Let's Talk About Important Stuff

I have to tell you, I don't care about Rush Limbaugh or how the head of the RNC had to apologize to him. I don't even care that the Obama's are doing conga lines at White House parties. I want the media to focus on important stuff.
Stuff like the war in Iraq, how Obama's housing bailout is really going to work, if we are going to even try to get universal health care, or will 17,000 more troops in Afghanistan make any difference.
How about a media primer on how the Federal Reserve works, or better yet, what the Federal Reserve is.
You would think, with the Democrats in control of both Houses of Congress and the White House, they would want to talk about what they are trying to do. Somehow, Barack Obama and his crew have fallen into the same pattern that the Bush White House was in. Trash talk about the other Party, and say nothing of substance.
Trivial talk is for children. What we need is adults talking about the important issues.
