Joe and Kamala are going to be campaigning for beleaguered California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is facing a contentious recall election next month. Now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has “[her] own operation” to defeat the recall effort.
The Daily Caller reports:
“We respect it,” Pelosi said Thursday of the recall effort to oust Newsom, “But we do not like it, and we will defeat it,” Fox News reported. “I want everybody to get out the vote,” Pelosi added. “I have my own operation working to get out the vote [and] making calls to defeat the recall of our governor.”
The Globe reported President Joe Biden announced this week that he is now officially backing California Governor Gavin Newsom in the recall election, one of the largest possible endorsements that the beleaguered Governor could hope to get in the election.
But since late June, Governor Newsom’s margin of victory has slipped from a double digit lead to only a narrow 48%-46% lead, with his overall popularity slipping away below 50% for the first time since January when COVID-19 new case figures were still very high, from the November/December 2020 spike in cases.
The Globe readers weren’t impressed with Biden’s pronouncement. “Biden states Gov. Gavin is building back the economy – the same guy that shut down businesses for 15 months, is the best guy to continue the job! I guess that is code for he has not fully carried out our plan to weaken the economy,” one reader commented.
Pelosi’s rationale is equally peculiar and distorted as Biden’s: “He’s been a great governor, and I’d like to see this, shall we say, nuisance — but it’s part of what you can do, so we respect that — but we have to also get out the vote,” Pelosi said. “Reject the recall. It’s not good for you. It’s not good for children and other living things,” she added, mentioning Newsom’s “breakthrough” policies, like free school meals, Daily Caller reported.
Free school meals are important to many low-income kids, but Newsom didn’t exactly invent the program – they’ve been offered since 1946 when the National School Lunch Act in 1946 was passed. And what’s a “breakthrough” policy Speaker Pelosi?
According to Nancy Pelosi this grassroots recall is a “nuisance,” because it’s being used against a Democrat Governor from San Francisco.
Pelosi says the recall is “not good for children and other living things,” what ever that means. Is she referring to all of the woodland critters burned alive in California’s wildfires?
According to Pelosi, Newsom is a good governor because he gives away free food to hungry children. That’s the best she could come up with to justify not recalling him.
Pelosi’s statements were not so cleverly disguised to mean she has no intention of allowing the people of California to decide this matter.
But Pelosi is hardly revered in California outside of San Francisco County, and the people are pretty burned out with the undue influence San Francisco Democrats have in the state, and in Washington, D.C.
