Legislative liberals expect an open, compassionate Jerry Brown
SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 11/5/10 | Susan Ferriss

Posted on 11/05/2010 4:09:09 PM PDT by SmithL

Los Angeles Democrat and Assemblyman Kevin de León, who played a key role in galvanizing Latino voters for Jerry Brown, said this week he's expecting the new governor to be "honest, transparent with all of us. And I expect him to be compassionate."

"On election night, the Latinos in California provided a huge lift to Jerry Brown," said de León, who's pictured at right. "And now Latinos expect him to help get California back to work. Latinos have been disproportionately hit by the recession."

Then there's an estimated $12 billion to $15 billion budget deficit -- and what to do if Democratic legislators want to avoid making deeper cuts to social services and laying off legions of state workers.

De León will be switching over to the state Senate on Dec. 6 after being elected Tuesday to the upper house. He participated in a post-election conference call Thursday with Senate Democrats, he said, and they discussed the sobering fiscal reality California faces. He's hoping Brown takes an "exhaustive approach" to reviewing government spending and uses his knowledge of how bureaucracies work to come up with plans.

"People regardless of ideology want an efficient government," de León said.

Sen. Gil Cedillo, a Los Angeles Democrat who was elected to de León's Assembly seat, also worked on the push to turn out Latino voters for Brown.

He said he doesn't think Latino voters or public-worker unions that launched a massive get-out-the-Latino-vote effort have illusions that Brown "is a savior."

It also means no punishment for sanctuary cities and more freebies for illegals.

The Golden State has turned brown. The best we can hope for is a speedy decline and re-establishment of rational thought.

Los Angeles Democrat and Assemblyman Kevin de León...said this week he's expecting the new governor to be "honest, transparent with all of us. And I expect him to be compassionate."

Oh, come on. When was the last time anyone saw a compassionate liberal?

He's hoping Brown takes an "exhaustive approach" to reviewing government spending and uses his knowledge of how bureaucracies work to come up with plans.

Um, is this guy at all aware of history? Brown was the first in a long line of liberal politicians who put CA on this spending spree without regard for the taxpayers who must fund it. Expecting him to review spending and come up with plans is like giving an alcoholic the keys to your bar while you're on vacation and asking him to check on it for you.

“California Uber Alles”

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president...

Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!

[Chorus:]
California Uber Alles
California Uber Alles
Uber Alles California
Uber Alles California

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face

Close your eyes, can’t happen here
Big Bro’ on white horse is near
The hippies won’t come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay!

[Chorus]

Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It’s the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp
You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower
For your clothes here’s a pretty flower.

DIE on organic poison gas
Serpent’s egg’s already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown

He'll only raise taxes on the "rich" -- and rich libs won't care. Rich conservatives will probably flee the state, taking their business and jobs with them.

Yeah, man, he’s got all those mega rich hollywood actors who are gilt ridden because they are so rich. Take it all from them tax them 95% and then raise it to 98% next year - they will love it. They feed on self-hate so sock-it-to them!

When will the lib morons in CA learn that Brown's menu of mush doesn't translate to steak on the dinner table? Next year, they will be lucky to get mush.--Oh! but then, they will have that huggy, feely sort of auro radiated by moonbeam.

The Golden State has turned brown.

I know the title "New Mexico" is already taken, so I can't refer to California as the "New Mexico".

But, is "Nuevo Mejico" taken?

Alternately, how about "Mexico the 2nd"?.

Brown is the best governor union money can buy. Look to see higher taxes to pay off the fat cat unions and pensioner/world travelers. As business falters and people move east out of the state, The Obama Commune will squander for to “bail out” the western people’s republic of Lala land. Any bail outs will go to keep the status quo rather than fix things.

If you want a picture of the future of California under Jerry Brown, imagine a Birkenstock stamping on a human face — forever.
