More reasons why we need to join together to take our country back:

  • Trust Issues: According to a new Gallup poll, just 8% have a great deal of trust in our federal government when it comes to handling international problems; just 6% have a great deal of trust in our government when it comes to handling domestic problems.
  • Shouldn't We Expect More From Our Leaders? "Federal investigators are hinting that a fresh wave of campaign-related theft and corruption investigations of Members of Congress are moving through the pipeline, signaling that indictments may be on the horizon," Roll Call reports. "According to multiple sources and independent confirmation from agency officials, the Justice Department currently is honing in on the possible misuse of campaign money. ... The Federal Election Commission also confirmed that it currently is investigating 10 embezzlement cases involving federal campaign committees — four more than its entire caseload in half a decade." 

  • Already, Spending Is Out Of Control: Mitt Romney is the first presidential candidate to run at least 10,000 political ads this election cycle -- "a record for the number of ads run at this point in a presidential primary campaign," CNN reports. Meanwhile, AP predicts that "calculated attack ads by candidates seeking to shake up the field are likely in the next three months." 
  • Quotable: "Sen. Larry Craig, Idaho Republican, is going back on his word again.... No wonder so many American voters have such a dim view of Washington politicians" --columnist Debra Saunders.
