Obviously, I do not live in California, but I would have to hear some of his issues and beliefs before I make a decision as to whether I'd like him or dislike him.

Needless to say, I disliked how Giuliani used his 15 minutes of fame with 9/11 to pull Bloomberg to a victory in the NYC mayoral race, but, from what I've read thus far, I would probably quite like him. So, there certainly have been a lot of surprises in this profession...

13% Of the United States economy comes from California. I saw this on the ABC news tonight. This election is pretty important.

My biggest fear is that Schwartzenegger will get votes solely on his celebrity and not on his issues.

i think they got it wrong

13% of the U S population is in CA


I believe a lot more than 13% of US economy/ GNP is from CA.

Fuck, this recall is happening because career politicians have failed us.
So how can you blame an outsider for trying to be governor, how much worse can Arnold do?
I personally think he might get the job done and he's a moderate republican, definitely not a right winger, fuck lets give the guy a chance.

Yeah, on the news here they also briefly mentioned him (as being an entertainment star (well, would you call that kind of wrestling a sport?) who became a governor). So I was wondering: Was he any good as a governor?
I knew he was, but I never heard whether he was a good governor or not. So could you (or anyone else from Minnesota) enlighten me?

C ya!

P.S. ThatGuy, I don't think you want an angry 'Governator' cleaning your house. At least, not as long as there are people there...

Of course, while we're at it, why not Angelyne? She's running for governor too.

Hear Me Now and Believe Me Later

August 7, 2003


Here me now and believe me later, my friends: all these conservative orgasms over Arnold Schwarzenegger are - like the "Gorbasms" liberals experienced over Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev - fake. I know that (R) next to Schwarzenegger's name excites the White House, but his own words prove he's not a conservative. I call this "The Hollywood Syndrome," and it happens every time some actor-type says anything even remotely conservative. I'm not trying to cold shower anybody here, but don't look to anyone in Hollywood to validate your political ideas.



The American Prowler's George Neumayr detailed Arnold's politics in his article "Here's Arnold!" Quote: "[H]e spoke in generalities and banalities about his plans for the state. To the extent that he said anything, he sounded not like a fiscal conservative but a moderate Democrat. He said that he wanted businesses to come back to California so that the state government could collect enough tax revenues to provide social programs. This is the sort of obtuse comment middle-of-the-road Democrats always make, forgetting that businesses are leaving the state because they are tired of paying high taxes for those big government social programs."

More: "He has told the press he is 'very liberal' about social programs, supports abortion and homosexual adoption, and advocates 'sensible gun controls.' His entree into politics last year was a proposition Democrats endorsed because it raised state spending for what amounted to state babysitting - before-school and after-school programs that cost the state up to $455 million a year. He has complained openly about the party's conservatism.... Talk magazine described him as 'impatient' with the religious right....

[H]e expressed disgust with the Republicans who impeached Clinton. 'That was another thing I will never forgive the Republican Party for,' he said. 'We spent one year wasting time because there was a human failure. I was ashamed to call myself a Republican during that period.'"


Does this sound like "the Next Reagan," as some people are calling Arnold? Hardly. This guy may be the next actor elected governor of California, but that's where the similarity between him and Ronaldus Magnus end.


Arnold's name has been thrown around in GOP circle's for years.
The power brokers have always believed he was electable in state wide election. The problem was that he would never win a primary where only Republicans voted.


Like Eminem say's

You only got one shot,
this is Arnold's only shot.

I have posted before that I was a fairly regular listener to Rush in the past.

I forget who, but someone in here said I was not telling the truth.

I am not a regular listener now. I do tune in from time to time.

Most of my radio listening is tuned into public radio.


There is a real good program on public radio called



Speaking of Faith <------ here

their programs are available on realaudio

yes

Simon says, "I quit"

The other major Republican in the race is McClintock. If the polls indicate the vote will split and put Dem. Bustamante in office, he will most likely quit also. This will probably happen nearer the election. He is a true conservative, he will whip up the base and make sure they are likely to go to the polls.
