    Liberal Democrat On His Way to Being Elected California Gov

    I thought this was supposed to be another big-time year of the angry white male like 1994 when republicans swept into power and America rejects liberalism. Maybe not.


    Poll: Jerry Brown has double-digit lead over Meg Whitman

    Democrat Jerry Brown has opened a double-digit lead over Republican Meg Whitman in the governor's race, according to a new Los Angeles Times/USC poll.

    Brown was leading Whitman 52 percent to 39 percent among likely voters, expanding his lead particularly among women and Latino voters, according to the poll.

    Brown, campaigning this morning at several churches in south Los Angeles, said after one stop that he is "cautiously optimistic" about his chances in November. He was campaigning with the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. Brown struck a populist tone, saying California is a wealthy state but that officials must "spread it out," not "suck it all up to the top."

    He criticized Whitman for her scant voting record and called on congregants to cast ballots Nov. 2.

    Whitman was campaigning yesterday in the Los Angeles area. She had no scheduled public events today.

    That's why California is teetering on bankruptcy and illegal aliens.

    Really? You're using California to frame this argument? The state that elects Nancy Pelosi? Um, yeah, ok.

    BTW, isn't Brown a white male?

    Well, based on one isolated data point, I'm convinced

    I see Governor Moonbeam is pretty flexible on that whole "Separation of Church and State" thing.

    I'm guessing he never found the time to criticize Obama for his scant voting record.

    Maybe if Whitman spends another quarter of a billion dollars campaigning, she might win?

    It kills you that the local, state and federal gov't can't outsource and treat their employees like sh*t.

    What is the point of this thread? Since when did anything in California become a litmus test for the pulse of the country? A liberal may be elected governor in the land of Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein and Waxman? Shocking, stop the presses.

    No...but it boggles my mind that simple math seems to NOT be relevant with public employee unions.

    Any other industry would have been bankrupt decades ago. This is NOT about treatment of employees...more so it is about the thousands of retired civil servants with annual guaranteed pensions of $100,000 a year.

    Consider the original poster. We might as well be responding to someone insisting that the moon landing was faked.

    Oh goddammit. Will you guys make up your minds?!? Are conspiracy theories cool or not now??

    I thought we were down with them since that Muslim Sleep Agent won the election.





    Don't drink the tap water. They put stuff in it to make you vote Democrat. But you didn't hear that from me...

    You do realized that a big chunk of those state workers are state and local police officers who get paid starting salaries in excess of $75K and make pensions that could support a family of 50 in India. Reaganites like you have this myth that all government workers are do-nothing bureacrats who sit behind desks and make six figures when in reality most of them are not.

    I'm all for law enforcement and giving cops fair compensation but alot of them are insanely overpaid. Same is happening here in NJ. Christie is busy trying to blame teachers' for bankrupting the state meanwhile cops in suburban towns make over $100K a year plus benefits to shoot squirrels.
