Substance over eloquence

Dear Editor:In regards to the letter by Elsa Van Leuven "Political Leaders," 7/17/10), don't blame me. I voted for McCain. I also warned anybody who would listen that I was better qualified than Sen. Obama to be president of the U.S. (Letters to the Editor, 6/13/08). Regretfully, my comments were not heeded. I have done a non-scientific survey among fellow Iranians, Cubans, Argentinean, Ecuadorians and Philippine immigrants among others and we all agree that it is very difficult for U.S.-born citizens to realize the damage that a silver-tongued demagogue can do to a country because they have never seen it before. Now that they have let's hope they vote for substance rather than eloquence in the next election. - Jorge Montero, Downey
