Editorials flip over presidential appointments
To the editor:
How short is your memory? While under the administration of the previous president, you lauded the efforts of certain U.S. senators to block appointees that you deemed unsuitable. A president's appointments are generally regarded among the most political actions that he takes and are justly perceived as rewards. It is for these reasons that senatorial review is required for many.
When you vilify a political process when it goes against your stated leanings, yet applaud it when it agrees, you have committed the worst form of hypocrisy. Shame on you, Southeast Missourian. You should remember your own editorials.
