Democrats Banking on Failures

Politics, taxes

If you've heard any of the recent rhetoric from either of the Democratic candidates who are still in the race to seek the nomination of their party for the presidency this fall, you know that the Democrats are looking for a whole lot of failures.  They looking from failures from the current Congress, they are looking for failures from Bush, they are looking for failures from the other candidates.  The more incompetency that is presented between now and November will only help them to look somewhat credible  if a Democrat is elected in November.
