You know what? It IS a new Republican party.

It is a Republican party that WINS ELECTIONS.

You folks outside California need to sit back and wait to see what happens out here. Going nuts over every appointment is just stupid. You act as though Arnold is going to ignore all of the Republican appointees and be led by the nose by the Democrats. Has is occurred to any of you that Arnold is making DEALS to get things done? Dont be so silly as to think that all the capability and brain power rests on our side only.

Willie Brown knows where all the bodies are buried, and will be very helpful to Arnold in dealing with Democrats. You cannot just come into office and steamroller everyone else. You have to make deals, and that is what leaders do.

Oh no, here we go again. So what is it Saundra, do you respect Schwarzenegger, as you have previously posted, or because he appointed a faithful friend to his cabinet do you hate him again?

I am THRILLED that Schwarzenegger is reaching out to McClintock. Why not make the best of it and get on with rebuilding California?

I see no point in holding on to the past. McClintock lost and Arnold won. End of story. I hope Schwarzenegger does a great job for California!!

So true. This is exactly why Arnold was the only choice. If he succeeds we can point to him as an example of how Rebublicans solve problems. If he fails we can point to appointments such as this to prove he wasn't really one of us.

6 months ago, my hispanic housekeeper was a liberal Democrat. After spending 6 months listening to Rush on my radios, and Fox News on the Television, she is now a moderate Republican. She just watched Bush's speech with me. Liberals are not scum, sometimes they are not informed, having never heard the other side.

Long time pal of Teddy Kennedy. That's all you need to know.

And you support Steve Samuelian, a man who has admitted to loitering in areas of prostitution and lies to the police. That's all we need to know.

Samuelian tactics irritate his supporters State Assembly member's hardball political style cited along with his indiscretions.

>> Women, Actors and Democrats voting for Arnold, that should tell us something...[/sarcasm} <<

It should, but it won't. All the hard-core feminazi's, gun-grabbers, and envirowacko Greens in Chicago "crossing over" for "Republican" George Ryan should have been a warning to the ILGOP in 1998, but they didn't listen either. They even viewed Je$$e Jack$on's appointment to helm the state's Kidcare program and subsequent turn to hold a dinner honoring "Republican" George Ryan at Rainbow/PUSH as proof that ol' George made the party more "inclusive"

Of course we learned from that mistake and you didn't listen. One day, you'll learn, too.

Make that SENIOR advisor. That means she'll have more than his ear.

And vice versa...what a perfect appointment to keep him apprised of the other side. This just further proves Arnold's brilliance.

We had a once in a lifetime chance of changing the direction of this State, and the people delivered as best they could. Can't you at least wait and see before raining on the parade?

Another ‘red flag’ for GOP voters?: Hollywood ‘green’ activist is top Schwarzenegger aide
California Political Review ^ | September 10, 2003 | Frank Duclos

Campaign advisor Bonnie Reiss has long promoted liberal environmentalism through the entertainment industry.

Another key Arnold Schwarzenegger gubernatorial campaign aide has emerged as a possible embarrassment to the actor as he tries to solidify support within the GOP base.

Long-time Schwarzenegger friend and political co-worker Democrat Bonnie Reiss, who joined his campaign last month, has long been an influential, highly effective leader of Hollywood’s left-wing environmentalists, working with Norman Lear before forming her own organization promoting a broadly anti-market, anti-private property political agenda.

Reiss’s activism may embarrass Schwarzenegger, already at odds with many Republicans over his support of abortion and gun control, just as political insiders are digesting a recent private survey showing Republican state Sen. Tom McClintock within what is described as “striking distance” of Schwarzenegger and Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamanate.

Reiss could add to Schwarzenegger’s difficulties if she is seen as another in a string of insiders giving his campaign a liberal pro-tax, anti-market flavor. Earlier, Schwarzenegger advisor Warren Buffett’s criticism of Prop. 13 and the addition to the campaign of Hollywood liberal Rob Lowe caused an uproar among GOP base voters.

Republican state legislative staffer Tom Hudson said he was concerned to hear of Reiss’s background and role in the Schwarzenegger campaign “at a time when businesses are being smothered by excessive environmental regulations, and developers, farmers, and researchers are being attacked outright by fringe animal rights activists.”

Hudson, legislative director for California Senate Natural Resources Committee Vice Chairman Rico Oller, said he is “more than a little concerned over someone with her background being so close to a potential Republican governor, indeed any governor.”

As a long-time player within the Hollywood establishment elite, Reiss could further complicate Schwarzenegger’s efforts to cultivate a “populist” image in sync with the recall’s Prop. 13-style, grass-roots conservative origins.

“This is populism?” asked American Spectator columnist George Neumayr after seeing an August Los Angeles Times headline that read: “Mobilizing the Machine: Schwarzenegger is Harnessing His Talent Agents and Hollywood Contacts to Raise Funds and Rally the Electorate.”

“Normally the scourge of the Republican Party,” Neumayr wrote on an American Spectator website, “the Hollywood elite is warming to the idea of a Schwarzenegger governorship.ÊThey recognize him as a fellow liberal and regard the ‘R’ after his name as a convenient charade. Peter Bart of Daily Variety chuckled to CNN that he is a ‘Schwarzenegger Republican.’ The Times reports that ‘director/producer Bud Yorkin, a liberal Democrat, said he wouldn’t hesitate to vote for Schwarzenegger,’ and Canadian movie director Ivan Reitman is planning to co-host a fundraiser for him next month.”

An accomplished lawyer, accountant, producer, and writer, Ms. Reiss worked for U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy’s 1980 presidential campaign before moving to Southern California to specialize in entertainment law.

She is a former member of the Environmental Media Association founded by Norman Lear, a group that worked to insert pro-“Green” messages into mainstream television programs and movies.

In 1989, she founded her own organization, the Earth Communications Office (ECO). Associated Press reported in 1991 that “because of ECO, ‘Designing Women’ created an episode about using cloth diapers, Michael Douglas is producing a movie about toxic waste, ‘L.A. Law’ addressed animal rights, ‘Murphy Brown’ took on recycling, and Barbra Streisand included an environmental message in her latest album.”

“We have only ten years left to do something,” warned Reiss at ECO’s founding, according to AP.

The July 1, 2003, issue of Sierra, in a supportive article titled “Green Glitterati: celebrities give props to the environment,” described ECO as “ ... another Hollywood green group ... founded in 1989 by entertainment attorney Bonnie Reiss, who discovered that many of the biggest stars were willing to bring some high gloss to the realm of the tree- hugger.”

According to Sierra, ECO’s member roster includes “[James] Cromwell, Pierce Brosnan, and Kevin Bacon.” The group “made its mark with emotional public-service announcements shown before the main features in movie theaters all over the globe. Footage of pristine waters, roiling clouds, leaping dolphins, and time-lapsed sunsets with Willie Nelson singing ‘What a Wonderful World’ as soundtrack encouraged viewers to ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle.’”

Environmentalist critic Ron Arnold described Reiss in his book Trashing the Economy: How Runaway Environmentalism is Wrecking America as “the Aimee Semple McPherson eco-evangelist to the stars.”

Employing a soft-sell approach, ECO promotes “questioning” of American “consumption patterns,” “consumer habits,” and “social values.” A Curriculum and Resource Guide accompanying an ECO-recommended book for young readers (called Stuff) suggests as a classroom activity that “students form a commission on reducing our environmental impact by changing our consumption patterns. Have the class brainstorm different ways that change can be promoted (e.g. education, economics, lifestyle, laws, technology, infrastructure, etc.) ....”

Ms. Reiss’s Schwarzenegger connection runs deep. Reuters quoted her saying she has been a Schwarzenegger family friend for 24 years and has worked with Mr. Schwarzennegger for 10 years. Ms. Reiss worked with Mr. Schwarzenegger’s wife Maria Shriver producing a 1994 Shriver-moderated event billed as the “First Annual Los Angeles Briefing on Major Women’s Health Issues.”

More recently, Ms. Reiss served as CEO of Mr. Schwarzenegger’s Inner-City Games Foundation, making her his original public policy advisor, predating the arrival of the actor’s present campaign team of political and policy consultants.

Ms. Reiss was also founding director of Mr. Schwarzenegger’s After School All Stars, an organization providing after school programs to middle schools.

Ms. Reiss seems poised to play an influential role in policy formulation for Mr. Schwarzenegger who has rebuffed questions about his specific proposals for California by promising to surround himself with capable advisors. Asked specifically about environmental issues, Mr. Schwarzenegger has said, “I have always been environmentally friendly ... Nothing to worry about.”

But his Party’s conservative base seems already worried.

The more I learn about Arnold’s history supporting groups like ECO,” legislative staffer Tom Hudson said, “and his willingness to host awards ceremonies for Norman Lear’s Environmental Media Association, the more concerned I become .... Bonnie Reiss makes it that much worse.

“I have to fight against wacko environmental ideas on an almost daily basis. The last thing we need is that kind of stuff coming from a Republican governor’s office.”

Aww, heck. Let's kill Arnie before he gets sworn in. Thats sure to get results.

These same people are the single issue voters. The type to up and leave a church because of one issue they don't agree with, then ones who run from place to place looking for their perfect lot in life, molded around their idea(l). They think they are starting the "true conservative party", when in fact they are dividing themselves up into thousnads of minute fractions, with the strength of the sum equal to an individual part.

Good luck to them, and good riddance.

But, I thought all that mattered was the Fiscal Crisis in California - wasn't that the reason for the Recall Davis campaign? I don't think anyone here had an illusions about ARnold when it came to social issues. Most knew he was a moderate-to-liberal in those areas.

Make up your minds already. Californians voted in a Fiscal COnservative/Social Liberal, and now ya all are whining because you got exactly what you voted for. Go figure.

Having capable people on staff, does NOT mean that they are part of one's agenda. If your agenda is to get gas for your car, does it hurt if your gas attendant is a Liberal? Is your gas going to be weaker?

I know. It's so horrible that a governor would choose a senior advisor whom he has known for a long time and apparently trusts, when he could have picked someone whom he knows little about. That would have been better for California, no doubt about that.

You mean she hasn't convinced you she told you so and Gray Davis should just stay in office ?

Yeah. And he does have experience, so a transition team is a good place for him, AND for California. He helps get the adminsitration in place smoothly, and then he's done. While I don't like Willie, I can see how he'd be useful in that regard.

If he gets appointed to a permanent position when the transition is over, then I'd be more concerned.
