To the editor:
We have seen a barrage of TV ads recently; a politician photo-opting with businessmen, veterans and of course children, even before U.S. Rep. Radel's resignation. I don't think there is anyone who could not figure out what was coming!
Have we citizens been reduced to succumb to a few "sound bites" on TV by politicians to lure us to vote for them for a public office position? Isn't it more important of what they have done for people, rather than what they say they are going to do for people, or who they say they are?
When I went on the web to get more insight into the term "Political Posturing" I found a very appropriate view on the meaning of Political Posturing: "Creating the semblance of doing something when really doing nothing, in the hope of having onlookers fall for their charade."
In my opinion, what our country desperately needs are leaders with a record of accomplishments in creating a better life for people, not sound bite posturing politicians!
