  •  I also back Brown fully (13+ / 0-)

    He is trying to move things forward without losing the very tenuous support he enjoys from some independents and libertarians.

    We currently control the agenda! We have already changed some of the stupid budget laws and are in a position to change more of them!

    And under Browns proposed budget, UC & CSU are getting back some of what was cut!

    It hurts when the things that end up getting cut or reduced are one's favorite causes, I get that. But California under Jerry Brown is now posed to lead the whole nation out of the Bush Recession, and finally to force the Jarvis slime back into the swamps. I see Brown as key to that.

    There are just so many things wrong in California and in the country and world. As long as some of those wrongs are getting righted, that's progress.

    As for Repugs liking Brown, that's just evidence of the man's skill as a political leader. Instead of putting him down for it, I say let's take advantage of the moment, because I really doubt it will last long.

      What the hey - you think he won becasue of independents and libertarians? Whoa daddy - not even close to reality.

      That's the problem - he's NOT taking advantage of the moment.
      •  Well, perhaps you're right (0+ / 0-)

        I have read a bit of discussion about Brown's supposed libertarian leanings, though, and I suspect that given the choices in 2010, there were a number of libertarian votes for him.

        •  He's the guy who fought Prop 19. He didn't have (0+ / 0-)

          Libertarian support in this state.
