sabotage?

Yahoo: …As an American citizen, I would think – or at least hope – that elected government representatives would … put the country’s interests firsts, even if those interests conflicted with their personal desire to gain more power or get re-elected.

My colleague Dan Gross, however, who has covered Washington for two decades, thinks that this principle – if it ever existed – has been thrown out the window. …Dan argues, Republicans are doing everything they can to ensure that the economy remains a mess when it comes time for the 2012 election…

…If this is actually what some Republicans are doing, Americans of both parties should be outraged. The first loyalty of any elected representative should be acting in the best interests of the country., and advocating policies that you know will hurt the country – or stonewalling ones that will help it – is a gross dereliction of professional and civic responsibility.
