For GOP, Bad Gets Worse in Northeast
Sour mood isn't the word for it, in my environs. Actually, it wouldn't be prudent to publish the word for it.
For GOP, Bad Gets Worse in Northeast:
PHOENIXVILLE, Pa. -- When it comes to President Bush and the Republican Congress, Rep. Jim Gerlach says voters in his suburban Philadelphia district are in a 'sour mood.'
That's why when it comes to his reelection, the two-term incumbent says 'the name of the game' is to convince those same voters that he can be independent of his own party. He has turned his standard line about Bush -- 'When I think he's wrong, I let him know' -- into a virtual campaign slogan, repeated in interviews and TV ads. (Imagine that, an independent Republican. I believe they are extinct, aren't they?)
