|Former Gov. Gray Davis did get a bad rap, 11 years later|
his legacy still haunts voters.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
(1). Remember the freak show of would be "governors" during the recall who wanted to oust Davis? Beyond the predictable immature musings offered by those who planned to vote for Gary Coleman, Larry Flynt, and Angelyne, a number of students said they planned to vote for ArnoldSchwarzenegger. *** The California electricity crisis, also known as the Western U.S. Energy Crisis of 2000and 2001, was a situation in which the United States state of California had a shortage ofelectricity supply caused by market manipulations, illegal shutdowns of pipelines by the Texas energy consortium Enron, and capped retail electricity prices. The state suffered from multiple large-scale blackouts, one of the state's largest energy companies collapsed, and the economic fall-out greatly harmed Governor Gray Davis's standing. (2). I am misapplying the word "jerk" for Arnold . Don't get me wrong I like him as an actor , but as a middle road politician as he wanted the public to view him we was god awful , he challenged the legislature , cut education ( although the money went out of the classrooms to upper management in public schools ) his approach gave the GOP the name as the Party of NO compromise that now beguiles Washington D. C. and President Obama. # added note . I remember Gray Davis for having overdue and late budgets , the California legislature played this game for years missing budget deadlines , SOME TIMES MONTHS OVER-DUE!
