Arnold Schwarzenegger indicates he would accept position in Obama administration

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the outgoing Republican Governor of California, has indicated he would accept a position as an "energy tsar" in President Barack Obama's Democratic administration.

Mr Schwarzenegger suggested he would like to go to Washington and influence national policy on clean energy use, and promote environmentalism.

The former Hollywood action star has until now refused to disclose what he plans to do after he leaves office next month.

Giving his first indication of what direction he wants to pursue however, Mr Schwarzenegger said he was a "very big believer in environmental issues" and wanted to build, at the national level, on legislation he enacted in California to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Mr Schwarzenegger suggested he was an ideal person to appeal to the American public at large on environmental issues because of his "celebrity power, knowledge and experience."

He added that energy consumers were more likely to listen to him about the need for reform because he would not be seen as a radical, adding: "People are very receptive when I talk about these things because I'm a Hummer driver not a tree-hugger."

He did such a wonderful job turning California into a basket case that he'd be a perfect fit for the Obama regime. Look a what a wonderful job Napolitano is doing after she trashed Arizona's budget and economy.

The man is an ignorant buffoon and he knows LESS about the subject of energy than the average guy on the street. He has no background in science or technology and listening to him speak about energy issues is worst than going through root canal. The guy is a clown and needs to go back to the clown town he came from- Hollywood.

Ahhnold,maybe you could team up with Jesse Ventura instead. There must be some conspiracies out there that need to be terminated. We do not want or need “czars” here. Not now, not ever. Those 0bummer appointed are as illegal as he is.

What a surprise. The Austrian who spoke at the Republican National Convention of his distaste for socialism... is a SOCIALIST!

Actually, it's not surprising that this Nazi would favor the Anschluss.

He did such a masterful job on California I can just imagine him in WDC.

Any suggestions as to which job in the Administration he should be appointed??

Did anyone actually talk about offering him one, or is he just trolling for a job?

So, Ahnold, you're saying that people are more likely to listen to a hypocrite?

When forensic scientists went to exhume the body of Beethoven they were surprised to open the tomb and find Beethoven sitting at a piano with a pencil and a pile of sheet music, erasing all the notes.

Then they realized he was just decomposing.

Sorry Schwartz...you’ve been near a Kennedy, even worse, a Kennedy Bimbo.

You’re now even more stupid than before, you’ve probably got an alcohol problem, and your morals are now in question.

Go away.

Far away.

Perhaps Austria.

Well if he wants that Gig he may have to first release algores second chondra (or whatever he calls ejaculation these days) first.

It's a high paying gig and all it takes is a Movie or two and the perks are Nobel Awards and big bucks ... I'm actually surprised there isn't more competition.

They don’t make them much dumber than this former steroid using muscleman. He has f’ed up this state so bad during his time in office. We were better off with the corrupt Gray Davis as our governor. At least we would not have expected anything good out of him.

Honestly, I don’t know if I can think of any other politician that has disappointed more than Arnold. Crist, maybe?

Granted he was a blank slate when he came out, but said some kinda ballsy things at the time. And then folded like a cheap card table.

Yes, I think Arnold would fit right in with the Won’s cabinet.

Arnold has the “disease”, that love of political office that seems to infect the most minor office holder and can be fatal in higher office.

Having held office he will forever wear the title “Governor” no matter his record.
