WASHINGTON, May 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Presidential candidate Gary Bauer observed that not all politicians should be dusting off their resumes as voters are going to the polls on Tuesday. "It's not anti-incumbent aversion that is sweeping across America, it's a universal disbelief in government as the answer to life's problems," said Bauer.
The chairman of the Campaign for Working Families made the following analysis of the current election environment:
"Big Media and the chattering classes on the left claim that an anti-incumbency fever explains the push back from the American people against many Democrats and some Republicans at the ballot box. But they seem to deliberately ignore that voters are not fed up with ALL incumbents, but with big-government, big taxing, big spending politicians who consistently seize power and money from ordinary people and force themselves into the homes and businesses of hard-working Americans.
"It's not ALL incumbents who are in danger of unemployment; it's those who have become gluttons of government power and money.
"Voters have had enough of politicians who don't even take the time to do their jobs and read the bills they vote on. Voters are tired of politicians who give no thought as to what kind of cut backs middle class Americans will have to make to satisfy the insatiable appetite of big government.
"When big media and liberal commentators dumb down the election results, interpreting them as either an anti-incumbent mood or a few personal problems, they ignore the fact that voters are a discerning group. As we watch the European experiment in socialism crumble before our eyes, Americans are rejecting Obama's socialist model here at home. Americans agree that big government is the problem, not the solution. Politicians who don't watch what they spend in Washington, D.C., will find that they have to pay a big price at home."
