GOP - The Senate and the House

"Widening Gyre"

What goes up must come down. A rift developing between Republican senators and leaders of the House. It was sort of inevitable. Falling support and what it means for mid-term elections have them scrambling in different directions. The Post: "From immigration policy to energy to emergency spending, House Republican leaders are publicly breaking rank with their counterparts in the Senate, fearing that Senate efforts at compromise are jeopardizing the party's standing with conservative voters."

If the Democrats can keep their heads and make the best of the situation there is a strong chance of seeing a reversal of fortunes. In politics six months is a very long time. Consider how far the president's rating has dropped in the past six months. Don't blow it, Democrats.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction; while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
---W.B. Yeats
