Obama’s speech on Iraq. Think Bush will get any credit?

Later today, President Obama will be speaking to nation from the Oval Office on the end of combat in Iraq. While watching this speech, we should note where Obama, Biden, and the rest of the Democrats stood when the successful surge was implemented by President George W. Bush.

I originally saw this video on the Third Base Politics blog, but I am posting it again so it can get even more notoriety (not saying that it couldn’t on TBP, but still).

Things are looking good for Boehner and Co.

According to a recent Gallup poll,  Republicans are ahead by 51-41 margin-the largest margin GOP has ever had in 68 years of generic polling. Compare that to September of 2006 when Gallup polled the Dems at a 52-41 margin, John Boehner and the House GOP have a lot to smile about.

These generic polls are a good way to gage the overall mood of the electorate, and right now folks are not happy with the Democrats. Their message of blaming former President George W. Bush is not resonating, and it shows.
