    Being of no more use to anybody, he was destined to wander the land as a jug-eared pariah, abandoned by even the parasites to whom he redistributed wealth. Educated citizens had abandoned him long ago due to his awkward attempts to gut the 2nd Amendment.

    Somewhere in Georgia, Jimmy Carter smiled and burned his ’Worst President in History" t-shirt.

    Gore shunned Clinton look how that turned out.
    I often hear liberals scream at conservatives if we do not learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it.
    Which I agree with.
    I’m just saying practice what you preach.

    It is truly sad only about 20 percent of the voters will vote in November and most of them are rather polarized. Are there any intelligent voters out there who really object to the dysfunctional, do nothing congress?

    The political parties represent themselves best. They may appear to be adversaries, but in reality, they take care of each other quite well with wages, benefits, and immunity from some laws. Personally, I have no use for them and am registered as an unaffiliated voter, but they have the power to prevent any independent voices from being heard. I cannot, in my state, vote in primaries, so, have to select from the unsuitable candidates that the parties have selected.

    Intelligent, independent, non-laywers and non-businessmen are shunned by the parties as unacceptable to govern. In any surviving industry, regardless of size, the lean and agile survive. This is not the case in government. The mission statement of the House of Representatives is an exercise in futility and obfuscation. We have moved in an era of high technology, global, interactions, yet we elect people who favor jingoist approaches.

    In business ads, the multilingual, technologists with current math and science skills are most sought-after. Why do we allow the inept, who need interns and lobbyists to guide them in the wrong direction time and time again. Their single digit approval rating should be a clear indication of having failed the American people, but they do not seem to care and instead pursue their wealthy sponsors and create artificial issues to campaign on as they are unwilling or unable to solve the real problems.

    That would be the “dysfunctional, do nothing” SENATE. The house has passed numerous bills that all die in Harry Reid’s trash can. Once the Senate changes hands, those bills, passed by both houses, will begin to appear on Obama’s desk. At that point, he can no longer hide behind Harry Reid and will have to sign or veto those bills.

    Not the same. Clinton had a fairly good economy when “shunned” by Gore. Obama’s however can’t claim the same. There are articles out there claiming that people who are not counted as “unemployed” aren’t working and just exhausted their benefits, hence the decreasing workforce participation rate.

    Gore still won but that was taken from him by Republican operatives.

    @tom

    The House kept passing all kinds of nonsense over an over. To over turn PPACA and to give more tax breaks to the already wealthy. Garbage legislation.

    Don’t worry, this state of affairs will only last until the election, as the President himself acknowledges:

    How do you know, you have stated several times your not even an American. Have you read any of the house bills.

    @jack75287

    I have never stated “I am not an American.” That is just your lens putting that way.

    Already listed several times I won’t do it again.

    Never saw that one. I have seen those comical “Miss me yet?” Tshirts, but they’re only carried in a few gift shops in Kennebunk, ME.
