You don't read very well, do you?
Your problem exactly is that you believe everything you do read unless someone actually points out the truth to you.
You worry about abortion, gay marriage, stem cells and a bunch of fringe issues and get distracted by how many days Obama took off from work.
In the meantime your beloved Republicans and hated Democrats are both laughing at you while they bankrupt your country, send all your tax money overseas, send your job to Asia, and fuck you for life. You are the typical American and too blind in your allegiance to either party to see what is really happening.
Both parties agreed on the TARP, and ensuing bailout. Both of them just fucked you, your kids, your grandkids and their kids out of any sort of financial solvency or stability to line the pockets of their banker buddies. Both partied continue to perpetuate a war against countries that don't want our help, don't want democracy, hell that don't even know what democracy is, while they institute socialism and communism right here at home. Both parties were in full agreement on socializing General Motors and the banking system. Both parties agree we need socialized medicine and are working out a few minor details.... all while you are convinced the next big issue is gay marriage.
Go listen to the song American Idiot over and over.... it's your anthem.
The Republicans aren't going to save anyone. They are the same as the Democrats anymore. The only difference between either party is fringe issues that don't matter at all.
The average citizen votes on fringe issues, just like you. The average citizen has no clue how to stop the united Republicrats from ruining and entire country. As long as you remain focused on unimportant bullshit issues like gay marriage we will never fix any of this mess.
I don't care if gays want to get married. I do care if my country gives $2 trillion to banks and gives out foreign aid like we have a cash surplus while unemployment is 20% at home. And both parties are equally responsible for that debacle.
Unless you forgot, W was so damn stupid he couldn't even manage a baseball team, but because he is a "republican" you think he was fit to run an entire country. Nice.....
I don't know about the idiocy that pervails in this country anymore, but I don't want a guy that can't succeed in a game managing a few hundred people making decisions that affect billions of people.
