Robert P. Hawkins: GOP war mongers

Regarding your March 11 editorial “An outrage”: I am shocked, ashamed and frankly embarrassed that my own senators were among the Republicans interfering in the work of our state department, our president and a group of our allies attempting to stop Iran’s movement toward nuclear weapons through negotiation.

Apparently the 47 Republican senators would prefer war to negotiation. They certainly are undermining our State Department and our president and not very interested in responsible governance. They seem more interested in expressing their partisanship and, in part, their resentment that a black man managed to get elected to the presidency twice.

Shame on all 47 of them!

Robert P. Hawkins
