Re "Hatch for Senate: Give Utah's lion one more term" (Our View, Sept. 23):
Your endorsement of Sen. Orrin Hatch for re-election to the United States Senate is laughable. You call Hatch a "lion of the Senate". The lion symbolizes strength, courage, a willingness to not back down.
When it comes to tea party activists, Hatch has been a pussycat of the Senate. He spent the past two years distancing himself from any piece of progressive legislation or policy that he supported before the tea party came out against them.
