Is anyone else sick of the 2012 election yet?

We've got 16 months till the general election and about 6 months till the first primary votes are cast, yet it seems like the only thing I ever see or hear about on the news is the election. Who's running, who should or shouldn't join the race, who's leading, who's fading, who said what stupid thing. I'm already sick of it. Wake me up around March (when the primaries are in full swing) and again in September or October. I'm sick of this non-stop election cycle crap. I wish for once politicians would spend even 10% of the effort they spend raising money and campaigning actually DOING THEIR JOBS!!!

    That sounds nice, but the best thing we can hope for from Washington theses days is Gridlock. Keep them from making the situation worse.

    I am not sick of it because I have paid zero attention to it. I haven't watched the news in months and won't until the primaries get rolling. I already know who I am voting for in the election. Whoever is running against Obama. All I have to decide is who I am voting for in the SC primary and there's plenty of time for that. So this election I decided to save myself some stress and simply ignore it until time to make a decision.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Got to Agree with Dan J and cpj on this one. Oh I will go vote but as far as the Rhetoric and BS I see on the TV I am sick and tired of that BS..... It gets worse and worse every election year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It all a bunch of half-truths and lies, and he said, she said, he did she did.....:blah::blah::vomit::devil::yesno:

    I stopped watching TV news a long time ago every thing I need is on the internet and when the time comes to vote I will have done my searches and made my decisions. Don't care what the news or politicians have to say their actions will have already told their story.

    I'm more sick of the O and his band of scum sucking commies in the Whitehouse and Congress.

    Plan on feeling sick for a long time.
