Oh h*ll no. Go away, Arnie. No one misses you or wants you.
Doesn't the family now run a chain of hapsburger restaurants?
After Obama, we need a porn star for president. Now for something completely different.
I dunno his wife was almost as bad.
Now we have a manizer.
Remember how the “Republicans” said in 2003 that without Arnold being governor CA would be a lost cause. Well, they got him, and it is a lost cause.
We laugh, but the first person to propose an amendment to allow Arnold to run was EMK’s “friend”, Orrin G. Hatch. People in SLC truly believe in him.
Think about this:
We conservatives have been talking about states rights & the 10th amendment for over a decade.
Any Constitutional convention called puts every/any single thing on the table.
And the states vote, not the federals. Put together a good number of blue states and its over for unlimited federal dominance over the states
Of course there is a flip side... But I’m in favor of the challenge
Ok, I think we can now declare Ahnold just an Action Figure toy and with the same intelligence.
If he just switches parties, no one would even care where he was from.
But to imagine that he could persuade three-fourths of the state legislatures (38, in all) to go along with such a change, plus two-thirds of both chambers of Congress--and all in time for a 2016 presidential run, yet--is simply to suspend all disbelief...
Maybe. I do know he sells a lot of fried chicken in Thailand!
“Any amendment to the Constitution must be approved by two-thirds majority in the House and the Senate.”
Somebody needs to go back and read the Constitution.

Just ten short years ago. I remember those days well. Tom McClintock supporters were labeled “Tomikazes” and, boy, what jolly, good-natured fun it was to call them that. But if you called Arnold’s supporters, “Schwarzenazi’s” (or anything, really) you were just a gutless, hate-filled troll. Even RUSH’s wisdom was questioned here when he came down against him.
Oh yes, a lot of folks couldn’t wait to get their action zero in the governor’s mansion. I wonder how many Republicans that voted for him still live in California?
Arnold is smart, entertainment addicted Americans will vote for Hollywooders in mass numbers at the drop of a hat.
I think safe to say Simpsons did episode on this right was South Park
So that’s the kid now? So funny, they lived right around the corner from my father in law all those years.
“What difference does it make at this time, anyhow?”
