I personally dont understand why this group of highly competent public servants cant get along.


I dont give a rats rear end about whether or not they are Republicans or Democrats.


And frankly Im fed up with the finger-pointing, the rudeness, the mean-spirited politically partisan attitudes and all the other side shows that serve only to detract from what needs to be done.


I think a Will Rogers type of personality would likely say something like Fellows its time for us to roll up our sleeves and figure out what were going to do. Its time to go to work.


Our national government in Washington needs now more than ever real statesmen.


Its fine to disagree.


But disagreeing doesnt mean being disrespectful.


Statesmen respectfully listen to their opponents. They act for the common good. They put whats best for the country first on their agenda. Statesmen genuinely care about those they represent. And statesmen are not I people but rather We people.

After all, thats what we elected them to do.
