Your view: Can't save GOP

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

That was a stimulating editorial in the May 16 edition. You gave high marks to all the 11 House Republicans who met with President Bush in an effort to change his policies so that the Party might salvage the 2008 elections.

This writer has two principal reactions to that effort. First, it is too late to save the Republican candidates in November 2008. Secondly, it is obvious to most observers that the Republicans supported the President's policies as long as he was popular. As he becomes unpopular, the oppose his policies. This does not speak well to the credibility and integrity of the Republican elected officials.

Finally, it will take more living on food stamps for Republican candidates to savor victory in '08.

Respectfully yours,

Bill D. Burlison
