Kurzner Sees The Writing On The Wall

Rumors abound that good guy (but political lightweight) Phil Kurzner has pulled out of the race for Insurance Commissioner, saving billionaire candidate Steve Poizner from having to expend the resources to crush him in the Primaries, leaving him more to do battle with Bustamante come November.

Analysis: Only move for Phil. Save face, try to broker a deal. Great news for Poizner, who gets to save up for Cruz.

Poizner blackmailed Kurzner to force him out. You really think Phil was planning to drop out with a fundraiser scheduled with Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman coming up as well as the state convention?

Poizner is willing to engage in these Watergate Plumber type tactics because he has no shame. Come to think of it, he doesn't have any political philosophy or ethics.

If Dr. Phil couldn't take the heat, he belongs in the kitchen. OUT!

Yes, we have the courageous example of Steve Poizner who blames his wife for his giving $10K to the Gore Recount Committee. Did she also cause him to give to John Kerry, the DNC in 2000, and to Gore directly?

Gee, do you think there will be a problem generating GOP turnout with a ticket that includes Arnold and Steve Poizner? Can you say debacle?

When was the last time a "Conservative" won statewide in California?

Conservatives are rarely nominated statewide, so that's an unfair premise. The last US Senate conservative loss was Bruce Herschensohn in 1992. Republicans have been pretty much been nominating moderates and liberals since.

Matt Fong, Dan Lungren, Bill Simon.....

There have been plenty of conservatives since 1992 who have gone down in major flames.

Poizner isn't a conservative, that's a given. But he's not really even a moderate Republican. If he had his way, Al Gore would have tipped control of the Supreme Court. He worked to undermine Prop. 13, opposed the Bush tax cuts and the Iraq War.

It gains the Republican Party nothing to nominate someone who has a history of opposing our Republican President and is on the record opposing our core values. So he's rich - so what?

Matt Fong: Not Conservative

Dan Lungren: Anti-2nd Amendment and Pro Asset Forfeiture

Bill Simon: Conservative, but a novice at being a candidate
