You're so right!

November 24, 2013

Many letters state that the recent mess in DC caused by the shutdown is all President Obama's fault and I have to agree with them....

Chuck, I got myself a much trouble for "redundancy" in English. You might want to explore that "narrative."

I understand that Government leaders can't do it because there is just way to much money & power involved.....

But do we the reader's and Postees [ is that a word? ] of the comments section of the Sun Gazette have to act like many of our political leaders..! ??

Are we capable of coming together and agreeing to stop the Personal Attacks??

If not... then we just might be worse than the politicians we criticize every day.

Being that we don't have to much money & power involved to create a need for personnel attacks.

The only good thing about a letter from Chuck is that we don't have to read his comments on them. This letter was obviously written while drinking a big jug of Kool-Aid, spiked with vodka.

The Senate shut down the federal government, not the House GOP.

"This system is falling apart and it is not due to any single person.

Think of most elected as termites. Your porch does not fall off during the first year of infestation. The build-up is slow. Sorry everyone but both parties are responsible."

Why didn't we see a comment like this when just a letter or two back, Sham made a comment trying to make it look like the current governor in Harrisburg is responsible for the current condition of the roads and bridges in PA?

The extreme argument, another form of lying, from CMReeder to get people to change their opinion and defend his president that he worships and adores.

Well when the president does have the sole veto power to reject a bill, he does get ALL the credit. When a bill is passed, the credit is given to those that voted for it. When it is implemented, the executive branch is responsible and there is one leader of it.

When the ObamaCare design has flaws, the entire democrat representation takes the blame. When the President lies about what ObamaCare is going to do, he shares the credit with his staff and those that should have corrected him or he takes all the blame if he knowingly did it. When the roll out and implementation of ObamaCare are disastrous then the buck stops with him.

Capitol Hill is no different than any other job site. When you have senior leadership that has been on the job for years and are narrow minded, refuse to listen to new ideas and bully subordinates to get their way, it will always result in subordinates conforming to the ways of their seniors. I know I've worked for seniors with that attitude and until you remove the bad apples that are rotting the entire bushel, nothing will change and that applies to both sides of the aisle. These crusty old career politicians that are set in their old antiquated ways and are in the pockets of lobbyist, need to go.

When good men go to DC and make a stand for what they were elected to do, just look at what has happened to them even folks from the same party are ridiculing them for standing up and saying what is on the minds of a lot of Americans.

Now as a result the filibuster has been done away with by the ruling party. Why? Because some Elephant stood up to the Donkey.

You are right that we need statesmen, not politicians.

But the current system gobbles up good people and twists them into the status quo.

That is why the Tea Party is des*****....because they oppose the status quo in DC and are a threat to the cronyism of both Republicans and Democrats.

Spike, it doesn't help that the President has no negotiating skills nor any desire to call for compromise to come up with real solutions. Reagan did it with O'neil and Clinton did it with Gingrich. Obama? Nope.

I think the problem is that no one goes to Washington to be a statesman anymore. Those elected are extremely partisan before they arrive in D.C., have no interest in finding solutions and go to be obstructionists to the opposing party (on either side). We have to demand better candidates and vote for them, demand smear research on candidates and families stop and not necessarily vote for those with the biggest bankroll. We must accept primaries do matter. This system is falling apart and it is not due to any single person. Think of most elected as termites. Your porch does not fall off during the first year of infestation. The build-up is slow. Sorry everyone but both parties are responsible.

Chuck, you're "following" are going to think you fell down and bumped your head. Oh and btw, I never heard anyone on here state it was all the president's fault. He has a lot of help from Congressional Democrats who truthfully are the ones pulling his puppet strings. If he was a good leader he could have acted like the Statesman Clinton was and guided both democrats and republicans to reach partisan agreements. Clinton had a republican held majority in Congress and our economy was never better.

Chuck, comedy is hard and (in your case) should be left to the professionals.
