Congress Bears No Personal Responsibility

Our government let us down. We live in a world where our leaders bear no responsibility for what occurs. The name of the game is "blame". Regardless of who is in power, there is always someone else at fault. This is how our pathetic excuses for leaders are. They delude themselves by their own false virtues.

This was exemplified by our present Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. She was asked if Congress bore any responsibility for the recent financial crisis that is plaguing the United States (and the world). Her response was that they had no part in it. Are you freaking kidding me. The damn Speaker of the House is claiming that the United States Congress is innocent of all that occurred to create the largest financial crisis since the Great Depression. This is asinine. Here is a woman who needs a good dose of reality.

Another is that pathetic excuse for a leader Barney Frank. He is a very powerful man on Capitol Hill. His job was the oversight of Frannie Mae and Freddie Mac. For those who are unaware, the taxpayers had to bail these organizations out to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars. Of course, Congress bears no responsibility for this collapse either. To believe that, we need to overlook the fact that Frank had a long-term affair with the head of one of these institutions. Is it any wonder why he resisted any attempts to reform these colossal failures?

America ought to be raiding Washington with rakes and pitchforks. It is time to wake up. If our leaders cannot show personal responsibility for their actions they need to be tossed out of office. The above examples happen to be Congressional Democrats. The same behavior is witnessed by members of the Bush Administration and Wall Street executives. These people are pathetic excuses for representatives. We need to do whatever we can to hold them to the fire.
