I linked to this below, but I thought it wise to emphasize just how unpopular Chimpy has become in his own party.
President Bush called it an “unqualified success,” but this year’s President’s Dinner, which raises money to support GOP congressional candidates, raised almost 50 percent less than last year.
The dinner’s take — $15.4 million — was a stark illustration of the changed political circumstances for Bush, who broke all known fundraising records in getting and keeping the White House.
Last year, when Bush headlined the same dinner, the event raised $27 million. This year’s take is less than 60 cents for every dollar raised in 2006.
