Ehrlich and the GOP need a reality check

Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has fallen into the trap of the majority of his Republican brethren: They just can't get over the fact that the majority in this country has moved beyond the Republican agenda of lower taxes for the wealthy, health care tied to employment and deporting illegal immigrants ("What if? Life under President Romney," Jan. 27).

His column is pure wishful thinking. This country will be far better served when Republicans wake-up to reality and start engaging in productive dialogue instead of pushing a recalcitrant agenda that doesn't serve anyone except the privileged few.
