Just more hypocrisy in politics and both sides are guilty of it. One side rails against the other over some perceived injustice, and from behind the
scene the same group doing all the criticizing partakes in the same conduct. I have said in the past there are no such things as Republicans or
Democrats and both sides meet in the middle. They love to manipulate people into believing that their particular candidate will walk the party line
and vote in accordance with their constituents on every issue to cross their desk. Sadly, that is often not the case when the rubber meets the road
with the special interests swarming like vultures, deals with other politicians, and seedy practices.
If one has any kind of spine, he or she is labeled a pariah by the MSM and opponents. Furthermore, they are lambasted and viciously attacked for
feeling strongly about their views and voting accordingly.Washington has become a den of vipers and a place filled with seedy individuals. The thing
that should be most important to a politician is their integrity, and it seems in many cases among modern politicians integrity is often chained up
and forgotten. Both parties are guilty of two timing and hustling the American people.
Now, in the case of President Barack Obama getting the cold shoulder from party member candidates in this mid-term election? It seems more than
obvious that is becoming the case as we get closer to the election. Democrat candidate are scurrying from any association with the President and are
running for the welcoming arms of former President Bill Clinton.
On Midterm Stump, Clinton Is Defender in Chief
Mr. Clinton is now the most sought-after Democrat, logging 29 stops so far this year with more to come in the fall. He has been embraced by Democrats
wherever he goes, even as several candidates have run the other way when Mr. Obama has arrived in their state.
These same incumbents who now fear for their political lives and have backed the President in Healthcare Reform, Trillion Dollar Stimulus, and
supporting the largest tax increase in US history coming next year are scurrying for anyone who can stem the bleeding ,and it seems Bill Clinton is
the guy. The prodigal son returns If anything this display of betrayal by the Democrats shows how fickle politics really is. Rather than embracing the
man whom they supported with votes for his agenda as radical and unpopular as it may seem, they would rather distance themselves and treat the
President as some kind of liability in hopes of holding on to their jobs for another term. Integrity is something the modern politician has no concept
of, or they would stand by their record regardless if they get reelected or not. It seems President Obama may find himself in a situation similar to
what Clinton dealt with in 1994 when the Republicans won the majority.
