Comments on: Clinton, Gingrich, Lott share political war stories and laughs http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/18/clinton-gingrich-lott-share-political-war-stories-and-laughs/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Deb Ferrell-Lynn http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/18/clinton-gingrich-lott-share-political-war-stories-and-laughs/comment-page-1/#comment-399172 Sat, 19 Sep 2009 19:11:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=20347#comment-399172 I agree with Mufaso. Many, but not all, politicians tear each other to bits in public and get Americans all riled up for THEIR own political and personal benefit. Their passion is power. Ours is liberty and economic opportunity for ourselves, our communities, and our children. The citizenry needs to be smarter and wiser about the reality of politics and understand when it is being had and when the politician / lawmaker is sincerely principled. Until then, the majority of us will be played like cheap fiddles. Getting rid of the two major political parties won’t solve anything in the long run because parties will always form in a free society. Imposing term limits and getting rid of obvious problems (like the Charlie Rangels of the world) would be a good start.

They remind me of a bunch of wrestlers on television who act like they’re going to kill each other on the screen but go out for a beer afterwards. Democrats and Republicans are not enemies; they wash each other’s hands. Both benefit when the other is in power. The Republicans are going to benefit from the Obama administration no matter what. It is you and I who are going to suffer, just like we suffered under Bush’s administration. As long as Democrats and Republicans run the country there is no hope for America.
