In the California governor race, an 18-year-old interview with Democrat candidate and previous governor Jerry Brown provides a rare glimpse into the cynicism of a leftist career politician. Watch his amazing admission and read the transcript below.

Will California voters really elect an aging leftist ideologue who has admitted that what he promised when voters elected him as governor in 1975 was all a lie? Or will they vote for Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay, who plans to turn California around?

The transcript (via The Blast):

Interviewer: You said something a moment ago that I have to follow up on and I have to draw you out on. You said you don’t have to lie anymore now that you’re not a politician. What did you lie about when you were governor?

Jerry Brown: It’s all a lie. You’re pretending there’s a plan…

Interviewer: What did you lie about?

Jerry Brown: You run for office and the assumption is “Oh, I know what to do”. You don’t. I didn’t have a plan for California. Clinton doesn’t have a plan. Bush doesn’t have a plan.

Interviewer: You said you had a plan for California and you lied because you didn’t have a plan?

Jerry Brown: You say you’re going to lower taxes, you’re going to put people to work, you’re gonna improve the schools, you’re going to stop crime… crime is up, schools are worse, taxes are higher. I mean be real!

The most important thing you can do in the next 48 hours is to vote against the tide of Obama socialism that has washed over the United States in the past two years. Also, bring any family members or friends who share your concern for America to the polls.

The following video is a good summary of why we need to defeat the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Democrats on Nov. 2:

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria gives a great demonstration of what’s wrong with the left-wing media. He advocates more spending and more taxes by government. His argument for a national sales tax is that other countries have such a tax. The idea that the government must direct innovation is so ingrained in his mind that it doesn’t even occur to him that the private sector can be the engine of innovation like it has in the past if the government just gets out of the way. This is what’s wrong with America’s self-anointed intellectual elite.

Former two-term Florida Governor Jeb Bush introduces Rick Scott at a campaign event. Also introduced by the popular former governor are Adam Putnam running for Commissioner of Agriculture, Pam Bondi running for Attorney General and Jeff Atwater running for Chief Financial Officer.

Jeb Bush also recently commented on desperate Charlie Crist who is going to lose big to Marco Rubio in the race for US Senate from Florida:

Democrats facing defeat continue the “voters are morons” theme in talking about the election. Here is what Massachusetts Senator John Kerry said (via Hot Air):

“It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,” Kerry said. “We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.”

If this was Kerry’s attempt at closing the “enthusiasm gap” his fellow Democrats – the ones whose names are on the ballot Tuesday – can’t be pleased.
