If Meg was actually there I hope someone took the time to explain to her that you can't ban firearms and parts, ammo, Etc. from your business and support the AW ban and then claim to support the 2A. That woman bugs the hell out if me.

I think her motive may be at least partly pure. She may really believe California needs someone like her to help California in its time of crisis. I think she is just what California doesn't need, but if she get elected I'll support here when she is right and oppose her when she is wrong.

Poizner isn't going to win, but if someone manages to graft working wings on to a pig does anyone want to make a wager that when the time comes he will consider the gun bill in front of him to be "common sense legislation that protects the children of California" and is thus not a breaking of his campaign promises?

I think he is just saying this stuff to get the pro-2A vote, the press release on his site about McDonald looks like a feeble attempt at pulling away some of the support he sees Brown getting for his brief.

I love the Whitman literature. I've already thrown it out, but it said something like "at this time, Meg sees no need for new gun control laws".

What about tomorrow? What about next week? What about after you're elected? Will you see the need for new laws then?

I agree, Meg is not my choice.

I'm actually going with Jerry Brown. I know he is far from perfect, but at least he gets it as far as the Second Amendment is concerned.

She sees no need for more gun control for now - sort of like Governor Wallace saying he doesn't see the need for any more Jim Crow laws in 1963. How's about getting rid of a few of them?

I will never vote for her, has nothing to do with EBay - just her publicly stated position on gun control that she will do absolutely nothing to help us.

Vote Poizner during the primary to keep Meg out of the general election. Then, vote for whoever you want because I'm sure Poizner wouldn't be half as bad as Meg. Just my opinion.

Let's review some Poizner and Meg Whitman history.

Their current purported RKBA stances are, at best, "road-to-Damascus" conversions and are alliances of convenience at best.

For Whitman, it'll be a tight race against Brown - her money vs. his voter reg advantage. For Poizner, he's dead already unless Meg Whitman drops dead, or was found dealing kiddieporn on EBay - and he's just holding out for that 0.00001% chance. He's also keeping some of his last campaign people fed.


STEVE POIZNER ... in some recent posts I had stated that he'd refused to meet with NRA reps in the past.

It turns out that it's worse: back when Poizner was running against Ira Ruskin for a Bay Area 21st dist assy seat, friggin' Poizner told NRA reps to "f***k off, I don't need your right-wing BS."

It was so bad Ruskin was even looked at somewhat more favorably than Poizner, and Ruskin was terrible.

While the above Poizner 'quote' is only approximate in its wording, its tone/demeanor and overall content are indeed correct. If necessary, folks with high credibility would be able to be deposed under oath to the overall veracity of the above paraphrased comment of his.

Furthermore, please ignore the Tom McClintock statment or at best please ignore any RKBA inferences therefrom. These are internal campaign & aide matters and a bit of backslapping-exchange for future races. [Frankly, to the best of my knowledge Tom McClintock has relatively little RKBA relevance in CA other than his 'no' vote on bad gun bills and some friendly public statements: I have not seen him drive achievable incrimental gun bills - unlike folks like, say, Curt Hagman who really tried to drive AB962 repeal.]

I know that some nice gunnies are supporting Poizner, but I hope they see the light or come to understand Mr. Poizner has either badly represented his past gunrights stance or he just had a massive vision 2 months ago. I've had such visions too, but they usually involved large amounts of Wild Turkey and a night of vomiting cured it.

And to the best of my knowledge, Mr. Poizner has not returned/completed an NRA candidate questionnaire. I'd bet that would be necessary for someone in his position (past repudiation, supposed new convert, looking for the gun vote...)


MEG WHITMAN... her minions were at the Cow Palace gun show. They seemed to be fairly campaign-experienced.

One 'gentleman' that supposedly 'wore' an NRA hat seemed to keep the hat on the show table along with Meg's statements about her newfound conversion to the 2nd [despite her past EBay history of declaring war on even the most trivial commerce in ordinary firearms-related parts like grips, barrels, scope mounts, etc.]

The use of the NRA hat with the big 3-letter logo appeared to me be a way of trying to steal an inferred NRA endorsement - which is a plain ol' lyin' sack-of-crap dishonest stance. I've heard this may have happened in other arenas besides this particular show so it's likely not a solo incidence that could have just been misinterpreted. I think this repeated conduct was so egregious I wouldn't be at all surprised if eventually some memo were to come out disavoing Meg 100% - NRA does NOT like when its good name is misused.

Not to make it sound too simple minded, but I'll be damned if I support Meg Whitman, ebay, paypal or anyone affiliated with the organizations that have frozen my accounts and taken away my hard earned money for selling gun parts like barrels and holsters (NOT guns). No matter what that woman or her cronies say, I will never trust her.

Meg Whitman is not what California needs. I'm sure most of the candidates aren't what California needs. Since Poizner apparently has little chance in the general election wouldn't the next concern be voting tactically in the primary election to keep Meg from making it to the general election? Is that possible?

OleCuss
05-02-2010, 8:39 AM
OK, let's keep some perspective on McClintock/Poizner.

Having been in on some decision-making processes regarding endorsements, there are a number of things which may enter into the decision as to whom to endorse and why/why not (note that this is not comprehensive):
1. Who will best represent your interests.
2. Who actually has a chance of winning? Backing a sure loser means you lose.
3. Who am I going to tick off if I endorse the best candidate and how will that hurt me? I've heard candidates make veiled but very clear threats as to what they'd do to us if we endorsed someone else.
4. Are you making a primary endorsement or a flat out endorsement at all electoral levels?
5. How will you phrase your endorsement so that it says enough but not too much?

I've never been a candidate or helped in the campaign for one, but I know they'll also consider whether the endorsement will hurt them with their base and/or whether the endorsement will help or hurt future fund-raising.

In this case, I think McClintock is playing the politician. Unless Poizner was lying to our member who talked to him, Poizner is either relatively undefined on the RKBA or he is actually anti-RKBA. If McClintock had extensively discussed conservative issues with Poizner, then McClintock would be having trouble with Poizner's lack of a clear RKBA commitment (unless McClintock is not really all that conservative) - or McClintock would have found that Poizner is committed to the RKBA (in which case Poizner lied to our CGN member).

Net effect is that I don't think McClintock's endorsement is based on a deep understanding of Poizner's commitment to mutually shared conservative issues. Means I think McClintock is either looking out for his own interests or he just thinks that Poizner is the only viable alternative to a truly horrible Whitman.

much to my friends annoyance whom i promised i wouldn't get into political discussions with others around him, i did just that Saturday. the guy selling knives at the table in the middle had a few cool items i stopped to look at and i noticed the poizner table next to him where the talking heads were trying to convince some one that steve really was progun. I mentioned to the guy at the table i was at that it must suck being next to that table all day when he said no it sucks being in between the 2 of them, thats when i noticed the meg table on the other side. I immediately went to the meg table to hear her stance on the 2nd and heard the same thing as has been said on here about how she thinks we just need to enforce current laws and blah blah blah.

thats when i asked about ebay and why her anti gun stance when she was there. I was told she wasnt the one to make the policy and had no power to change it:rolleyes:
I asked them if they needed a bridge cause i had one i was selling cheap:chris:

The primaries are still a closed affair, correct? I really don't see that there is anyone else to vote for in the Republican primary, if guns are the issue, other than Poizner simply because Whitman has already said she supports CA gun control. Now if you happen to think Brown is ultimately a better choice than Poizner, defeating Whitman in the Republican primary seems to his advantage also.

I saw Meg's table Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, I was pressed for time and didn't get to go into it more than lament that my 2A related questions were deleted/ignored off her web site.

Her handout contains a scant paragraph (on page 40) on her 2A stance, and can be read as "hedged" at best:
"""
OPPOSE ANY NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS
Meg supports the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, but she believes the right to bear arms can and should be balanced with responsible gun control laws. At this time Meg believes that California does not need additional gun control measures.
"""

The guy I spoke to at the booth seems to either be under-briefed, or is good at hiding. I handed him a CGN referal card, I'll follow up if he contacts me.

It looks like Poizner is probably gaining just a little on Whitman. The most important words in that sentence are probably "just a little". I don't think he can make up the difference, but you just never know for sure until the poll that really counts comes in.

Actually, it looks more like Whitman is losing support as opposed to Poizner gaining it. Also, with the latest numbers I've seen being Whitman 47% vs. Poizner 19% would suggest about 1/3 of the voters have not yet decided. If the undecided break very heavily for Poizner, then he could yet win.

Still, betting heavily on Poizner doesn't seem too bright at this time.

Poizner is going to be in bad shape soon. He stated last night that he supported the Arizona Immigration law in the debate last night. In a state with a large Hispanic voting population he did not make a smart move. Whitman is a joke, going with more people with little to no political knowledge or background is just plain dumb. Most of her early campaign that was not attacking Poizner was modeled exactly after Arnold's last two campaigns. Most of her $25 million has been spent on a slander campaign against Poizner and Brown without actually saying what she is going to do differently besides pointing out that she has no political experience. I honest worry about this state's fiscal future more than gun rights, but I think Brown has my vote in both the gun and fiscal aspects of governance.

Remember that Poizner is running for the Republican nomination. Supporting the Arizona immigration/trespassing law may help him more than harm him at this time.

I otherwise generally agree with you.

This possibility is a very good reason to vote Poizner in the primary. Poizner has no chance in the general, but Whitman could potentially get extra votes just for not being a white male.

My GF Liz likes Whitman since she's an MBA startup type, and of course these types of people have the ability to fix CA's problems.

Arnold couldn't fix CA [wholly aside of the gun issue, he did try some valid things] and he's 10X smarter than Meg. If Arnold & Meg played poker, Meg would be naked in the street turning tricks.

The guy I spoke to at the booth seems to either be under-briefed, or is good at hiding. I handed him a CGN referal card, I'll follow up if he contacts me.


Doesn't she or her campaign realize that showing up with that literature at a gun show means nothing more than "I'm wasting my time"? Really, that shows no ability to connect with gun owners, no understanding of what's important to us - they'd have been better off with a Whitman sign and some poor slob wearing a tag that said "Ask me a Question".

i did ask to be taken off the list. i also asked them numerous times to spell my name right :(

btw Poizner is also a startup type :) can you find yourself when you turn on gmaps on your cell? ;)

It seems to like placing me an adjacent block or so away.

But then I have an iTouch.

If Meg Whitman gets in there, she'll be a hell of a lot worse than Arnold ever was.

...and in the process, Meg Whitman will destroy whats left of the Republican party in California.

MEG WHITMAN... her minions were at the Cow Palace gun show. They seemed to be fairly campaign-experienced.

One 'gentleman' that supposedly 'wore' an NRA hat seemed to keep the hat on the show table along with Meg's statements about her newfound conversion to the 2nd [despite her past EBay history of declaring war on even the most trivial commerce in ordinary firearms-related parts like grips, barrels, scope mounts, etc.]

The use of the NRA hat with the big 3-letter logo appeared to me be a way of trying to steal an inferred NRA endorsement - which is a plain ol' lyin' sack-of-crap dishonest stance. I've heard this may have happened in other arenas besides this particular show so it's likely not a solo incidence that could have just been misinterpreted. I think this repeated conduct was so egregious I wouldn't be at all surprised if eventually some memo were to come out disavoing Meg 100% - NRA does NOT like when its good name is misused.

Perhaps the the 3 letters on the Gents Hat were for National Recovery Administration

Since she is such a fan of all the "Great Work" Van Jones (Avowed Communist) was doing in Oakland!
