New Congress, same do-nothing stances

Stephen R. Wyman, Copper Mountain

Morgan Riddick’s commentary on Feb. 13 in SDN bluntly blasting the now Democratically controlled Congresses’ toothless so called “Bipartisan Resolution” demonstrates to those voters, who in last November’s elections put the Democrats in control of Congress, that their actions did not result in some blossoming of a change for the better. Rather, we see a metastasizing of Congress (i.e. a transference of a disease, etc. from one party to another-the Democrats). A quote from Albert Einstein may best describe what is now occurring in the Democratically controlled Congress “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.” To me, leadership is the capacity to inspire, to develop a constructive plan of action and implement said plan to address problems/issues confronting our nation, to which the majority of people can relate and support. This leadership is clearly not occurring with the current majority incumbants in Congress as the voters hoped! Has anyone heard the Democrats put forth any constructive strategy and a plan to implement said strategy on any issue before Congress – I think not! The political jockeying, back stabbing, mud-slinging that has been allowed to begin a full two years before the 2008 presidential elections by the Clintons and others throwing their hats (or skirts) into the residential race, insults the electorates’ intelligence in the most demeaning way. It means these would-be candidates will conduct very little substantive work on America’s behalf over the next two years. Rather, their focus will be totally self-serving, self-promoting and attempting at every opportunity to sway the American voter to supporting their “claimed public agenda,” which undoubtably is not their “real political agenda”. Only a change of the myriad of “Dynasty” incumbant politicians in government will bring new ideas and constructive, viable plans, and the type of people who will feel the pressure of the electorate to implement acceptable and valid solutions, rather than the political dancing currently taking place.
