Jerry Brown Starts to Pull Away in Polls


No surprise that a recent Reuters poll reports Jerry Brown pulling away with a six-point lead over Meg Whitman in California’s gubernatorial race: her detail-free campaign rhetoric doesn’t make sense.

Just imagine… Whitman’s “proposal to eliminate 40,000 state worker positions” is so lacking in rudimentary common sense that even failed Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called her rhetoric “bogus talk” in remarks last week to the Los Angeles Press Club.

Best anyone can tell, political neophyte Whitman is running on a generic, no-brainer platform of “cut spending, create jobs, fix education.” And apparently fire 40,000 workers in a state already saddled with a staggering unemployment rate of 12.4%, one of the nation’s highest.

Just imagine the blind hubris of someone who didn’t vote for 28 years, someone who has absolutely no political experience, believing she possesses the super-powers to magically, and immediately, solve the massive issues and diverse challenges facing California, which has an economy larger than all but eight countries in the world.

So no surprise that, despite lavish, low-blow advertising by billionaire Whitman, the most recent poll shows Democrat Jerry Brown pulling away in the lead to be California’s next governor.

Look for Brown’s lead to grow as voters come to understand how thoroughly unprepared New York-native Whitman is for this next feather she seeks for her professional cap.

    Really nice picture of Meg and very professional of you to not post a pic which would show her in an attractive manner.

    To the Republican Party loyalists:

    Since Meg Whitman is likely to lose why not make political history and vote for the American Independent Party candidate for Governor Chelene Nightingale?
    http://www.nightingaleForGovernor.com

    She has a real campaign and could get 20% of the vote.

    Under Prop 14 rules this November election will be everyone’s last opportunity to see a minor party candidate in the General election.

    AIP (AMERICAN INDEPENDENT PARTY) HAS JUST RULED THAT Chelene Nightingale for governor 2010 AIP cannot use the AIP label on the ballot in Novemeber. Chelene Nightingale lied and used fraudulent ways to gain party access. She hid her Bankruptcy and foreclosure filings and ran a hostile campaign as the AIP did NOT choose her to run. The truth has prevailed. No more Crooks in Government. Amen!
