Can­di­date folly

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Tele­phone calls are com­ing in ask­ing me to con­trib­ute to this or that Repub­li­can can­di­date. Some of the calls are ac­com­pa­nied by tes­ti­mony from a can­di­date that re­cites the litany of po­lit­i­cal po­si­tions that sound great and would truly bol­ster the Amer­i­can con­ser­va­tives and save our coun­try. How­ever, the Repub­li­can can­di­dates we elected prior to the 2006 na­tional elec­tion did not carry out the prom­ises they made be­fore we elected them. What's more, the Repub­li­cans that sur­vived the 2006 elec­tion have taken no ef­fec­tive ac­tion to stop the left-wing ini­tia­tives of the Demo­crat ma­jor­ity in Congress.

My great­est con­cern is the Demo­crat ma­jor­ity in Congress; they would rather lost the war in Iraq than risk hav­ing Pres­i­dent Bush and the Repub­li­can Party re­ceive any credit for an Amer­i­can vic­tory. I hear noth­ing from the Repub­li­cans in de­fense of our pres­i­dent's poli­cies. This is why the largely con­ser­va­tive-minded Amer­i­can elec­torate turned the Repub­li­cans out of the ma­jor­ity po­si­tion in the 2006 elec­tions.

If a sea change in the at­ti­tude and ac­tions by the Repub­li­cans in Congress to sup­port our great pres­i­dent doesn’t hap­pen this year, our coun­try will feel the na­tional shame of los­ing the war in Iraq and the pain of fu­ture at­tacks on our home­land by the Is­lamic fa­nat­ics who will come here and pop­u­late in our midst.
