TAKING THE BATTLE ACROSS THE AISLE | Letter

It’s extremists on the left he abhors

RENÉE LOTH’S Jan. 8 op-ed column “What a difference 40 years makes - or not’’ almost has it right when she writes, “Americans don’t like extremists, and they may reject the unyielding forces of the right.’’

As an independent voter, the extremists I object to are the unyielding politicians on the left who will not cut one penny in spending, and who continue to borrow, approve 2 percent pay raises for government workers, enjoy $16 muffins, and do not dare explain to our arrogant president that taking golf vacations in these critical times might offend millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans.
