Voters Are Tired Of ‘Politics As Usual’

The Pennsylvania primary is finally over and many in the Keystone State are more than happy to see the twin Democratic titans leave.

But in their wake, they left many Pennsylvanians worried about when the parties will elect their champions during the two conventions and the real fighting starts.

After all, the country placed Pennsylvania under its microscope and caught a glimpse of what to expect in the coming months.

We dealt with enough of the negative campaign attacks day in and day out and the lies told to either make their opponents look bad or to make themselves look good.

And speaking with a few supporters of Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama yesterday, some of them are seem to be very disenfranchised by how the candidates have been acting.

In fact, many of them just don’t seem to care whether it’s a Democrat or a Republican who takes the White House in November; they just want someone to fix the problems that are plaguing this country.

Maybe that is the sign of the times: People are starting to look past party lines and just want anyone to fix the country. This might be the beginning of the end of how politicians operate and the old “business as usual” in Washington. Well, let us hope anyway.
