Letters to the Editor

Democrats aren’t the only patriots

In a recent letter published in the News-Times, a writer excoriated Gov. Romney for daring to disagree with President Obama.

Perhaps that writer has conveniently forgotten that Hillary Clinton said after she had attacked President Bush, “To criticize the government is the highest form of patriotism.”

Could it be that the right to criticize is held solely by the Democrats? It appears so.
