GOP lawmakers just backing Constitution

To the editor:

In regard to Mr. Michael Cook’s letter, (”What happened to the GOP,” the Times, Thursday, May 9), I would like to offer my response.

For the first time in a long time, there is a sizable portion of the GOP, both elected officials and rank in file, who refuse to compromise if it means conceding the U.S. Constitution.

Almost every problem we face as a nation, from the economic crisis and struggling economy to illegal immigration, can be traced to a misguided liberal policy that many times conflicted with the Constitution. The problems we face today exist because we have strayed from our Constitutional moorings, and I applaud the elected officials that Mr. Cook holds in disdain. They recognize this and are willing to act on it.

As history is recorded on U.S. presidential terms this will be one of the most shameful acts to come out of the White House. How can anyone meet halfway with a president who borders on criminal dereliction of duty and is taking the country in the wrong direction.
