While a bare majority of 51 percent called the Democrats’ victory “a good thing,” even more said they were concerned about some of the actions a Democratic Congress might take, including 78 percent who were somewhat or very concerned that it would seek too hasty a withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
Another 69 percent said they were concerned that the new Congress would keep the administration “from doing what is necessary to combat terrorism,” and two-thirds said they were concerned it would spend too much time investigating the administration and Republican scandals.
That’s nice to know, but why did the voters support the Democrats then? Apparently, GOP corruption matters more than Democrat fecklessness on national security matters. I wish we Americans would think more than two years ahead.
I say it’s time to do something about it.
Tip o’ the hat to Michelle Malkin.
