Our leaders need a timeout

The 535 members of Congress, and the president, are supposed to be responsible adults. They act more like a bunch of bratty children. I don’t need senators, representatives and the president getting on the TV every night blaming each other for the mess we are in. I don’t care who is responsible. I do care that these clowns put aside their partisanship and at least make an effort to fix our problems.

One side is as bad as the other when it comes to this “he’s touching me!” kind of juvenile behavior. Stop it! Do your jobs, be adults. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Speaker John Boehner, and whoever they think they need should be locked into a room, fed MREs and warm water, and not be let out until they come to some solutions.

President Barack Obama needs to get off the campaign trail, stop pontificating, and start doing his job: showing some leadership! I really don’t know who to be more disgusted with, the clowns in Washington, D.C., or “we the people” who keep re-electing these losers again and again.
