PHOENIX (AP) — Action-movie star Steven Seagal says he is considering a run for Arizona governor.

The “Marked for Death” actor told KNXV-TV that he is considering a shot at the state’s highest office and has had a talk about the bid with the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America.

What's the opinion on this? Another Ah-Nuld! waiting to happen, or a chance at securing the border with a big middle finger to the Obama admin?

As far as I'm aware, Brewer cannot run again under Arizona law, since a full four year term would violate the 8 year limit imposed by the constitution. Though I've liked some of her actions as governor there, she screwed the pooch on Obamacare.

Yeah, but you know as I do that if he runs, he’s going to win. Just like Ah-Nuld! Question is, is he trash or an asset?

Well I guess you held that opinion with Reagan also? Though I am first to admit he may have been the rare exception.

He is an eco-wacko, animal rights nut, Buddhist-because-its-vogue, he has kids named Kunzang and Kentaro.

He is one of those Hollyweird creatures who takes up causes because they are “in”.

I was about 8 when Reagan was elected.

Seagal made an anti-Capitalist movie set in Alaska against the Oil Industry.

“My opinion is: NO Celebrities in political office. ever.”

Well, that would have excluded Reagan. But I understand where you are coming from.

Personally, I think we should have strict term limits, and that every candidate for political office should be required to sit in a room and be given a grand total of five hours to write an essay about what they believe and what they will do if they are elected. This should be monitored more strictly than the SAT (or any other standardized test) such that there is no chance for them to get outside assistance.

The essay of each candidate should then be posted publicly, and be available online, and the essays should be used as a basis to ask questions of the candidates in public forums. If elected, any candidate whose policy pursuits stray from what they wrote should automatically come up for a recall vote.

What are his views on things like cutting taxes and government and repealing/nullifying Obamacare? Are there any fatal gaffes in his background that he won’t be able to deftly or skillfully handle?

I am amazed at the FReepers who think Ronald Reagan is running for office again.

Ronald Reagan had nothing in common with the Hollywierd of today.

The fatal gaffe seems to be that he’s a stealth liberal. No dice, Seagal. Stick to your judo movies I say.

I'll admit that I like some of his movies, but if I lived in Arizona, I wouldn't vote for him.

Another Ah-Nuld! waiting to happen, or a chance at securing the border with a big middle finger to the Obama admin?

More likely a "Greenie" version of Jesse Ventura most likely if he does run. If he runs as a Republican I'll be shocked. Ever see On Deadly Ground?

He’s not stealth anything. He may be conservative on immigration, but he also gave us the movie “On Deadly Ground.”

He would likely be worse than crazy Jesse. Yeah, we need to rally behind some prospective candidate early to disuade this, because you can bet your bottom dollar if Arizonans elect McLame, they’d elect Seagal.

I trained in the same art he did and I take exception to your describing him as a ‘fat pig’. I saw a hundred pound woman take on 5 attackers from all directions and not one at a time to earn her black belt. He is the baddest fat guy you would ever have the misfortune to meet and if you do I would advise strongly against calling him that. Just a FRiendly piece of advice.

He's so tough he had to beat his ex wife Kelly Lebrock.

Do a search of "steven seagal sexual harassment", he's got quite a reputation.

Hopefully Seagal’s political career works out as well as his buddy Anderson Silva did against Chris Weidman.

I heard he used to be married to actress Kelly LeBrock, and was very abusive to her. Who really knows the truth? She does look quite weathered these days.

Didn’t intend to make it personal or about you, hence my ending that Reagan was probably the only exception. Sorry if you took a light hearted poke wrong, but after looking I guess several of us poked you with that stick. Take care, I actually agree with you.

I don’t require your advice.

He is a fat pig. Hence always wearing rain slickers to cover his girth.

I studied Hapkido and Aikido.

He can still kick my fat ass and I’d laugh about it while recovering in ICU....

He is an even more arrogant person than Schwartznegger;
Global Warmist, Anti-mining, anti-natural resource of an kind use, anti-business. (other than Seagal Enterprises).

And highly over-rated as a martial artist.

Arizona would probably be better off getting John McCain to quit the Senate and be Governor.....
Or even Meghan.

He’s been the subject of multiple blind items, and none of it was good. If even 10% were true, he’s a detriment to the Republic Party if that’s the line he’s running on.

Just a sample of what he brings to the table
