He is welcome to prove his ignorance.. He needs to stay on the sidelines where he can pretend to know it all.

Let him. Bet he finds it’s not as easy as being didactic from the sidelines. He can put up or shut up.

Well, Gavin Newsom, currently lieutenant governor, will probably run for governor in 2018.

Clooney can bring his liberalism to the ballot, but, there are other Calif. politicos who will be running too.

I don’t think Clooney could even get the Democratic nomination for governor. Almost half the population of the state is Latino and since liberals are all about racial identity in picking their candidates I don’t think a rich white man is what they’re looking for.

Why not? Look at what they elected and re elected for president. I think we are rapidly approaching the point where we need to make POTUS a ceremonial office. California governor too.

When I first saw the topic headline I sorta laughed and thought, "Ok, Georgie, bring it on." Then I realized this was CA and he could actually win.

Shudder!

Nothe last 2 elections they ran a jackass...and won. Of course, we ran a RINO so a jackass is more electable than a RINO.

Run George, Run!

The leftist idiots of California deserve you, and you deserve them.

CA voters are known for doubling down on stupidity.

I’d love to see CA driven like a jet from a high altitude straight into the ground.

It’s not like California has a lock on electing idiots to office, sometimes I think residents of other states protest a bit too much.

Nothing could be wilder than electing Barack Obama president.

And that one's on all of us.

Wow, he read my post about him on the other thread, where I said he’s a good looking one trick pony who doesn’t ever play anyone but the Suave Good Looker Who acts exactly the same in each movie, like George Clooney if he had gifted writers 24/7 feeding him lines.

And he’s getting old.

So now he is trying on a new role. Husband, probably father (he loves his looks so much, it would be a shame to deprive the world of a pint sized Georgie), and — a really fun role if you have a plane to get you out of Sacramento each evening and back into Bel Air -— Governor of a state that is running on Dem Corruption Autopilot anyway. Easy, and kinda fun.

I hope he runs and wins, and puts this naturally wonderful state, out of it’s misery, once and for all.. There is plenty of time for Freepers to get out or dug-in deep..

If he runs he’ll win.

And he couldn’t do worse than the other nimrods who have held that office.

If Minnesotans voted in an idiot that spent half of his acting life in a diaper, I could easily see Clooney run and win.

He’ll probably be elected. Is he running against Jerry? If he wants the job, he will probably win. Remember California is long gone.

If Californians voted for Schwarzenegger they will definitely vote for Clooney.

Here is a pic of the recently elected millionaire governor with billionaire Warren Buffet and trillionaire Lord Rothschild

Well, thank you Patty Murray bkopto. Nothing like being
‘dissed’ by a poster who flies the flag of the state of
Washington, a state that is a junior version of what
California has unfortunately become.

George C looney. Run the rest of the movie industry out
of the state just to be fair to the other businesses which
have already felt the tax and regulatory chokehold as
administered by Dimo legislators.

A transition from Governor Moonbeam to Looney Clooney? How appropriate! Watch the stampede out of the state by business and taxpayers then. (You a haven't seen anything yet.)

While I often go after those posters who make blanket statements that appear to refer to ALL Californians I
must admit that the first part of your post is absolutely
true and the last part of it may be, at least, partially
accurate.

Whatever state you’re from, and whatever kind of disaster happens there — hurricanes, tornados, floods, blizzards — we STILL don’t wish it on you.

Because that’s how Californians roll. We’re bigger than that. California is the greatest state in the union. And however we go, the whole country has always gone.

So you better hope we’re not done. Because if we’re done, you’re done.
