State GOP turning Schwarzenegger into a lonely leader

Original post made by mepartypatriot on Jun 27, 2010

Excerpts: "After nearly six years in office, Schwarzenegger has few friends left in either party"

"We thought he was going to be a great governor, but he has been a great disappointment," said Genevieve Clavreul, a Republican activist."

"Like Whitman… and Fiorina… Schwarzenegger came to office as a nonpolitician who would solve problems with unconventional ideas."

The difference is that Whitman and Fiorina had hands-on day-to-day business experience. Schwarzenegger had investment experience only. In either case, W&F lack political experience. The Republican party (and California) would have been better off with Poizner and Campbell.

meparty, Poizner paid his dues. I did not agree with him on all things but at least he paid his dues and paid for it.

The extreme right wing (and left wing) does not learn. They would rather vote for the demigod rather than someone with experience and known quality.

The extreme right wing did not learn and we got Schwarzenegger. Current rating at 25% Now Whitman is moving to the right. Is it due her attempts to bamboozle the middle into voting for her or is it the real Meghan?

Do we trust her supporters to make the "right" decision again only to be disappointed again? Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Why should people in the middle, like me, believe you again?

No thanks.

IF meparty poster is a Rep, which I challenge, she's a far right zealot...she sure wasnt' / isn't a supporter of Arnold. Most of the radical right did not vote for him....they wanted McClintock...you know the guy who out front, very vocally, campaigned with many costly mailers for 4 R candidates who ALL LOST BIGTIME in primary 3 weeks ago !. So he doesn't carry much weight. But the zealots wanted him and we would have had Gov Bustamente for the last 6 years ! (McC would have lost BIGTIME, like his endorsees lost this primary). The SOCIAL conservatives never did want him...so nothing is new. Just like they would not vote vote Campbell, tho ALL polls right up to election day, showed he was the only one who could beat Boxer.
The 'outsider' from Wash Post in the 'link' of this post very MISTAKENLY called Whitman and Fiorina the Dream Team, which is very UNinformed, very stupid, and very wrong. Other then 2 GOP females who won that day, that's about where it ends. Their histories are different, their careers had different outcomes, their issues are different, etc. etc. etc. Arnold was good for the state.. Moonbeam Brown's PUBLIC UNIONS and this financial collapse sort of altered Arnold plans. He was a personable actor, but he was not a Harvard MBA like Whitman, nor was he a CEO like Whitman...few have her heft and experience in bigtime business...and this state is pretty bigtime business !So stop lies, they are not the same. Dmike, you're just trying to stir xxxx, you're certainly not'foolin' me. So stop you're spinning on what is not and stop trying to push Meg where she's not.

Boy, Not fooled, there's no fool-in you. Got me pegged...not.

Your ranting is hard to follow, so no point in trying to respond.
