You mean like the Republicans and conservatives did during the Clinton years? Sure.
I agree there were reasons the Democrats lost the last election. Some good, some bad. I happen to think that Karl Rove-style character assassination played a bigger part than it should have, but oh well...
But a lot of people seem to have mistaken what I consider a pretty normal swing of the political pendulum for some sort of permanent sea change in the country. I think there's a good chance they're going to be sorely disappointed during the next few elections.
If so, Bush's main legacy will be the appointments he's made to the Supreme Court. That's not a bad thing to my mind. One of the functions of the Supreme Court is to act as a counterbalance and a flywheel, to provide some sort of continuity in government. His judges will act as a check on liberal administrations, just as earlier courts have acted as a check on conservative ones.
