Tom McClintock warned us that Meg Whitman is the third term of Arnold. She appeared to confirm this on the John and Ken show recently.
It appears that Meg Whitman does not care about her Republican base or is she taking it for granted? The best suggestion this blogger can make is for people to call her campaign office and/or email her campaign office and hold her accountable for her weak positions on Key issues.
Quoting Carla Marinucci of the SF Chron:
In the interview, Whitman said “yes” when asked if, as governor, she would layoff 40,000 state workers, admitted she was still undecided, but unlikely to support Prop. 23 on the November ballot, and strongly defended her immigration policies.
Whitman — who has been sharply critical of the state’s climate change bill AB32 as a “job killer — said that “in all likelihood,” she will vote against Prop. 23. That measure on the November ballot would suspend AB32 until unemployment rates drop to near 5 percent for four consecutive quarters; Whitman has called for a moratorium on the bill to further study it.
To further study what!? AB32 is the largest tax increase in state history! We have the second worst unemployment rate in the country and Meg Whitman wants to study? We have three months to go before election day – there is no time to study…
Oh and Whitman’s own staffer – hired for the CRP for the “Victory 2010” effort didn’t have a clue that the state GOP endorsed YES on Prop 23 already. (Read Carla Marinucci from the SF Chron again)
… but there is plenty of time for the GOP base to abandon ship. If Whitman refuses to act like a Republican by being unafraid to stand up for soverignty and freedom from Eco-Tyranny, we’re sunk. Steve Cooley is Sunk. Damon Dunn is Sunk. Abel Maldonado is Sunk. It could also dash hopes of Fiorina taking Barbara Boxer out.
Just go home Conservatives. It’s Arnold all over again – now if it is as simple as Whitman not following her script, then her instincts are those of a Liberal Democrat.
Either way – the only way Whitman can climb out of this hole is to acknowledge that Conservatives are her base. Her appeal across the middle is financial management and economic revitalization and that AB32 is environmental extremism.
Anything else is a disaster for California – we already have a Liberal Democrat running for Governor.
Call Meg Whitman’s campaign – click here to find a list of contacts – and ask them why she is taking the Republican Party down the green drain.
It is not too late – I finish with a final quote from the SF Chron article:
