The Collapse of the Democratic Congress

The Democrats swept into power in Congress in 2006, largely on the failure of the Republicans to deliver. Now it’s their turn to look like blundering idiots. Public approval of Congress is now at only 17%, an historic low. Bush’s approval rating is almost double that (32%). What went wrong?

Peter Wehner provides a good summary of how the Democrats blew it. He concludes:

Republicans have an opportunity. The anger that was directed toward the GOP is now being re-directed toward Democrats, who are finding that governing is more difficult than merely opposing.
