2012 Politcal Campaign Weariness

Hour after hour, television networks, radio stations, and print media run stories about the 2012 presidential race. News interests me and I try to stay current, but much of the political coverage is biased. Sometimes I wonder if the slant of the story was determined before facts were gathered. I'm tired of the lies, tired of the lack of courtesy, tired of the same talking points. The political coverage has made me weary, so weary I don't watch the debates. At this point in the campaign, the political barrage is starting to sound like white noise. Maybe it is time for both parties to remember public speaking basics: 1) Tell them what you're going say, 2) Say it 3) Tell them what you said. In other words, keep your message short and focused. Are you tired of the wrangling too?
