Barack Obama has been OUR President for almost four years. We ALL know what he has accomplished and what he could not accomplish. In this Presidential election the focus of this President's competition has been to ignore or denigrate his accomplishments and THEN use the obstruction of the GOP as a reason for not voting to re-elect OUR President.
And so we each have a choice ... to believe what we are told or what we have experienced over the past four years.
Those who are not happy can seek to place blame and not take personal responsibility.
Those unemployed who had obsolete skills or were embedded in jobs that they were overpaid to perform or that were held due to the good will of employers are either realistic or bitter or both.
Who is to blame for what OUR nation has become?
Each of us? Or those who earn a living keeping us informed as a society?
OUR Government does not operate for profit.
However individuals in OUR Government often are motivated by personal gains.
Lobbyists take advantage of human nature on behalf of institutions mostly corporations by organizations as well ... such as religious and trade unions.
It takes something big and powerful to withstand the forces of personal financial gain.
OUR Government is that "something"
Many would have us believe that destroying OUR Government is good for us.
It's as if we are being told that cutting off a paralyzed or injured hand or arm is the solution to our problems; or even worse cutting off our head.
OUR Government is us and shrinking OUR Government is societal suicide.
Hurricane Sandy was a catharsis for many who oppose OUR Government or THEIR Government ...
More Americans realize as a result of Governor Christie and President Obama doing their jobs, that we are united by events we cannot not control or avoid as individuals.
There will be a slight up-tick in support for OUR President based on two individuals simply acting human.
I call it Bomentum.
Very enlightening. Some will say that is made everything Christie clear for them.
