Whaddya Mean, We Lost?

There's a lot to be said for being oblivious.  None of it good.

After repeated losses in recent elections.  Democrats have blamed everyone and everything but themselves.  The latest round of fingerpointing is disheartening.  There's even talk that Bush is to blame.  Since the Democrats claim they inherited all evils from Bush (though they were running Congress at the end), and they haven't been able to fix it, it's still Bush's fault.

Move on, folks.

Never mind that they wanted to inherit our issues.  That's why they ran.  They wanted to have a crack at fixing this mess.  Now that their policies are making it worse, they blame the mess, not their policies.

It seems like a large part of this country understands that their leadership is not working.  It's not a party issue, it's a direction issue.  So, we are systematically removing arrogant, tax-payer funded members who believe it is better to pass an unwanted law (to preserve their legacy) than to listen to us in the first place.  They know it is unpopular, but they want to pass it first, and then fix it (maybe).  They want to ram it through, and then tell us they know better than we do.

Politicians do not appear to be getting the message.

The solution is simple.  Remove them and replace them with those who listen.  On both sides.  As I have mentioned before, I am a registered Republican but have not voted a straight ticket in years.  I have and will continue to vote for Democrats, Republicans, or Independents.  I will vote for those who will listen and work for us, not for their party.

If Massachusetts can do it, so can we.
