Letter: Rubens must be a threat
Re “Jim Rubens’s peashooter” (Monitor letter, Sept. 25):
Now here comes Democratic National Committeeman Peter Hoe Burling, self-anointed defender of all women supposedly aggrieved by U.S. Senate candidate Jim Rubens. I remember Burling played the race card when Susan Rice, who lied to the public about Benghazi, was voted down in her nomination as secretary of state (“Erroneous attack,” Monitor letter, Nov. 18, 2012). It is remarkable he has any editorial credibility.
Rubens must be a threat to the establishment. He has an accomplished legislative record unsurpassed in the past couple of decades. He is a doer, a problem solver and a job creator. As for Burling, I’m pressed to think of one major accomplishment of his long and self-publicized public service other than to help usher the era of Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., politics into New Hampshire. Congratulations, I guess. Even with such “success,” his panties always seem to be in such a bunch, though. Good grief.
