BACK TO THE FUTURE….Is it 1993 all over again?

Republicans are starting to find themselves in the same kind of political environment that Democrats faced in the summer of 1993 ? the year before the Democrats lost control of both houses of Congress for the first time in 40 years.

Reverse the party labels and the circumstances are strikingly similar.

Now, as then with the other party, Republicans’ ethics are under assault. Their opposition denounces their vicelike control as “arrogant.” Their ambitious agenda risks overreach and public backlash. Their popularity is sinking. A unified opposition party is holding off until closer to the next election before offering its own agenda ? thus withholding any good target for counterattack.

Well, we can hope. And with that, I’m off to see Star Wars. Have a good Friday!

(And speaking of Friday, here’s some top notch kitten blogging to help the day go by. Enjoy.)
