Democrats worry about damage from Obama agenda

'Initiatives in Washington come with steep political price tag' By Bob Unruh Posted: November 20, 2009 ~ 11:50 pm Eastern © 2009 WorldNetDaily Democrats are starting to worry that President Obama's "charge-and-spend" debt, new "cap-and-trade" tax and "apologize to the world" agendas are going to hurt them when they run for re-election, leaving the WorldNetDaily Freedom Index ticking up to 53.2 on a 100-point scale, despite a month of relatively few major controversies. "What I think is going on here is that Democrats are growing slightly more concerned that the Democratic initiatives in Washington may come with a steep political price tag outside the beltway," said Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies. "This is especially true after the Democratic election losses in deep blue New Jersey and in swing state Virginia," he continued. "Those losses in the gubernatorial races represent a shocking reversal from 12 months ago, when Obama easily won both states in the presidential race, and discontent over Democratic efforts in Washington clearly played a part," he said. "The other major factor, I think, was the terrible economy, and voters clearly deciding it made sense to blame the Democrats for not fixing things." The monthly freedom index for November was only 53.2, up just a fraction from last month's 52.2, the lowest figure ever for the measurement. The index is an assessment of how Americans feel about a basketful of liberties. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
