And you want to be my Congressman?

Via the Grand Rapids Press' profile of congressional candidate Patrick Miles.
A passer-by stopped to ask Miles, 42, a few questions.

“What do you think is the biggest problem in the country?” Comstock Park resident Phil Rood wanted to know.

“Extreme partisanship,” Miles answered without missing a beat. “The politicians in Washington are not working together to solve people’s problems.”

I read that I thought to myself, "He seriously cannot be that stupid."

The biggest problem in the United States is that Republicans and Democrats in Washington don't get along. Come on.

It's not the breakdown of the family, it's not irresponsible spending habits, it's not high unemployment, it's not debt to GDP ratio, it's not the unfunded liabilities in Medicare and Social Security. It's not any of the long list of serious issues facing our nation.

The biggest problem is that Barack Obama and John Boehner think the other one is wrong about how to solve these problems.

What a childish, thoughtless answer.
