Tea Partiers and conservatives say it’s voters sickness of Obama’s spending that’s sending Republians to victory in the last three big elections (Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey). The first thing their champion, the winner of the Lion Of The Senate’s senate seat and GOP victor in liberal Massachusetts, does is vote for Obama’s latest spending bill. He crossed the aisle and joined up with all those nasty big government loving liberals in the Democratic party
Conservatives need to expect this from Scott Brown. He’s from Massachusetts and he wants to be reelected. He can’t vote like Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama. I believe the GOP’s love affair with Senator Brown is going to be very short.
A new poll was released today by CNN that said Nearly six in 10 Americans say they are dissatisfied with the way democracy is working in the United States. What are these people being fed? What’s new that I’m missing?
The poll also states "Americans don’t think very highly of government officials. Eight in 10 think that government officials are out of touch, influenced by special interests, and mainly concerned with getting re-elected." Well D’uh!!! That’s not new. So how is democracy not working? You go and you vote. If you don’t like what they do after they win the job, vote again and throw them out. Just because some elected officials aren’t doing what you want them to do or they just outright suck, that doesn’t mean democracy isn’t working. Maybe the government isn’t running on four full tires, but democracy in this country is fine as long as the Supreme Court isn’t picking presidents.
I think there’s been so much negativity aired lately, and pointless screaming that people are sick, tired, fed up and downright angry at the government but they don’t know why. Maybe Fox News and all the conservative radio hosts should tell them what they’re mad about.
Here’s the rough.
