Dems' only purpose is to tear down
Contrary to what U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., said, "there is a vast left-wing conspiracy" at work. Their aim is, as always, to tear down anything positive.

They stood in fierce opposition to any military action and now that it is over, they must see if they can alter the perception of the outcome. Robert Smock, Hephzibah, Ga.

Supports president's action in Iraq
In his July 13 letter, "President Bush deserves punishment for WMD deception," Lowell Greenbaum alleges that President George W. Bush has committed "myriad deceptions" and suggests that he deserves to be impeached.
