    That was Mary Carey.
    Trek "Thunder" Kelly is this one.

    I watched the "victory party" on Game Show Network, which had, for the past seven days, aired a game-show style debate featuring Gary Coleman, Carh Mehr, Kelly, Carey, Nate Walton, and Bryan Quinn, and the winner of a $21,200 campaign contribution (the maximum allowable by law) was determined by the viewers. GSN said they were the first to predict that the recall was successful. (BTW, Mary Carey won the $21,200.)

    All I can say is "God Help US ALL!"

    I am not going any futher than that.

    Truly a sad day for the United States, and an even worse one for the state of California.

    Why didn't they go the more logical route: if you're gunna oust the governor, up the vice governor.

    I'd say that California was going to Hell in a hand basket if it wasn't already there. :)

    Anyone have enough money to Recall Swartz?

    Funny, I have no clue why people would put a idiot in office.

    He has no clue whats going on.
    He thinks this is gonna be an easy job, ya, right ... everything that hits his desk will prolly be like .. I PASS!

    Very Very Sad Day in the history of California.

    Hell, Gary Coleman would be a better governor than this fool.

    Well, at least this won't catapult him into the White House.

    I am NOT looking forward to all the Pete Wilson clones in advisory positions.

    Don't worry the LEGISLATURE will make him pay dearly for his win.
    *Then again it may endear him EVEN more to all those who voted for him*

    THe fun only begins... tomorrow morning the CHALLENGES will be filed in court *hope not, let this END now*

    Hey, Arnold cannot do much worse than Gray Davis managed to do, and that's pretty much all I can say on that.

    "<I>Why didn't they go the more logical route: if you're gunna oust the governor, up the vice governor.</I>"
    I don't think anyone was too big of a fan of the Vice Governor either... and those who started the recall (republicans) really wern't fans of the VG...

    "Well, at least this won't catapult him into the White House."

    Are you sure about that?

    "First Bush, now this."

    Don't you mean Reagan?

    Glad i'm East Coast.
     
  14. :rolleyes: Pretty sure, considering the whole "You have to be born here" requirement for the president.

    Looks like I have a massively different opinion than everyone else here. Again. Ah well.

    THAT is the issue.

    NO SPECIAL INTEREST?
    My butt. ANYONE who complains about special interest DOES NOT HAVE their special interest in power.

    Arnie owes some VERY POWERFUL people favors. HE MUST. HE is a very lucky man, very lucky. Shrewd? Yes. I even underestimated him *or underestimated the population of CA - BUT who else was a viable candidate =( - AND NO WAY is the LATINO Bloc of one mentality, how misunderstood we are*

    I trust few in power.
    I hope that OUR best interest in mind, AND NOT of the few * this VOODOO economics & Trickle Down theories IMO don't mean squat*

    This sets a very scary precedent. I am against term-limits BUT there is a reason WHY we vote REPRESENTATIVES. WE need SPECIALIST to tackle economic/political issues & we are suppose to VOTE those we hope best represent us. Too bad there is very little COMPROMISING occuring in Sacramento.

    "THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE?"
    Who funded this recall? HE lives nowhere nor knows my neighborhood.

    At least Arnie KNOWS Manner snacks & Nutella...
    Reminds me of Presidente Fox... so easy to say SO hard to do.

    *Only time will tell, can only hope now, or pray...

    Hey android17a,

    Isn't the current EU president a "colorful" personality?

    Here it is mighty important how they come across in the MEDIA.

    IN CA, there were qualifies candidates and NEITHER won.

    The only reason why a lot of people are against Schwarzenegger is simply because's he's Republican. Had he been a Democrat, then I'm sure half the people here would be like "thank God he won" over "this'll be hell for the next 4 years". Lousy knee-jerk reactions. I mean Larry Flynt registered Democrat and I never heard anything about him, and he's done considerably "worse" things than Schwarzenegger. Or is it because no one cared because everyone knew he wasn't gonna be elected anyways? (Ooohhh, this is why this two party system bugs me so.)

    What ticks me the most is all this "my Governor is better than your Governor" bull that I hear. Arnold has done a LOT of "bad" things, while the other Democrats are as clean as a whistle. [sarcasm] I mean I didn't vote for Bustamante only because of his whole "For the race, everything!" deal a few years back. [/sarcasm] And trust me, voting JUST because of race is the worst reason anyone can vote for. My mom, a Korean, has been screwed over so many times by other Koreans, but she keeps going to Korean businesses just because they're Korean. Race means nothing in terms of how much (or little) one will screw you over.

    Concerning the will of the people; Californians are no smarter/dumber than the rest of the nation. (Give me a few minutes and I can bring up some crazy scheme from YOUR state/country.) Just because were "ooh!" Californians doesn't mean we're any worse off than the other 49 states. Apparently a majority of the Californians feel that Schwarzenegger can do a hell of a better job than Davis would, and they just proved it last night. :) I thank GOD that California is MORE than the San Francisco Bay Area.

    In ALL honesty though, no Californian can really say that their lives are gonna be affected by any of this. If you turn off the TV, stop listening to the radio, and ignore the news prints, then this day (and the every day for the next 4 years) will feel like the other days. Sure you might notice a difference in how much tax you pay.... but that's pretty much it. I challenge anyone to explain any significant impact they felt on their lives between Reagen, Wilson, Davis, and now Schwarzenegger, and how it might have been totally different if "the other guy" was elected.

    You probably wouldn't be saying that if you lived through the Nixon era. Bush is a teeny little boy compared to Nixon.

    .... I'd better stop before I go toooo far here. :\
