Letter: President's role is to bring sides together

The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

As I listen to yet another speech by the president, blaming Republicans for the ongoing congressional stalemate, I wonder if he doesn’t need to be reminded of what his job as president really is. I understand that he does not have experience in the business world, but he is not a community organizer any longer. His job is to stand above the fray, force dialogue and find resolution between the two parties; it is not to take one side and condemn the other.

His job is to act as a leader and motivator of BOTH parties and to represent all citizens of the United States.
