I think A.S. was always left on the social side but did indeed try to deal with the government employees and unions.
I think ones those props went down to defeat and crushed his power, he felt he had to move left.
I think a lack of vote of conservative nature caused those props to go down to defeat.
Sure, again go for recall on Arnold if they don’t cut spending and instead raise taxes, but I felt I have to be real here and say the lack of vote is what sent the man more to the left. To his credit, he did stick to his word and did indeed try to blow up the boxes of government when he tried to take on unions and government employees.
We could have done better on the special election that MAYBE would have even avoided what is happening in the state today.
could have .. should have..
water over the dam
he should have never entered the Recall race... and once he got in, he shot himself in the foot
a golden opportunity was lost, no squandered, likely never to seen again.
