Letters to the Editor

Masterful definitions

To the Editor:

Kudos to Donna Davis for her response to columnist Cal Thomas (Oct. 4, It’s Your Write). You said it better than most of us. It is a travesty that the GOP would insist that President Barack Obama is the partisan one when the GOP rightfully deserve that label.

It is so true that the Cal Thomases of the media world have the power of the pen, while we earthlings can only scratch our heads and wonder how the right is so blind. As Davis said, the GOP led by Mitch McConnell is rabid against Obama. He admits with no shame that he had one reason for being a senator and that is to get Obama out of office. Well, the American people did not agree. I have to wonder why we pay these people to do the opposite of what the people want. It is sad to note that most of these characters will be re-elected.

I wish that the naysayers in Congress would lose their health care and have to fend alone, as they wish thousand of citizens to do.

Thank you, Donna Davis, for your insight and masterful definitions. I only hope the right will read this.
