The president must put the country ahead of partisan politics

Republican PartyBarack ObamaU.S. Congress

I read with great interest the Sun editorial, "Unbalanced Budgeting" (Mar 13). The sub-headline summed up that the difference between the two parties is so great that compromise seems impossible. Well, isn't that where the president steps in and brokers a compromise?

The president, regardless of party affiliation, is the leader of our country and should put partisan politics aside to achieve consensus in Congress. President Barack Obama has proven time and time again that his first and only job is pushing the Democratic doctrine and maligning the Republican Party. Is it any wonder the Republican Party doesn't trust this President? With Mr. Obama there is no common ground and all else be damned.
