Dear Editor,

I'm really having trouble with the titles "GOP Senate leader" and "House Speaker" - what has Mitch McConnell done "lately" to deserve his title and what has John Boehner ever done to merit his role?

There are many of us who feel neglected and misrepresented in the House as well as the Senate.

McConnell is a "Mickey Mouse" turncoat.

Beohner is a "bend and fold" weakling.

The incompetence and lousy leadership of these two guys just might help get the worst president in history get re-elected. Their lack of fortitude in "surrendering" on the payroll tax issue is further proof that neither has the courage of his convictions.

Concerned, conservative, patriotic citizens are simply victims of political nonsense without proper congressional representation.

Yes, the Grand Old Party has become the "Groveling Oppressive Party."

God Bless America.

Richard Doran
