Not the rank and file of the GOP-but the 'inner sanctum' of the state GOP, as the article calls them.

Richard H. Smith: A Republican "Plot" to Bankrupt California?
Too freaking funny! But not as funny as people actually believing it. How did that "vast, right wing conspiracy" thing work for ya last time?

Quite agreed. They've done a commendable job of tanking the state all on their own!

Now that I have put on my tin foil hat, I get it now. It's those evil Republicans (along with Haliburton, Chaney, the Bilderbergers, etc.) that are conniving and scheming to bring California to its knees.

I suppose having the Dems running the state legislature for the last 40 years has nothing to do with it.

Naturally, that fact is conveniently ignored by the Dem rah-rah section.

Nothing like the "truth" from a Political Democratic Hack like Dick Smith.
More drivel from the left.
