I thought that the Republicans were angry at their base in 2000 which cost them 5 seats in the senate and a few in the house. Their base was very unhappy, my parents included, that Clinton got away with all the white collar crimes he committed in the White House. When Clinton was acquitted by the Senate, the GOP was doomed for 2000.

If the Republicans were doomed in 2000, why did Bush Jr. win that year and why did the GOP retain control of Congress that year as well?

1. They didn't regain, they had control and lost seats in the house.
2. Bush Jr. didn't even win the popular vote.
3. The public was more happy with Clinton then than at any other time in his administration.

1. I didn't say regain--I said retain control of Congress, which the GOP did in 2000
2. Popular vote is irrelevant. It is only the electoral vote that couts, which Bush Jr. won.
3. Maybe, but it doesn't matter since Clinton was unable to run in 2000.

I think Bush was seen as the Washington outsider so his perception wasn't linked to the GOP in the House and Senate who lost that year. By lost I mean lost seats.

I still disproved your point that the GOP was doomed in 2000. Winning the Presidency and keeping control of Congress does not make for a doomed party.

"Doomed" maybe a strong word but they certainly weren't looking at picking any seats up in congress.
