any better than this. What a dumbass I am!
A quick history lesson. This is George W Bush we're talking about here. This is the man who plunged us into the two longest, and most futile wars in US history, and nearly plunged the world into a global financial meltdown. The same President, that in 2008, they drained the fuel tanks from Air Force One, and pulled the battery cables from the armored Suburban, to keep him from opening his mouth in public to campaign for GOP candidates. And now, he's going to stem the tide of the blue wave in the Senate?
