Is Government better today??
The morning news shows are over and one has to wonder again if this government is so divided and incompetent that it has become dysfunctional. The Libby trial was a public lynching for a crime not committed. He was convicted on one count for obstructing justice for something not illegal. Even the jury thought this was a scam of a trial, but we spent millions to get back at the President. Now the congress wants to set deadlines for an Iraq pullout. The Democrats cant even decide on a time line between themselves, let alone come up with a comprehensive plan for leaving. The Republicans have all headed for the bunker or become quasi Democrats since the election. The senate which was typically through history a fairly reasonable body has begun a melt down. The quality of the people we are sending to Washington has degraded at an alarming rate in the past two decades, from the President down. I am to the point I don't care about Republicans or Democrats, just give me an intelligent reasonable representative who puts the people and the country first. What a breath of fresh air that would be.Yes my Sunday is now complete. Once again our elected officials were interviewed on the programs today and convinced me that we should be allowed as voters to have a do-over when the situation warrants it. The congress women form California could not even make a coherent argument for her position on Fox News. At one point she confused herself trying to make a point. Reagan would say is your government better today than it was 10 years ago??? I don't know many people who would say yes. I know my answer would be do-over with them all.
