Quit Talking It To Death and Just Do It, Accomplish Something

Obama has been in office for a few days over a year and the voters are starting to look at his record and less at the Bush record and all across America voters are less than impressed.

Obama beat McCain 53% to 46% in the 2008 election (Virginia).     Few of the topics Obama talked about have been realized and that spells trouble for local democrats even though local democrats have nothing to loose.   (You have to hold an office to lose an office.)     The trouble is gaining anything may be impossible when there is no accomplishment to hang your hat on.

What do you say?     It would have been worse if you hadn't elected us.     How do you make your case?     We have been planning on fixing that for the last three years since we took over the House and for the last year while we controlled everything, it just sort of slipped by us.

Excuses no longer cut it.     The tide is shifting and we are losing the trust of the people.
