Did you hear on "This Week" on ABC today where Colin Powell said that the politicians in Washington really needs to compromise? He said the Congress failed because the Tea Party refuses to compromise. His words were, "But the Tea Party point of view of no compromise whatsoever is not a point of view that will eventually produce a presidential candidate who will win." I have to wonder about the amnesia that this Four Star General and former Secretary of State is suffering from.
For the first two years of President Obama's reign, there was absolutely no compromise in Washington. The Democratic leaders in both houses of Congress vowed that they would push through their agenda "one way or another". They would not consult the Republicans on anything. Often, they would sneak behind closed doors and shut the Republicans totally out! Compromise!?! Are you kidding me?
And where are you and your neighbors today? Have they soooo improved your life and mine that we bow down to them and praise them for aaaaall they have done? Wake up America! Stop listening to the mainstream media!
Then the topic of illegal immigration was also discussed. The mainstream media wants all of these criminals to be given amnesty. Well, why would we do that for foreigners and not grant amnesty for our home grown criminals? They talk about "splitting up families" of these criminals. Well, our American families are split up when some Thug gets prison time for the crimes they have committed. Let's open our prisons open and re-unite our American families!
What am I missing? Leave a comment and let's get this conversation going. Obviously, I need help to understand!
