“its only been 2 years”

Similar to the “sky is falling” argument that I’ve seen a number of times, I’m also seeing a number of people express their surprise at how the American people voted Republicans back into power after just 2 years. But that ignores an important fact. Democrats trounced Republicans in the 2006 Congressional races. In the House of Representatives, the demographics went from being 229 Republicans, 201 Democrats and 1 Independent, to being 233 Democrats and 202 Republicans. Dems also came out with a 51-49 seat edge in the Senate.
Translation: Democrats have had 4 years to make things happen (Bush did NOT do a lot of vetoing). Not the 2 years most are saying. So maybe people don’t really have such short memories after all.
