Intellectual Honesty from the GOP

Fox talker Sean Hannity is always big on asking liberals for their intellectual honesty when he poses a question on their political positions.  So I’d like to put the shoe on the othe foot for our OC and California GOPers out there.

Today’s Register carries an opinion column by Tom McClintock that pretty much points to doom and gloom for the state’s budget under Governor Schwartzenegger’s agenda.  Given that the Governor is doing his best Gray Davis impresion, I want to know when all the Republicans who worked so hard to oust Gray Davis will actually call for a recall of the Governor.  To date, only Allan Bartlett of Powder Blue Report blog has come out in favor of a “Total Recall.”

Where are the rest of you?  Why does this governor get a pass from you when Davis didn’t?  Where is your intellectual honesty here?

    There is more to the story. Davis did not help himself by moving to give driver’s licenses to the undocumented. That struck most Californians as risky behaviour in this post-911 era.

    Davis also bungled the electric power crisis.

    Arnold is screwing up too – but he has a long ways to go before he is as big a dumb-ass as Davis. Granted, he is getting there sooner rather than later.

    Personally I don’t care what he does. He will be gone in four years and then we will likely get stuck with Villaraigosa as our Governor. We will then pine for Arnold…

    Art. You folks crack me up. I have a friend who was a Davis appointee in a non-paying capacity. When Davis got recalled the first thing the Wilson Luddites did was oust all of Davis’ appointees. When my buddy asked why he was told, “we won, you lost, tough luck.”

    So guess what? Arnold won. The GOP was licking each other’s privates when Davis got recalled. So live the consequences of your decision.

    I think the illegal activities of the folks at Enron had more to do with creating the electrical crisis in the first plce; and you’re also forgetting the deregulation of the electrical utility industry that was touted by the Wilson crowd as saing us money when it really cost us all more.

    The point of my post is Republicans were more than happy to oust Davis shortly after being re-elected. Arnold’s special election debacle proved to him that governing from the right was not going to work in California as there are more Dems than Republicans here. So instead of a tax and spend liberal as governor, we have a borrow and spend governor. Te Republican party has proven time and again, statewide and nationally, that they are the party of borrow and spend.
