Update: Today is also the big “One Nation” march on Washington sponsored by Big Labor. We wonder if the “One” in “One Nation” refers to Barack the loser one Obama? Wouldn’t be the first time the OD party (formerly known as the Democratic Party of FDR and Hillary Clinton) and allies sucked up to Mess-iah.
Alright we give up. We’ll put off the next installment of “Mistake in ’08” because it appears all anyone wants to talk about is the California race and the nanny/maid/worker.
Here’s the video of the battle last night:
Tonight there will be a debate: Whitman Versus Brown
“Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman had hoped Saturday’s debate in the heart of California’s Central Valley would showcase her economic credentials and help siphon the support of independent and Hispanic votes away from Democrat Jerry Brown.
Instead, Whitman finds herself on the defensive and seeking to regain momentum with those voters after a tumultuous week in which she was forced to explain how she had an illegal immigrant housekeeper on the payroll for nine years and, according to her, didn’t know it.
She also is addressing allegations from the housekeeper’s attorney that she and her husband should have suspected the worker’s status because of a Social Security Administration letter mailed to their home in 2003.
The billionaire former chief executive of eBay has worked hard to court independents and Hispanics, who are crucial to the campaign of any Republican running in a state in which Democrats hold a 13.4 percentage point edge among registered voters. She has trained a large share of her campaign account — $119 million of it from her personal fortune — on the Central Valley, which has been hit hard by the recession and is filled with communities where unemployment afflicts a quarter of the population or more.
The forced acknowledgment by Whitman and her husband this week that they fired Nicky Diaz Santillan when she confessed to being an illegal immigrant in June 2009 has thrown off Whitman’s controlled campaign messages about reviving the economy, controlling state spending and reforming education as the candidates head into their second debate. The forum at California State University, Fresno is hosted by Spanish-language network Univision and targets a Hispanic audience.“
“If I were Gloria, I would be all red.”
Who wins? The Nanny or Meg Whitman?; Meg Whitman or Jerry Brown?
