Presidential Candidates Need to Act Like Grownups

Featured imageIt is my sincere hope that the Republicans who run for president don’t get into an anti-Obama campaign. In other words, I do not want to see them run a campaign that says, “I am opposed to all of these things Obama did.” This would be extremely partisan and detrimental to our country. This type of activity would undermine and dismiss the great strides already taken by our current president to improve things for us all, as is the aim of every president. Thinking back on the last few years, there have been signs that say this is exactly what we will see.

Hearing the Senate Majority Leader say, “Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term,” (washingtonpost.com) lets us know that we have a major issue on our hands. The number one job of our House and Senate should be something like ending homelessness in the U.S., or creating world peace; not impeaching the president.

Issues of substance should be the things that are focused on during AND after the election. Do the job you were elected to do. The last thing that should be happening is the bashing of the opposite party. We expect our politicians to represent their communities, respect each other and act like adults.
