Conservative misses liberal columnist

I never thought I’d miss Sid Schwab! How can this be?

He didn’t see the stonewalling of Benghazi. Maybe he even thought like many (if not most) of the writers to the editor that conservatives deserved to be targeted for political reasons by the IRS. He’s probably found a way to rationalize the lies (they were, after all, for our own good) that Obama and the Democrats told about Obama care. You can keep your own insurance and doctor?

So how can I miss him?

Well, probably a part of his agenda was to generate conversation and he did that very well. He didn’t like “southrons,” conservatives or Republicans, and I’m southern, conservative and therefore vote Republican, but the man knew how to generate thinking and letters to the editor. So, bring back Dr. Schwab. Better yet alternate him with a local conservative who can also generate conversation.
