In response to Roland Martin: Congressmen are not designed to lead

Roland Martin has a problem with congressmen who act like politicians instead of leaders.  I appreciate Mr. Martin’s argument but the reality is that the legislative branch is not designed to encourage leadership.

Congressmen are more like engineers and government is the black box that they tinker with in order to distribute wealth from one sector of society to another.

They are not in Washington to solve problems. They are there to expand the feeding trough for the constituents they are there to represent. This activity does not call for leadership. It calls for gamesmanship.
