It's no surprise that the liberal media and The Sun blame the government shutdown — or slim down — on Republicans, the tea party and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ("Grow up, Congress," Oct. 14).

I was dismayed by your recent, misleading article on the Republican's responsibility for the budget sequester (The GOP sequester," Feb. 22).

The FBI had previously been warned by the Russian government that the 26-year-old Boston bombing terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev was being radicalized ("Bombing suspect faces U.S. charges," April 23). The FBI interviewed him and then just opened the door and said have a good day. No further attention was given him by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Why? When he left the United States and went to Russia in 2012 for six months, there was no questioning of him by the FBI at his return. Why?

For the looming sequester cuts, the Republican and Democratic leaders sent lawmakers home armed with fact sheets about the $85 billion in across-the-board federal spending cuts due to start March 1, 2013.

It is nice to know that The Sun has received the White House talking points on the sequester and written an editorial based on them, as I expect nothing less from you ("The GOP sequester," Feb. 22). Blame can be attached to both sides.

The Sun's editorial board commits the same sin they attribute to conservatives: selective editing of Dr. Ben Carson's speech and the reaction thereto ("The Carson Monologue" Feb 12). Did not Cal Thomas, a conservative icon, come out with a demand that Dr. Carson apologize to the president? The Sun piece made no mention. To quote from the great doctor's speech: "Enough said." Did not Dr. Carson himself establish that six doctors signed the Declaration of Independence? The Sun piece made no mention. Enough said. And in spite of that strong point made by Dr. Carson, The Sun still fell into the trap, lecturing him that a Nobel Prize winning progressive economist is the type of qualification needed. These same Nobel intellectual elites awarded Mr. Obama a peace prize before he even stepped into the Oval Office to give peace a chance. Enough said.
