Danny Westneat on Republicans

Ironic call to action

In a recent column by Danny Westneat, negativity of the Republican Party is alleged in a negative manner [“It’s not just politics, it’s a crisis,” NW Wednesday, April 22]. In the same column, name-calling is portrayed in a negative way –which it should be — and a few paragraphs later, Westneat says that he accepts negativity.

The same column blasts Republicans for failing to articulate positive steps needed to solve the current economic crisis, but offers no positive policy prescriptions.

Does anyone fail to see irony jumping off the page?

— Eric Tronsen, Seattle
