I am truly astonished by the ignorance Obama supporters have displayed in their quest to get someone - anyone - into the White House. Now, wait a minute. I can well understand your dislike or even hatred of George W. Bush, but he is not the root cause of all of our problems. Our Congress is. And a change there would be welcomed by all. You ain't gonna get it done with Obama. You gotta fire the whole damnable crooked Congress.
Perhaps I'm looking at all of this from a different perspective than you because my life experiences have been so different from yours. I'm 80-years old and have traveled the world where I've seen a great deal. I spent five years on active duty as a fighter pilot in the USAF and another seven years flying with the Air National Guard in California and Texas as well as a few years flying in the USAF Reserve. I spent three years on active duty in Germany flying Czech border patrol with "cold guns" in aircraft inferior to the MIG during the Korean "Police Action" when it was thought that Korea was a diversion for a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.

I am in Texas. My Senators and my Congressman are not crooks! In addition, they are reliable conservatives. If you don’t like yours vote them out. I can’t do it for you!
Politics is a tightwalk of dealmaking and the balancing donor’s interests with those of the people. It is very rare for a politician to stay on the right path - and especially rare for one to survive for a long time without leaning with the pressure.
Mine are crooks and we can never be rid of them. Maybe ACORN has something to do with that.
Calvin Coolidge said it best, IMO. He said the legislators are in Washington where there is lots of money just laying around and it doesn't seem to belong to anybody so why not spend it.
