Need opinions regarding Gov. Groper. Where is this guy heading?
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 05:14 PM by Miss_Bevey
What's your take on Schwartznegger's behavior regarding California's budget and that "girlie-men" remark? I know that Jesse Ventura was thought to be a bull in a china shop, used to getting his own way. I think the Scwartznegger's next two years will be a pout fest and instead of running in 2006, he'll pick up his toys and go home. Any deja vu here?

2. I lived in MN while Jesse was Gov.
It seemed that the ONLY special interest that had his attention was Jessie Ventura, Inc. He didn't have time to bleed or lead. Spent a lot of time promoting his latest ventures.

Both parties were PO'ed that he'd won and tried not to work with him at all. He had a former teacher as his Lt. Governor and neither was able to advance education issues. IIRC there was a DFL majority in both houses so that was the only way anything got done.

Arnhald at least has a party infastructure to fall back on when the going gets tough.

3. I was watching when he made that "girlie" remark...
and he was really wound up, and at one point, with his gestures, I flashed back to a few of Hitler's political rallies that I've seen on film.

4. 1-Terminator!
The Girlie Scwartz will be a dissipating flatulence in a padded room come next election. He is such an embarrassment here in Cali that it's not even funny anymore!
This bi-product of metabolic steroid abuse continues to rely on his one line formula that brought him success in the fantasy world. His trouble is that he cannot differentiate between fantasy and reality. The reality is Awnold, your not intelligent enough to handle reality. You would be better served if you were the governor of the planet Stupidtron, or that place that you keep referring to "Caliphonia", where ever the hell that maybe!

5. Presidency, Perhaps?
I've been thinking that if in the unlikely (and ungodly) scenario of another Republican government, we could see an amendment enabling foreign-born citizens to run for president, thereby setting up a 2008 run for Arnold.

7. Like too many Republican males, Ahnold thinks with his cock
instead of with his brain - probably blew those out years ago.

:evilgrin:

8. He's an incompetent shrivelled coward who likes to take the easy way out.
Cut education, cut social services (both of which leads to higher CRIME rates), doesn't reform property tax, won't raise the taxes on those who can afford it (which is a lot of people out there), won't cut CORPORATE WELFARE.

He is a gutless spineless coward whose overuse of steroids shrunk his brain as well as his testicles.

9. Ahnuld is a White House attempt to conquer CA for the Republicans.
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 07:39 PM by JohnOneillsMemory
He's living walking propaganda of the mindset linquist George Lakoff lineated in his book 'Moral Politcs' which explains how conservatives have been changing this country with image propaganda.

The main idea is that we see our whole species as if we were a family and the Strong Father figure (strong, resolute, disciplined) represents the personality we want in leaders. You know, John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, Adolph Hitler.

That's why there are no humane apologies or admissions of error from this neocon cabal or Ahnuld since he got 'elected' (lots of Diebold problems in the recall voting.)

Ahnuld built his muscles up and became the human meat at the center of special effects movies. He is 'worth' millions of dollars. He was a Hollywood industry unto himself and was protected from the consequences of repeatedly molesting women at work.

So Mr. Atlas Money Bags Celebrity with the ambition to marry into the Kennedy dynasty is the perfect front man for TV nation know-nothings to see representing the Republicans in this Democraticly held 5th largest economy in the world.

It's all image and psychological warfare to conquer California's electoral votes by making Repubs likable to the ignorant. But he is scum and a tool.

I despise him because I moved to the SF Bay area to live in Progressive America. This fascist front man has invaded my sanctuary.
There's a 'Terminator' pinball machine at my laundromat with my governor saying things like "nice shot!" and "game ov-uh!"
