“If a politician tries to take credit for job growth, don't believe it."
|That sentence was just sent out by the Phil Angelides campaign. It was said by Gov. Schwarzenegger in last year's state of the state address. |
Here's the full release:
“If a politician tries to take credit for job growth, don't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen, I did not create this record number of jobs.”
Who said it? None other than California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in his January 5, 2005 State of the State address (click here to read the text of the speech on the Governor’s own website).
Of course, Schwarzenegger’s name wasn’t on the ballot in 2005. But Election Year Schwarzenegger seems to have changed his tune. Now, his new ad and weekly radio address both boast about “500,000 new jobs.”
It’s all part of Election Year Schwarzenegger’s attempt to cover up his record of debt and diminished opportunity. But Californians won’t forget that easily. They won’t forget the Governor’s relentless attacks on teachers, nurses, firefighters, students and working families. Try as he might, Election Year Schwarzenegger won’t be able to escape his own past.
