In response to Robert Ehlert’s opinion Sunday, May 8, it’s the Democrat party. Both parties are Democratic in procedure. Next, if both presumptive candidates you and the people you run with find hard to swallow, you and they are about half right. Swallowing is hard for a candidate who began her political career by being thrown off a committee of her peers for lying and unethical behavior in the Nixon investigation followed by more lies than space here to recount, but including the big one told the American people and families of the brave Americans lost in the Benghazi episode. Your other “ugly” choice is a fresh face ... a highly successful businessman who, you can be sure, would find a way to keep General Motors, Ford, Carrier, and others with their jobs, in this country, while, at the same time, shaking up the seniority/entitlement process in place with the two largest businesses in the U.S.; the Republican and Democrat parties. What they have given us is $21 trillion in debt and a deal to light up the Middle East by putting a nuke in Iran’s hands. It’s time to try a different approach with a patriot who has proven to know what he’s doing.
