ANALYSIS/OPINION:

To see House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and my own Sen. Barbara Mikulski gleefully blaming President Bush for the problems our nation now faces exemplifies what is wrong with our so-called leaders in Congress (“Pelosi’s failure,” Editorial, Monday).

Our county is at war, the rising cost of energy is affecting every American’s daily life, our financial system is in dire straits partly as a result of government neglect and our economy is in a recession. Real leaders would realize that only by both parties working together can we attempt to put our country back on the right track.

Now is not the time to be playing the blame game. For the first time in 45 years of voting, I have no inclination to vote for any incumbent, Democrat or Republican.

Maybe if Congress would attempt to work together to solve problems instead of making every move political, its approval rating would not be lower than that of the president. It may be time to throw the whole bunch out and start with individuals that will put our country first instead of themselves and their political agendas.
