They are running so fast that they are tripping over themselves trying to get out. I wish this were true but its not, what is true is that Bush is loosing his core supporters.
Almost every arm of the conservative movement is turning on Bush and the Republican Congress because of falling approval ratings, massive spending, failure to tighten immigration laws, restrict same-sex marriage, end the iraq war and all of the political scandals has had conservatives fleeing Bush and the Republican controlled Congress.
The GOP is well aware of the problem and plans to win back its conservative base by planning a summer offensive to win back conservatives with a mix of policy fights and warnings of how a Democratic Congress would govern. Albeit this plan include going back to blaiming Same-sex marriage and abortion. Goodness how stupid can people be.
