Blame Game

All politics has come down to in the past few years is one giant blame game.

Whenever something bad happens, one side accuses the other side of creating policies that caused the problem, yet no one takes responsibility for their own screw ups.

For the past year and a half the blame game has seem to gotten even worse due to the economy.

Republicans are blaming the Democrats and President Obama for this mess and not wanting to work with them or even listen to them, while the Democrats keep blaming the Republicans and former President Bush because what has happened with the economy started when Bush was in office.

So I say this, to both sides:

To the Democrats: Bush is not in charge anymore, and you do have to work with the Republicans.

To the Republicans: You have to try harder to work with the Democrats, or at least work with the ones who will work with you.

And to both: This situation with the economy has been a long time coming, and you should have seen it and taken care of it a long time ago.

As I said before, we need to stop this "pointing fingers" thing that seems to keep going on and instead of refusing to work with each, both sides need to start working with each other and figure out how to fix this problem with our economy before the country tears itself apart!
