I saw Arno on TV several years ago saying that being a democrat is a sickness.

That was funny then. Now that it is about being a TRUE REPUBLICAN governor of a huge state like Calif., it isn't funny. Arno = RINO.

I campaigned for Bill Simon while I lived in LA last year. I think Tom McClintock is actually the BEST candidate at this time. I have heard Tom talking about what he would DO if he were gov.

I admire him campaigning for GHWBush when the media/liberal Hollyweirdos were saying the nastiest stuff and being really vicious. And obviously Arnie has identified himself as a Republican in a Demonrat family. Just wish he'd show where exactly he is Republican. The appointment of Warren Buffet really amazed me and brings into serious question if there is anything Arnie shares with Republican ideals? To chose a radical lefty like Buffet is really bad judgment as well as what is with Rob Lowe being involved?? Unbelievable.

Arnold = Only possible winner of the race for Governor of CA.

I guess you are all for Bustamonte then if you are so stubborn as to sabotage the only chance Republicans have.

Look into how things are gained through baby steps and not by ONLY a fire-breathing conservative.

Think about it. Arnold is a very pro-business successful person with huge crossover. The rest of the pack are mere spoilers looking to the future for their spotlight.

Arnold would be much better than any from the Democrat side.

Too bad you want to see the only chance go down in flames. This is what is wrong with our side in California.

I've heard Tom talking about what he would do also.
He was on Foxnews and he laid out how he could save the state billions in the first five minutes.

That link was over before it began. He can't win and all the Republicans in leadership have said as much and that he is only doing this for his future.
It is in his interest to sabotage this race by drawing votes from Arnold so he can lose again himself the next election.

McClintock went from interesting to an empty suit who is only interested in his career.

He is unelectable and has the cross-over appeal of a fruit rat.

He and Simon have lost me for good with them blowing the Governor's race like this.

The only chance we ever had was Arnold.

OK Guy

Let's looks at a few things here before you go beating your gums again.

1. There is still a very long way to go before anyone goes to the polls, and things will change. They always do.
2.The more press Arnorld gets the more I get the feeling that he's NOT what's best for our state. That may change but as of now have have not.
3.If you fear Cruz Big-chest being gov. more than anything in the world then your no better than an a liberal.
4. I'll vote for the person whos plan I think has the best chance to keep this state alive. Truth be know, it's me however I'm not running.

In closing, Vote for whom ever you like, I just hope that you have the balls to vote for the best person for the job. Voting for someone because he's the best of two evils is what has got us in the situation were in now.

No, Arnold doesn't HAVE to win. And he sure won't win as long as people hold out for someone lots more conservative--a candidate with little money and little name recognition, but he'd do GREAT things for CA if elected governor. Woopee doo. That's a heck of a big 'if'.

I have an idea: I'm really conservative, too! I'd do GREAT things for California if elected governor. Not many people outside my immediate circle of friends and business acquaintances know my name or what I stand for. And I don't have a multimillion dollar budget for campaigning. But don't let that put you off. Grassroots democracy, that's what it's all about! yeah! If everyone just gets out and starts campaigning for me, we can beat that Arnie-RINO and put a real conservative in office! Yes! We can! Don't give up and throw in the towel and resign yourself to voting for Arnie when you can have me, a real conservative, representing you. We'll never get conservatism advanced as long as you settle for RINOs. So, everyone get out right now, start raising money so i can blast the TV and radio ads, go knocking door to door for me. We can do it! All it takes is for Arnie and Simon to drop out and put their support behind me. (/sarcasm)

Look, if this was a head's up race between McClintock and Bustamonte in this kind of race ( where only motivated voters will show up), McClintock would *win*.

So maybe Arnold and Bill Simon should both withdraw and endorse McClintock.

"Too bad you want to see the only chance go down in flames. This is what is wrong with our side in California."

Is the 'only chance' a RINO? Wasnt that tried with Matt Fong? With Huffington? With that Campbell fellow? ... and where are they now?

<< It is ashame how many want to have a Democrat instead of Arnold. Why they love to eat their own is unanswerable to me. <<

The ONLY people who specifically WANT to put a Democrat in the Governor's mansion is Arinold supporters. It's two-for-one, blue plate special. Elect Arnold and she WILL be in there by default. GURANTEED. Here's the LIFELONG liberal Democrat that YOU are pushing for:


"The responciblity for...the death of your daughter is squarely at the feet of the Reagan Administration. [Aren't] they responsible for that?"
-- To AIDS activist Elizabeth Glaser during 1992 GOP convention.

You Arinold Kool-aid drinkres can keep pretending vote for an conservative like Simon and McClinlock will MAGICALLY put a (D) in the mansion win, but those darn facts will keep showing that YOU'RE the ones beating down the door to ENSURE a D gets in. Schwarzekennedy RINO-RAT is certainly a "sickness", and voting conservative is the cure!

BTW, were you the same guy who INSISTED that voting for Keyes would "elect McCain"? Cuz I voted for Keyes, he did quite well in my state, and I havne't heard from "President McCain" lately.

How silly of me. Why didn't I see it earlier? Let's see, more government intrusion? Check. Less capitalism, more government control over business? Check. More government programs, gleefully pushed for by a 'conservative' administration? Check. You know, you're right. It's called incrementalism and the only difference is that Republicans don't take away as quickly as Democrats.

It's already a horror BB. The facts you are not dealing with are that we are outnumbered by Democrat voters even though we have the largest number of Republicans in the nation.
Our two 100% guaranteed losers Simon and McClintock can only sabotage Arnold who is pro-business, pro-187 and pro prop 13 despite articles that suggest otherwise.

It would be an interesting strategy if Arnold has set him self up as Bustamonte's target, let him whale on him for a while, spend tons of money only to withdraw about two-three weeks before the election.

I realize it's probably a lost cause and you will get Arnold out there. What I'm worried about is 4,6,even 8 years from now. The RNC will see that he won and start putting Republicans like that around the nation. We've already got one transplanted Republican here in NC for our Senator that's not a conservative (foisted upon us by the RNC). I'm just worried what happens to the majority of conservatives nationwide when the RNC sees that this is a winning strategy out there

BB it is actually more probable that we will get Bustamante the wat Republicans are eating Arnold.

I would have nothing against a McClintock some time in the future. I think he is good. The problem is he has NO cross-over appeal.

I think since we are in a highly Democrat territory here in CA, we have to take our victories where we can.

Arnold is good for being pro-business, pro-187 and is beholden to nobody.

The most important part is he is electable and very pro-business.

I really think McClintock and Simon could drag Arnold down with their own drowning boats.

Our state needs so much change it isn't funny, it is sad.

Being a Democrat is a sickness, but rather than seeking a cure, the Democrats, like the homosexuals, prefer to lobby to have their sickness defined as just a different kind of healthy.

Congrats on first lady Maria Shiver (D). Kathleen Kennedy Townsend sends thanks for restoring the Kennedy Democrats to power. Hope you enjoy lots of taxpayer funded abortions and higher taxes "for the children" under a "Republican" governor.

BTW, we're taking Reagan back since California Republicans would rather salute the Land of Riordan. There's no way in hell Dutch would hang around if he knew what currently passes for a "Republican" there. Oh, but you can HAVE George Ryan, he has an "R" to his name so you sellouts should be perfectly happy with him and the rest of the nations RINOs. Take Pataki and Sunquist too. WE don't want them, but I'm sure you'll take ANYONE with an "R" next to their name. Maybe he can take all you murderers off death row and help elect MORE Democrats. Heck, you'll already take one who's married to corrupt Democrats. It doesn't matter, he has an "R" to his name. That's all that matters.

Ah Tkathy...looks like the California Republicans are going to shoot themselves in the foot again. When Gov Bustamante is raising our taxes and letting all the Mexicans into our state, at least the Conservatives can say that there isn't a RINO as Governor. Idiots.

I'd like Simon to drop out. McClintock should stay in the race as a backup candidate for Arnold.

Since Arnold is the current one to beat, we can count on Davis to smear him big time. I'm backing McClintock until I see Arnold clearly leading the polls - - - then I WILL switch my vote to Arnold.

The really sad part about Arnold being elected is that any governor who does well in California has presidential potential, but Arnold would be excluded from entering the presidential race because he was not born in the USA.

Arnold never said he was ashamed of the republicans for impeaching Clinton. He just said he was ashamed of the GOP during that time period, as was I, for not going through with the Senate impeachment.

Actually, it is because we WOULDN'T vote for "the lesser of two evils that could win" that caused Gray Davis to win in 2002.

You are right. The upside of all of this RINO business is that it comes from people who have never been involved in a campaign, will not vote in the California recall, and are accustomed to dropping heavy objects on their feet to prove to their peers that they can take the pain. Unlike Beavis and Butthead, none of them is likely to become an Austin Powers.
