I can't wait to start the immediate recall of whoever replaces newsom. If newsome can be recalled for nothing, so can his successor.

The CA recall is a waste of time and money. Wasting time and money is what them Teapublicans are especially good at. Republicans are also experts at finding flaws in the system and exploiting them.

It's the only way they can seem to win these days.

They're masterminds at cheating, but can't do the most basic parts of governing.

Draw an insanely gerrymandered congressional map so that a blue state has red representatives? No problem - spend any amount to hire every expert and write special computer programs to do it.

Plan to distribute a vaccine? Uh just let someone else handle that.

Dems will manage to screw this up. Feinstein will probably Croak and get replaced by a far right quack.

Same story with SCOTUS Breyer.

There are quite a few olds in the Senate, several in Republican-governed States.

We are talking about it. We've been talking about it for a long time.

Feinstein should have retired years ago.

Why did you retire?

My understanding is that that if polling turns against Newsome, he could resign the day before the election results become official, and thus nullify the recall, since the elections is specifically to recall him. His Lt. Governor would then be Governor, DiFi could retire and Newsome could be named as her replacement, thus rubbing it in the faces of the Reichwingers funding this farce.

How stupid is that? Why are Dems so lame at turning out? It's a source of constant amazement to me. They talk about everything in apocalyptic terms and then can't seem to put down the bong and get off the couch long enough to take care of business.

Weird.

It seem to me like the Oval Office is the only thing they are interested in, and they ignore everything else.

I would suggest that a lot of Dems are not as tuned into the news and ways to steal power as are the republiCONS. From polling, many people in CA didn't even know about the recall until their ballot showed up in the mail. I think many of them feel it's in the bag for Newsome and so are not taking it seriously; after all, Newsome won 62% of the vote almost two years ago and has done a great job with the economy and COVID. So the way to counteract this naked power grab if polling continues to be within the margin of error is for Newsome to resign before results are final, thus saving CA from being governed by Stephen Miller's political tutor. Also, the Dems need to change the recall law, the number of signatures required is far too low if the GQP is willing to pay for them, and the fact that Newsome could lose with 49.9% of the vote, but an insane whack job could win with as little as ten or 15% of the vote is incredibly anti-democratic! Besides, I suspect if the recall is successful, Dems will immediately recall the winner and Newsome would win, because he would be allowed on the ballot.

Because that's how mob Democracy is. Not like our Republic form of government. Mob democracies like to have a figure head. They dont care about local politics. Just one voice from on high that can mandate their ideology. ---- everyone else.

Also, the Dems need to change the recall law

Why only "Dems"? Dems arent the only ones in California you know. See, it's thinking like yours that make civil war possible.

Stop thinking you are the only people in the country and start seeing what other's are thinking.
