People must've forgotten that Abel is a prevaricating slimeball who will say or do anything to get elected. He can pretend that he is a moderate, but he only has been when it benefitted him personally. Remember this from the fight to get him appointed to Lt. Gov:
His voting record is terrible.

I'm not a fan of Hodge's apparent prevarication and trying to thread the mod needle, but Jackson really needs to come clean about her work on behalf of PXP to start the first new offshore oil drilling project in state waters sinec the SB oil spill. I don't think it speaks well that she was fooled into supporting and advocating for that unenforceable agreement opposed by every environmental group outside of Santa Barbra and voted down by Chiang, Garamendi, and then the Democrats in the Assembly.

Schneider is completely out of her mind. She wants to put sales tax on a ballot that will include Gov Brown's sales tax and two other income tax related measures. What a putz.

Hopefully California voters will recognize that term limits have failed us. Hope to see Nava in the State Senate in 2012.

Whoa look at Das's hair! Looks like he is on track to be the next Lloyd Levine in the legislature. All he needs now is a checkered suit.

Does anyone really care what ms. Krop says anymore?I thought it was pretty much established that she was played by PXP and took all of the local enviros for a ride.Despite deepwater horizon she was still disappointed when the governor decided new drilling off the sb coast was a bad idea. This lady wanted to drill less than 3 miles off our coast even after the gulf spill. Seriously.

Since all the rigs are going to be removed by 2030 it is a good thing that the T-Ridge proposal wasn't approved.
It's interesting that EDC is taking an anti oil position on this one. They must have some new client. Could be bottom trawlers or maybe the firms that would be contracted to remove the rigs. Does anybody know?

It is weird that you say that the mailer was "accusing" Das of supporting the first new offshore oil drilling project in 40 years. Das does support it, there is not need to "accuse" him of it.
This is the only reason he got into the race. This is what distinguishes him from Jordan. Why should any of his supporters be upset that his repeatedly stated support for PXP is in a mailer. It would be like sending out a mailer on Jordan "accuising" her of supporting stricter limits on marijuana dispensaries.
Seriously, what is the big deal about the mailer?
On Political Sludge Match

Thank you Mr. Mason for pointing this out.Even with the supposed "end dates" more oil was going to be pumped through a pipeline than what would've otherwise occurred. EDC keeps saying "slant drilling will allow them to continue indefinitely." Slant drilling to where? Certainly not into California waters. If you don't let them have T-ridge they will run out of oil between 2022 and 2025. If they could slant drill to oil fields around Irene they would already be doing it. Unlike Mr. Williams, Ms. Jordan read the reports and paid attention to details.
Mr. Williams, on the other hand, can't be bothered by facts and details even when they put the coast at risk. This is not the type of leader we want representing us. Williams has already shown us that he will just take whatever position is politically expedient at the time.
On Oil Issues Forth

"Why does everyone keep ignoring that this plan set to phase out existing drilling off the coast of SB!?"
Well, because that is pretty much irrelevant.
MMS projects that platform Irene is going to run out of economically recoverable oil between 2018 and 2022. The point perdenales field is estimated to run out by 2025. All this deal did was trade some stuff to give PXP access to thousands and thousands more barrels of oil and put an artificial and unenforceable end date on it. That is all in the Santa Barbara County EIR as well as numerous other documents from MMS and the State Lands Commission.
Giving PXP the new oil with an unenforceable end date would've just let drilling go on for at least another 30 years.
Das and the rest were duped. It just demonstrates poor judgement on Das's part. The last thing we need is a sucker representing us in the Assembly.
It was a dumb plan, get over it.
