I normally stay away from all political talk. I have my own opinions about things but do not strictly follow one party or another. I vote for who I think will do best, not for a specific party. Some may call this approach wishy-washy, but it works for me so that is what I do.
Last night's presidential address, and the response to it, has hit me hard. I felt like Obama went through the pros and cons of things, and pushed for his plan with reasons. I felt like the response from Boehner was prepared before he heard Obama's talk, and his response failed to address arguments that Obama raised. I felt like Boehner was just bashing the President, versus addressing and arguing the issues. I just wish they each had stuck to the facts and argued their side without getting ugly.
Did anyone else feel this way?
Regardless of who you support, our government needs to get their act together. At the end of the day, I think an agreement needs to be made, and at this late in the game, it will only happen through compromise.
