Our so called leaders are, for all intents and purposes, a joke these days. From Mayor Bloomburg blaming the Times Square bomb on someone unhappy with Obamacare. To the lame response from the Obama Administration trying to avoid the reality that this was yet another terrorist attack on US soil under their watch. Expect more of the same.
BTW: They just arrested a Pakinstani-American. Gee, sounds like a Tea Partier to me.
And lets not forget the pathetic response to the oil spill in the gulf. Forget Bush and Katrina, which was a failure of state and local government first. Here we have what amounts to inaction and utter stupidity, which is either intended so they can use it as an excuse to block offshore drilling, or they are just showing their lack of worth, once again.
They seem to be looking for ways to be partisan instead of solving problems. But that’s where they usually fall down because today’s politicians are all about creating bogus crises they can “solve”. Or creating the illusion of action when there is none. A classic example is the GM scam, where billions were loaned to GM, and an Obama appointed GM head claims that the economy is roaring back and they were able to pay back the government. Nope. It’s another Federal shell game where they use our money to try to fool us into thinking the government is saving something when it is merely creating the illusion of progress.
November is looking more important by the day.
UPDATE: There you go. Mission accomplished.
