Just In Case You Still Thought Politics Was About "Issues":

Republicans reveal plan to scare, bribe people to support them.
"What can you sell when you do not have the White House, the House, or the Senate...?"

The answer: "Save the country from trending toward Socialism!”

-Republican Party PowerPoint presentation
Just to be clear, Democrats do this too (instead of socialism, its "fascism"). But they're usually not stupid enough to leave their PowerPoint presentations lying around.

Anyway, let the drill begin. First, disavow. Second, hint that its a fabrication. Third, accuse the other party of playing dirty politics. Fourth, carry out the plan anyway, but insist that you're not.

Followed by: an election win, corruption, stalemates, a disappointed base, and an election loss. Rinse and repeat.

One thing I like about Obama is that he seems to get that people are sick of all the BS, the scare tactics, the lies, the broken promises, the political maneuvering. He knows Americans want to get things done, make things happen. But unfortunately, all the people around him are acting like schoolyard bullies. And Obama, as hard as he tries, can't get them to act like adults. Which begs the question...

Is anyone on Capitol Hill qualified for their job?

Maybe instead of voting for people who vow to uphold our their beliefs NO MATTER WHAT, we should elect leaders who vow to weigh solid evidence and study issues closely to find workable solutions that benefit most Americans while not imposing hardship on the minority.

But we'd call that guy a flip-flopper, I guess.
