    Mike — Awesome video. Well done.

    Good video. The only critique would be to ensure that the volume is at the same level for all segments.

    I know. It was my first…next one will be better.

    I am proud to be an Orange County Democrat because I believe in raising people, not dropping bombs. I believe in the rule of law, not the rule of might. I am proud to be an Orange County Democrat because I know that each time I go out on the front lines, there are 500,000 people behind me.

    In short, I am proud to be an Orange County Democrat because it is this community that welcomed me 5 years ago with open arms and became my defacto family. They are the ones I care about and care about me. They are my friends, co-workers, and community members.

    Together, we are the margin of victory.

    I like it. Well made for a first effort. I will stop short of saying Orange County is becoming a purple county, because it won’t happen on its own. It will take a lot of effort from people like us to make that happen. The registration numbers for our party in the OC haven’t changed that much since 2000, not a lot of people seem to get that around here.

    Nice Job!

    Why did you use a picture of Congressman Jerry Lewis when it should have been one of Shawn Steel?

    Wrong picture of Shawn Steel. The one you’re using is that of Jerry Lewis.

    great post Mike. Great shot of Loretta on the firing range. I think Red COunty quit using that photo because she looked so buff & tough.

    You are a credit to your party. But I live in a city, Santa Ana, where there is only one Republican on our City Council. The rest are Democrats – and you would never know it.

    I wish your party would help us do something about Mayor Miguel Pulido and his lackeys. They are a true embarrassment to the DPOC.

    But since Pulido’s lawyer is the DPOC chairman, Frank Barbara, I guess I better not hold my breath.

    You can’t even get his name right–it’s Barbaro.

    Probably a typo North. And Art makes a good point. The party should run the best candidates they can find. Santa Ana needs more people like Michelle Martinez

    It was a typo. Shame on northcountystorm for ignoring the point and focusing on errata. Barbaro has covered for Pulido for far too long. Both of them need to go.

    Maybe I ought to join up with you guys and go for a seat on your Central Committee? You can bet I would give Pulido and his enablers Hell!

    On the other hand, I like being an independent…

    Some typo Art.

    The only letter further away from the letter “a” on your keyboard is the letter “p”.

    Chris —
    sometimes, in the heat of passionate typing, I will use the completely wrong word…its a typo, because I know what I meant to write instead of what I wrote.

    I knew who Art was talking about; and his point is still valid.

  16. September 30, 2007 at 6:40 pm

    I know that. I just wanted to give Art a hard time.
