Obama is the extremist

Re "Remember those who flirted with default (Editorial, Oct. 20): You urge readers to remember our members of Congress who voted against raising the debt ceiling, labeling them "extremists."

I don't recall your labeling Barack Obama an "extremist" when he similarly voted against raising the debt limit in 2006 over policy differences with the Republican then the White House. The only thing more dispiriting than the recent bipartisan debacle in Washington is a local newspaper too partisan too incurious to look beyond the cover page of an issue.
