He was the WORST GOVERNOR ever!!! NO THANK YOU!!! We replaced Grey Davis with Arnold who was NO BETTER!!! Now we have Moonbeam!!!
When the Public “Service” Unions attacked and defeated all the Ballot Propositions that Arnold ran on and succeeded to get on the Ballot, he just gave up and mumbled something about the Voter’s will and that was that.
I think he tried, but he had no idea the power those Unions hold here. They spent tens of Millions and every Proposition Arnold pushed went down in flames.
Had those Propositions passed, things would have been better and Arnold may have ended up being an effective Governor. We’ll never know.
In other words, he could have been a Contender, but he just gave up after that Electoral defeat.
That’s how I saw it at the time.
Been here since I was six years old.
Sad to know what CA was then and now see what it has become.
