The article is too kind about discussing Newsom. We have seen our urban areas become more dangerous and undesirable, with San Francisco being a prime example. That view is shared by people of all political parties. We have seen the legalization of crime where criminals have learned to stay under the $1,000 threshold for misdemeanors. We are seeing mismanagement of our forests, with massive fires becoming an annual event. We have money spent on everything except serious issues such as dams for more water. Our educational system is one of the worst in the nation. Our taxes are some of the highest in the nation. Our wonderful suburbs are being transformed into high density urban centers that bring more traffic, pollution and strain on resources.
I will be voting YES to remove Newsom.

The former Democratic majority leader for the California state Senate, Gloria Romero, has endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder.

Boy oh boy, times are ah changing. But wait! There’s more!

Where is that local liberal blogger from Raucous Caucus? Hope he’s okay, but he has been eerily quiet these days, yeah? And speaking of eerie…

The look on Newsom’s face these days is priceless. Talk about panic! Ooh wee, there is no denying that this clown is in trouble. Even if Newsom somehow hangs on, he is damaged goods for the rest of his political career. And speaking of damaged goods, the current Disaster in Chief ain’t doing well at the polls.

President Mumbles and Fumbles poll numbers show dismal approval ratings. Let’s see now…

Reuters 46 / 49
