Recently a 93 year-old man froze to death in his home. This is tragic, but it's turning into a political debate...

One of the comments on this news story (I'm not picking on anyone, and did not post the screen name, I just decided to choose this one among the many...)

Is this the "change we can believe in'' and the "yes we can" we voted for? Shame on Obama. If Bush was in office all the Liberals would have blamed this sad death on Bush, just like New Orleans.


Why are people looking for blame?! This is a tragedy!! A man lost his life! What a sad way to end...

The desire to politicize this (other than to look at the utilities policies) is a product of what the news has become and thus has produced individuals to look at the world only through personal feelings, instead of the facts. The desire to be personally right (as in correct), or vindicated, seems to out way humanity, charity and mercy.
