Letter: Put an end to partisan politics

A recent video created by the Democratic National Committee starts off by showing protesters and has a man narrating, "The right-wing extremist Republican base is back." Keep in mind, these are regular people, holding homemade signs, not at all similar to distributed ACORN demonstration signs. It goes on, "...Now desperate Republicans and their well-funded allies are organizing angry mobs... They have no plan for moving our country forward, so they called out the mob."

President Obama constantly reassured Americans during his campaign how he wants to strike down partisanship in America's politics. Where is Obama when the DNC is blatantly spewing absurd partisan rhetoric? Let me not go without saying the GOP may be just as responsible for partisan advertisements. There is plenty enough blame to go around.

I say this: Enough of partisan politics. Enough of the Democrats, enough of the Republicans. When will Americans truly come together, elect true public servants, and promptly say, "Enough!"?
