Bipartisan Fiddling?

Steven Studdert, author of a new book entitled America in Danger, may (or may not) turn out to be guilty of alarmism with regard to his concerns about the nation's future. However, it is difficult to argue with his assessment of the country's leaders from both parties in view of the rather significant long term problems we face:

It all boils down to the fact that the entire political leadership of this country is ... political. That is, they're more concerned with short-term political survival than the long-term good of the country. In my entire political career, I've never seen such a confluence of serious problems. Congress is debating whether or not ballplayers should use steroids while we've got the mortgage crisis threatening to bring down the economy, and we have the lowest wheat reserves in history.
