Gabbard’s Syria trip shows her ambition
Richard Borreca nailed it in examining U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s “boneheaded” (and then some) recent trip to Syria (“Tulsi Gabbard overreaches in lofty comparisons with Patsy Mink and President Eisenhower,” Star-Advertiser, On Politics, Feb. 12). To compare herself with President Dwight Eisenhower and the late U.S. Rep. Patsy Mink reveals a rather swollen political ego. I’ve always liked Gabbard, and was very pleased to see her put Mufi Hanneman’s political career to bed.
As a Vietnam-era Army veteran, I honor her service.
Of late, however, she’s gotten a bit over her skis. I think that when Gabbard looks in the mirror, she sees a near-future U.S. senator, and very possibly a future U.S. president.
Mazie Hirono, look out!
