Hanabusa’s anti-bombing stance is applauded

Mahalo to Rep. Colleen Hanabusa for quickly speaking out against bombing Syria (The Maui News, Aug. 27). Sen. Brian Schatz and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard both fumbled their words about the topic.

Perhaps Hanabusa’s ability to respond quickly and intelligently to such an important issue is reason to vote her into whatever office she seeks. I know she has presently won my vote because of this.

I just hope she does not flip-flop like the president has done when surrounded by the people in Washington, D.C., and the relentless press coverage of the need to do something. Mahalo, Colleen Hanabusa.
