The party left him

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

I see the Repub­li­cans have lost yet an­other House seat in Mis­sis­sippi. They just don’t get it. Pres­i­dent Bush car­ried all th­ese dis­tricts by wide mar­gins. They have dis­tanced them­selves from Mr. Bush and any­thing re­motely con­ser­va­tive and have purged our party of any con­ser­va­tive lead­er­ship.

All the Democrats had to do from 2002 to 2006 was ask for the McCains and Boehn­ers of the party to get rid of any con­ser­va­tive leader they didn't like and presto, they were gone. The Repub­li­cans were given to­tal con­trol of the na­tion for 12 years and they failed so badly that in­stead of hav­ing a gen­er­a­tion of vot­ers be­hind them they have lost ev­ery­thing by act­ing like Democrats.

In the mean­time, the Democrats have found as many con­ser­va­tive blue dogs as they could and have re-taken power. They will not lose that power as they know what got them the ma­jor­ity, which is to act like and talk like con­ser­va­tives. I am no longer a reg­is­tered Repub­li­can, I am a con­ser­va­tive in­de­pen­dent who has lit­tle choice but to look at the Repub­li­cans in elec­tions. Just a side note, John McCain will not be get­ting my vote. Mark D. Plivelich Spokane, Wash­ing­ton
