We the People are well aware of what the President lamented to Pentagon workers yesterday. He said “they deserve” better. Well, we all do.
In fact, this is a time in history when many Americans wish we could pull the plug on this lot and do over. Well, the time for that is just around the corner while these ideologues continue to damage the economy and our national security.
More than most anything, it is imperative that voters awaken to looking at the resumes and understanding the people who are running for elected offices.
Frankly, there are still a bunch of bums in the pipeline. While we have bums on seats in Congress, because we have done nothing to improve our own thoughts about candidates, the system continues to deliver the same poor quality.
Needed is to address what should be on the resumes of candidates in terms of qualifications, experience, and character. Consider the quality of our Founding Fathers versus what we have today.
Most of the incumbents could not produce the Constitution. Most of them cannot produce laws and regulations that attend to our essential needs as citizens as that is what we expect.
Their excuse for lack of ability is to say we need smaller government. That is code talk for “we don’t know what the hell we are doing.”
We the People know they don't.
“Obama tells Pentagon workers they 'deserve better' than DC's dysfunction
By Justin Sink - 10/01/13 12:21 AM ET
President Obama in a video message to Defense workers said they "deserved better" than the dysfunction they were seeing in Washington.
Just as a government shutdown began, Obama in the message declared that lawmakers had not "fulfilled its responsibility" by failing to fund the government.
"It's failed to pass a budget," the president said. "As a result, the government must now shut down until Congress funds it again." Obama said in a message to both military and civilian Pentagon workers.
Looking to reassure members of the military, Obama promised that those fighting overseas would "have what you need to succeed in your missions." He also noted that Monday night, he signed a bill that would continue paying the salaries of military personnel despite the shutdown.”
