Americans like to play the blame game, pointing fingers at each other.

Politicians don’t like each other and act like children much of the time.

The government shuts down and politicians go on vacation. Congress and the President don’t get along and nothing gets done.

It is no wonder that we are no longer seen as the superpower we once were.

Americans would like our leaders to stop pointing fingers at each other, show respect, listen to each other, compromise and make mature decisions on behalf of we Americans who elected you to power.

President Bush did the best he could at the time. I believe President Obama is doing the same.
