The Republican candidate for California Governor in 2010, Meg Whitman speaks with reporters on her dismal voting record over the past three decades. This took place just a couple of days before the San Francisco Chronicle reported that “Whitman contributed $4,000 to Senator Barbara Boxer in the 2004 reelection campaign — and Whitman endorsed Boxer as a part of Technology Leaders for Boxer”. The endorsement and contribution was also confirmed by Boxer aide Rose Kapolczynski. Whitman touted Boxer as a “dynamic and courageous leader” on the tech front. Boxer was then pitted against GOP former Secretary of State Bill Jones. Is the issue of Whitman’s voting record an attack or a legitimate issue?

So many polls this week for one little state… OK, one very populated state with a lot of square mileage. Where do Californian’s stand this week on a number of issues? Thanks to a very busy Field Poll week, here is a glimpse:
President Obama: The President has a 60% job approval among California residents this month compared to his 56% approval nationwide. Although that sounds good for our President, his California approval numbers have fallen from 65% six months ago.
Afghanistan: Californians are split on what President Obama should do next in Afghanistan. 33% of California residents want the President to increase the amount of troops, 16% say keep the troop numbers exactly the same and 37% say reduce the number of troops.
Swine Flu: Californians are split on being whether or not to be concerned over the H1N1 virus (swine flu). 51% of all state residents are either concerned or very concerned. Latinos are the most concerned population at 62%. Overall, only 46% of California males show any concern. However, 72% of all Californians would like to receive the swine flu vaccine for themselves. When asked how confident residents are that the state public health system could respond effectively to an outbreak of the H1N1 virus, Californian’s have a 67% confidence rate in the system.

Every Tuesday morning we bring you Gov. Schwarzenegger’s weekly radio address. This week we just didn’t have time to bring you the sixteen minute speech in its entirety. By utilizing the new website we can now watch this speech for ourselves.
The speech was delivered at last weeks “Governor’s Global Climate Summit 2” in Los Angeles which wasn’t well talked about in the Motherlode.
The Republican Governor brags how well ahead of the curve California has been in combating “global warming”. He claims in the video that President Obama has copied many of the stringent environmental restrictions that Arnold has already implemented for California .
Schwarzenegger’s lone legislation is not enough… the Governor demands that citizens and community leaders take action and start a green revolution to combat the “indisputable climate change”.
Republicans who funded, backed and voted for Schwarzenegger will probably enjoy watching this almost alarming global warming speech, but I think Democrats will also find several sections of this non-partisan speech that they can agree on and perhaps adapt to their own agenda:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)– A city official has asked the PGA Tour to remind Michael Jordan that he can’t smoke cigars at Harding Park during the Presidents Cup.
Jordan, inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame last month, is serving as an honorary assistant to U.S. captain Fred Couples. A photo of Jordan smoking his cigar published in the San Francisco Chronicle caught the attention of city officials.
Harding Park is a public facility, and smoking is banned.
“I’ve already sent an e-mail to the PGA tour director,” Recreation and Park general manager Phil Ginsburg told the newspaper. “It was a gentle nudge reminding them that smoking is illegal and that we would appreciate their support.”
