Woo Hoo! President Bush Is Coming To Tennessee In Support Of Bob Corker!

Yes! I have finally gotten my wish! President Bush is coming to stump for Bob Corker and his campaign for the U.S. Senate at the end of this month.

The Tennessean reports, "A Nashville political scientist said Bush's visit could be a double-edged sword for Corker.

"If Corker is trying to get conservative voters who did not support him in the primary, bringing President Bush in is good," said Christian Grose, an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University. "But Corker still needs to be careful not to get too close to Bush, given how unpopular he is."


The state's Democratic Party chairman, Bob Tuke, responded, "We're glad to see that Bush is dragging his dismal approval ratings to Tennessee to remind voters that Bob Corker represents more of the same in the United States Senate."

In a prepared statement, Tuke said, "Everyone attending that fundraiser is buying a ticket to support the complete refusal of Washington Republicans to pass meaningful immigration reform, their refusal to increase the minimum wage, and their out-of-control federal spending. Tennesseans want change in Washington. Bush and Corker represent more of the failures we've seen for the last six years."

I cannot tell you how estatic I am that Bob Corker is having the President come to town for him.

Although Mr. Bush carried our state by double digits in the 2004 election, his approval rating in the state now stands at a dismal 39%.

This move will once again show how out of touch Bob Corker is. He is now embracing the same Republican agenda that has produced five years of nothing but failures.

Maybe Bob and the President can discuss how each of them have managed to mismanage emergencies in the past.

Good job Bob!
