People want to see real change

To the editor:

Once again I cannot help but notice how the political opinions expressed by this right-wing newspaper seem to move on to other issues when there is a problem in the Republican Party. For years all you ever heard from these people was how terrible it was that Bill Clinton disgraced the office of the presidency. He wasn't the first one. He wasn't even the first Democrat, but at least he wasn't obsessed with boys. We also never heard about Newt Gingrich and the fact that he was cheating on his wife with a young staffer in his office. This was going on while he was trying to impeach President Clinton for sexual misconduct. Now Gingrich is retired with a full pension from our Congress and a medical program that most of us would love to have. If you've seen the latest polls, people have had enough and want to see real change.
