CA: Tom McClintock Endorses Steve Poizner
FlashReport ^ | 3/5/10 | Jon Fleischman

Posted on 03/06/2010 10:20:22 AM PST by NormsRevenge

Conservative icon U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock endorsed Steve Poizner for Governor today. Since I am at the CRA Convention, and am posting via my Blackberry, I will include an excerpt from Poizner's press release...

FROM THE RELEASE:

Tom McClintock, the conservative standard-bearer in California and champion of Republican principles, today endorsed Steve Poizner for Governor. In making his endorsement, Rep. McClintock called Steve Poizner the "only conservative candidate" in the race and the only real reformer running for governor.

"I trust Steve to restore Republican principles to California government," said Rep. McClintock. "Steve Poizner is the only conservative candidate in this race and is serious about implementing real reform in Sacramento. I am convinced that Meg Whitman has nothing to offer other than Arnold Schwarzenegger's third term. That is something California cannot afford."

If he's "good enough" for Tom, he's good enough for me.

Still, I think he's a pu$$y-a$$ed dweeb for crying over the supposed "extortion" coming from the Whitman campaign.

Good enough for me.

Whitman went negative so quickly everyone’s head is spinning.

I want Tom, but he comes across so badly on camera that he isn’t viable in California.

Dang, now I’m really confused. I trust the Howard Jarvis group and Tom McClintock. Howard Jarvis is for Meg and Tom is for Poizner. ??? Whom do you believe?

Good question - what a mess.

Does Poizner want me to pay for government funded abortions? I despise Whitman for that stance.

Once again we have the following choice. We can elect Steve Poizner over Whitman and possibly lose to the Democrats (Jerry Brown) or elect Whitman and a little less likely lose to the Democrats. I think Whitman has a better chance against Brown simply because Whitman is a woman and women are a little more inclined to vote for a woman then men are to vote for men, at least in California. We will have the goofy types of women like where I work who will vote for Whitman because it would be the first woman governor of California. They ARE that frivolous. This is huge and could be decisive. Whitman just might get the vote from Democratic women

The real issue here is to keep the lunatic Jerry Brown out of the governorship. We have a fresh group of minted idiots who don't remember how terrible he was before and they are just stupid enough to vote for the lune.

The real question is how Whitman would be as governor. She would be better than Jerry Brown. She would be a little worst that Poizner. Whoever runs against Brown I will support. I'm going with Poizner against Whitman but will throw everything in against Brown. God help us.

The last thing needed in Sacramento is someone with no political experience.

There is a big difference between getting employees you pay to do what you want them to do and working with a legislature that owes you nothing. Whitman will NOT be able to solve the problem in California.

If you need more than that, just look at how Whitman screwed up ebay. Whitman is the worst possible candidate.

"A Titanium Powerseller whose incredible sales volume affords them total protection from eBay and PayPal's supposed Protection/Security policies. I approached both eBay and PayPal with detailed evidence of fraud on the part of this seller, with absolutely no results.

Don't do it. Don't support Whitman. Do your homework on Whitman and you will be upset you ever considered supporting Whitman.

Until a few weeks ago, I did not know that Steve Poizner was a Republican. My first reaction to hearing about him running in the GOP primary was “When did he switch parties?”.

I’m going to support Poizner over Whitman. But if Whitman is the nominee, then I will support her over Jerry Brown. I'm not trilled with Whitman but Jerry Brown is the worst of all possible worlds. I’m horrified at the prospect of him back in the governorship.

I don’t know anything really about either Whitman or Poizner, but did a quick search, and here is what I found about Poizner:

“He is a pro-choice Republican who has been able to reach out to the party’s conservative base.

GOP strategist Allan Hoffenblum believes that Poizner lost the party’s centrist graybeards by moving too far to the right in his bid for the top. When Poizner ran for state Assembly in 2004 and lost, he styled himself as “a frustrated moderate Republican,” who would not say if he voted for George W. Bush in 2000. In his run for governor, however, Poizner courted the sort of Republicans who grouse that Bush wasn’t conservative enough.

Poizner’s transition to the gung-ho side of the GOP, Hoffenblum noted, makes insiders wonder, “Is he another Mitt Romney?”

Tom is a good man and Steve is also. I know there are plenty who say Steve can’t win. Well that will be true if you don’t do your part. If I were Steve I’d be running against Big Government Democrats and Republicans.

And a little more research, admittedly not exhaustive:

“Q. Is Poizner dust because he’s so far behind in the polls?

A. His pollster has left him, Republicans increasingly are calling for him to quit and fundraising is slow. But he’s still sitting on $17 million, mostly from his own pocket. If he can spend it effectively - his aides say he’ll start when voters are listening - he could cut into Whitman’s lead.

Poizner could also benefit from those Democratic anti-Meg ads you’ve been hearing. Still, while there’s some precedent for big comebacks, it will take a herculean effort and lots of luck.

Q. Are Whitman and Poizner as conservative as they claim? Is Brown really a centrist?

A. You be the judge: Both Republicans gave money to Democrats before getting serious about statewide politics. Whitman’s foundation also gave $300,000 to an environmental group whose aims she now opposes. Meanwhile, Poizner talked up his pro-choice creds when he ran for Assembly in a Democratic district in 2004. And he supported a measure to lower the threshold for school taxes - anathema to no-tax conservatives.

Meanwhile, Brown is talking the talk, coming down on tax hikes and even cultivating GOP donors. But his agenda as attorney general has been progressive. Fifteen years ago, on Berkeley radio, he could be heard railing against big corporations. And Republicans are sure to remind everyone that this is the guy who put death penalty foe Rose Bird on the state Supreme Court.”

As I’ve stated I’m not trilled with Whitman. But I know what a lune Jerry Brown is. There’s NO question about that. What makes you think Brown would be better than Whitman? Give me something here to contemplate. What facts do you have to back this up. I’m curious about your conclusions. Why is Whitman THAT bad?

Poizner supports suspending the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB32), a California emissions-cutting act that he believes helped skyrocket California unemployment to 2.5 percentage points above the national average.

Poizner wants the act suspended until four straight quarters of below 5.5 percent unemployment -- something that is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

Poizner attacked Whitman for praising ousted Green Jobs Czar Van Jones and for Whitman's charity foundation donating $300,000 to the Environmental Defense Fund, a group that helped write AB32 and supported the preservation of the endangered delta smelt at the expense of Central Valley farmers.

Poizner also asserted that he would confront California's welfare problem and illegal immigration problem by deploying the National Guard to the border if necessary. Poizner also criticized Whitman for endorsing liberal Democrat Barbara Boxer in her 2004 re-election campaign and for Whitman's not mentioning the word "conservative" or "Republican" in her television ads.

Poizner always struck me as a liberal Republican from San Mateo. In 2004, he was the only Republican that Schwarzenegger endorsed and publicly campaigned for, refusing even to support Tom McClintock as his Lt. Governor (who was responsible for Schwarzenegger winning in the first place).

Unfortunately Steve’s wife is a democrat and it is she who donated to Al Gore’s campaign.

Please people, don’t be fooled by the fake Meg Whitman who says she was just “too busy” to even vote until 2005 or so. Further, she increased ebay’s bottom line by charging the sellers more money to sell. Is that who you want running California? Someone who will charge the little guy more?

From: http://www.calcatholic.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?id=54b968f9-d257-4bd1-a332-eed93ae25e24

HH: “Now Steve Poizner, what about abortion? Are you a pro-choice guy?”

SP: “I am a pro-choice guy in one sense. I don’t believe that California is going to outlaw abortions anytime soon. Now I’m against abortions, and I want to work with people on all sides of this issue to drive the number of abortions down to zero. I do oppose late-term abortions completely. I have supported and continue to support parental notification. Those are just common sense issues here. But this state’s not ready to outlaw them tomorrow. Instead, we need much more aggressive education programs to get people to understand that abortions really are a bad thing.”

-o-

From “Really Right,” a blog of Townhall.com, hosted by William on Friday, May 29, 2009:

“I finally was able to hear Steve Poizner speak at our much delayed Reagan-Lincoln Dinner here in Sacramento County. I was most impressed by his presentation and understanding that “it’s the spending stupid” to lift a phrase from another political campaign.

“He fielded a number of questions on a variety of issues. The person next to me was anxious to ask Poizner about his position on abortion—a subject that many folks are passionate about. I suggested instead of asking him which label—prolife or prochoice—he wished to apply to himself that this person ask him specifics about issues that Poizner would likely face as governor. I suggested that he ask about taxpayer funding of abortion and conscientious objections by pharmacists and other healthcare providers to being forced to provide “morning after” pills and other such methods of abortion.

“The person seated at my table got up after Poizner had completed his Q & A period and went looking for him. This person had stated previously that he would only vote for prolife candidates. He must have been successful with what he was told by Poizner because when he returned to the table, he was filling out an endorsement card.”

Yeah... It must be nice to have so much to spend on liberal candidates. I guess there’s a reason I was surprised to learn that he’s a “Republican”.

So the bottom line is that the “conservative” candidate in the race is a donor to Algore and John F’en Kerry, and his opponent is Aaaahnold-in-drag.

I think I’ll vote for my dog.

Unfortunately Steve’s wife is a democrat and it is she who donated to Al Gore’s campaign.

Then why is his name on the donation?

I think I’ll vote for my dog.

Can your dog roll over? They’re qualified, if so. ;-)

"[Brown]...is the guy who put death penalty foe Rose Bird on the state Supreme Court.”

As I recall, this is also the guy who, as Governor Moonbeam", signed the legislation allowing public employees to unionize, a major cause of the current budgetary log jam in Sacramento.

What makes you think Brown would be better than Whitman?

I did not say Brown would be better that Whitman. I said that should Whitman be elected, anyone that supported her will end view their vote as a mistake.

Translation: Support another candidate on the GOP ticket and make sure they get elected.

Do you like more taxes? Should Whitman get into office, you can count it.

Really? Wow I'd never thought about that. But wait, the last time I checked I only have ONE vote and millions of votes will be cast. So JUST HOW do I make sure Whitman isn't the nominee?

Let me be clear. I support Poizner over Whitman but should Whitman win, I'll support her over the lunatic Jerry Brown.

Sometimes the choices are between bad and worse. In that case I usually choose bad.

You Do NOT have just one vote. Where did you get that silly idea. You have as many votes as you people you can bring to the polls to support the candidate you like. Or you can just type smarmy replies on here and continue to lose as you have been. Saying you support Poizner but will settle for Whitman is not very convincing to people thinking of voting for Whitman in the first place. Try a little commitment instead of waffling.

What about those items being played on TV saying he consorted with the dems to undercut prop 13 ..?? How could Tom support that ..??

I personally don’t like Poizner .. so even though Tom says he’s a good guy .. I’m not sure who I’ll vote for .. but I’m definitely not voting for Meg - because she thinks Van Jones is “brilliant”; a “genius”.

We surely don’t need that guy advising Meg about anything.

In the video I saw, she said Van Jones was, “Brilliant”; a “Genius”.

That ended my considering her. Can’t vote for somebody who supports Van Jones.
