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.
“I vill be de virst Terminator in Chief!”
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?”
While “changing the law”, they may also lift the ban on Obama’s third term.
Then they can have a debate together and Ahnold can insist that the entire debate be in Austrian.
Does anybody realize what kind of a low life self serving scumbag Schwarzenegger would have to be in order to even try to change the constitution. What happened to natural born Americans running for president. Does anyone see that the game is intentionally rigged. The left is doing everything it can to destroy every aspect of the old USA.
The US Constitution is a racist document that should be ignored.
One source said: "Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules."Uh, the "legal paperwork" required is a Constitutional amendment. Based on that alone, it's possible that this story is a phony.
The rules have already been changed. The Constitutional definition for a natural born citizen as required by Article 2 requires that both parents be U.S. citizens at time of birth. Since obama was allowed to run for President( naturalized, one parent U.S. Citizen), the 14th amendment would allow Schwarzenegger to run for the office. Both are technically naturalized citizens. Congress can not pick and choose when they want to enforce article 2, it must apply fairly with all citizens.
This question came up ten years ago, when Arnold ran for governor, and he said he didn’t want the Constitution amended just for him. What has changed his mind since then?
That’s another reason this looks bogus.
Of course, he’d only get a free pass from the partisan media shills for his philandering, divorce, and national origin if he switched parties before he announced. The Demagogic Party would have 100,000 astroturf staff on the streets getting signatures for the ballot proposals to amend, and have his ex-wife give a ringing endorsement of his candidacy (more ringing than “I believe my husband’s story” about Chappaquiddick from Joan).
On what grounds does he think he could get the law changed?
Amen! But Obama really did set precedence for him to run if he hides the documents. What Obama did is really serious. Obama may not have been born outside the nation, he may even have real American born parents for all we know (we have not seen any documented proof who his parents really are). Still, he ignored the Constitution and did not prove his eligibility. It may have been intentional (even though he's got nothing to hide) so the doors will be open for others not born in the US to run.
Get on the birther wagon and impeach this man or the precedence has been set forever.
Birtherism is not an implication that Obama was born outside the US. It implies that Obama refused to prove his eligibility based on his birth records.
I was working in the Official Records Office at the County Courthouse in York County, PA, in 1974 and can verify that Arnold has a valid birth certificate and it is totally, totally real and official. But nobody can see it. Just because. I made a copy. Take a look:
Everything about Obama is suspicious. He can't say 2 words without lying. So it's natural to be suspicious about his birth, his education, everything. All politicians lie, but Obama has elevated lying into an art form.
Plus Obama has demonstrated that he can violate any law he wants to and get away with it. So far he has been successful since no one appears willing to seriously challenge him. The law regarding the president's citizenship status is now worthless. If Arnold wanted to run without an amendment or revocation of the law, I doubt he would be stopped. We are now a lawless nation.
I just don't like Arnold and wouldn't vote for him no matyer the circumstances.
Even if I wanted Arnold, and I don’t, it would mean that the UN would run multiple candidates every chance they hand.
Not happening unless the U.S. Constitution gets amended that changes the "Natural Born Citizenship" requirement for eligibility to be President or Vice-President to something like "Citizen, either Natural Born or Nationalized".
Amending the U.S. Constitution can be done by either getting 2/3rds of each house of Congress to vote to approve an amendment, then they must send it to the states, where 3/4 of the state legislatures must vote to ratify the proposed amendment. The second way requires a Constitutional Convention, where 2/3 of the states must petition Congress to convene a Constitutional Convention and then 3/4 of the states must ratify any amendment to comes out of a Convention.
My own two cents on this, no way will the Constitution get amended to formally allow Nationalized Citizens to become citizens in Arnold's lifetime. Who knows what will happen in 30 or more years, especially if the illegals ever get amnestied and become citizens.
That’s easy! He WON!
The Rhino Rhineland ‘Rnold....
See tag line. I’ve had it since the California recall that got the Grovelnator erected.
He is as eligible as Obama ever was.
It doesn’t matter. He would not win even a primary.
This British/Indonesian/whatever guy just walked in to the White House and no one stopped him. So why not an Austrian?
He must be trying to win Maria back... A Kennedy in the White House is all we need!/s
Can’t say i care, I appose altering the Constitution for such a trivial matter, but I also recognize that if Conservatives are going to stand any chance we need an actor, preferably a minority actor to “lead” us in the same capacity Obama “Leads” the democrats.
Didn’t know Arnie was Amish!
Such a change allowing Schwarzenegger should only happen after an amendment allowing a state to be thrown out of the United States (start with Californication).
PA Dutch just means, "German."
No thanks, Ahnold. Go back to Hollyweird or Austria please.
Just retire Ahhnold.
Clinton could be his wingman.
That's right. The "natural born Citizen" requirement for the Commander in Chief has been removed from the Constitution by popular vote and a complicit media.
Prince George is now eligible (according to those people), and could be sworn in so long as hollywood, the state run media and 50.1% of the voting sheeple think he's cool enough.
The security provision mandated by the founders and framers means nothing to most Americans today.
