Get beyond party bias

With the GOP debate going on, it has made me realize a lot of things about politics. It seems as if both Newt (Gingrich) and (Mitt) Romney aren’t telling us what they have to offer our country, but they are telling us what is bad about the other candidate. I have seen stuff like this on not just the Republican side, but the Democratic, also. In the State of the Union, it seemed like Obama said something Republican, such as his joke about the spilled milk (I’ve ordered every federal agency to eliminate rules that don’t make sense … We got rid of one rule from 40 years ago that could have forced some dairy farmers to spend $10,000 a year proving that they could contain a spill – because milk was somehow classified as an oil. With a rule like that, I guess it was worth crying over spilled milk.”) Only Republicans would clap, and if he said something Democratic, as he did through most of his speech, only Democrats would clap. Politicians need to stop being so biased against each other, and work to do what is best for our country. I know when I’m eligible to vote, I’m going to vote for the candidate who can make this country better, no matter what party he/she is in. KAZIK LEWANDOWSKI, student, Auburn
