Listening to her live. Curious if john and ken mention anything with respect to the 2nd amendment. If not, delete the post.

I listened to part of the interview as well. I liked what I heard from her with regard to her ideas about immigration, state spending, education, taxes, and jails. I did not hear the interview in its entirety and I did not hear anything about 2A either.

Just my personal observation, but they all (both parties) say whatever they think the majority of voters they expect to get support from want to hear. Both they and we know that once they are in office, they can do as they please with little recourse available to any of us who feel betrayed. Whitman didn't even bother to vote most of her privileged life--that's a sure sign of a person who doesn't believe in democracy or a republic. That counts her out for serious consideration in my book. I hope her party has an ace in the hole because she ain't it.

I want to address this whole "business people make great public sector executives" idea. Businesses operate on the sole idea that they grasp every bit of profit they can from their customers, their vendors, their labor--to enrich themselves while governments should operate so as not to turn a profit. Not turn a profit? That is anathema to a business person. Just look a Goldman-Sachs, AIG, et all--even facing the collapse of the system they were angling to get all they can rake in with both hands no matter who they get it from. And you cannot seriously think that was a good use of your tax dollars. Do you really want her in charge of you tax money? I am not saying any candidate the Democrats float up will be any better, but I am sure not convinced she has the skill or mindset to be a public servant--more like a conduit for corporate interests and lobbyists in the name of private sector profits from public (i.e. taxpayer) dollars.

She's lying. She's only been a "Conservative" since 2007. Jerry Brown for Governor.

Yes, those of you who don't know about what he's been doing seem to be focused on his past terms. Now he's more conservative than every candidate from teh GOP...

I'd call him a Libertarian now.

Former CEO of gun-prohibiting eBay? (One could buy/sell guns over eBay years ago, fyi) You need to ask? Having never bought item 1 from her freedom-hating company, why would I buy her for governor?

And here she is trying to get her freedom-hating toe into politics. Gun owners should find her "inappropriate material" for elective transactions (or whatever language eBay used when they banned guns).

And now she wants our vote. Typical California Republican sellout.

Don't delete the thread! Many gun-owners may be fooled by this RINO.

I'd call him a committed socialist, but what do I know? I only lived through his mismanaged governorship as a kid. How old were you between 1975 and 1983?

Sure, maybe it's possible that a 71 year old man who loved AB50 has changed his political stripes, but I think that California once again has produced another slew of irrational screwball candidates for their gubernatorial race and deserves every bit of the outcome. I'll give you that much at least, if that was an unrevealed point you were trying to make but never mentioned:


Jerry Brown's 1990s radio diatribes could haunt him in Calif. governor's race (http://www.sacbee.com/capitolandcalifornia/story/2267658.html)

by Jack Chang
The Sacramento Bee

More than a decade before Jerry Brown's current incarnation as undeclared gubernatorial front-runner, he hit the airwaves of liberal Berkeley radio station KPFA five days a week to speak his mind.

What he said then, as he interviewed poets, activists and the likes of leftist icon Noam Chomsky, promises to resurface this coming year as the 71-year-old former governor ponders running for a historic third gubernatorial term.

During his three years on the air, Brown repeatedly blamed corporate malfeasance and political corruption for undermining American democracy and even causing deaths, according to edited excerpts of the radio broadcasts.

Brown regularly attacked President Bill Clinton as a lackey for business interests and in one excerpt stated, "I don't believe Clinton is different from Richard Nixon."

He called capital punishment "state murder" and said U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, both Democrats, had "sold out" U.S. truck drivers by letting their Mexican counterparts drive uninspected vehicles into the United States.

In one of the most controversial excerpts, Brown called the prison system a racket that pumped profits out of the poor's misfortunes and into the pockets of prison guards.

it is well known that MW is a liberal in disguise, she is just trying to ride the small gov't sentiment right now. She has brainstormed with Jimmy Carter and Van Jones, she is taped showering praises upon van jones. She never voted, She has a long history of donating money to the most extreme radical left causes. She is *extremely* anti 2A wake up, she is on a sales pitch right now, literally trying to purchase the governorship.

I heard most of the interview, but heard nothing about 2A. She comes across very strong.She really took it to JB.

I only listened to about the first half of the interview and didn't hear anything specific about JB. It's striking that she's saying pretty much verbatim what Arnie said years ago, and we all know how that turned out.
