No Shot Across the Bow for Me

I voted for the ouster of CA Gov. Gray Davis and his replacement by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnie promised big things, like staying in touch with the little guys and not taking money from the big money people. Well, that did not happen. So much for the naïve, neophyte politician of the people. The Gov. badly misjudged the voters when he selected his four must-do ballot measures. Did he think that all of those people who crossed party lines to elect him were going just jump on his bandwagon without any critical thinking. And, did he think that he could lie to the public and all the Republicans would blindly line-up with him? Well, think again.

And no, just because I no longer support Gov. Schwarzenegger, don’t make the mistake of thinking that this is a shot fired across the President’s bow like Democrats are crowing in other parts of the country. The Governor fell on his face all by himself, and that does not detract from the President.
