I don't want to say "I told you so" but I did state that I was worried this would happen. God help California.

Saundra.. all the hand wringing is unseemly. Most of the fiscal matters are being headed up by Conservatives, and that's what's most important. No matter what, it's going to be better than what we had before. At least wait until he actually DOES something.

I know. It's so horrible that a governor would choose a senior advisor whom he has known for a long time and apparently trusts, when he could have picked someone whom he knows little about. That would have been better for California, no doubt about that.

She is an "advisor." That means she can not do SQUAT except nag in Ahhnold's ear. If one were a Calguv and had to appoint a token liberal to some position, this would be it.

Make that SENIOR advisor. That means she'll have more than his ear. (Hint: And whose ear does Teddy Kennedy have?)

We're going to trade you in for Terry McAuliffe. He has been very effective for the GOP and although he bad-mouths us, at least he doesn't whine.

And Sen. Pat Roberts is a "good friend" of Sen. John D. Rockefeller. I'd be more worried about that.

If you are going to get hyper about every appointment the man makes (actually, the other three he made that you gloss over look ok), then you are in for a lot of grief. If Schwarzenegger only appointed rock-ribbed conservatives, he would get nothing done with the legislature at all. The Democrat pols who actually run the state aren't (all) stupid, they are looking for some signs of moderation, and Arnold is giving them that in these little driblets.

Still trying to explain away the new Republican party as conservative I see.

SD, I agree with you, although many Republicans could care less. A few years ago, I thought the first split was going to be on the left. Heck at this rate it could come from the Republican side a lot quicker

So friggin what, she's a FRIEND of Ted Kennedy's? Ted Kennedy shouldn't have any friends? I think you're being a little touchy about this. I am willing to give AS the benefit of the doubt until he does something that proves me wrong. So far, he's done nothing that's been different than what he said he'd do. Conservative on fiscal matters, mod to liberal on social issues. I know the social issues scare you, but like I said, it's better than the crazy lunatic we're getting rid of.

News Flash: [sarcasm]Governor-elect Schwarzenegger is married to Maria Shriver, Maria Shriver is related to Senator Ted Kennedy. Maria Shriver had the audcity to campagin for her husband Arnold Schwarenegger. In addition she showed up at the victory party, along with other Kennedy relatives as well as registered democrats that voted for Governor-elect Schwarzenegger. Women, Actors and Democrats voting for Arnold, that should tell us something...[/sarcasm}

You Arnold-haters look ridiculous. He appoints Stephen Moore to his economic team, one of the most influential conservatives in the fiscal arena, and you, Saundra, say "no comment."

But, when he appoints somebody he's known for twenty-five years to his team in a nothing job, you scream like a banshee.

As I said, ridiculous.

Saundra, Arnold is smart enough to know that Teddy's politics are a thing of the past. Seems he's playing this very wisely. He needs to get things done and he's throwing everyone a bone. There's nothing wrong with that. The majority of people in the state are moderates, they're not Conservatives.

"all the hand wringing is unseemly. Most of the fiscal matters are being headed up by Conservatives, and that's what's most important. No matter what, it's going to be better than what we had before. At least wait until he actually DOES something" Does that mean that we shouldn't be concerned about the TWENTY BILLION DOLLAR BOND ISSUE promoted by Arnold and your so called "fiscal conservatives"...give me a friggin break here! more spending and spending and spending...like we said during the campaign...ya can't be a fiscal conservative and a social liberal at the same time, folks...ya gotta pay the band sooner or later...and a bond issue is just borrowing now and having to pay a ton more later!!!

It apparent from this appointment that Arnold has no intention of relaxing environmental controls on industry and power suppliers.

Without a business environment that encourages new businesses to move to California, it is unlikely that California will share in the improving economy.

You're taking politics way too seriously.

Ridiculous, Saundra. You look and sound ridiculous.

Arnold is not even sworn in yet, so it's too early to panic, and being afraid doesn't accomplish anything. Besides, the GOP in California has been losing ground in recent years. Let's see how Arnold does as governor.

From what I read in the article, this is no big cause for alarm. The enviro association bothers me, but that is only the status quo out her. Enviros get everything they want anyhow. She can not make things any worse.
