Attacks on Frelinghuysen 'Sad Commentary' on Politics

Whippany resident responds to recent 'Letter to the Editor' criticizing congressman.

To the Editor:

In response to "Veteran Questions Frelinghuysen's Voting Record" dated Sept. 28, 2012

This issue again? I am always amused that partisan opponents of our Congressman, Rodney Frelinghuysen, think they can curry favor with the voters by attacking a fellow veteran with a distinguished record of service.

Sure, anyone can take a few votes out of context in a career filled with thousands of votes. But the truth of the matter is that I know of no other veteran who thinks Mr. Frelinghuysen doesn’t care about veterans or does them any ill. In fact, talk to any of the veterans leaders in this area and they will tell you they are proud to stand alongside Frelinghuysen.

Actually, Mr. Foley’s attacks are not amusing. They are a sad commentary in the state of politics today.

That's a new one on me. I am presently a member of AMAC. At age 50 ten years ago I joined AARP for 3 years at $27 total, but didn't renew it because in 2004 AARP endorsed John Kerry which they said was based upon a questionaire sent to all of their members but I did not get one and know others who didn't either. I did get about $100 in discounts for stays at hotels and I still get them today.

Not surprised that the discounts are more important to you. Goes with the territory.
