Wednesday’s Letters to the Editor

Harming America

EDITOR: A Republican majority in the House of Representatives voted to sue the president of the United States for the first time in history. This antic is a ridiculous waste of precious time. We have so many important issues to effectively deal with, both domestically and abroad.

The day our president was elected, the Republican Party launched a plan to undercut him in every attempt he made to be a good and effective president.

Enough.

This reminds me of Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich going on television like two comedians trying to shame then-President Bill Clinton and impeach him. This display of immaturity hurt America’s standing throughout the world. Other countries thought we were nuts.

Americans need to be reminded of the destruction these kinds of antics can have. It then snowballs into hurting relationships with allies, our security, economy, etc. It’s harmful for America.

Fighting Hamas

EDITOR: Absent from headlines about Gaza is the fact that Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other Arab countries are silently abiding Israel’s military campaign against Hamas. Those countries that have rejected the strictest forms of Islamic law and political power see Hamas as a dangerous, destabilizing force threatening their own countries as well as Israel.
