Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | GOVERNORS Give Wolf a chance Regarding criticism over Gov. Wolf's remark about Pennsylvanians having an "excess of modesty," I am so tired of the childishness of this man's opponents ("Wolf says a bit of boasting could be a boost for Pa.," Feb. 24). He isn't my governor, but we all saw his political ads, and Wolf seemed so sincere, intelligent, and genuinely concerned about his state's citizens that I was pleased when he was elected.
For weeks, Republicans have lambasted President Obama for what they claim is a major foreign- policy failure: His refusal to use the term "Islamic" to describe the terrorists of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
