    Prop 13 was enacted because the State had a huge surplus in 1978, after his first term as gov.  When he left office things weren't so good, but that was because of the 1982 recession.  He was actually a pretty good governor, and most of the stuff in her ad is inaccurate at best and dishonest at worst.

    Your new Democratic Party: Billions for the bankster boys and not one dime for abortions. Even if it's your dime.

      I think I mis-spoke a bit up there. It's not that the ads are true and accurate, but that she picks certain points that, in themselves, may be accurate but do not show the whole picture.

      That is, claiming that Brown slashed spending on whatever, which might be true in itself but is misleading in that it neglects to point out that, due to Prop. 13 or the recession, state income was down and the legislature offered Brown a budget that was lower, so some things ended up being cut. It's not that he was necessarily leading the way and calling for more cuts, but that he signed the legislative budget package that contained cuts.

      You are right: Inaccurate or dishonest when you look at the big picture.

      I'd rather the bluefin survive and BP die off.
