Arnold's campaign slogan is quite ironic.
"They are mad as hell, and they're not going to take it anymore."

It's pure political cynicism. Anyone who's seen Sidney Lumet's masterpiece Network can see that. The film is about a TV news network that regains its ratings by having some guy on the air who does nothing but rant because objective news doesn't appeal to the people. This is a lot like Bill O'Really and Rash Limbaugh, two people who are contributing to Arnold's popularity.

2. Arnold isn't a big win for them
He is prochoice. That is certainly not O'Really's thing. The people who dreamed this recall up thought they could elect someone like McClintock. They have already lost.

5. Defeating the recall is a big win for workers rights.
And gay rights, and environmental protections. You can't say Arnie is pro-choice, he opposes choice for young women by supporting "parental consent" laws.

7. Arnold has stated he supports environmental regulations
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 03:39 PM by Classical_Liberal
Davis has cerainly not been a friend to old growth forests, to the poor or to workers.

http://www.alternet.org/story.html?StoryID=16751

On the campaign trail, Davis promised he would ensure that "all old growth forests are spared the lumberjack's axe." But shortly after being elected, Davis held a fundraiser at the second largest timber company in the country, Sierra Pacific Industries. There he raised more than $100,000. He then promptly appointed two corporate timber reps to the Board of Forestry. Since then, the state has rubber-stamped practically every timber plan put before it including plans vigorously opposed by the state Water Quality Board, National Marine Fishery Service and the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Today, clear-cut logging is rampant in the precious Sierra Nevada. Imperiled watersheds are being destroyed. Democrat Davis let the fox pay him for the right to guard the henhouse. And now California's wealthy "timber foxes" are getting fatter by the day.

And that's not the end of Democrat Davis' environmental sins. He vetoed two important bills designed to mitigate toxic hazards that especially hurt people of color. One bill would have kept radioactive waste out of dumps near low-income communities. Another would have added a $10 surcharge on each computer sold, to help safely recycle them. But Davis sided with big business against the needs of the most vulnerable. The list goes on and on. s Davis hasn't been a friend to workers at all. He has only signed some proworker bills since he was threatened with recall.


When Arnold says he believe marriage is between a man an women, it doesn't harm gays in any specific way. They can't marry now, and Davis never proposed that they could before recall.
