Time to push the panic button?

For Democrats the answer is yes according to The New Republic. He cites some solid reasons but really even if he's completely right it's not going to be another 1994. It will be enough to blunt Obamas further efforts are massive, drastic changes. It will also make his favorite activity (Blame Someone Else) that much easier. It will take the pressure off for the True Believers who will be able to stay safe and warm in their cocoon of belief. It will ensure Obama runs in 2012 and likely defeat. That's a long way off but I think this Gulf fiasco is turning his most ardent supporters toward re-evaluation at least. I'd wager even the redoubtable LGOMB and Kavips have doubts they won't publicly air. In fact, Kavips posted one not too long ago that reeked of whistling past the graveyard. November is a few months away and any sort of predictions are very very early (That doesn't seem to stop you -ed). If things continue apace November could be very bad for Democrats. Certainly if the leak is not contained by then it will be.

Panic buttons often get pushed too early in the final analysis, primarily because they got pushed at all. Doing so, creates a rapid response that changes the course away from what could have happened had that panic reaction never occurred...

I think panic is a good thing; For one, I was never a believer in trusting self confidence... I only trust facts...

And all facts stack up to one conclusion... we need more government... all our problems, 1) wall street...2) health insurance...3) no oversight of BP ...were cause by Republican philosophy....a philosophy that stated, "don't oversee. Let businesses run themselves." For the Republicans to have a chance, even a remote one of winning, that secret, they they are the ones who cause all these problems, can never get out...

It becomes harder to keep that secret hidden, once panic sets in on the other side...

That's why 'panic' is definitely a good thing for the American people....
