Politics not Performance

We are in the days before next November's election. It is a time when politicians are looking to see how many seats they can fill in Congress. Many actions taken now are not for the purpose of accomplishing something good for the country but are to put the other party in an embarrassing situation so they will not get elected come fall. You will remember, I hope, how democrats blocked everything Bush tried to do in his last years in the White House so it would appear that he was doing nothing. The result was a democratic party in control in Congress. I know there are good people in Congress but they cannot do what they want to do if they are not reelected to their seat. We should keep this positioning in mind when the media tells us what is going on up there. We will only get the slant they want us to have.
