Quoting Admiral Kirk in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, "I'm laughing at the superior intellect."

This is a hoot:

"He has support from voters and he knows it. As though he's taking a leaf out of his predecessor's book, he's doing what Bush did and, of course, annoying the bejesus out of the Republicans. Bush, we're reminded, 'barnstormed the country in favor of a Social Security restructuring plan that he never successfully sold to leaders on Capitol Hill.'"

Apparently, you don't remember what happened. Democrats lied about the problems with Social Security and cowardly Republicans rejected any attempt to reform Social Security. Then in the 2006 mid-terms (the election after Bush was re-elected), Democrats took the majorities in the House and the Senate. One other thing: Bush was a lame duck after winning in 2004, just as Obama is now.

In 2012, Republicans are in a stronger position now than Democrats were after the 2004 elections; the House is already in Republican hands, and Senate Democrats have a lot more seats to defend than Republicans.
