Let the recriminations begin – New Website BLASTS Team Whitman

There is a liberal Republican that a lot of Whitman’s donors were positioning to run for Chairman of the California Republican Party… former Assemblymember Guy Houston.

How much you wanna bet – he gets cold feet?

There is a new website called www.worstcampaigninhistory.com

It TORCHES Meg Whitman and her team.

I have to derive some pleasure from this site after all the hell I have caught for the Red County episode… but Meg Whitman’s flunkie Chip Hanlon is the biggest political loser in the California Blogosphere because he sold out to the worst campaign in history.

The site is pretty caustic – the following is an excerpt which is like the “Mission Statement” of the website:

In every major political campaign, there are 3 main groups of leadership and activity. The leadership team which is made up of political consultants and senior staffer types who are supposed to be the best in their particular field and get paid a ton of money to do a good job. There are the politicians who whore out their principles and lie to the people for the sake of their own career advancement. And lastly the most amusing group, the liars theives and whores that make up the hanger-on types and nobodies trying to make a name for themselves, and assorted dickwads that have brought shame on themselves or the campaign by virtue of being the giant dickwads that they are.

All I can say is that I am glad I supported Steve Poizner.

I can’t help myself – $180M was it worth it?

Red County whored out.

Tons of Republicans – allegedly conservative sold out for some of the money.

What happened? Arnold in a skirt got returned to sender – torched by 13 points.

When your values aren’t clear, how can your message be clear?

And now – the RINO’s Patrick Dorinson, Tony Quinn, et al. are pulling the long knives out to save themselves. They are attacking the Democrats like Henry Gomez in Whitman’s inner circle.

What about the message? Whitman had none.

What did we know? Billionaire, didn’t vote, opposed Prop 23, didn’t like to answer un-scripted questions.

She got stomped while most of the rest of America turned Red.

Please support Amanda “Mandie” Tingler, Glenn Moeller and Todd Lowell.

Quite simply, the Rocklin Unified School Board needs some change.

For too long there has been personal animosity that has overridden the best interests of governance.

I have spoken with Todd Lowell a few times and am convinced that Todd does indeed have the best interests of the children at heart. I also empathize with him about how it feels to get used as a punching bag.

Steve Paul. I do not know him at all.

Having met Glenn Moeller a few times – he has tripped over his own feet campaigning several times… but he wants to serve and he is also an honest man. We can do far worse.

I believe that others see that – which is why this race has not gotten nasty. How can you attack a music leader at a local church?

Amanda Tingler? She’s a Republican, Wendy Lang is not. Case closed.

With respect to those supporting Wendy – there is no such thing as a non-partisan race.

I have probably cost myself a few endorsements and supporters if I run for Rocklin City Council – but that is not the calculation. I am a Conservative first, a Republican second and a candidate third and I am willing to live with the consequences.

Once the primary is over – then I am a Republican – which is why I am voting for Abel Maldonado and Meg Whitman.

CA-Gov Update: Is it true that Whitman has spent more on Spanish Language HQ’s than Republican Victory HQ’s?

We already know that Meg Whitman’s Spanish language ads basically say she opposes Arizona and supports Obama’s lawsuit against securing the borders.

There has been a considerable amount of controversy over that.

Now – I have been told by a few reliable sources that as of now, Team Whitman has spent more on Spanish Language outreach Headquarters than she has on Victory 2010 outreach Headquarters.

Meantime – the Whitman crew is running a full-court press to control the outcome of the California Republican Party Convention next weekend.

I’m getting a headache.

Survey USA. Lampooned as ‘leaning Republican’.

Yet, survey USA accurately predicted the national kool-aid drink of 2008. (the Obamunism tsunami)

Here’s the summary:

Carly 47 – Lt. Col. Boxer 42
Meg 44 – Moonbeam 43
Any-Twosome Newsome 42 Abel Maldonado 41

Whitman went down 2 and Brown up 4 between this and the last poll. 

I believe that Whitman’s difference in the polling is that her stances on social issues – being those of a Democrat – are alienating the base of the GOP to a degree. Perhaps a strong immigration stance and stance in favor of Prop 23 would help Whitman pull even with Carly?

That’s if Whitman is concerned about those voters – after all, Prop 23, that the California GOP endorsed unanimously is mysteriously off the CRP’s website.

Despite Whitman’s apparent separation from some of her base – Carly is suffering no such separation.

As to those that lampoon Survey USA – take a look at the following from Talking Points Memo:

But here’s the thing. SurveyUSA had a really good record in the 2008 cycle. That’s not just my recollection. Nate Silver’s mega-number crunch suggested the same. So are they picking something up which other pollsters aren’t? Given their record in the past cycle, it’s not something I’m inclined to rule out.

Bottom Line: It sucks to be Barbara Boxer.
