With State Senate president calling off support the for recall of State Senator Jeff Dunham in the spirit of compromise to ask Republicans to pass a timely budget this year, there’s some chest thumping on the part of some Republicans that this was a sign that the Denham recall effort didn’t really have popular support.Ã‚Â
It was fun to read Jon Fleischman’s whiny posts about how this recall was politically motivated and the LA Times reported Denham complained of a political witch hunt even though he contributed thousands of dollars to recall Gray Davis in 2003. No principles then I guess.
So Perata has called it off and taken the high road.Ã‚Â I say recall Denham anyway.Ã‚Â The recall is still on the ballot; he’s a lousy senator and giving this district back to the Democrats will eliminate the relevance of Republicans in the State Senate.Ã‚Â Dump Denham.
Gray Davis was recalled in a highly political campaign pushed by Republicans.Ã‚Â Today’s budget crisis and economic situation is far worse than what we went through with Gray, but you don’t see any Republicans calling for a recall of Schwarzenegger.
For RepublicansÃ‚Â to complain that the Denham recall isÃ‚Â purely political, then they would be correct.Ã‚Â And it would serve them right.Ã‚Â Revenge is a dish best served cold.Ã‚Â Recall Denham means Perata can still claim the high road and give the Flash readers more reason to bitch and moan.
