Letters to the Editor

Complaints are selective

A July 26 letter (“Put judgment in context”) refers to the cartoons of Michael Ramirez as being “socially destructive, irredeemable, and conscious-lowering.” The writer also mentions other letters complaining about “making our president look ugly, ridiculous, stupid, evil, etc.”

Republican presidents were also media targets for frequent ridicule. I wonder if the same folks who are complaining now were equally upset when leaders they disagreed with were ridiculed? It’s kind of like war protesters who only make noises when Republicans are in charge.

What if a Republican president did an about-face on health care mandates, spending and debt after getting elected? We would never hear an end of the vitriol from the left.
