The Wall Street Journal offers a very good summary of what liberals have done to California over the years. It highlights, for me at least, my point (and others’) about voter accountability. The problem with electing a moderate Republican like Schwarzenegger is that he will not change course enough. Rather, like Ike with the New Deal, he will make the mess that is California bi-partisan. Does anyone think he’ll be able to rollback just the laws Davis has passed in the last 90 days, let alone the more entrenched programs of California liberalism? Is there any suggestion — anywhere — that he would be even moderately inclined to pursue such a course of action? Or will he take the path of short-term like-ability and become the Bloomberg of California?
