Letters to the Editor

Bush, GOP

May 23, 2008

To the editor:

With the lowest approval ratings of any sitting president in modern history, Mr. Bush continues to make statements that prove the adage that it is far, far better to be thought a fool than to speak and prove it. However, he continues to talk and act as though he is determined to take what is left of the Republican Party with him when he leaves office.

His previous actions have already given the Democrats both houses of Congress. Now he seems determined to sweep away what remains of the party that brought him to office in the first place, even in the Deep South. Now that was really a shocker. So now we know that only a complete fool can lose the general election for president to any Republican candidate. So now all we can do is wait and see which one the Democrats pick.

Everett Hickam,

Lawrence

If McCain wins, a liberal will be in the White House.Don't let this recent move to the right fool you.McCain is a liberal and is pandering now just to get elected president as a republican.

I don't see an editorial value component in this letter. Mr. Hickman, are you a Democrat and just writing this for something to do, or are you a republican and you're mad at George Bush and republicans? This is a ridiculous letter just due to the fact this sort of thing has been written enough to fill the entire congressional library three or four times over. It has nothing to offer to the reading public. Lawrence World editor, would you step in just one time and give an opinion on your opinion section, please? While you're at it, could you have your internet editor explain how it's decided who can stay and comment and who is not allowed to? It's not due to what's said, because the liberal commentators say every it of harsh things as the handful of conservative commentators say, the latter who is summarily booted that even a few of the liberals have questioned why.Can these be addressed or are the same shoddy practives going to be in place? Just because you've won a few awards I guess you, Mr. Editor feel entitled to do whatever your little heart desires, right?Anyway, what a rant. Just pick better letters to you in the future that can contribute to some---any type of value for the reader.Thanks.

I hope all the Democrats have their hopes so unreasonably high as this fellow. Reality is that this election will again come down to a few swing states like Missouri, Ohio, and Florida. McCain is not Bush, and while Bush's approval ratings are low, the dems' ratings aren't exactly high in comparison. Keep thinking this is a slam dunk though, and don't work hard on the campaign, and you'll see what will happen.

Actually, Everett, only a complete fool would think the Demorats offer any sort of alternative at all. If you think things can't get worse, just remember back to the late '70s. Now THAT's scary.
