Congress votes on things in public, on national TV, meaning there is no way to manipulate the results before anyone sees them. Ahem...

Bush's popularity never recovered from his slow response to Katrina's devastation on the Gulf Coast.
LOL... yeah, it was the hurricane that did him in. Riiight... but oddly, when hurricanes hit New York City, it swings the election toward Obama as Christie stumbles over himself to praise the guy.

The reality is that it was his amnesty proposal, his idea to prolong and add risk to Social Security by privatizing it, continued foot-dragging on Iraq and the Harriet Miers fiasco that caused Bush's downfall. NOT Katrina.

There are a couple of reasons for this, the main one being cited by Bill Clinton in a very crass way:  0bama is luckier than a dog with 2 . . . uh, ah, hmmmm . . .

Certainly, his first presidential election wasn't luck, but he was lucky to be the face and voice that the Dems wanted on the ticket.  He's an empty suit, completely clueless about the details of what's going on around him.  He represents hard core ideology but has no idea how to get things done.  That's why he can't run the government as smoothly as his campaign.  He didn't run his campaign.  He doesn't run the government.
