the recent politics
One thing that I find incredibly annoying is that both main-stream candidates have claimed they forsaw the current problems we’re facing in the economy.
“My friend, I’d like you to see the letter that a group of senators and I wrote warning exactly of this crisis. Sen. Obama’s name was not on that letter.”
Obama has said very similar things as well.
Here’s the thing: you’re a group of senators. You are some of the most powerful people in the country, and able to evoke change in the system.
Yet instead of doing so, you just wrote a fucking letter. And I’m supposed to be impressed? I’m supposed to vote for you because the best thing you could do, when faced with certain economic disaster, was compose up a little letter?
I’m not sure what I’d prefer: blisfully ignorant or bluntly incapable. Oh what’s that? We only get the second option? Guess we’ll have that then.
