What about homelessness - poverty - hunger - schools falling down around the children - things we can fix today, and tomorrow, going forward into the future?
Why does he continually use issues that may or may not be (can you predict the future?) to obfuscate about truly troubling situations such as Iraq, Afghanistan, hooded prisoners naked and tortured?
These are all things that he has the power to fix, today, if not tomorrow. How about stepping in to stop the congressional irresponsible behavior wasting taxpayer dollars arguing about filibusters when they should be working on fixing the growing deficits and other more troubling issues like the gradual erosion of personal liberty across the board?
Why doesn't he simply replace some of the more contentious judicial nomanies in favor of others that wouldn't require such steadfast resistance? Afterall, these folks were blocked last term. Isn't that a hint that perhaps he needs to choose other folks. That would get congress moving forward as opposed to being in stalled mode.
What about rising gasoline prices and the dependence on foreign oil sources? Why doesn't he pitch a new initiave to mitigate our dependence on fosil fuels in favor of clean and green energy? This could be something to get behind now, today, and it would create new jobs in a whole new class of occupations. Our Nation could lead again - instead we are getting beat to the punch by Japan and other countries more invested in invention of solar technologies. Like JFK starting the Peace Corps on the steps of the University of Michigan Union building, Bush could make his mark in a positive way by starting the race to clean and grean energy solitions - rather than a race to Mars or the Moon - this would have real, dramatic and lasting postive affects on a whole range of environmental issues.
This list gets longer as I type and think. No doubt bloggers out there have other problems that need addressing and have concrete suggestions on how we could begin fixing them. Place them in the comments below and we shall see what creative solutions appear.
I say yuck. Time to trade up - let's vote the bastards out...all of them. This could be a find and replace - that is - regardless of party affiliation, let's dump the whole lot of spoiled politicians (the rich-political-"elite") and swap them out for people who actually get some work done as demonstrated by their work and results records.
Rather than real problem solving, and tangible results to real troubling situations, we get more of the same with W, Rove and Co and their ilk:
