The Mark Foley imbroglio is drowning out Bush’s cut-and-run rhetoric and even Bob Woodward’s revelations, say many analysts.

Again, we think this is a completely unsatisfactory way for the Democrats to win in November, but que sera, sera.


AP:

President George W. Bush’s campaign strategy of painting Democrats as soft on terrorism has been stalled by a congressional sex scandal, jeopardizing Republican hopes of holding the House of Representatives, analysts say.

Analysts said the timing of the scandal, a month before the November 7 elections, could be trouble for Republicans who already have been feeling heat from voters over the Iraq war.

“This is a really serious problem for the Republicans right now,” said Merle Black, a political scientist professor at Emory University in Atlanta. “We don’t know how this is going to play out. We’re a month away from the election. But right now, it’s a major problem for the Republican leadership.”
