Talk about America's decline is usually wrong.

Even by Washington standards, the Senate Republicans have hit a new low for hypocrisy.

Everyone knows that the plum ambassadorships go to the largest campaign contributors. There is even a building named after child torturer Mel Sembler.

As President Obama likes to remind us, don't get angry VOTE!

We need a Congress that's willing to do its job. It's up to us to make that happen.

The President is correct. If you are not satisfied with any aspect of what our Senators, or Representatives are doing then you need to vote them out of office. When was the last time you faced the day without a new government crisis? We shouldn't have to live like this going from one crisis to the next every day.
