The Watercooler ~ RedState's Daily Open Thread

Not much to comment on today. Christopher Dorner is still at-large and keeping a lot of policemen and their families on edge.

Politically, a malaise seems to be setting in as Americans lose interest and trust in the leaders they sent to Washington. Same faces, same power-structure, little hope that they will do anything that helps the country.

On the Democratic side, the One has begrudgingly offered to help raise money for Congressional campaigns for the 2014 races. Obama even tossed them a bone stating he thinks he can help Pelosi regain the Speaker’s gavel. Democrats, feeling neglected and used by their narcissistic leader, are feeling a bit more hopeful as a result.

On the Republican side, deep fissures and distrust inside the party remain. Rove’s decision to press on and make himself relevant in spite of his own massive failures in the last election leaves many feeling disgusted with his inability to back down on his criticism of conservatives. And Rubios’s moves to work with the gang of eight leaves many doubting his motives and resenting the games that are once again being played to try to manipulate the public. Does Rubio think no one notices that he might just be being used as a front-man to make us swallow the medicine they have decided we need to take with respect to pandering to illegal aliens? If he doesn’t see that, he has already let the power go to his head.

But, alas, it is Sunday morning and I’ll leave you with this:

For I know that my Redeemer lives and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. Job 19:25
