In a Saturday September 16, 2006 letter to the editor from Eric Vogelvang, we find a prime example of the effects of the Bush Propaganda Machine on the mind of a resident from the City of Orange.
Angelides steps over the lineI can’t believe the latest Phil Angelides commercial. It shows Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger supporting George W. Bush, at the same time blaming the president that 130,000 troops are in Iraq, that gasoline is now 135 percent higher and that the national debt is at $3 trillion.Let’s get the facts straight: 1) Our troops were in Iraq to remove a threat, Saddam Hussein and to bring democracy. Mission accomplished. Now they’re fighting terrorists. Better there than here. 2) Gasoline is high because terrorists in Iraq are blowing up Iraqi oil fields, our oil platforms in the gulf were hit by two hurricanes and China and India are now competing for oil because of their vast economic growth. 3) Our national debt is high because we’re fighting terrorists around the world, national security costs money and funds are needed for relief and reconstruction to the states that were hit by hurricanes.Obviously, Bush is not to blame; terrorists and nature are. Angelides either can’t figure out the facts or he thinks we Californians are stupid enough to believe his commercial. Why should anyone vote for him? We’re smarter than that.Eric Vogelvang
YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d think with all the television Eric seems to watch that he would know that his so-called facts have been proven false long ago.
