Sean Hannity Raising Money For Schwarzenegger (October 26th fundraiser in Sacramento)
"Political Muscle" LA Times blog ^ | October 15th, 2006 | Robert Salladay

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."

That'll cost you a minumum of $100 for use of that phrase, actually coined originally by Bill Cunningham of the BIG ONE, WLW 700am in Cincinnati, Ohio.

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.

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.

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.

I think Sean realizes that Arnold is a better choice than the democrat alternative, plus a great turnout will assist (R) Lt. Governor candidate Tom McClintock, a true Reagan conservative.

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.

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.

BUMP!

Precisely!

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.

Which ones? Abortion? Gay Marriage? Euthanasia? Human Cloning? Those are social public policy issues. There is no way you cannot take a public stance on any of them except to support or oppose them. To say you don't care tells me that you have already made that choice.

How will Arnold claim such a mandate when it will be truthfully argued by the Dems and the media that Arnold campaigned and governed successfully by backing off and accommodating the Dems?

You must not have been following CA politics.

Arnold has done a lot of conservative things, nobody could have done more, under the circumstances, having to deal with the far leftist Legislature AND voters who don't bother to come out and vote for his conservative reform propositions, that took on the unions, wanted to put limits on spending and wanted to take redistricting away from politicians. Not to mention that Arnold refused to raise taxes, despite Dem pressure, he pushed through a business friendly workers comp bill, he vetoed drivers licenses for illegals, vetoed homosexual marriage, vetoed universal goverment run healthcare.

Angelides would have made the opposite choices.

Conservatives shouls get down on their knees and thank God that we have Arnold as governor and not Bustamante and need to make sure we don't get Angelides.

Arnold also has coat tails, the downticket races are competitive, because of him, potentially helping Republicans get elected.

Please tell us, which of the above listed issues do you consider the Dems, especially Dems in CA to have a position that is closer to a conservative position, than Republicans?

Not to mention, that Arnold vetoed homosexual marriage, while Angelides said he will sign it.

Are you trying to tell us, that conservatives, even conservatives with impeccable conservative credentials, like Tom McC and Hannity are either sellouts or not real conservatives, BUT "conservatives" who want to see Arnold defeated, and thereby a Marxist, leftist, socialist Angelides elected are "real conservatives".

You must have a funny definition of conservatives.

I think it's time for a repost of bd476's excellent analogy, for those who keep railing against Arnold, when we are faced with using it all, if Angelides would get elected:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1715938/posts?page=34#34


Recently a man went to his ophthalmologist for an eye checkup.

After thoroughly examining the man's eyes, the ophthalmologist said, "Well, I have some bad news and some good news for you. The bad news is that you have glaucoma in both eyes."

The man said: "That's terrible news, Doctor! Glaucoma means I'm going blind! Please, give me the good news!"

The ophthalmologist responded: "The good news is that you have the type of glaucoma which can be treated with the use of prescription eye drops used daily. You will be able to save your vision if you follow my directions and use the eye drops every day."

The man responded: "That's not good news, Doctor, that's bad news! Prescription medications cost too much. I don't like taking medications!"

The man continued: "Daily eye drops would be an inconvenience. Those eye drops will probably sting. There might be other side effects. If using eye drops is the only way to save my vision, then I prefer to go blind. Who needs to see anyway?!"

There is none so blind as they that won’t see.

I'm personally opposed to all the things you have listed. None of them impact my vote for any particular candidate though. For me it comes down to economics (free markets), pro second amendment and support of our military, among a few others. All social issues for me are down in the noise level when it comes for whom I will cast a vote.

State ballot issues are a different story. Here in Colorado we have two state initiatives that will allow civil unions for men who have sex with other men and ban marriage for men who have sex with other men. I'll vote against the civil unions and for the amendment to decree that a officially recognized marriage is between a man and a woman. My vote has nothing to do with religious beliefs either. Men having sex with other men is sick and disgusting so I'll vote against that behaviour in this election and any initiatives that come before the electorate here in the future.

Back to Arnold, if he were to somehow have the opportunity to run for President of this country I'd support him if he were to make it out of the GOP primary process. A candidate like Mitt Romney or George Allen would be my first choice, but I personally like 'The Terminator' and think he'd make for a great President of this country.

In California, the issues are mostly fiscal of late. And our very own party (R) and/or governor (R) have been applauding record spending and record borrowing, record increases in education funding, funding more social programs, increased regulation to fight global warming, taxpayer subsidies to envirowackos, multimillion acre land grabs, etc. Please don't try to paint those California conservatives who are not all that pleased with the current situation as some sort of right-wing social activists.

"I could just understand being apathetic as regards the Governor's race."

Same thing. You don't live in CA, so you aren't fully aware of how things are. But Angelides is actually counting on conservatives to stay home, it's part of this win strategy, which the Dems stated and I have multiple quotes from articles that actually says so.

If Republicans turn out, the Dems will NOT win. There is nothing to get them enthusiastic to get out and vote, and that helps our chances, if we DO get out and vote straight Republican ticket.

LOL, this is exactly what I've done every election since I first voted in 1980. It makes the time that it takes to complete a ballot go much quicker when all you have to do is search for the candidates with an (R) next to their name.

I see you are ignoring again, that Arnold did put the reform propositions, including Prop. 76 the "live within our means" proposition on the ballot, which would have helped to restrain the Dem Legislature's unstoppable spending. But conservatives stayed home, other claiming to be conservatives, such as yourself actually voted WITH THE DEMS TO DEFEAT it.

I agree --- perhaps ajolympian2004 doesn't realize that some who keep trying to defeat Arnold aren't misguided conservatives, but DICCs (Democrats In Conservative Clothing) or "pretend conservatives" who are trying to depress conservative turnout.

They are described here:

"But the pretend-conservative act is being carried onto a whole new playing field, one that has become wildly influential over the past few years and one that does not stand to be instantly recognized as a fake. That playing field is the blogosphere, which is then used in conjunction with massive e-mailings to “spread the word” (as one e-mailer insisted I do to my readers/e-mail list) to other conservatives.

The concept is the same: the blog or e-mail claims, first, that the said writer has been a conservative for years and that they have “had it with Republicans.” They then point to an issue that conservatives would likely be upset about such as excessive spending, immigration, or the expansion of government. Their supposed rage over the issue has convinced them to either not show up to vote in 2006, or, in order to really show Republicans, vote for the Democrat instead. "

DISCLAMER: DICC is used as a general term, it is absolutely NOT directed towards any particular person, therefore it's NOT meant as a personal insult to anyone. If someone chooses to conclude that it's directed towards them, it THEIR choice and perhaps they feel that the shoe fits. DICC is not any different than when people use the word RINO, it's just a neater acronym. "Democrat in Conservative Clothing" refers to people described as above, who pretend to be conservatives, while, when examining their actions, those are NOT consistent with the actions of REAL conservatives with impeccable conservative credentials, such as Tom McClintock and how Hannity -- who realize that we must keep Angelides and Dems everywhere out of power, and the way to do it, is to support and vote for Republican candidates, instead of bash them, thereby helping the Dems.

I am working hard for worker turnout, as are all conservatives in California I know that are NOT happy with where we are today.

We will be voting AGAINST more borrowing, AGAINST more taxes and FOR Conservative candidates.
EVERYONE needs to vote!
