Seems to me that philanthropist George Soros could pitch in and save Big Bird instead of helping President Obama reach his $1 billion campaign donation goal ("Big lies and Big Bird," Oct. 8).
As far as "big lies" goes, what Mr. Romney is saying is no worse than what candidate Obama said in calling President George W. Bush "unpatriotic and irresponsible" for adding to the deficit.
It's funny, too, that Mr. Romney's plan sounds like Gov. Martin O'Malley's holding the tax-rate the same but changing deductions and exemptions for higher-salaried folks.
No complaints from your paper about that.
