Politicians Need to Actually Accomplish Something

I hear campaign speeches from the President that masquerade as serious policy proposals. From the Republican Presidential debaters, I hear all manner of blather and nonsense. From Congress, no original ideas, no clue just sound bites that pander to the lowest common denominator.

From all the interest groups: tea partiers, State Governors, local government, talk radio/TV types plus those from all the above named groups: all I hear is people blaming and demonizing some other group. It's always somebody else's fault and 'I got mine the rest of you can go scratch.' I hear a lot of blame and scapegoating but see damn little serious action on repairing the problems.

I got news for the whole gaggle of you:

1. At some point you are going to have to actually perform rather than just talk blovate, refer it to committees, find a distraction, spin and tap dance.  'Spin' is not accomplishment.
2. At some point for the good of the American Nation, failure will not be an option. (Think Battle of Britain if you don't understand.)
3. At some point you will have to put the good of the Nation ahead of all other things.
4. At some point you we all have to stop acting like 6 year olds fighting in a school yard and start acting like responsible adults.


  1. In other words, at some point the people elected to lead, actually have to lead!

  2. Yup. And things like plan and pass real legislation not just feel good stuff. With great power comes great responsibility and all that.
