-- Guns: She said she supports Second Amendment rights, but that an assault weapon ban and handgun restrictions are "probably the right thing in California." She does not own a gun.

A “dumb broad” on the 2nd.

She has no clue what the 2nd Amendment means.

Hopefully the Repubs in Cali. will dump her.

The perfect RINO candidate for The Land of Fruits and Nuts. Out here in Flyover Country, we call them 'Democrats'.

I'm sorry. Some Democrats in rural districts still call her ilk 'Marxists'. Perception is a funny thing.

She “loves” Van Jones, and isn’t against illegal immigration.

I think she’s even to the left of the RINOs.

Let the dems ride Cali into the crapper and take all the blame (as they should). Then Republicans, real Republicans, can take over.

For any Republican to run in this environment is shear stupidity. Let Gov. Moonbeam take it and then completely run California into the ground together with his Democrat brethren running the CA House and Senate. I think that’s the ONLY way to kick them all out.

Meg is udoubtably a fine person, but she’s out of her league when it comes to handling the California Democratic party.

Look for example, how California Democrats emasculated Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I sure hope so. Last time I checked (VNEV) an assault weapon had select fife from SEMI to AUTO. She thinks ugly black guns should be banned because they look scarey. My 30-06 Remington 742 looks nicer though. Who cares if it’s more powerful than an AK or AR and shoots just as fast and with an extended mag... WOW!

Meg Whitman doesn't own a gun, and Mitt Romney doesn't own a gun, although in 2007 he was called on it when he claimed that he did and that he was a "lifetime hunter" (neither was true), after suddenly buying a lifetime membership in the NRA and campaigning on being a "proud" NRA member.

Yuck-

PLEASE, those in California without a job, with poor schools, crappy roads, and high crime, PLEASE stay in California and don't contaminate the great state of Texas with your dysfunctional Utopian perversions.

As CA tanks we are seeing more of them move to TX, and that's bad! Though they are generally educated and technical folks (DFW, Austin are major high tech centers) they also bring with them their idea's......... and that’ll Fu$# up this state too.

I’m glad we can carry concealed in the national parks again. I always carry openly when in the national forest. Prospectors usually have gold with them and I often do. There are bandits living in box canyons that would kill you for an ounce of gold. Walk into a 10 million dollar pot grow and you’ll get shot. Stumble onto a meth lab and die. That’s only the 2 legged critters. Kneeling down along side a stream to pan and you look like prey to a mountian lion. There are rattlers, wild pigs and black bear that need food every once and a while too.

My 44 Magnum is always with me in the woods.

Need to check to be sure, but believe I heard that McClintock was supporting Poizner. If so, that’s good enough for me.

What exactly is a GOP over there in Cali? Um...

The candidate who appeals to shivering coward Republicans as I have been and many still remain who will vote anything pasted with an "R" with the valiant cry, "But he'll/she'll be better than [insert name of really impossibly liberal communist socialist Democrat opponent here]." And then when the next GOP incarnation turns out even more liberal, they wring their hands in despair.

Pray that Ca isn't starting a trend. Pray that the trend will be turned back here.

Ahhhh just who’s fault is it when the GOP puts a RINO like McCain on the ballot? If (R)-———— is all we have and a write-in stands zero chance... why even vote then?

Blame the GOP!

What you see are your own homegrown idiots moving back home since they spoiled the nest here.

I’m a transplant to CA and have decided that I’ll make my stand here. I’ll not come running to where I’ll have some rube (who probably isn’t a native of that state anyway) accuse me of being a subversive because I lived in CA.

Take care of your own, we have enough problems here without your “constructive” input to a crapload of problems we are trying to work through.

But thanks anyway.

I heard that as well. Although, I suspect that Poizner isn’t going to be much better than Whitman.

I’m still waiting for him to pony up about a part time legislature in Sacramento.

California is beyond saving. We would be better off letting Moonbeam finishing off the state than electing this RINO.

California under Arnold is in worse shape than Michigan under Granholm (even with the auto industry in the dumper).

We will approach the day when the socialist government of the US taxes prosperous Texas to pay for bankrupt California. Intolerable. Either Texas will leave the Union or the US will jettison California, giving it to Mexico. As a Californian that makes me nervous.

I’m a 5th generation Cal native. I left, after 40 years of it; I won’t go back, except for family funerals. Knight; Brown I & II, et al...excepting the “Reagan Respite”...was just going from bad to worse. Now it looks like it’s Brown II redux vs Mad Meg; you’re welcome to it.

I let the locals run things here without my “help”...but is is an overwhelmingly Conservative area anyway.
