Obama could stop this

The childishness going on in our nation’s capital is really deplorable on both sides. The speaker (of the House) “talks” about our ever-so-evolved Constitution but does not enforce the true value of it. This hate and discontent will go on until Nov. 20 unless it stops.

There is one man that can address this critical issue and bring positive results. That man is President Obama. He is the leader of the Democrats. He can ask our speaker to stop this rhetoric of hate and division and allow the people to decide the winner of our next national election.

What a country this will be when we the people can sit down and reasonably talk about our difference of opinion. We will be the envy of the world more so than ever before, and President Obama will leave a giant legacy behind. As he told our present president: “You succeed, America succeeds.” We all need his leadership now.

As our present president goes: stop the immature tweets, stop the name-calling. You do not need to do this to keep your base. We want positive talk, enough of the negative. As one leader said, “We are not blue states, we are not red states, we are the United States.” It’s time we the people comply.
