Jerry Brown Releases 2 New Ads

Public Service Announcement: Jerry Brown is now campaigning. Actually he has been campaigning for some time, just nowhere near the $125 million dollar level that the non voting billionaire has. Trivia: Meg Whitman's campaign is the biggest spending non-presidential campaign in American history.

Meg is determined to buy the governor's office. This is what billionaires do when they are bored.

Joe,

Looks like another Palin endorsement knocks out a long-term Republican.

Christine O'Donnell HANDILY won the Republican nomination for Delaware tonight over a long-term LIBERAL Republican.

The difference? Endorsements by the tea party and Palin.

Amazing to think of it, but a Palin endorsed candidate could take Biden's seat, and Biden will be out of a gig in two years.

Yes, joe, she may be buying it. Too bad you don't have a SUCCESSFUL person to counter her with.

Career politicians don't make all that much money, although the benefits are the same.

Oh, and Meg created 87,000 jobs. On her own. Outside of GOVT jobs, how many did Jerry Brown create? ZERO!

IF THE WHITMAN AD IS FALSE, WHY DID BROWN APOLOGIZE?

Joe... what the fuck is the difference between a candidate spending their own money on a race, and a candidate that collects donations?
Obama spent $800M to become POTUS. Will you say he bought the office?

The REAL question is not how much a candidate spends. Instead, of the amount they do spend what percentage is their own?
Why?

Because the more of their own money a candidate spends the more they have on the line. Whitman is putting her name and FORTUNE on the line.
On top of that. Who does she have to answer to?
Business groups? Unions? Other special interests?
NO. Just herself at the end of the day.
It's her money. her ideas. Her campaign.

I'll take any person who spends only their own money over a special interest candidate any day. I'd rather have a someone who puts it all on the line, instead of someone who puts your dollar on the line.

Last I checked, this is still America. We're free to do what we want with our own money.

But you go on ahead Joe and pretend like there's nothing wrong with unions spending hundreds of millions of dollars each election cycle to put tards in office, who vote for to benefit unions and not US every single time.

Since you're so proud and happy of our current corrupt, special interest funded elected officials, and not those who spend their own money... how's that budget coming along? how's the state doing? Great, huh?

I've never picked on you before.

But wake the fuck up and realize that by attacking Whitman's choice to spend her own money, you're just saying you're ok with corrupt and purchased pimps as our elected officials.

trojan,
If we were to accept your analysis, then only the wealthy should run for office. Instead of coalition building and broad support, let's just let the billionaires spending their own money call the shots, because, heck, they got the money. Is that what you are saying? Because if you are, you're worse off than I thought.

Joe, why aren't you responding to the question of IF the Whitman ad is false, WHY did Jerry Brown apologize?

Simple question.

What's the answer?

Joe Trojan isn't saying that all candidates should only be those wealthy enough to pay their own way.

He's saying there is nothing wrong with a candidate paying their own way as opposed to some Republican being paid for by businesses or some Democrat being paid for trial lawyers, unions and insurance companies.

Jerry's response is pitiful. A couple of 15 second ads is all he can come up with? And all they say is Meg lied which is a lie in and of itself. Thankfully, voters have learned to mistrust democrats' claims of lies. Y'know, the "Bush lied, people died" stuff that is so predictable and now that the Audacious One has been in the White House for a while, people are still dying. Is he lyin'?

Face it. Jerry's going to be the "McCain" of the 2010 Gubernatorial election, an old guy who can lose gracefully in the hope that by the next election a serious candidate can be fielded.

Another great night for Republicans as America wakes up to the reality of life under Democatzy and realize that Republican 'Lite' isn't gonna cut it. Delaware selects the TP candidate to lead the battle for governor.

Meanwhile, in good old California, Republican AG candidate Steve Cooley didn't have to do a thing to thrash and trash his democrat opponent; Kamala "the female Obama" Harris.

Harris's Averil 'Ace' Smith campaign to elect the first african american AG in California managed to shoot itself in the foot as only Ace can. For weeks now female Obama has been airing attack ads claiming Cooley received dirty money from a guy called Gladwin Gill, in his 2004 campaign. In 2008, Gil pleaded guilty to one count of election fraud for his dirty dealings in Bush campaign and got a year in the slammer.

But what Ace and Harris were too stupid to realize was that an even bigger crook called Hsu had given dirty money to Harris in her 2006 campaign. Last year a federal judge sentenced Hsu to 24 YEARS in prison. Worse, not only did Harris know all about it, but she promised to return the dirty money. Only she didn't. Now saying she "forgot" about it. How f'ing stupid can the female Obama be? Cooley will have a field day over this, although he's got real dirt on Harris, just wait until the week before the postal ballots go out.

Joe, I am not saying only the wealthy should run.
I'm not saying only those with backing from special interest should run.
What I am saying is that you can't say Whitman is buying an office (she has yet to win) because she's using her own money, while Brown is not buying an office because he has special interest backing.
Either they both are buying an office or neither one is.

So which is it?

Also, a lot of people who run for local offices put a lot of their own money on the line. Usually they are not the special interest pimp. Democrat or Republican.

I have a tendency of voting Republican, but I have a bigger tendency of voting for the person (D or R) who puts their personal finances on the line.

In regards to a candidate spending their own money to campaign for elected office, I also don't see anything illegal or improper about it. But, in my humble opinion, the motive for anyone seeking a position of Governmental authority deserves scrutiny and that's our right as voters in this great state. Meg is obviously a business minded person and, as well advertised, and uses shrewd business principles to amass her wealth. And voters are permitted to question why she would accept a position in government, that she obviously doesn't need and/or that would result in a considerable loss of income if she acquired this position. Unless, there is another, as of yet undisclosed, motive to run for office.
The proposition that she only "answers to herself" only fuels the debate as to her fitness in a job that would hold her accountable, to the people of this state. We need MORE accountability of government leaders....not less.

The Republicans are so funny, when the economy is good you say let’s all celebrate “Cinco de Mayo, my brothers” but when the economy is down “it’s all your fault, you damn immigrant”. When most Americans (with Latin America roots) go to the polls this November we will remember that the GOP has gone on a nationwide rant in proposing and passing several anti-immigration legislation (that our US Courts continue to strike down) and have continue to blame the immigrant for the flat economy or worse. We will remember who stands with us and who stands against us, so trying to stop it now is somewhat funny, but go ahead, you will not change our minds. Plus the more radical of the GOP are now attacking our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, in a misguided attempt to garner some much needed votes, they really are fools, and leading the GOP towards obscurity because they are no longer a party of ideas, just of empty suits. Your hate made you do it, in November; you will reap what you have sown. I wonder what Abraham Lincoln would say about todays GOP, he unlike the current GOP was a man of ideas.
