I'm no Liberal, but that comment was pure nonsense. Republicans, began attacking Obama, the day he took office. While Obama was being inaugurated, key Republicans in Congress went to a local Steakhouse in DC and hatched their plot to block as much of Obama's agenda as possible and to deny him any credit for any recovery that might take place in the economy going forward. This was headline news at one point in recent history - this "Steakhouse Meeting" of Republicans. How short the memory, I guess. Look, I think both parties a total joke at this point and Party Politics in general need to be wiped from Federal Government entirely. Party Politics are an abomination to Federal Government in specific. Party Politics has become a cancer within the Republic, which desperately needs a completely different Management Strategy that deals with issues based purely on optimization and efficiency as the ultimate goal, not Political Party malfeasance and fiscal debauchery. Epoxy glue on BOTH houses in Federal Government. Neither one of them are worth a damn at this point and they both need to be vanquished, eradicated and removed from Central Government within the United States. We need a different kind of Government at the Federal level. One that functions on efficiencies of scale and not the multiplicative property of deficiencies gone wild. It is basic common sense that when something is not working, you change course heading and do something different. I believe it was Einstein, who said, the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. Our Federal Government has failed because it is a total failure. It needs to be redesigned, rededicated to the purpose of serving the American People and then redeployed with a degree of strategic and tactical optimization that would make all governments around the world blush with envy. They no longer blush with envy at our Federal Government. Now, they laugh with prodigious amounts of incredulity. We've become soft, easily manipulated, overly dependent and all too willing to abdicate our responsibility to educate ourselves on what Freedom and Self Governance means. Because of that we now have "rulers" ruling over our lives while the Right blindly complains about the Left and the Left blindly complains about the Right. Neither one ever figuring out that it is they who house the Resident Evil in our midst: A failed Federal Government. You restore the Republic first by taking control of it in the aggregate. Before you can accomplish that task, you must first take Personal Responsibility for your role in making the Country better for all The People. Anything less than that is nothing more than playing the game they want you to play - the one that guarantees your continue Economic Enslavement and their Total Dominance over your Life. Know it or not. Like it or not. These are the facts. This is what must be changed first. Failure to reclaim your lost Republic is, quite simple, failure. "We The People" are the answer, not Government in its present form.
