Letter: Twist of words
June 18, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

After reviewing a response to my letter voiced by Robert W. Heagy Jr. (“Off-the-wall rhetoric continues” letter to the editor in the June 11 edition of the Daily Journal), I would suggest that he reread my original letter.

I did not state that Republicans should compromise with Democrats.

It was Bob Dole who said, “It seems to be almost unreal that we can’t get together on a budget or legislation; we weren’t perfect but at least we got work done.”

Bob Dole didn’t say “compromise” either.

(Incidentally, Sen. John McCain’s disgust with members of his own party was ignored in this response).

This erroneous twist of words was the sole creation of letter writer Robert W. Heagy Jr.

However, I do agree with him that “hypocrites can also espouse rhetoric.”
