The 4th of July.
It is all about money, isn't it? Obama raking in $32 million - the others following suit, taking in millions. (Obviously $32 million isn't worth much anymore.) Everyone campaigning a year or two before the conventions. How do they get their work done at their regular jobs? What do constituents think when their elected officials are out campaigning and not doing the jobs they were elected to do? And for that matter - why is Nancy Peolosi running all over the world? She's not the President.
It is Independence Day in the United States. The country is at war, our soldiers are dying, then there is that abortion thing, and the politicians are on self-promotional tours.
I just can't get excited about the 4th. I don't feel very patriotic. Sometimes I think the 4th should be declared a National day of prayer and penance.
