John Archibald wrote a piece in the Birmingham News recently on the need for bi-partisanship in the operation of government that hit the nail squarely on the head. The columnist wrote that we as a people have become too bitter and too partisan for our own good as a community and as a nation. He is absolutely on target. It’s high time we learn once again to work together to solve our problems. I can recall times in years past when members of Congress could sit down in Washington and work out tough issues when national security or the public interest was at stake. But those days are long gone, which is a sad commentary on our times.
There were a number of on-line responses to Mr. Archibald’s article that found common ground with his concerns. I believe that the American people are sick and tired of how Congress has refused to act in a bi-partisan manner on important issues. The goal of the GOP leadership from the outset was to make Obama a one-term president. That has never been the case – at least to the extreme we have seen over the past three years – with any other president. Hopefully, the members of Congress will listen to the folks back home and come back to our Nation’s Capitol next year with a much different mindset and will try to work together for the good of our country.
