Skip to comments.Arnold Schwarzenegger, Girly Man

The man who says he left Austria because he couldnt stand socialism has no problem with it here. The man who preached self-reliance doesnt worry about responsible homeowners being forced to bail out others. The man who rode to the California governors mansion by bashing Gray Davis over the car tax and promising to repeal it . . . just pushed through a budget nearly doubling the tax.
Schwarzeneggers weakness and hypocrisy was evident today on This Week. George Stephanopoulos opened the interview by playing a clip of a photo-op Schwarzenegger staged when first running for governor, having a huge weight dropped on a car to symbolize the way that when I get to Sacramento, I will immediately destroy the car tax! Stephanopoulos asked Schwarzenegger whether he owed Davis an apology. Absolutely not, was the predictable reply.
That was just the first of a number of weak dodges by the former Mr. Olympia . . .

Girl man ping to Today show list.
I demand that he renounce his Republican party affiliation immediately. He is no Republican. Never was.
He’s useless now.His Kennedy wife has converted him ito a proper metrosexual.
I didn’t include it in the article, but he also did a tap dance about how it doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican, blah blah blah.
I have never seen a more weasely performance. His theory of governance, boiled down to its essence, is “Whatever a group of people yell loud enough for, you give it to them.”
He is a complete waste of space and air.
He’s addicted to power. Get out of his way, or else.
"Yes, yes. It's true. Vee ahr all socialists now."
Having come across this on the “Road to Serfdom” thread and watched his video introduction in 1980, his hypocrisy seems absolutely incredible......
In honor of Milton Friedman, we are streaming the ground-breaking Free to Choose series as it originally aired in 1980 as well as an updated 1990 version. Introduced by Arnold Schwarzenegger

I have been waiting for someone to say Girlie Man. He certainly has turned into a piece of pastery.
All the public service unions demonized him and his common sense ideas a couple years ago when all the initiatives he wanted to implement went down to defeat. They - the Teachers Union especially - have so much dough, they can drown any opposition to their policies.
He could have stuck to his guns, but it would have been a fools errand - Arnold Quixote. At least his self respect and respect of conservatives would be intact.
He has now chosen a different path to the detriment of the average Californian.
Thanks for watching/reporting/commentary, Mark. Great thread. Thanks to all posters.
Was Schwarzenegger always a Narcissistic Steroidal Stealth Socialist, or is the staunch conservative just getting old and mentally flabby? /sarcasm
Yoo are going to pay for dat!!

Just politics as usual, nothing out of the ordinary. Ahrnold is a girly RINO.
Another one bites the dust.
