  • Note to Arnie-bots: If Arnold is a "Fiscal Conservative", so is Howard Dean

    The self-delusion of some star-struck conservatives here is stunning. In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they insisted Arnold was a fiscal conservative, just because he said so. This arrogant proclamation, with no evidence to back it up, was enough for these Arnold-bots. Then today, he dropped a bomb-shell and declared tax-loving, Hillary Clinton supporter Warren Buffett as his economic advisor. When faced with such repudiation of their fantasy, one expects most people to concede their mistake. But not the Arnie-bots. They still insist Arnold is a conservative, just because he has chosen a billionaire to head his...

    SAN DIEGO -- According to an exclusive 10News/Survey USA poll, if the election were held today, Gov. Gray Davis would be recalled and Arnold Schwarzenegger would be elected governor. Of 493 people statewide who say they are "certain" to vote, two-thirds say they will vote to recall Davis from office. And in the second question on the ballot, 51 percent say they will vote for Schwarzenegger, the actor turned candidate.

    The word is that Arnold Schwarzenegger has the race all locked up. Don't believe it. Governor Gray Davis may indeed be recalled. And Arnold Schwarzenegger may in fact become governor. But neither outcome is preordained. The CNN-Time poll released this weekend has received international coverage. It shows the recall comfortably ahead, and Schwarzenegger clearly out in front. The Terminator already is at 25 percent, compared to Democrat Cruz Bustamante at 15 percent, Republican Tom McClintock at 9 percent, Republican Bill Simon at 7 percent, and independent Arianna Huffington, Republican Peter Ueberroth, and Democrat Larry Flynt tied at 4 percent each....

    Gallup ^ | 8-11-03 | Gallup
    PRINCETON, NJ -- California voters seem poised to dump their current governor more than three years before his term expires and replace him with a popular Hollywood actor with virtually no political experience. If the election were held today, a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll shows that the recall drive would draw the support of close to two-thirds of California's registered voters (only a majority is needed). Among a list of the more prominent people running to replace the incumbent Governor Gray Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger draws the most support, with the current lieutenant governor a distant second place.The recall election is scheduled...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger voted for a 1994 ballot measure to deny social services to illegal immigrants, his campaign said Sunday — offering the first glimpse of the actor's stand on a major policy issue. The Republican has promoted himself as the candidate in California's gubernatorial recall who can best appeal to the state's politically and ethnically diverse electorate. But Democrats were quick to jump on the disclosure as a chink in the action hero's armor. The GOP-backed Proposition 187 to deny health care and public education to illegal immigrants was passed by a wide margin, although...

  • Bustamante Must Not Win - How to Beat Him

    Bustamante Must Not WinDemocrat Strategy The recall candidates are all filed and set. The democrats have held solidarity as much as possible with Cruz Bustamante, the incumbent Lt. Governor as their only candidate. They have decided on their campaign: Recall No, Cruz yes. Their strategy is to urge a no vote on the recall combined with a vote for Bustamante for Governor in the event Davis is recalled. As Lt. Governor, the dems have determined that he “has dibs” on the Governorship, as Frank del Olmo put it in an op-ed piece in the LA Times. The dems came to...

His testimony, however, may have backfired on both of them as the misdemeanor child-endangering case entered its second day in Portage County Municipal Court. Brad L. Barnhill, Donkers' husband, testified that he was talking to his wife on her cell...

    Bill Simon must be stopped. He is heading towards losing TWO election for Republicans in California. Simon needs to be convinced by any means neccessary to drop out and put his support behind Tom McClintock. California FReepers must organize to get the message to him. Put up signs in front of his home, direct confrontation, action committes and networks, whatever it takes. California cannot afford to have Bill Simon blow yet another election. We have put too much work into making this recall happen, and its Simon's fault in the first place. He is obviously too stupid to get a...

  • How to Solve the Budget Crisis in Three Easy Steps

    08/10/2003 3:42:15 PM PDT · by Canticle_of_Deborah · 22 replies · 220+ views
    California’s budget crisis is not complicated and it is not intractable and it is not mysterious. Over the last four years, population and inflation have grown at a combined rate of 21 percent. Revenue has grown 28 percent. Spending has grown 40 percent. Our distress is not for lack of revenue but for lack of discipline. And to restore that discipline, three simple acts are all that is needed to put California’s financial crisis behind us. First, the immediate budget shortfall requires policy makers to abide by the first law of holes: when you’re in one, stop digging. Most of...
  • Schwarzenegger May Have Terminated Clintons' Support for Davis

    Up until this weekend, Bill and Hillary Clinton were pulling out all the stops to save failed California Gov. Gray Davis from political oblivion and preserve the mega-state's 55 Electoral College votes for Democrats in next year's presidential election. But it looks like the daunting candidacy of action star Arnold Schwarzenegger may prompt the former first couple to terminate their overt support for Davis. "I think that there's a political calculation going on now," reported MSNBC's Nora O'Donnell on Sunday. She noted that it may not be "worth it for [the Clintons] to be standing on the stage with...

Given that California is the largest state in the nation, and given that Arnold is a Republican, you would think that every Republican on earth would be wildly ecstatic right now.Unfortunately, that isn't so. As is, sadly, too often the case, a vocal minority of the GOP is...
