Editorial page does splendid work

  • Follow Letters

The Dec. 6 editorial page is priceless.

To start with, the marvelous cartoon by Rick McKee. I admire his splendid talent, and now he shows he knows history.

I am an American who heard Churchill's address on the radio. It was delivered in the darkest days for Britain. They were suffering daily destruction by Hitler's Luftwaffe . There were blackouts, and Londoners were taking refuge in the underground. Here was a leader who inspired his countrymen: "We shall never surrender."

Yes, a true leader, and look at who we have here as commander in chief now. The guy isn't worthy of any comparison, which at best would be odious, let alone leading this great nation.

Rick's cartoon, combined with Charles Krauthammer's marvelous column, is no coincidence, I am sure. It is due to editorial direction.

Let me commend Rick for his cartoon and for his work in the past.

Let me also commend Editorial Page Editor Michael Ryan. I thank them both.

W..J. Mullane, have you

W..J. Mullane, have you visited an eye doctor or an ear specialist lately? You seem to have a visual and comprehensive handicap when considering one source media news providers. There are a number of sources that would take issue with the warped, one-sided cartoons of Rick McGee and the highly conservativive biases of the editorial staff at the Augusta Chronicle. GGpap

The foolish mistake that put

The foolish mistake that put the mad Marxist in office is at best horrible and , at worst, an insane experiment gone wrong. Comparing him to anyone other than Carter makes no sense. "Compared to Carter, Obama is a stupidly incompetent president"

Or he could stay here and

Or he could stay here and fight socialism and fascism, and send all those who want European style socialism, back to Europe.

Tigger, you're right, Obama

Tigger, you're right, Obama is exactly like Hitler, pre-ethnic cleansing. I don't think he'll follow Hitler's path much farther, after this health care scam he'll have total control. I'm seeing a lot of Chavez after this becomes law.
