You're Doing it Wrong

Well folks, the day we've all been waiting for has finally arrived.

Mitt Romney finally released his tax returns, and now everyone can ditch the mud-flinging campaign strategies we're all so tired of.

Wait, what's that Democrats? You're not happy with the release of his returns? Well why not?

Turns out, everybody is just looking for a way to nitpick at the other side. I have a piece of advice for you nitpickers. I have literally picked nits out of a girl's hair for hours. It's not fun. So why do we endlessly nitpick at people we don't even like?

I'll tell you why. Maybe, just maybe, it's because nobody likes what's happening on their own side. Maybe if the Democrats were satisfied with what's happening in office at present, they wouldn't feel the need to pick apart the other side and point out what they're doing wrong. They could talk about what's going right, and in the harsh light of day, we'd have to admit that maybe the POTUS is doing the right stuff. We'd all vote Obama and Romney would have to wait another 4 years.

Of course, we all pick at what the other side does right, too... Must... not... invalidate argument... 

I do not mean to say that the Republicans are doing a great job either. If they had a candidate who they felt would win in a landslide, they might not have to rip apart the Democrats and their strategy.


Long story short, I think everyone is doing it wrong. Anyone have ideas on how to do it right?

  1. It is getting so OLD! I absolutely agree with your point, and even if it does invalidate your point, they just can't stop nitpicking literally EVERYTHING! I read Uchtdorf's talk from last conference, it applies to the current political climate, if only all the political pundits would read the conference reports...

    1. It's been too long since I looked at the conference reports, I'll have to look. Are you referring to his regular talk or priesthood talk?

  2. First of all, I haven't seen any evidence that you payed YOUR taxes before I married you. And it's equally obvious that Obama's tax returns are forged, because how could an Indonesian citizen pay taxes here?

    1. Don't you know anything? Obama is KENYAN. Duh. ;)

  3. I was actually hoping for a foreign-born president who never paid taxes, so I guess I'm the most disappointed person possible right now.

  4. This reminds me of a link one of my Facebook friends posted a while ago; it's delightfully satirical. Take a look, it's pretty funny.

    1. I love it, If only I were brilliant enough to have written that instead of this half-crocked nonsense...

  5. Let's just have one big super primary nationally before the party conventions, and ban all political advertising until one month before the elections. By then everybody will have made up their minds anyway and we won't be subjected to the previous 18 months of nitpicking.

  6. I am sure that there must have been times when someone in the UK ran for office and there was concern about how much tax they paid but it just never seems to reach quite the fever pitch that it has done in the US. It is a strange political phenomenon.
