SHOOTING: Wrong to blame other party

I don’t think I have ever heard such instantaneous vitriolic comments from supposedly intelligent humans, that I’ve heard since the Tucson shootings. Are the people whom we elect to a variety of positions so ignorant and lacking confidence that they are going to blame incidents such as this on the opposite political party?

It’s time to get a filter after elections, get back to some form of civilized behavior. No one person can be such a threat to humanity that they have to be blamed for everything that goes wrong in this country.

We, as a country, cannot afford to have politicians who are so insecure and mad that they didn’t get their way in the elections that they blame talk show hosts, radio personalities or elected officials of the opposite party for something so tragic.

I am tired of the partisan excuses, threats and insecurities. Grow up!
