Yawn

The national debt hits $16,600,000,000, and the people … yawn.

Gas hits a record $4 a gallon in February, and the people … yawn.

The United States matches Europe’s anemic employment and growth rates, and the people … yawn.

Four Americans are slaughtered by terrorists in Benghazi due in large part to negligence (the only thing the administration did was lie about it), and the people … yawn.

The president takes more vacations than Louis XVI, and the people … yawn.

Is there anything, short of national collapse, that will awaken us?
