Gov. Schwarzenegger Calls For Exit From Iraq On 'Tonight'

Gov. Schwarzenegger Calls For Exit From Iraq On 'Tonight'

POSTED: 8:41 am PDT October 12, 2006
UPDATED: 9:09 am PDT October 12, 2006

LOS ANGELES -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger traded quips with Jay Leno one moment and criticized U.S. foreign policy the next during an appearance on the "Tonight Show" that had the governor's opponents crying foul because his rival in next month's election wasn't included.

When asked by Leno about television campaign ads attempting to link Schwarzenegger to President Bush, the star of the "Terminator" films mocked the notion.

"To link me to George Bush is like linking me to an Oscar," said the governor, who has never won -- nor even been nominated for -- acting's most prestigious award.

On a more serious subject, the Republican governor said a "lot of mistakes" were made during the war in Iraq, but ducked a question from Leno about whether Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld should be fired.

"Without any doubt, we have to find an exit strategy as quickly as possible," he said.

Schwarzenegger has previously said he supports the war, but that the nation should find a "sensible" way to get out.

4. He's pretty skilled at playin the game.
I always thought Arnold would be an intelligent politician. But for campaigning for Bush in 2004 I wish someone would kick his damn ass.

6. He shouldn't have used "Oscar" in his
example of comparing himself to Bush. "Razzie" would have been more fitting.

7. Arnold is a good Democrat!
Much like Bush, until after the election...Same with Musclehead, ran as a Dem three years ago and then became himself after the election...a fascist monster...and he'll do the same after this election and as I've been saying for month's and month's, is a shoe-in to win.
