Kindasorta my fault.
Long term, I'm not worried. Short term, not too confident. You can do a ton of damage in 4 or 8 years. Look at GW Bush. And it wasn't as polarized coming out of the Clinton years as it is today. I blame cable news and politicians who aren't afraid to misinform, disinform and just flat out lie. When somebody messes up and is honest about what they really think, not just what's on their list of talking points, like this Aiken guy, they pay for it on occasion. Not very often tho, and the cable so called news shows get away scot free. It's becoming acceptable to make ridiculous claims and promises and never come through and still be a hero, wtf?
