Too bad, so sad.

I'm glad Jerry Brown is so strong here.

If progressives were smart they'd put up a genuine left progressive. Republican primary voting on all levels is so small, left progressive and socialists could easily take over the party.

Reagan and Nixon must be having a pity party in Hell.

To be honest, I am surprised that they can find anyone to run for governor of CA. It really is a no win job.

Kind of like hosting the Oscars, but much longer.

We often have nearly no republican candidates for Mayor here in philly.

Philly is not a diverse state with 34 million people.

How about a Broyhill dining room set?

It's got more charm than any Republican, and it seats eight!

Yes, because the Democratic strong hold here in California has been working out so well for us. Outrageous taxes, no real social services for people who need it, Union Strongholds destroying our economy demanding insane pensions, outrageous demands on emissions giving us some of the highest gas prices, companies fleeing with jobs to avoid being taxed to death.

Yep, it's a wonderful example of what the Democrats can do.

Let's consider the last few California governors:

1975–1983: Jerry Brown (Democratic)

1983–1991: George Deukmejian (Republican)

1991–1999: Pete Wilson (Republican)

1999–2003: Gray Davis (Democratic)

2003-2011: Arnold Schwarzenegger (Republican)

2011-present: Jerry Brown (Democratic)

Meg Whitman said it best in 2010: She remembered very well how California was a great success it was back in the late-1970s.

Thanks for fucking yourself up there in your trolling, Freeper R13!

Quiet r5, don't give her any ideas.

by Anonymousreply 1502/25/2013

And oh so wise r14 what has the majority been in Sacramento? Democratic for a long time. And Arnold a Republican? HAHAHAHA in name only.

So thanks for playing to you.

Then move r16. You seem like a bitter troll. You're complaining about limits on emissions? What? Do you want to breathe dirty air that has plagued California for decades. Sorry to break it to you but gas is going to get higher and higher. I'd rather live in a state that has conscience when it comes to the environment.

It isn't a Democrat/Republican thing... California is the land of fruits and nuts. The proposition system makes the state very difficult to govern regardless of ones party affiliation. The state seems to attract loonies of both parties. The state is prone to ridiculous regulations that even most liberals feel are absurd (Brass keys are a health hazard????)

Amazing that the state which gave the Republicans 2 modern Presidents, Reagan & Nixon, now has become such a wasteland for the GOP.
