Pete Wilson

How apropos that Gov. Pete Wilson announced his candidacy at the Statue of Liberty (Aug. 29). Could it be any more obvious from where he thinks the immigrants should come? As it’s the “right,” “American” and “legal” way of immigration that concerns him, perhaps it’s time to address the issue of the abrogated Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

* Why did Wilson go all the way to stand in front of the Statue of Liberty? There is a miniature of the Statue of Liberty in El Monte that more closely matches the smallness of the governor, who is growing continually more embarrassing as the elections grow near.

* I voted for Wilson, as I have in the past, unable to bring myself to choose a Democrat. It is no longer possible to be silent as he attempts to capture the Republican nomination for President. His flip-flops on political expediencies and blatant hypocrisy on affirmative action have been too much even for a conservative.

I don’t seriously believe Wilson can win the presidency, but it appears his actual goal is the vice presidency in 1996, inasmuch as he could not run against an incumbent Republican in the next presidential election. To allow him even the potential power of the vice presidency next year would indeed be a tragedy for the United States.

* Herbert Hoover gave us the Depression, Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace and Ronald Reagan gave us the biggest debt in the nation’s history. I wonder what Wilson has in store for the nation, should he be the fourth President from our state.
