It is not often that I find myself in agreement with former governor turned columnist Robert Ehrlich, or in sympathy with the four Republican contenders in this year's GOP presidential primary. However, I must support Governor Ehrlich's comment about cutting the candidates some slack on the stump ("Give pols a pass for verbal miscues," March 18).
The risks of making embarrassing verbal mistakes while campaigning in a free society with a free press put exceptional pressure on those in the limelight. Their every word is analyzed, even comments made in the heat of the moment when they have had little sleep due to being constantly "on."
Let's have a little civility and give them a break.
