“Fletcher is appealing to some voters because his message can shift depending on the crowd that’s listening. But when it comes to making tough decisions, his actions don’t match his rhetoric.”

“San Diego voters need to remember that Nathan Fletcher votes like a Republican, fundraises with Republicans, and holds up some of the most divisive conservative figures in the country as his political heroes.” Read More

“One of the best ways to know how an elected official will behave in the future is to see how they have behaved in the past. During his tenure in the California State Assembly Nathan has held the line against new taxes, fought for pension reform…Nathan has shown the toughness to stand-up to labor. He has been tested in combat as a US Marine Corps veteran, and he is a trusted conservative."

-Karl Rove

(George W. Bush Political Advisor)

"There is a technical phrase for someone who can give this speech and then declare himself an independent 17 days later: bullshit artist."


"Rather than challenge the rich or his friends in the corporate world to ante up, Fletcher supported a budget designed to trample the weak and politically powerless.  Hence his life service to education is bogus. Fletcher’s aforementioned support of an “all cuts budget” is not a display of political bravery or “independence,” it is a shameful display of pandering to the lowest impulses of the contemporary right.”
