    Reminded me of Biden vs. Palin, only Jerry Brown's gloves were definitely OFF.
    Would like to hear other opinions.
    If you think Meg Whitman won this debate, please give specific examples why.

    Come on you California hubbers. Didn't ANYONE watch last night's debate?
    Ok, even if you didn't watch the debate, did you hear that Meg Whitman employed an illegal alien for 9 years?
    Must have been during the time she didn't vote or pay much attention to anything around her other than raking in dough from her affiliation with Goldman Sachs.
    Tsk tsk.

      Okay, I admit it!  I watched it.  I thought Meg sounded like a robot, an informercial, too rehearsed, and she looked like a mannequin.  I didn't think I was going to vote for her anyhow, just because of her voting record-uh, lack of one-and watching the debate last night confirmed my vote for Jerry Brown. 

      I liked him, alot--and his views are more in line with mine anyhow.

    I didn't watch the debate, either, but there's no way in hell I would vote for Whitman anyway. smile

    Any suspicions why she's running? She seems far too cynical to be interested in the public good, and she is richer than Croesus already. My guess is that she's paving a future in politics for her worthless sons, much like GHW Bush did for his.

    At least Whitman's not a Tea Tard in case she wins. If I lived in California, I would vote for Jerry. The last Republican I voted for was Willam E. Milliken who was elected governor of Michigan back in the 1960s. He supported Obama in 2008, but he's supporting the GOP candidate for governor this year, Rick Snyder, multi-millionaire former CEO of Gateway Computers. He's not a Tea Tard either. The right-wing loonies killed each other off.

      LOL @ tea tard!  Why haven't I heard of this before?

        They object to "Tea Bagger," so I came up with a less controversial alternative.

      Shouldn't you be teaching people "to respect and treat others with kindness"?

      This is a perfect example of why I like liberals.

      Hypocrisy drips from them like sweat.

        Do you preferr "Tea Bagger?" Michelle Bachman, and some of the recent Tea Party loonies nominated for the Senate don't deserve anyone's respect let alone election to the Senate. The GOP is in a state of internal warfare thanks to the Tea Party.

          Like I said, hypocrisy.

          Thats why no one takes liberals serious.

          And why do you care if the GOP is in turmoil?

          Newsflash....

          It won't get Obama reelected.

            "And why do you care if the GOP is in turmoil?"

            I'm watching the ravaging of the GOP by the Tea Party with amusement and also horror that some of the Tea Tards will actually be elected to the Senate and as governors.

              I'm watching you and the rest of the libs implode with a great deal of satisfaction.

              Now go and preach some more love and understanding so we can see how its done.

              Oh, thats right love and understanding as long as people think like you and the rest of the libs.

              For the rest of us, may we burn in hell.

              Liberal logic on display.

        As opposed to conservatives who preach family values between affairs with prostitutes and/or choir boys, fiscal responsibility while rocketing the world toward a second great depression, and judicial restraint before deciding a presidential election...

        Good thing hypocrisy is limited to liberals.

          I don't preach those things.

          I have never seen a conservative on these forums preach those things.

          Would you point to any post by a conservative on these forums preaching this?

          I can point to many hypocritical post from libs on these forums.

          Thank you in advance.

              People who work for a living can't always respond immediately to posts, thanks for your patience.

                I will accept just one little post Ron.

                Take your time.

                You'll need it.

            I've never heard anyone advocate these things. Many of the people you worship do however PRACTICE these things:  Gingrich, Thomas, ...you can Google the rest, you seem to have lots of spare time today.

              I don't worship anyone.

              The difference is Ron I pointed out a particular person on these forums hypocrisy.

              I could point out many more.

              Can you point to a conservative on these forums promoting or practicing the things you mentioned or not?

              If not then what was your point?
