Skip to comments.Trending: Schwarzenegger asks, 'What would Ronald Reagan have done?'
Posted on 05/06/2012 9:19:26 AM PDT by Innovative
Were Ronald Reagan in office today, some Republicans would "start looking for a 'real' conservative to challenge him in a primary," Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote in an op-ed published Saturday evening.
"What's important is our shared belief in the broad Republican principles of free enterprise and small government," he said in the op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times. "If we continue to fight one another without being willing to compromise, we will keep losing to big-government advocates."

“I have several times posted here that my view is that George W. Bush has been the best and most conservative president in my lifetime..... If you want to reverse any of this, you have to get Obama out of there and elect a strong GOP majority in Congress. “
Yours is an intelligent, sensible post. I hope people will read it and ponder it.
You were posting that to an elected official? Next time, try understanding that a lot of FReepers are serious people, and not a herd of stupid sheep.
As to what she was telling you, NO, all of that enviro-crap wasn't a matter of Democrat preferences, it was Arnold's doing with Democrat approval,. IOW, usual RINO behavior (ala Nixon).
So true. So true.
I read it and pondered it.
Except for the observation that Bush II “did NOT sign an immigration amnesty bill”—he had his pen ready and even took the time to taunt us a second time—yes, it was an intelligent, sensible post.
It was goodthinkful and you are both highly orthodox goodthinkers. I say that in the same way that an Amish man might say of another, “Ja, bruder Schmidt is very plain.”
At the same time, my computer won’t run on kerosene. So ignore the rest of us. We’re just thought criminals.
“Goodthink, a term from Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, is a Newspeak word signifying a set of thoughts and beliefs that is in accordance with those established by the Party.
In the rules of Newspeak, the noun stem (which also serves as a verb) can become the adjective goodthinkful, the adverb goodthinkwise, the past participle goodthinked, and the gerund goodthinking. Additionally, one who is “goodthinkful” is referred to as a goodthinker.
The opposite of certain aspects of goodthink is crimethink. However, according to the common rules of Newspeak words do not have opposites, and one would just add the prefix un- to the word.”
I’m thinking I might be able to cross something else off my bucket list: My own band. `tumblindice and the thought criminals.’
What do you ..... think? Give GOPAC a call, then let me know.
The spittin' image of FairOpinion has returned! Better go start another thread, "Innovative", this one has been handed back to you.
Of course, the tolerance level on FR for the damage your misbegotten ilk has perpetrated is far lower than in years past, so you may not get away with it for long. I'd get at least a six month contract in writing if I were you, because you won't last long here pitching that kind of garbage.
In your response, you didn’t ping the original poster, JLS, to whom I responded and whose post I found very intelligent and sensible.
Obviously you couldn’t refute JLS’s statements in his/her posts, so you resorted to vicious attacks.
After all the garbage you posted, you call a clerical omission pathetic? You're lucky I haven't filed abuse charges.
“Except for the observation that Bush II did NOT sign an immigration amnesty billhe had his pen ready and even took the time to taunt us a second time...”
So you prefer a president you think is with you all the time who nominates and gets confirmed Justice O’Connor to one you worry is not quite as much with you but who nominates and withdraws Hariet Miers and replaces her nomination that of with Justice Alito, when presented with conservative objections.
Bush was ready to sign an amnesty bill though one intended to give conservative illegal immigrants citizenship, but when faced with conservative opposition stepped up border enforcement.
I think I will go with results over style. Anyone can of course go the other way if they like. I am not sure it will get them the kind of results they are hoping for. At least it has not in my lifetime.
Nope, Arnold is a political GREEN through and through and AB32 was his achievement.
AB32 gives selected government agencies power to enact regulations that will effect every Californians life. Its already happening and California wont survive it.
People like Arnold ruined the Republican Party, not us conservatives.
Hes still at his GREEN, Big Government, UN agenda with his Sustainia project.
Just because you want to re-write history, that doesn’t mean the rest of us have to swallow your revisions.
Bush was pushing amnesty with everything he had. He was totally invested in it, and I don’t know what world you live in, but illegals are NOT “conservative”.
Bush also spent money like a drunken sailor.
“Bush also spent money like a drunken sailor.”
Are you trying to call President Reagan a name?
In constant dollar terms Reagan’s deficits over 8 years were 2.81 trillion while G.W. Bush’ deficits over 8 years were 2.66 trillion.
To me that is pretty similar, though since GDP and population were great in 2001-2008 compared to 1981-1988, Reagan were more per capita and more as a percentage of GDP.
Well put and irrefutably and precisely correct!!!
This thread has been infected with a couple of really pussey thinkers!!!
Time to play whack-a-mole again, I see.
It gets tiring, but RINOs do an awful lot of damage. True that the time could have been spent discussing how conservative principles solve problems, but some things are simply necessary.
No, you seem unaware that Arnold styles himself as Mr. Sustainability and Global Climate Change
