STOCKTON - A day after he ruffled Democratic lawmakers by calling them "girlie men," Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger pressed ahead Sunday with another shopping mall attack but avoided repeating the reference.
The Republican governor didn't soften his theme otherwise, nor shy away from plucking famous lines from his movies to thrill the crowd, as he urged thousands of fans jammed into a food court to unseat Democratic legislators in November if they do not agree to his version of a state spending plan, now 19 days late.
"I am going to make you officially right now the terminators," Schwarzenegger said. "If they do not pass my budget on Nov. 2, I want you to go out there and go after those Democratic legislators. They are obstructionists. ... Go out there, vote them out of office, vote them out of office and we'll put new faces in there."
Sunday marked the third straight day that Schwarzenegger traveled to legislative districts where Democrats' grasp is considered vulnerable, to build public support for his budget plans.
On Saturday, he angered Democrats by calling them "girlie men" because "they don't have the guts" to admit they are allied with "the unions, the trial lawyers" in the budget debate. The "girlie men" reference was borrowed from an old "Saturday Night Live" sketch spoofing him.

CA is never going to solve its problem unless it sends the Dems packing.
This is why i love this guy
he may be able to build party support in CA. Romney is trying something similar in Mass. He did flip one state senate seat in a special election. I just hope that he can use the same chutzpa in the general election and get a few more R seats
Yep... he might not be all that conservative but he's a loyal Republican through and through and knows who to blame. Unlike certain other RINOs who spend all their time bashing Bush.
I worry that the media will blackout his speech at the RNC. Arnold has the potential to swing many voters but I hear that they will only be covering 1 hour of the RNC per day... and they conveniently won't have "time" to cover it.
Admit it, have you seen a "mainstream" newspaper article saying that Schwarzneggar or even Guiliani is speaking at the RNC? It's always "Pataki" or "Miller". Disgusting pigs.
ya gotta luv it!
