SACRAMENTO -- After five months of failing to sway Democrats to his "year of reform," Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has directed his political staff to prepare for a special-election campaign that would denigrate the California Legislature and its union benefactors.
Escalating the governor's fight, chief political consultant Mike Murphy said Monday that Schwarzenegger may endorse an initiative that could hobble the money-raising machine of public employee unions. Murphy said the governor has asked him to conduct polling and voter focus groups on a so-called paycheck protection initiative.
"Arnold has not touched the Legislature with a feather yet compared to what the real campaign will be," said Murphy, one of the governor's closest advisers. "It's a referendum on the governor versus the Legislature, and he will win."

The donkeys wanted nuclear war...looks like they're going to get one from sea to shining sea!
This is upside -- let's hope the Terminator does well. All eyes are on him -- his legacy is in the making...
Check this out...and buckle your seatbelt.
Things are about to get verrrrry interesting.
Dream on chumps. When push comes to shove, the people will vote to lighten the load, and the Democrats are going to be tossed overboard.
I'd let the legacy crap rest, just get the damn job done and done right.
WOW.....call him the NUCLEATOR......sounds like the Dems have underestimated his FISCAL side......
Wow, could it be the Republicans are going to be emboldened by their meager moves toward GROWING A SET! and actually start begaving as if they had a majority in this country?! The mind boggles!
The c'Rats poll numbers are about as low as whale poop on the bottom of the ocean.
Let 'em spend millions propping up their regime built on loose sand and hope to hell some folks seriously see that we can't get ahead by continuing to let a bunch of behinds run this state into the poor house.
I'm keeping my powder dry UNTIL I see the pubs REALLY go nuke! TALK is cheap and spitballs are a dime a dozen!
It's almost dumbfounding, isn't it?!
Frist tells Dingy Harry to pound sand and the gov pulls out the big guns on his donkey legislature and their union minions.
What next? Might the Milwaukee DA be about to indict Mayor Barrett for election fraud? (In my dreams!)
just get the damn job done and done right.
Let us hope so -- I sit in great anticipation.
The budget battle will be the c'Rats undoing.
They just can't stop the spending.. It's an addiction.
The Gub needs to get a grip as well or all will be for nought.
The Governator's toast.
Oh, and I forgot to include Galloway's appearance tomorrow before Norm Coleman's committee. (If he really shows)
THAT's going to be fun to watch!
I've heard that the unions have already spent about 200 million dollars fighting against Arnold. I can't remember what the context was though. If true, too bad. They can spend a billion, and they'll still lose.
Let's not get crazy here. Next thing you'll be expecting the government to protect the borders. They'll be coming for you with a net then!
Norm Coleman has really impressed me. He seems to have been out the day they were passing around the salt peter.
So what else is he going to do besides deny accepting the "Gifts" from Saddam!!? No one is going to believe him!
