Let’s take a long, hard look at who’s leading us
With all the things that are not going on in our government these days, I would like to see a poll of how many people watch the State of the Union Address last night. With a president that has a approval rating of 49 percent and a Congress that has a 13 percent rating, I think that it is very hard for people these days to be very interested in much of anything that is going on in our nation’s capital.
What really struck me was how they were all looking like rich and happy people that they must be. All the women had beautiful outfits and perfect hair. All the men had expensive suits and fresh haircuts. Everyone was smiling, greeting each other and patting each other on the back. I got the impression that these were a group of people that worked together and really enjoyed each other’s company. I think that anyone who is following what is not happening in Washington knows that this is not the case.
I want to confess as I continue, I voted twice for this president and I support most of his agenda. For him to be blamed that nothing is being done to get our country back on its feet is ridiculous. This Congress and Senate cannot get together and agree on one thing that could be sent to the president for his approval or disapproval. It is said that the second term of a president is a lame duck session. I would have to say that his five years in office have been a lame duck session. I think that his only really big accomplishment, the Affordable Care Act, will be the only one thing that he will be remembered for. Oh, did I mention that Congress has voted 40 times to try and repeal that. The president said if the Congress couldn’t get anything done, he would resort to signing what is called an executive order to move anything forward. Well Congress doesn’t like that. Now he doesn’t want to work with them. What are these guys and gals, a bunch of fourth-graders!
