I am tired of mean spirited, hateful, pandering, partisan politics. I wish congress would make a stand for something personal, something that they believe in. I wish they would stop pandering to lobbyists, and start THINKING. Stop focusing on who's to blame, and for once focus on who needs help. Stop shooting holes in other people's ideas, and collaborate to make life better for the people of the American republic.
After 8 years of Bush/Rove dirty politics, and the past few months of the vicious maneuvering over the 'health care bill' I'm disgusted. I can understand disagreeing with health care reform, but folks on the right are not making sensible articulate arguments . They are shouting insults, intimidating, and laughing in the faces of people who are pleading for medical care. Not to mention the reprehensible behavior of Senator Joe Wilson. I may have disagreed with the policies of George W. Bush, but I respect the office enough to let the man speak without trying to shout him down.
After all of this abuse, folks on the left are gun-shy. You tell me what makes more sense this or a man who fell off a mountain and busted up his face so badly that "
Afterward... (wears) a beard and sunglasses to hide the scars" making a joke about being one of the "beautiful people?" Maybe I'm just being naive, but the latter makes far more sense to me.
Seems like I'm not the only one who's fed up.
I don't know what the answer is, but more and more people in public office are behaving like pouty children. I am believing more and more that the people who would seek public office are the last ones who should have it.
