My Disappointment in Politicians is Infinite

The repudiation of the president is now complete.

The Republicans repudiate him because of their not-so-latent racism (and the need to prove everything he does is wrong).

The Democrats repudiate him out of sheer cowardice. (Do they assume no one remembers the bailout from a Republican-led banking disaster or that health costs are one of the key factors crippling low- to middle-class families?)

All this, and four billion dollars, while doing nothing to address the day-to-day problems of the American citizen.

I voted. I will continue to vote. But it looks more and more like it will take Constitutional amendments — driven by grassroots petitions in every state — to achieve any significant change in the privileged, self-satisfied country club that our government has become.
