Watching the 9/11 memorials makes me wonder: What happened to post-attack civility on the part of our elected officials, specifically Congress? How are they honoring the victims’ ultimate sacrifice? I’d like to know what Eric Cantor thinks about when he wakes up every morning. Do he and his ilk truly believe that they are serving the country by tearing it apart? I mean, really? Whom does that serve other than themselves?
I want to throw a brick at the TV whenever I see Cantor’s self-satisfied smirk on the news. At least Boehner seems to want to compromise but gets hamstrung every time by the extremists. Where’s the value in refusing to return a phone call from the President of the United States? Pouting only demonstrates that you need a diaper change and some lessons in learning to play nice with others. Remember, folks, that you reap what you sow. If you win the White House in 2012, expect the same behavior back.
No wonder the United States is rapidly losing its prestige in the world! Our leaders are nothing more than a bunch of spoiled brats good for nothing but throwing tantrums whenever they don’t get their way. And yet, no one votes the idiots out of office. Are we really this divided outside the Beltway?
