I listed his problems.
Imdb.com shows he has no upcoming acting roles.

Arnold didn't vow to give up acting and he won.

what has he done? what foreign experience does he have?
What more did he have to do except establish himself as a solid Republican?

What foreign experience do Hillary or Obama have? Romney or Rudy?

Arnold did make a big statement that he would give acting during his term, in fact he turned down some "big roles" according to his statement.

If that's all it takes for you, then by all means vote for him. I would hope it takes more for a president, but given the general voting populace I know it's hard to ask for more.

Every candidate, Dem and Rep at this point is toeing their party line and appealing to their base. The next year of campaigning will show who has "it" and who doesn't.

No my point is that some of these canidates have actually tried introducing legislature making changes, but not him...

Sorry you can't see that.

well, Richardson has it in droves, but Hillary is on the Armed Services Committee

i do agree, though, "experience" isn't as important as good judgement and good advisors, something Bush lacks in droves. and it seems to me that Fred has about as much curiosity about the world as Bush, which is to say none. and i'd contrast this to Obama, who does strike me as the most thoughtful of all the candidates, almost too professorial.

also, none of the Dems are running as far left as all the Reps are running to the right. you haven't seen a single Dem backtrack on a previously held position -- with the big exception being the 2002 vote on the Iraq war -- in the way that Rudy, Mitt, and Fred are claiming that they were actually pro-life before they were pro-choice and are now pro-life again.

Do you people ever actually think? You just said you'll support him, right after you said you don't know what he stands for as a presidential candidate.

I posted a link that clearly shows he is a solid Republican. Since he hasn't announced yet, sure, I don't have a complete understanding of his platform. But I have no reason to believe it won't be in accordance with his voting record as a Senator.

"You people"-- I'd like to see the FYM reaction to gays or minorities being refered to this way.

Perhaps "you people" was a bit strong. Perhaps. But I stand by the rest of what I said. Fred has no plans, no recommendations or solutions or proposals. He's only got his Bible so far.

He hasn't announced yet so obviously he hasn't had a chance to outline his agenda.

When/where has he been invoking Christianity or the Bible?

Are you sure about that?

You say that like the war vote was a minor thing. I would say the war vote was a BIG, BIG exception. You're wrong though when you say that no candidate has backtracked. Remember Richardson getting flustered at that gay convention?

I love film and I see 60-70 new films a year. Do I think that generally Hollywood promotes a liberal agenda? Yes. But that doesn't mean I believe everyone associated with Hollywood shares those sentiments.

But wouldn't her support for the war make you like her even more?
