It’s 4 PM, Friday, and the verdict is still not out as to whether Congress will pass the necessary funding to keep Homeland Security running at full force. While I’m sure that it will happen – because no politician would be willing to shoulder the blame if funding lapsed and a terror attack occurred on the homeland during that period. That, however, is not what disturbs us. It’s the blatant waste of time and ineptitude that Congress repeatedly demonstrates – a partisan fight between Democrats and Republicans, as well as an inter-partisan fight between Moderate and Conservative Republicans.
Holding that aside, how is it possible that Mitch McConnell, the republican leader of the Senate, could go two weeks without talking to John Boehner, the Speaker of the House? They are from the same party. What are these guys doing in Washington?
So while pondering this, I thought, as long as there is a divergence between the White House and either Congress or the Senate, we will continue to face this ineptitude. The thought also rings true that if the same party controlled the White House, and both houses of Congress, then the “have it their way” game could lead to a bitter divide, and who knows what in legislative outcomes.
So how about an Independent for the Presidency- a fiscally conservative person with a social conscience to address the issues. Conservative Democrats, combined with Non-Conservative Republicans, could ban together and elect the next President. When issues arise – he’s the man in the middle to broker the deal between the Dems and Reps – since he is aligned to neither.
