Politics Shmoliticks

Updated on November 23, 2014

I am exasperated about our current political arena. Do not our politicians know that to watch them act like little children is not at all impressive. I do not like to talk often of politics but I am so tired of listening to everyone blame our now president. I am also tired of watching t.v. and seeing these "to be" politician act like juveniles. I do not write this to try and pull anyone into my view, I just want to vent.

Why is it that this president who has done more than any president in many years is getting so bogged down by the "blame game". I ask my friends and peers this question?

How can you complain of the president of doing nothing and making things worse when:

You received an appliance at a great cost reduction because of his energy plan
You kept your home out of foreclosure due to the Home affordableprogram by the president
You bought a car that you would not have otherwise been able to afford because of the rebate program from our president.......

I am challenging all of us to just stop running on automatic and think about the words we are using. Please see that in all the years of whining about politics, it has never helped. Lets make a paradigm shift and teach our children that we can act like adults. Let us be critical thinkers when it comes to the politicians that are via social media degrading and humiliating each other, and make wise decisions with our head and hearts.

It is written " watch what you speak"

Emphatically tired of all the backlash

      Gee. My mind isn't what it used to be and maybe it never was. I lived through 3 Bush administrations, 5 if you count the Reagan years. There's not doubt- GW Bush is the most exposed corrupt person we have had in the White House. He's a legend. But there will not be a "savior" from the Democrats. I guess I may as well repeat this here: America is capitalism. Republicans are the capitalists. Republicans are pro-big-business and dismisses the Golden Rule. Democrats are very cute and say wonderful things and the grass root Democrat is nice and charming. There are no Democrats after election though. They all become Republicans and play a game called "Let's Get Re-Elected". If you can buy one political party, why would you stop at buying just one? Thank you Healing Touch

      I do appreciate your comment. I do see the manipulation and I am very sensitive to this. I Can't believe people believe everything they hear.

      I do not live in the US but I have watched Fox News at times as an intersted observer. I have been amazed at the deliberate one sided presentation of the facts and their deliberate (often successful) way of trying to brainwash people. I would have thought that such obvious manipulation would offend people in the extreme, but from what I read here and elsewhere, people want to be manipulated.

      To an outsider like me, it apperas to be crystal clear that the previous administration left a horrible financial situation behind it, after eight years of being in charge. Luckily they got caught out just before they left office, so that people could see the damage they had done prior to leaving. Yet I am surprised that American voters want to bring those same failed politics and mentalities back. Maybe it's becasue the owner of Fox news wants it so?

      When we observe our leaders standing in the corner stomping their feet and raising their voices it should make clear for all, that they are each simply children with really big jobs. The power they obtain is only what we give them, and they should not be left alone with such dangrous toys to do harm to themselves as well as those they are in charge of.

      Power currupts good people, power distroys those who are already soaked in its blood. But more often than not, we only see the blood stained shirts after the pain has been delivered.

      Know your enemy even if that requires you watching tv network news. ;`}

      Nice job here HT!

      ~Always choose love~

      I really appreciate your feedback. I work with homeless people so I was so excited about Obama being voted in. Perhaps my lense is too black and white. Trust me, my soul is not powered by money, and I do believe in the human spirit. I will say, you have me thinking about this very seriously.

      Healing I thought Obama blamed Bush? Healing if your truly tired of all this garbage! Then please begin to watch Fox and listen to day time radio, Educate yourself to what is going on! yes watch the liberals too but not untill you watch Fox first! How can you be an American and not know what is truly going on! This is probably one of the most significant times in the history of your life! November could mean the difference between ruin and hope for the right people with back bone to take back our ruined country!

      I fear we have gone too far this time. The "People spoke" and gave Obama carte' blanche. Millions of the uninformed minorities cast a vote for color not one of common sense.

      They trusted their interests were truly in this Charlatan's heart and mind. He will be making over 100 million dollars over the next ten years with his Exxon holdings alone and stands to make a fortune on our Gulf disaster. He surely has special interests at heart...his own.

      Those who voted this man into office were ambushed. An untried civil servant with a rather ambiguous background in politics, as well as heritage, and seemingly- without a lick of sense, took center stage worldwide... and has failed. He's a mockery among nations... Not only will the American public be made to suffer, but this has world wide implications the likes we've never before in the history of this republic ever seen or experienced.

      I shudder when i see this man do his song and dance in front of the cameras. When you know his real intent is to dismantle our constitution and create a socialist system, only then will you capture the vision of the American dream as a dying possibility for the masses. A horrible death is ahead for us if we don't do the bidding of a lunatic.

      Just my opinion Healing, although i can see how the superficial may appease so many, after all money drives most peoples souls not the spirit that lives in all. B@peace... a generations lifetime is short, ours will be over and the next five will be paying for this mindless catastrophe. people just don't think outside the box...

      Vladimir Uhri,

      I do so believe that power destroys. I wish we could learn this lesson, but to no avail. Politicians do end up thinking they are the end all.

      Go Democracy

      Breakfast Pop,

      I was hoping you would comment since your definately well versed in politics unlike myself. I do appreciate your feedback. I just can't be so black and white on Obama. I believe he has listened to some not all of our wishes. It is fun to see the different views we all have of the same policies.

      Lets go meet up for some bloody Mary's. That will help.

      Politics is addictive as dopes. The power taste good. Our politicians forgot they are servant of we-people and not their masters. They have to wake up.

      Mr. Obama disappointed many and no wander his rating is very low. You will be normally criminal if you spent money does not belong to you.

      Only progressive socialists Like Mr president's job.

      Here's the problem. This President is into big spending, big deficits, and big government. His accomplishments are not popular with the American people because they really are not in our best interests. He is ignoring our wishes and our voices and that is not the democratic way.
