I try not to write about politics too much on this blog. I feel like there isn't usually much that can come out of a comment conversation about the topic - ideologues on both sides usually batter the opposition with their viewpoint. Jeez - I mean - it's hard enough to discuss economics with its corresponding ideologies on each side. But I was just made aware of a comment that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made last week, which disgusts me.
“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”
Now - was that taken out of context? Did McConnell mean something else? I don't know. I'm generally fiscally conservative at least, but when I hear crap like this coming out the mouths of our elected officials it makes me furious.
In the words of SF Giant's closer Brian Wilson: "I feel like I want to rage. RIGHT NOW."
and now I'm off to vote...
