BBC's Mark Mardell isn't buying it

Mark isn't buying it that "...after last year's election people are flooding back to the conservative cause."

Well, what do you expect from the BBC? There's just one problem Mark, Conservatives Finish 2009 as No. 1 Ideological Group

"The rather abrupt three-point increase between 2008 and 2009 in the percentage of Americans calling themselves conservative is largely owing to an increase -- from 30% to 35% -- in the percentage of political independents adopting the label. Over the same period, there was only a slight increase in professed conservatism among Republicans (from 70% to 71%) and no change among Democrats (at 21%)."

Do BBC reporters in America have a clue as to what's going on? Apparently not. This made my head spin.

"The President's intention to focus on jobs and the economy this year is well known, but there are at least a couple of problems."

Well known by whom? And how's that focus working out Mark?

"There are no new measures in the pipeline, no new narrative to tell."

Oh. That might be because the President's focus wasn't and isn't on jobs and the economy, it's on the elephant in the room Mark failed to mention - health care.
