haha, I kid, I kid..
I haven't REALLY written about politics for awhile, because, frankly, it gives me a headache. I truly believe in our President, I do. And I believe that most people in Washington, are really there to make a difference, and to change things. Perhaps its not how I think it should be done, but I think their hearts are in the right place. Maybe that just makes me seem idealistic, or naive or something, but that's how I feel.
However, what is going on with the no-communication, no-Bipartisanship stuff? I don't think its just one party's fault either, I think all of Washington right now is to blame. I have to say, I wanted the Democrats to use their majority, I wanted them to do what I feel is right, and pass the health care bill. But I also see that they went about it all wrong, and now we have to live with those consequences. Nevertheless, they're not the only ones that are guilty. This "say no" political party of tea-partying Republicans is driving me completely crazy! I heard someone say that they'll just say no for 3 years, until Obama's gone, because they don't want to help the Democrats get anything done. Seriously?! If that's the case, and all we care about is winning the election in 3 freakin' years, then maybe our government is truly broken.
On a slightly different note, did you see that Ron Paul won the Straw Poll at the CPAC Convention this weekend? Really! RON PAUL?! I'll have to leave that rant for a different day.
