I read the letter to the editor from George Mathews (May 9) and just want to say that I disagree. Perhaps Mathews watches too much of his news on the Fox network.

Mathews wrote that the U.S. is in debt, but he was wrong about why.

President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are the reason — they started two wars by lying to the people. Cheney made millions of dollars in the war. They started it for the oil.

I hope Gov. Paul LePage is just a one-term governor. He vetoes everything. The only thing he is for is the rich. He is against unions, raising the minimum wage and creating jobs.

I am a proud Democrat and glad to have voted for Barack Obama.
