Have you ever known of a family whose parents are super nice and polite? Then you find out they have some children who act unruly and cause all kinds of havoc? Sometimes no matter how great of a parent one may be, the kids will be a menace to society. It’s in their DNA and they have a brain and conscious of their own. You have some parents who are a complete mess and the kids grow up to be doctors. It goes both ways.
This is what I see in Washington D.C and politics. We now have a congress who are acting like those unruly kids, and the Whitehouse are the parents who try to do everything right. Everything the President says or does, the GOP, and tea-party do just the opposite to make things difficult. Its getting to be foreseen before it even happens ( it’s like known that the bad child will end up in prison ). The Whitehouse can only do so much. The GOP in Congress have it set in their head that they will do whatever they want, even if it ruins America.
Back before President Obama, congress was doing the right thing and life was okay. Congress acted like the future doctor, and the Whitehouse from 2001-2009 ( Bush-era ) acted like the messed up parents, who had no idea on how to be a parent.
Let’s send the GOP and tea-party to therapy ( vote them out in 2014 ) and adopt some good kids ( democrats), so we can be a family again. The ones who act right.
Okay are you all fed up with the hypocrisy in politics? First you hear people like Rick Santorum say President Obama is trying to destroy America. When President Obama tries to encourage people to go to college, Mr. Santorum has the balls to say the President is a snob ( that’s like one 400 pound person saying you are out of shape). Why would someone think a person is a snob when they want others to better themselves? Could it be that Mr. Santorum will have to work harder because he will run into book smart people trying to take whatever job he has? The 1% hates to compete, look at the laws they have passed to make it harder to live the American dream.
Then Mr. Santorum does not like contraception and any law that allows same-sex marriage, and he talks about having a smaller government. Yet he is all for laws like the patriot act and drug testing unemployed people. Those laws right there require more government. I guess people like Mr. Santorum like smaller government when others need government, and he wants larger government when he wants to pass moral laws. He would like less laws for Wall Street , yet he is willing to pass more moral laws to control Americans.
I am very surprised that even 10 people in America would vote for this person. To me he is as scary as the Taliban but he tries to act like and talk like he is Gods right hand man.
You can say that hypocrisy is on the other side of the fence as well. The other side wants more regulation for banks, but less for drugs. They say the are for protection of the environment, yet we are drilling more now in America then we every have in the past.
I guess my point is, if you look at politics today , they are all alike but with different words coming out of their mouth. I guess that’s why Santorum has the definition he has when you do a search of his name.
UPDATED 2/28/2012 ; I just heard Mitt Romney talk. He has said in the past it’s not the government’s job to creat jobs. That it is the economies job, and the market system. Today he said President Obama has done nothing to fix the economy, and that he would creat jobs in America. He can not have it both ways. Now which way is it Mr. Romney? He also said he will restore the Keystone pipeline. If I am correct, that oil will go in the pipeline from Canada onto boats right to China. America gets none of the oil, China has bout it already. He has the people who listen to him thinking the oil is for America. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!
