Thank you, Lee Benson, for your Sept. 2 sensitive article likening Mitt Romney's allegiance to the GOP to the loyalty of a golden retriever. How many times can Romney "turn the other cheek" and come back smiling? Romney's poise, charm, energy, levelheadedness, organizational abilities and experience qualify him in every way to hold the office for which he is now supporting John McCain. We seldom see, especially in the muddy waters of politics, someone who displays such unrequited loyalty and sterling character.
