Scientific Evidence!

A common theme from the complaints about the Recall Janice Daniels effort from those who call themselves Conservatives is that the recall is all LEFT.

Anyone who supports it must be a Liberal.
Anyone who doesn't support the Mayor must be a Democrat.
Anyone who doesn't agree with one of them is surely bordering on Socialism.

And some of their reasoning?

They haven't YET seen a Recall sign in a yard with a Republican candidate...BUT THEY HAVE SEEN SOME RECALL SIGNS IN YARDS WITH DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE SIGNS!  GASP!

I mean...what more proof do you NEED that the Recall MUST be a left-leaning operation?  Surely every single one of the over 9,000 signatures collected represents a Democratic resident of Troy!

Never mind that those of us who collected those signatures were told by many a staunch Republican that they supported the recall...heck, some of those collecting signatures were the staunchest Republicans I've ever met!

ANYWAY...I digress.  Tonight I have for you SOLID PROOF that the Recall is NOT a completely left-leaning effort.



Of course...I now predict that supporters of Daniels will say that Knollenberg must not be a REAL Republican because anyone who supports the Recall wouldn't support a real Republican...

LATE BREAKING UPDATE...

Clearly it's looking worse for Daniels.  Now a supporter of the Republican presidential candidate has shown his/her loyalties.


RESTORE INTEGRITY AND SANITY TO TROY...RECALL JANICE DANIELS.

  1. More evidence . . . the fiscal conservatives in this house want Janice recalled. Just because you are conservative, doesn't mean you want to be represented by idiots.

  2. Anonymous, very well said. I, too, am a fiscal conservative and am engaged in this recall. DON'T GUESS, VOTE YES - RECALL JANICE - IT'S THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR TROY!

  3. In all fairness, maybe the Knollenberg supported got confused by the similarity of the signs and inadvertently put up a YES sign!

    1. So you're saying that real Republicans aren't smart enough to know the difference between yes and no?

  4. Maybe it was a setup by a liberal. Make up your own facts - photoshop

    1. I took the picture. It was no set-up. The home is in the NW corner of Troy, Avondale School District. Happy hunting!

    2. Afraid to be more specific on location because it doesn't exist

  5. As a conservative I have spoken to many other conservative leaning folks who share my support of the recall; I'm assuming the comment about confusion leading to putting up a "Yes -Recall" sign was made tongue in cheek. Any thought that Republicans can't see the ineptness of the Mayor and will refuse to do what's right simply because of party allegiance would be wrong.
    This is a non-partisan issue. I've noticed numerous homes where the only political sign posted is a pro-recall sign. Common sense would indicate that some of those folks are Republicans.

  6. This is Anonymous at 10:58. In case there is any confusion, yes it was meant to be tongue in cheek--a joke regarding the obvious attempt to confuse voters on the part of supporters of the mayor. I am glad to hear there are people of all points on the political spectrum who recognize the need to recall the mayor.

  7. People who voted for Janice signed the petitions for the Recall. Talk about buyer's remorse.

  8. Hooray Sue, You got me. BAZINGA! (to borrow from Sheldon Cooper, big bang theory.. science LOL).

    Just to clarify though, my thoughts were that I haven't seen a recall yes side alongside a sign supporting a republican candidate. NOT that this somehow indicated the political inclunation of the recall. Now, this has been debunked. I saw similar combinations myself. I stand 'corrected'. TMB.

    1. You weren't the only one to voice it, though...and there IS a prevailing thought that the recall is the vehicle of a Liberal group.

      So just so we're clear...it ain't! :) I added another picture, too, for good measure...LOL

    2. Double BAZINGA! :)

  9. Who cares what those people think. They have been exposed. The mayor has drawn attention to their nonsense and they are understandibly scared. They aren't under the radar any more, and those who come from her extremist side of things will regret that Janice has dragged them into the light.

  10. Yes, I see Janice Daniels as a very poor representative of the conservative cause. What good does her voting do if it is always against the majority? A true leader would be pragmatic and work for compromise. I see CM Slater doing this time and time again, for examples, on the transit center (scaled down to $6.5 million, getting construction manager at risk in contract) and on the disputed clause of the distracted driving ordinance (OK, study team to make it more specific). When you're between a rock and a hard place with opposing sides you need to come up with a common sense solution that gets SOME consensus all around. That's good governance, not "my way or the highway" attitude.
    I'd almost want to keep JD in office because she is a bungler of the Tea Party cause, but the risk is too great, plus I'm tired of coughing up my coffee when I hear of the next crazy thing that she has done to take away from the business of the city.

  11. I've had people tell me they like that the Mayor is a fiscal conservative. My response is that she mouths the words, but has no ability to create or affect change. I think we are entitled to someone who not only watches spending, but is smart enough to make a difference. We deserve more than a talking head who has no idea what she is talking about.

  12. Sadly, I don't believe a lot of people are aware of what happened during the budget sessions. If I was a supporter of hers, I would have been VERY disappointed in her lack of impact on the budget. Rather than identify all the "problems" with the budget, she sat quietly while every once else worked on the budget. Towards the end of the last session, CM Tietz asked if anyone had any concerns about the budget. As much as he gets criticized for some things, he was trying to establish consensus amongst the group. The Mayor said nothing at that time, and then turned around and voted "no". The only thing that accomplished was to grandstand to her supporters. But it did nothing to improve the budget.

    So if she can't lead or influence to bring about the change she touts as being needed, then why is she there?

  13. Are there any polls or statistical data which would indicate how this recall vote is likely to go? I know that she was narrowly elected in 2010, a conservative wave election, so that alone would not bode well for her. But she is the incumbent now, so it is difficult to tell how much of a threat the recall actually is.

  14. I have watched some local pundits on tv and they seem to indicate that if the recall came to be, which it did, they would bet she would be on her way out.

    What is on our side is the fact that this is a national election and many people will be out voting, whereas the last election the turnout was very small and many were not interested in getting out to vote. I do believe that her supporters will be out to vote, but she has also lost a lot of that base support. People voted for her in the past not really understanding the candidate.
