Regarding Richard Renew's April 30 letter, "Nation will survive 'power-hungry' president; should be 'impeached'":
Renew obviously wrote this in a fit of rage, as is apparent in his repeated use of the word "coward." Why not call him a "yellow belly," Mr. Renew?
On a different note, I would like to commend Mr. Renew for showing the community how ignorant he really is towards the leadership in this country. Certainly, calling the president of the United States a "freak" does not promote the support of our troops overseas. Would he call the pastor of his church a "freak"? Would he call his teacher in school a "freak"? Of course he wouldn't.
We are all people of a civilized community who, regardless of the fact of whether we like our leaders or not, are bound to uphold respect for them. Also a point of interest is Renew's recollection of a past wartime. As citizens know by now, this war is unlike any other we have fought before. Surely if you are going to bash the president, you can come up with better justification that recollecting such an unrelated event as the Vietnam War. In fact, I invite anyone to come up with a past war parallel to the one we are fighting today.
Even more foolish of Renew was to bring up Bush's exceptional undergraduate years at Yale. Finally, can Renew imagine how it would look to the enemy if our president was impeached during a time of war? What kind of signals would that send to our opposition, the terrorists? Is Renew thinking rationally? ...
