Mercury should apologize to Roberts; he was right

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

A few weeks ago, after a few words of kindness, to appear fair, you criticized Senator Pat Roberts’ call for the resignation or firing of Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Now that her incompetence appears clearly and the debacle of President Obama’s health care debut has confused and disappointed so many, it is time for apologies.

It would demonstrate some character and fairness on the part of this very liberal newspaper to publicly admit the senator’s responsibility to make his call.

I have another complaint about Sebelius — one much more serious. It is my strong opinion — this is the opinion section, isn’t it? — that she didn’t conduct herself in public office so as to instill confidence in the citizenry. In my view, nothing —nothing — is more evil than partial-birth abortion. There is ample hard evidence that she supported that Wichita doctor who regularly performed that horrendous business.

One very modern lady with an advanced degree and a respon-sible position said we wouldn’t have voted for Sebelius had we known of her support for that doctor. Some still will; they get carried away with support for feminism.
