Skip to comments.Sean Hannity Raising Money For Schwarzenegger (October 26th fundraiser in Sacramento)
Posted on 10/16/2006 8:14:36 PM PDT by ajolympian2004
Conservative Fox News commentator Sean Hannity will be the "special guest" Oct. 26 at a fund-raiser for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Don't tell Democrats who have embraced Schwarzenegger this year after he raised the minimum wage, signed legislation curbing global warming, and actively courted the Democratic Legislature.
The event at the Sheraton Grand in Sacramento costs $1,000 per person, but "platinum" sponsors can pay $100,000. Platinum sponsors listed on the invitation (at left and below) are Chevron executive Jack Coffey; developer Gerry Kamilos and his wife, Karen; and McDonald's franchise owner C.C. Yin and his wife, Regina.
Hannity has been a frequent cheerleader for the Republican governor and a constant thorn to some liberals who see him and this is not too over-the-top as the devil. During last year's special election, Hannity sat down with Schwarzenegger for an interview that included such questions as, "Is it still the greatest job you've ever had?"
Perhaps Hannity and Schwarzenegger can talk about global warming at the fund-raiser.
In a Fox News segment on Al Gore's documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth" which by the way, Schwarzenegger loved so much he sought out Gore's autograph Hannity asked his viewers: "Does global warming exist or is this just a liberal scare tactic? ... It's so overtly political, it's so overtly full of scare tactics. It's Al Gore screaming...at the top of his lungs that George Bush has betrayed his country. I just think the man has gone over the edge."

Steak will be served.
Wonder by who??? ;) :)
You're A Great American.
By the way, Sean Hannity is making an appearance with Bill Cunningham in the Cincinnati metro suburb of Blue Ash this Thursday to raise some money for Republican Ohio Governor candidate Ken Blackwell.

Thanks for the ping!
Thanks for posting.
I don't think Arnold has been Hannitized but that Sean has been Hollywoodized. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sean holding a fund raiser for a Dem next. He certainly loves to hob knob with the Left.
Arnoiled doesn't need Sean to do this!!!
You are a excellent judge of character!!!
More evidence, that REAL conservatives actively support Arnold.
Go Arnold and all Republicans!
VOTE VOTE VOTE
Tell me something... Does this put the scent of conservatism on Arnold, or the stench of liberalism on Hannity???
What do you think of Tom McClintock?
Tom McClintock: "Like many of us, I too have disagreements with some of the Governor's proposals. These differences, however, do not justify the abandonment of our party's responsibility to work tirelessly to reelect this Republican governor and to elect our GOP candidates to statewide and legislative offices.
For this reason, I view any effort to attack Governor Schwarzenegger as an attack on my own candidacy and those of every Republican seeking partisan office in 2006."
Sean needs to get his head examined, Arnold is about the last Republican RINO in need of funds, he is a multi millionaire that is getting lots of Hollyweird money. There are so many other candidates that could use Sean's help. Like Joe Negron in Florida or Mike Bouchard in Michigan, etc.
When I vote the social issues of our time are not even in the equation. For me it's lower taxes, strong support of our military and their mission, school choice, original intent judges, pro second amendment, etc.
I consider the social issues advocacy ones, not items to be legislated on. I have personal beliefs on social issues that are in line with those of social conservatives, but they remain that, personal beliefs.
Sean, as a conservative, understands how important it is to elect Republicans and keep Dems from power as much as possible.
A Dem loss, especially with Arnold's coattails, in a blue-blue state like CA, will be a real slap in the face to the Dems.
It may even reenergize Republicans in other state to get out and vote, and it may help keep the Congress in Republican hands.
It could be a snowball effect.
Arnold needs to win decisively, demolish Angelides, to have a mandate to fight the leftist Dems in the Legislature his next term.
See my post 16.
Tom certainly has political reasons to say this. Look, I understand voting for a RINO senator or congressman or legislator when it means keeping a viable majority to further a conservative cause. It's not ideal but sometimes necessary. I just don't see that in play here. I don't see Arnold being a check on a Democratic legislature. I think he's as bad if not worse than the Dem. I guess you guys are stuck between a rock and hard place in CA.
Strong conservatives like Tom McClintock, Ben Stein, and now Sean Hannity, to name a few.
As Jim Robinson says, "The alternative is *unthinkable*"
People who keep bashing Arnold are either clueless of what life would be like in CA with far-leftist socialist Angelides at the helm, with the similarly far-leftist socialist Legislature, or they do want the Dems to win.
