Arnold has a lot of weaknesses, but one thing he is not is stupid. He knows this is THE issue to American citizens.

If Cedillo amends it next time to include only gay illegal aliens Arnold will likely sign it.

Arnold does the right thing about really major important things and has to give in to the CA Legislature on smaller things in return.

Angelides would rubber stamp all the leftist Dem bills the CA Legislature churns out.

Good for Arnold.

The folks who support giving licenses to illegals argue that they need transport to travel to work

LOL!!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't California liscenses be invalid for things like Airplane travel if this law got signed? It seems to run afoul of the Real ID act!

Another bill heading to Arnold, which I certainly expect him to veto:

"In other legislative action, the Assembly voted 44-30 to approve a bill that would allow illegal immigrant students who attend California public colleges and universities to receive financial aid.

SB160 by Sen. Gilbert Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, requires the University of California, the California State University and the state community college system to allow illegal immigrant students to be eligible to apply for all of their student aid programs. "

How many times is the CA legislature going to try to ram this thing through? A governor was already recalled because he signed a previous version of this insane legislation.

Another BIG LIE.

Arnold vetoed the homsexual marriage bill and said he will veto the bill to promote homosexual accmplishments in schools.

Why don't you get your facts straight for once?

Illegals not only can register, but vote in CA.

Loretta Sanchez defeated Bob Dornan by the votes of the illegals, it was proven, and she was still seated in the US Congress.

Arnold does the right thing about really major important things...

Yeah... that Global warming thingie isn't important at all.
Prescription drug program? Just tidbits for the poor.
Minimum Wage Hikes? No big deal.
Religious freedom from the homosexual agenda? Not important.

It’s amazing. Every single time I say, “I’ve had enough, I’m not voting for that RINO,” the DemonRats come along and convince me to vote Republican.

This measure was tailored to conform to the Real ID Act (provisions for special markings for licenses for illegals).

"Arnold is a big suppporter of the GLBT agenda."

Another BIG LIE.

I agree with GSP

"No Republican governor in California history has promoted transsexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality like Arnold Schwarzenegger has. In the last three years, Schwarzenegger has delighted homosexual activists by signing most of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) bills that the Democrat-controlled Legislature has placed on his desk. "
--Randy Thomasson, President, Campaign for Children and Families [Source]

"Since taking office in 2003, has signed two dozen bills in support of rights for the gay and lesbian communities." [Source]

"The attempt to pass gay marriage was a cynical attempt to embarrass a governor who, up until that point, had been recognized by Equality California and the Human Rights Campaign as the most gay-friendly governor in history."
--Ralph Denney, Log Cabin Candidate for California Assembly (San Diego-AD 76), [Source]

Sure! What's to stop them? Nobody will stop them at the polling place. Put in some time as a poll monitor and you'll be told that you may not question anybody's residency or citizenship status.

If he understands the groundswell concerning illegal immigration, then why hasn't he gotten off the pot and done something about it?

Those illegals are still here. They are still driving. They are still involved in countless hit and run accidents. They are still mostly uninsured.

Yeah, thanks Governor.

Don't Worry Conservatives! You have a choice!

Instead of voting to keep a pro-abortion, pro-gay rights, anti-second ammendment, pro-big government, pro-taxation "Republican" in office, do this instead:

1. Vote for all the down-the-ballot Republicans. They are good conservative candidates. Men like Tom McClintock definately deserve our support.

2. Vote for the conservative running for Governor. Ed Noonan is the American Independent Party Candidate for Governor. Learn more at his website at www.ednoonan4gov.org

Not really, The Terminator has been working behind the scenes all along to get drivers license's for illegals, I will bet my hat that he will sign some for of a license bill after he is re-elected.

What is to stop them? You can't ask if they are a citizen. Besides motor Voter requires the issuing agency to register any one receiving welfare, or any other kind of assistance.

Explain how one Republican (Stevens) Can hold up a bill, and some how, not one republican could hold up Motor Voter. Sighhhhhh

It's all enough to gag a maggot! (and those preverts whose title rhymes with maggot!)

I simply CANNOT BELIEVE that Republicans have appeased this big spending, big borrowing, gay-loving, GANG-GREEN Governor so easily, let alone people on a conservative site pretending to be any kind of "conservatives!"

It just boggles the clear thinking considerate, mature conservative mind!!!

Angelides said he would sign it.

To be repealed by referendum, followed by another recall.

Besides, it's illegal under the Federal Real ID law.

ANOTHER MAJOR difference between Arnold and Angelides.

As to whether this is ANOTHER MAJOR difference, there you go again. You were told what Arnold said and offered a source HERE.

I'll repeat it for you, again.

Schwarzenegger on Driver Licenses for illegal aliens during a January Interview with Univision:

We are right now in the middle of working very hard with Senator Cedillo. My staff and his staff. Everyone is working together. And we are absolutely positive that we will come up with a great bill. With his help and with my team's help, I think we will work it out. So there's, uh, really a good move forward.

Interviewer: How would you deal with more conservative members of the legislature...?

Schwarzenegger: Again, it's one of those things where we all have to get together and see that this is a good idea and this is the way to move forward. So, I am talking to my Republican friends all the time about it, and also to my Democratic friends. We will do it.

Washington Times, 3/02/04

"Our staffs have met, and they're working on this together," said Vincent Salido, spokesman for the Republican governor

Schwarzenegger on Driver Licenses for illegal aliens during a December 2003 Interview with Dan Weintraub:

Reporter: "You did say that to me when we talked one on one (Sept. 6, 2003) that you would consider a package deal that would have included a requirement of insurance for those people that are going to get the drivers license. That I know is something that you believe in. Do you also believe that all undocumented immigrants will be able to get a drivers license if they present insurance, if they have a background check, fingerprints?

Governor: "Absolutely...yes. This is what we are going to work on. This is what we are going to talk about, but right now the most important thing is to get this passed (the repeal of SB 60) so we can move to other issues. I think Senator Cedillo was extremely gracious and helpful with this whole thing. He is a great leader, he understood what would be the best thing for California; rather than just doing an immediate fix, but to make everybody happy. It doesn't make sense if the majority of Californians run around and hate the idea of undocumented immigrants having drivers licenses because there is no background check, because it doesn't solve the problem with insurance. Let's do it the right way, let's make every Californian happy and let's make the undocumented immigrants happy."

You can try to spin it, but the bottom line is that Arnold vetoed it before and will veto it again, while Angelides would sign it.

MAJOR difference between the two.

First of all you are quoting OPINIONS from some anti-Arnold article, second of all, Arnold has signed some inconsequential bills, but he vetoed important ones, such as the homosexual marriage act.

"Let's do it the right way, let's make every Californian happy and let's make the undocumented immigrants happy."

I once thought, giving him the benefit of the doubt, that he was intensely niaeve about having things both ways at once like a lot of Liberals, however... He's got this and his idea that you can over-regulate environmental matters to the extreme and still not suffocate economic progress, all wrong!

I sure wish he knew and understood your concepts and precepts!!! Maybe then I wouldn't oppose him so severely...

Well what was that other queer ciriculicum bill he just signed that we were all talking about on here yesterday. That was something that goldstategop was probably referring to and yet you scream "LIAR" at him and dismiss his quite legitimate point of view! What the heck is the matter with you? Are you all right? REALLY! I mean it!!!

A bill is coming up to grant in-state college tuition to illegal aliens, no doubt Gil Cedillo's brainchild. If Arnold is listening to California citizens, he will also veto that.

Illegals get enough freebies as it is, granting them more will invite the next 10 million to come here. They will eventually break this state's financial back.
