Where Are Our Statesmen?



Our political ruling elites have slowly, over time, morphed into wanna-be celebrities. From Obama's obnoxious, effete caricature-like appearance on "The View", to his "slow-jamming" the news, he's degraded the Office of the President to a barely juvenile level. Not to be outdone, the Republicans are jumping on the bandwagon. The bloated (I'll bet he's sad over Twinkies liquidating) New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie recently appeared on SNL. So, while citizens of his state continue to suffer terrible consequences due to Hurricane Sandy, fatty yucks it up on SNL. Where are our statesmen?

Maybe Christie could take a break from doing his own one-man non-stop comedy show to hand out some survival kits.

I recall Christie stating he didn't have time to campaign with Mitt Romney, due to Sandy's devastation. But he has time for an appearance on SNL? More here

I think our whole political system has degraded into one "dog & pony show". It's like a really bad version of American Idol. On the "Twinkie" matter...it amazes me that more people are upset over the loss of a stupid snack than the loss of more American jobs.

E.D. - you're right. One can thank the "experts" in education for much of this.
