What's wrong with today's GOP?

Former Gov. Ehrlich's column illustrates clearly what is wrong with today's GOP ("No, Mr. President, nobody else 'made that happen,'" July 23).

Mr. Ehrlich rightly acknowledges that "no person achieves success in a given field or endeavor without some help from the greater society." But then he promotes the old Horatio Alger myth, contradicting his earlier acknowledgment.

Ideology trumps facts. When the Theodore McKeldin and Mac Matthias Republicans return, I'll be glad to vote for them. Until then, this lifelong Republican will be voting for Democrats only.
