Letters to George
|Yesterday (see below), I posted that the letter Gov. Schwarzenegger sent to President Bush about stem cells was one sign of how difficult it will be for Angelides to tie the two together.|
Well, today, Team Angelides fired back. In a e-mail titled "Letters to George," they ripped into the letters a political theatre, saying "what Schwarzenegger's letters to George really show is just how weak Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is."
Nearly every day, the "action" Governor seems to send a letter to the White House in lame attempts to distance himself from the President he campaigned for in Ohio and spoke so highly of at the Republican convention. Although you'd never know it, this is the same Governor that said of George Bush on "Hannity & Colmes," "I've seen firsthand of the effectiveness that we have, the leadership that he has provided over the last few years..He's a terrific leader ... I think he's doing a terrific job." The same governor who told Fox News (On The Record With Greta Van Susteren, October 16, 2003), “I can tell you one thing, that there is no greater ally that this Golden State has in Washington than our president, my dear friend, President George W. Bush.”
The letter ends: "Fighting for California means more than writing letters to the President that Schwarzenegger helped send back to the Oval Office. Governor, you can run from George Bush, but you can't hide."
