LA Times, SF Chronicle and Sacramento Bee Endorse Jerry Brown for CA Governor

Sunday, October 3, 2010

Jerry Brown, the Democratic candidate for California, received the endorsement of three leading state newspapers: the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Sacramento Bee.

Los Angeles Times

“For its next governor, California is in dire need of a dynamic and optimistic grownup, one with the personality, perspective and presence to remind voters that theirs is a fabulously wealthy state and not the downward-spiraling mess that national media reports delight in comparing to Greece or Portugal. To a state desperate for leadership, he brings the seen-it-all-before wisdom of a political veteran.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Brown’s claim that “If you’re looking for frugality, I’m your man,” is supported by his history. His tightfistedness during his governorship did not make him popular within the Capitol and helped build the $5 billion surplus that led to the tax revolt by Californians who didn’t like the state holding onto more money than it needed.

Sacramento Bee

“Jerry Brown offers a road map for recovery that is much more in tune with California’s values. Brown has also made a compelling case for why he would be a more effective leader than Whitman, which is why The Bee recommends Brown for governor.  Jerry Brown – the best pick for Governor.”

    Nutmeg Whitman’s illegal alien maid problem is the rock that will sink her campaign. Californians are so tired of the politics-as-usual approach to running the state government. She’s a liar and an outsider and I think people resent her billion dollar fortune.

    This is great News for today. NUT-Meg still denying that she did anything wrong..that’s good for Jerry Brown. ‘ Most ‘ people don’t like it when a hypocrite stands there and LIES to their face. Especially if the Hypocrite is a Multi-Millionaire.

    BTW..I see that you have a ” I Support Same-Sex Marriage ” Icon. Make sure you don’t miss the post up now on Palingates about the huge controversy coming out of Michigan and A. Coopers interview with Shirvell. PG has numerous Updates that show the many layers of this story. Lets hope A.Cooper has a follow-up story about Shirvell and Cox to reveal the REST of their dirty little History.

    Good on Jerry Brown.

    He had better win the election or I may move north to Seattle for the next four years because I can’t envision myself staying here if Whitman becomes governor.

    My sister is a public school teacher and she’s worried what will happen if Whitman runs the state. It’s been bad enough with Governor Arrrrnold.

  4. R.J. says:

    It feels like the tide is turning. However what I think you’ll see here in California is a low turnout because people who would have voted for NutMeg may stay home on Election Night after this scandal.

  5. Big Hank says:

    Jerry Brown is a decent man. He’s smart and he’s a proven leader. Plus, he has integrity.

    Meg Whitman is a businesswoman and a social conservative. Not well suited for the Golden State.

    I have a good feeling about a Brown victory.

  6. mauigirl says:

    Good news from California. I hope Brown wins!

  7. Conejo1982 says:

    They streamed some of the Brown.Whitman debate and in true sociopath fashion, Whitman charged the Brown campaign with exploiting Nicky Diaz!

    You can’t make this stuff up. But hey, Whitman is a Republican and when was the last time you saw a Republican admit fault?

    I still remember Richard Nixon saying, “I am not a crook!”

  8. Adirondacky says:

    I know things are bad off out west in California but I mean guys, you can’t seriously be considering electing Meg Whitman and not Jerry Brown? Folks, don’t do it because you will regret it. Jerry Brown is the best man for the job. He’s a proven leader and will deliver for you. Don’t make a mistake and elect the wrong person!

  9. Greg Equality Lengkong says:

    I like Jerry Brown. He’s pro-gay marriage, pro-repeal of DOMA and DADT, came out early and forcefully against Prop 8 and he supports the use of marijuana for medical conditions.

    He’s a man of the 21st century and a perfect reflection of California values.

    Hey, Walk on Socks, worst case scenario, and Brown is defeated by the eBay bitch, can I join you in Seattle?

  10. feminazi says:

    Meg Whitman, as far as I know, came out early in her campaign against illegal immigration. Now she’s been outed for employing an undocumented worker as her maid over a period of nine years. This suggests to me she’s a dime-a-dozen hypocrite. She can’t be trusted and her word means nothing. People aren’t stupid.

  11. fran says:

    Thank you Megs for handing over the election.
    Will she sell her used campaign stuff on e bay?
    (former e bay exec).

  12. Tiny Dancer says:

    “Will she sell her used campaign stuff on ebay?”

    ROFL! I love it!

  13. Jolly Roger says:

    Shitman would endorse summary executions of undocumented immigrants if she thought she could win that way. This is probably the most unprincipled person to run for office this campaign cycle, and that is saying something.

    Odd how none of Shitman’s apologists have invaded this post. Has it gotten THAT bad for them now?

  14. Rinaldo says:

    Jerry Brown’s biggest problem: he is a veteran politician, been around since the dawn of man … has been governor before, and mayor of Oakland … I think I remember voting for him in democratic presidential primary … in 1976! my first year voting! And his father was governor before him, so he comes from a professionally political family. He is 72 years old, and spent his whole life as a politician or political commentator.

    In other years, at another time and place, his background would be a “plus”, but not this year.

  15. John Shanton says:

    It is funny how so many equate experience with number of years in service. From where I stand, I see a veteran politician as one who has failed – if he has not helped his constituents, or the state he represents. Did I not hear that California has gone belly-up?
