"POLITICIANS ARE THE WORST"
"You must be single minded. Drive for the one thing on which you have decided. You will find that you will make some people miserable; those you love and very often yourself. And, if it looks like you are getting there, all kinds of people, including some whom you thought were loyal friends, will suddenly show up doing their Goddamndest, hypocritical best to trip you up, blacken you, and break your spirit. Politicians are the worst; they'll wear their country's flag in public, but they'll use it to wipe their asses in the caucus room, if they think that it will win them a vote."--General George S. Patton, Jr.
***In life, this quote rings very true. People sometimes will go to extraordinary lengths to slow you down. Some do it openly; some will operate against you behind the scenes. Some are envious of your accomplishments or of what you're going to accomplish; others have issues of self-confidence.
Then there's that "special" person who's in congress. Political gain is the goal and it will be reached at any cost. President Bush is all too familiar with the political creature who will do whatever it takes to impede his progress. No matter what he does, these people will most certainly do their Goddamndest to get in his way, to trip him up.
After watching Charles Rangel on O'Reilly last night, this quote came to mind.
