Romancing The Senate: When Did The Business Of Government Become About Love?

On CNN today, the “talk back question” was “can Barack Obama romance the republicans?”.
It seems that voters intentionally put our country into a state of gridlock the past couple elections: with a democratic president and a senate dominated by Republicans. And it also seems that our two-party system has created a sandbox with a stone wall in the middle.

Some might say the past four years were plagued by intentional gridlock imposed by republicans to prevent our incumbent president’s reelection by not allowing him to make any progress.
Some say that’s a load of hooey and that the President simply refused to compromise.

So now the metaphor for a re-start is one of romance: how can the president win over the opposition party in the senate. Can they start “dating” again?

At what point do we start taking the emotion and ego out of government and remember that it’s about business, not love? Love fascinates and intoxicates and causes irrational conflict. Business is, in theory, objective and goal oriented.

Lets get goal oriented and get down to the business of getting our country’s economy straight.
This will be my last overtly political blog as I jettison my election-enduced political hangover.

Perhaps tomorrow I’ll blog about legalizing doobies.

  1. Freedom, by the way

    I do not see anything but gridlock ahead. It’s easy to say Republicans and Democrats should work together but they won’t. I do expect them to work together to pass some form of the tax cuts before the new year. People are going to be upset enough about their smaller paychecks due to Obamacare. If the tax cuts are not re-upped you are going to hear screams from Americans of all political persuasions. Thanks for the link.

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.
