R. Jensen: Fed up with politicians

If we are to believe Thomas Shields, Mary Jane Newell and a host of other dyed-in-the-wool Republicans, one would think the Republican Party could cure everything from the world's economic ills to Aunt Hester's bunions.

But they can't, and neither can the Democrats.

Both factions are spending an inordinate amount of time trying to make each other look bad. Any time remaining is spent on efforts to get re-elected.

I, for one (and I'm not alone), am fed up with those politicians. When are our elected representatives going to bury their egos and mean-spirited ways and join together to govern for the best interests of the country and its citizens?

Perhaps when hell freezes over and the devil comes skating out.

Richard Jensen, Minot

Excuse me????

Our President said in his own words that if he could not fix the economy in three years he should be a one term President; I just want him to be a man of his word. Nothing more...nothing less. Vote conservative in November and bring fiscal sanity back to our country. No more borrowing on our children's futures and stop demonizing the only hope of America; the free enterprise system!

Because fiscal sanity is

Because fiscal sanity is brought about by belonging to a political party.

Couldn't agree more....

I to am totally disgusted with politics. When Obama was elected, the republican party stated on the first day. " We will make this a one term president" and they have done their best to keep that promise. My question to republicans is this. What do you expect to accomplish for the citizens of this country? By selfishly blocking everything and anything that is attempted by democrats. Republicans keep saying "no" to everything, yet they have no alternate plan. "Note to Republicans" nothing is being done for the people.
I don't care much for democrats or republicans, mostly because of their child like behavior. Its time to get someone who wants to work for the people, not their own agenda..........
