Author Has No Problem With ‘Personal Attacks' Against The President



I am writing in response to one author's letter asking for an apology for personal attacks against him.

While I have never attacked him personally, only his liberal viewpoints, the writer apparently believes it OK to "personally attack" President Bush.

He constantly writes negatives about our President and calls him any name he wishes, always derogatory. When you question his opinions, that is considered a "personal attack." Maybe the truth hurts.

May I remind the writer that personal attacks cut both ways. Do I detect a double standard here? I am also offended that the editor of the Roundup apologized to the writer for publishing my previous opinion from the "right," but has no problem publishing articles by the writer from the "left."
