If brown gets elected we can just call the state Oakland. If anyone votes an incumbent back into to office you are an idiot. Regardless of party. for the most part the the liberal democrats have been in control of this state for 30 years and have absolutely run it into the ground with social programs for the breeders who are breeding more liberal voters to get their needs for free funded by the tax payers who will eventually not be able to live here anymore because of over taxation. Then what who will take care of the indigents then. everyone needs a hand up once in a while but the hand outs need to go away. we need free spay and neuter programs for the folks that aren't responsible enough to to use contraception so that they don't create another generation of gov dependent breeders to keep repeating the cycle. If you can't support yourself you have no business having a child. Birth control should be manditory for welfare period. No ifs, ands or buts. For all you liberal democrats you should pull you head out of the sand and really take alook at what your fearless leaders have done to this state. You can blame Arnold all you want but he only signs or vetos the bills that the liberal state legislature puts in front of him. By the way what ever happened to the redistricting that the democrats were supposed to make happen after the special election? Funny when you can secure your votes to retain your job you wouldn't change either. The follow quotes fit this state and vast majority of the sheep that adhere to its liberal philosophy.

I still wasn't sure who I was gonna vote for. Then I got this flyer mailed to my home. Explaining to me how she doesn't like illegals. Well that made up my mind. I will now vote for her. Because anyone that allows one of our States to be put down the way Arizona has by mexicos president, and at the U N. If this is what mr brown is for then he is not an American. this country is about WE THE PEOPLE AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I don't think we need a leader that does not fight for this.

I just watched the two of them jab.

At least now no parent would even consider a vote for Brown over Whitman.

Go Meg.

Mug Whitman as a result of her clown persona during the debate will lose ground.
Brown was dynamic, energetic, all concise. While the Mug was robotic, lifeless, and boring. To say the very least.
Of coarse Mug has a plan for California. That plan is to enrich her millionaire friends and to recoup the millions she has spent on her tasteless negative ads.

Meg Whitman Slammed Jerry Brown Tonight. No question. Brown sounded like he was smoking dope and was all over the place. Scary to know he ran Oakland at one time, unsuccessfully.

Seriously....Any nutjob who thougth "Jerry Brown-nose to the Unions" did okay is just stupid and partisan for their own good.
Jerry did an awful job tonight as he has done on his long track record. Meg nailed it!

The unions contributing millions and millions of dollars for Brown is what turns me off to him. You really think he could face down those who got him elected (if so). He never met a union benefit he didn't support. With a Democrat controlled legislature and Brown, the state will go down faster than the Titanic. At least with Whitman we have a fighting chance.

yes2ca is either a billonaire lunatic who would steal food from the mouths of starving blind children or a pathetic hack paid by NutMeg to try and sound like a normal human. Billionaires have better things to do, like sneaking in illegal immigrants to work in their factories. So, I vote for a degenerate hack.

OK so we want government to work better. So what do we do? Support someone who has never been in government, doesn't vote, thinks government is broken and will break it if it isn't?

We also want more jobs. So what do we do? Support someone who will transfer as much money as possible to the rich (who won't spend it) and who will cut a large number of government jobs?

At least Meg Whitman is a real plutocrat with real money. Poor Carly Fiorina doesn't seem to really have any money and so just has to pretend to be a right wing nut case to get votes from the tea party lunatics. But she too has no real political history, only a history of deploying a golden parachute (not enough money in it though) to escape the wreckage of the private corporation she ruined.

At last electing Arnold was funny! These women are weak basket cases unworthy of any real attention. Neither of them will be able to do their jobs properly in the event they are elected.

What pro Mug Whitman repubots state here in these forums only calls for a whaaaaaambulance!
In the A.M you will see the polls favor Jerry brown even more.
Then come November Jerry Brown will be your governor like it or not.
Brown has the minority vote, the State Worker vote, the Union vote, and all of the cerebrally connected vote.
Mug Whitman has the corporatist vote, and the vote of the mindless working stiffs who have delusions that they are millionaires. LOL

After watching part of the debate, I thoroughly trust Jerry much more than meg-a-million.

I simply do NOT agree with HER (and her millionaire friends ideas or values).

Jerry is much more to the middle (when it comes to economic policies), and meg-a-million is way, way , way to the economic right.

She is purely for "big" business and wants to "save" California through "private" business, which are really ALL her private interest groups that are "donating" so much money to her already.

I just do not trust that she cares about the middle class and working class in this state.

She has no sense of what it means to struggle economically even though you are working your tail off to support and fend for your family. She is totally disconnected from the average, most common, middle to working class Californian.

Even though Jerry is not perfect, he will get my vote.

I trust Jerry to understand my economic needs and the needs of other middle class citizens. I trust Jerry to work hard to support middle class families in this economic downturn. I simply trust Jerry.

What do you say we find the dolts who mark down this post by tracing their IP addresses and force them to give their SSI benefits and health care plan to illegal aliens who may or not be in drug gangs?

Let's see some liberal compassion from lazy San Fran libs who expect mother hen pelosi to steal $$$ for them.
