Disheartened, but Rededicated

A majority of U.S. Citizens proved why we are falling behind every other country in just about everything, education among them.  They voted in the party that told them their goal was to obstruct everything and win in 2012.
I foresee another ridiculous, baseless, obstructionist Impeachment attempt.
Republicans want to regain power and are willing to sacrifice the good of the Nation to do so.
They have promised No Compromise!  They have talking points, but no solid plans!
The people forgot the past 8 years of increasing federal spending, raping the constitution and bankrupting the country and voted for the people who did it!
Seriously, read this! (also linked under bankrupting the country)
Bush made a lot of the problems worse, not Obama.  Obama was only trying to make things a little less harsh - and succeeded - then get things back on track - which the Republicans blocked every attempt.  Simply because if Obama succeeded, they couldn't get back into power.

All I can say is, Voters, you SCREWED UP royally and I am afraid of the consequences of your actions.

Seriously, read the consequences article!  People doing way better than the U.S. in jobs and most importantly, Education - say its a disaster.
And, while I am irked, there are some good suggestions about how to proceed.
Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer--and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class
You voted for the Rich to Keep Getting Richer, while the rest of us suffer and the U.S. falls further and further behind the rest of the world.

and just adding a quote I found from an article :

Some voters bucked at the incongruity, repeatedly telling pollsters that even programs that have clearly helped the economy, like the $787 billion stimulus, did no such thing. Meanwhile, the resulting spike in deficits, which has been greatly magnified by tax revenue lost to the economic downturn, has spooked a broad sweep of the country, which simply does not trust Washington to responsibly handle such a massive liability.
