    It is the same as Congress. There has to be an attitude change in Washington and across the country. Nothing will ever get done. We have appalling ratings in Congress and that is because the Republicans blame the democrats and the Democrats blame the Republicans.

    We need leadership in this country that not only promises change but acts on it. The present administration has done the oppositie. He stood idly by while calling the Republicans "terrorists," and not urging the Super Committee that failure was not an option. He became enbroiled in states issues and even sued the states when they tried to enforce federal laws when the government again refused to do their job.

    The Attorney General was another example of partisanship on the part of the White HOuse and not taking responsibility for promises not kept by this administration by following the law. Transparency was a joke.

    We need change. Big change. At this point, any of the candidates running can be an improvement of what we have now. But it takes more than changing the leadership in the White House. We have to take the responsibility to urge our own representitives to debate openly and consider the country before their own party to make the difference.

    It all starts at the top. Any organization is only as good as it's leadership, and Americas leader ran out of talent after the election.

    The problem is the federal government simply has way to much to do. They are in control of to much, they have gotten to big, and they simply cannot be managed.

    This is one of the reasons the constitution created a framework with a weak federal government and strong state governments. A simple return to the constitution ending the socialism experiment would reduce the federal government to protecting the liberties of the people from the states and providing defense of the nation.

    Every problem we have today is caused by the dismissal of the constitution and the rule of law. Every single one.

    How many more times do you want to replace the peak while the foundation is filled with rot and decay?

    The obama ran on his ability to get it done, and like I said, he ran out of talent when it came time to do something about it.

    I agree that the whole lot of 'em are crooked, but leaders are supposed to lead and he hasn't led. He is the most divisive of the bunch and that isn't leadership.

    The birth of the 24 hour news cycle outrage-a-thon and Internet anonymity is the reason for it.
