Bulletin letter to the editor: If it's 'right and wrong,' hold both parties accountable

I am writing in reply to Will Labovitch's letter ("GOP needs to be held accountable") in the Dec. 5 edition of the Bulletin.

It is amazing to me that there are so many people who are concerned about right and wrong but seem to only focus on the issues when they are the ones who have been wronged.

Labovitch, who defines himself as a moralist, wrote: "... it was never about left and right to me but right and wrong," so it seems reasonable that he would be equally concerned about the wrong decisions our current president, or those who support him, are making.

As I was reading his list of accusations, I was reminded of the wise words: "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" (Matthew 7:3). I could certainly list many accusations against the Democratic Party and the media who seem to think our president can do no wrong.

I encourage everyone to research Labovitch's claims as well as all the controversy in today's political arena and decide for yourself if the arguments he made are really so one-sided. If it really is about "right and wrong," then shouldn't Labovitch be equally concerned that both parties be held accountable?
