    BBC News - World News America - A congressman calls it quits

    I like this guy, and have no idea at this time which party he is in.
    Watch the vid at the link.

    From the link:
    For David Obey of Wisconsin, the decision not to seek reelection came earlier this year. After more than 40 years representing his district, Obey said it was simply time to go. But like so many others on Capitol Hill, his parting comes with a swipe at the current political climate in Washington.

    In this First Person account, the congressman looks back on a career which stretched for decades and the partisan warfare which has taken a turn for the worse.

    Obey never threw in with any party but his own. He just wants to live in a world where he can roll over the other party. That's his solution to "partisan warfare."

    Sean Duffy can do anything Obey can do. Same for Dan Benishek and the disgraced Bart Stupak.

    Viva citizen government.

    Any list of Democrats who claim to be non-partisan would have to start with those who opposed Obamacare.

    Obey needs to live under the laws he helped pass.

    Same with Russ Feingold.

    There is no upside to anyone being in government as long as those guys were.
