Republican Rep. Steven LaTourette of Ohio, a nine-term lawmaker and a close confidant of House Speaker John Boehner, said Tuesday he was frustrated with the political stalemate in Washington and won't seek re-election.

At last! A politician who tells it like it is--but he is retiring. Will congress get the message LaTourette sent to them? I doubt it. We, the voters, have got to get these damned political parties out of office. They won't work for the good of the voter, they won't work out compromises. We are going to have to vote independents into office to show these politicians that we have had it with them. Maybe that will shake them up and get them to giving us candidates that will work for us--instead of the mis-fits like our presidential candidates. I am about ready to write in Ron Paul just to show my disgust with democrats and republicans that don't know how to do the job.
