GOP to Lose the Support of Base in 2006 Congressional Elections?

In 1992, old George H W Bush lost his re-election bid because the conservative base sat on their hands. He had broken his highly touted promise -- "Read my lips, no new taxes."

In six months' time, the conservative base may do likewise, and the result will be defeat for the GOP in the Senate and possibly the House. See Peggy Noonan's powerful essay on this topic below.
