I don’t think I am alone in wishing Republican politicians would stand with President Barack Obama during times of national crisis. While most crises are 24/7 news media generated, some are truly critical to the safety, well-being and security of our nation.
It seems the knee-jerk reaction of the entire Republican political establishment is geared to being critical of the president even before the issue is analyzed for importance, and I for one am tired of it! Issues such as ISIS and Ebola require a united front from our people in positions to do something about them, not criticism! We pay them to do a job and the job description does not include dividing the country in times of national crisis but uniting us.
So, I will just say this to Republicans in political power (and perhaps those who vote for them), start being American first, Republican second! The country can only gain from such thinking.
