Obama VS Romney 2012: Trash Talk
I have to confess that I purposely am trying to avoid the TV and conversations that spin towards the upcoming president election of 2012. I have never really been a fan of politics and one of the biggest problems I have is that they like to trash talk one another. I just don't understand how people can feed off of all the negative information they are getting. Can we not just come to the terms that each candidate is trying their best to make some changes? Look over what they stand up for and make up your mind from there.
Another problem that seems to happen a lot of that politicians lie or fabricate the truth. I have been deceived by local politicians myself and so when it comes to the next election I try to vote them out. I have to admit that I have trash talked certain politicians before so I guess you can say I'm somewhat of a hypocrite.
I know this sounds silly but if I was running for office I would try to find out the good things about my opponent and see if we could come to terms on some of the policies, laws, or opinions that we disagree on. Why do we have to play the blame game? Why not work with each others strengths and weaknesses?
One HUGE turnoff for me when voting for a candidate is when they put out those negative TV commercials. At the end of the commercial it might say something along the lines of, "I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message." How sad...
Also, how can Mitt Romney or republicans come in and blame the "weak economy" on Barack Obama? The idea is ridiculous because it takes a lot more than one person or even a handful of politicians to create huge problems. I actually believe when it comes down to it that we as individuals should take some blame and more importantly we should work on some solutions. Why blame someone else for problems that the American people caused themselves? Sure, some problems happen overnight but trillions of dollars of debt sure doesn't.
Have you seen that commercial that some democratic group put out with Mitt Romney singing a patriotic song in the background while they state what horrible things he has done? Maybe he's not the best singer in the world (ha ha), but do you have to humiliate someone like that and try and prove that he is not as patriotic as he portrays himself to be?
Certain republicans and democrats need to grow up. We are not in middle school anymore where you just tease someone unrelentingly.
Why don't we work together instead of against each other?
