Letter: An embarrassment
Re “From O’Brien, a despicable argument” (Monitor editorial, Aug. 5):
I fail to see how anyone can be surprised by any off-the-wall statements made by Bill O’Brien. Regardless of the fact that the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 has absolutely no relation to Obamacare, we see again that O’Brien will go to any length, no matter how low, to get face time. A law as reprehensible as the Slave Act sounds like something O’Brien would have thought up back in the 1850s.
This individual is already making overtures about running for Congress in the next election. While he was speaker of the New Hampshire House, he embarrassed our state on countless occasions with his idiotic viewpoints, acerbic discourse and management by intimidation style. Now he wants to take his clown car to Washington, where he can sow more seeds of discord. Do they really need that sort of help in Washington? O’Brien should go back to Massachusetts, where they’re accustomed to idiots in politics.
