“You in your infinite wisdom have determined that the state must be leftist because Conservatives dont win elections here.”
No genius, I know that your state is leftist because of the people that run it and the people that represent it. Someone is voting for them I assume. My state is in the same boat thanks in no small part to refugees from yours moving here and bringing their leftist politics with them.
Then the same is true about all of America because we elected Obama.
What is your point?
Let’s see if you can figure out which of these candidates is more likely to win. I’ll try to make it real simple for you. If it’s too hard, you just send off another dim-witted reply certain to offend.
Seeking the office of Governor of California
Dem: Over $10 million dollar war chest
Rep: A little over $2 million dollar war chest
Dem: Flies across the state in a private jet.
Rep: Leases a charter bus for the duration of the campaign.
Dem: Former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Current President, Current Vice-President, current and former Senators, Congressmen, Federal officials, a myriad of state and local officials, a bevy of top named entertainment industry actors and financial gurus show up for five to seven day long swings through the state.
Rep: No former or current presidents or vice-presidents, senators, congressmen, or federal office holders. Perhaps if he’s lucky one minor named Congressman from his own state shows up for one swing through the state. One or two radio or television personalities show up.
Dem: Countless top notch production level spots are aired for months on end on television and radio throughout the state. A number of television programs bring on the candidate “because the public needs and wants to see him”.
Rep: A few spots are aired a week or two out from the election. There are no televised appearances, because the public “doesn’t want to see this guy and they don’t need to.”
Dem: Unions, ACORN, Teachers, Schools, up their game on propaganda and efforts to get the candidate elected.
Rep: Individuals on their own money try to help the candidate any way they can.
Do you have any idea who wins this election?
Do you know how much the spread is?
I mean if your logic is sound, none of this makes any difference whatsoever. If Californians are simply leftist, then none of this would make any difference.
That has seemed to be your learned judgment on this matter.
The fact is, Pete Simon lost an election just like this to Gray Davis. These were the dynamics.
Simon wasn’t what I would call Mr. Charisma. None the less, he did have a pretty good values set. And he did garner a significant portion of the vote, with a severe handicap.
You think it’s, “Californians are leftists” in a nutshell.
The reality is it’s, “Conservative candidates are cast adrift in California”, in a nutshell.
If you have ten million iPads for sale, and only ten people hear about it, and only two of them get a full explanation about what one is, you’re not going to sell them.
It’s no different in politics.
