Dave!I wrote a long political rant over the past 20 minutes, but deleted it because it was just too easy. President Obama and the Democrats are fucking things up at every turn, nobody can get their shit together, and everybody is acting so surprised. Well, almost everybody.

Democrats are surprised because nothing is really changing and they were delirious with hope that it actually would.

Republicans are surprised because nothing is really changing and they were scared shitless that it actually would.

I, on the other hand, am surprised that people are surprised that nothing is really changing. It's politics as usual in our Nation's capitol... only the players have changed. Personal agendas and personal politics still rule. Lobbyists and money still make the decisions. And it's the citizens, as usual, who are worse off because of it.

Sadly, that's just the way our system works. The only difference from one politician to the next is degrees. And since people are more interested in fighting than coming up with solutions, we end up with the government we deserve.

I remain... unsurprised.

    I would love to see an uncensored version of this blog, with all the deleted posts put back in 😛

    Happy holidays Dave

    Exactly. It’s why I can’t stand and barely trust ANYone crazy/ deceitful enough to even want to BE a politician, anymore.

  3. Finn says:

    I’m not nearly as cynical as you. Yet. But I am frustrated and disappointed.

  4. Well one thing has changed at the White House at least. I don’t cringe with embarrassment whenever the President gives a speech. So there’s that.

    Well said! It’s foolish to expect a handful of men and women that have created a life for themselves that consists of backdoor deals and business wrangling, to understand or consider the needs of common people. If the American people want change they need to change their own behavior and stop depending on these worthless elected officials. We need volunteers not paid spokesmen.

    My friend Kris would love this post. He and I go the rounds on these very same point of political mucking.

    I hope we see a lot more change in Obama’s next 3 years.

    Would it be possible to get this post stitched on a pillow or something? 🙂
