In the age of Trump, Schwarzenegger wants centrist GOP
AP ^ | March 21, 2018 | Michael R. Blood

he year was 1990 and Republican U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson claimed his first term as California governor, replacing another Republican, George Deukmejian. Two years earlier, California voters helped send George H.W. Bush to the White House with a 3.6-point win over Democrat Michael Dukakis.

Nearly three decades later, so much has changed.

Democrats have monopolized California government, with the party holding every statewide office and dominating both chambers of the Legislature.

Oh, great - the muscle-bound maid-bonker has joined up with the Son Of A Mailman in order to whine about the direction the party is going.

Someone should tell them that THEIR party is OVER and that both of them are long past their 15 minutes of fame.

Get lost, Arnold, and take care of rearing your illegitimate son. Hopefully, he will be a more honorable man than his father.

People were all about Arnie when he gave his “I am a republican” speech.

Even when he went on to embrace homosexual “rights” and homosexual “marriage”.

I never bought in. Go screw your maid, meathead.

This is what happens to centrists.



The country is so polarized right now a Centrist Party could hold their convention in a large booth at Denny's.

“Centrist”

The “center” has been moving relentlessly to the left for many decades, but lately mainstream America hasn’t been following along. It’s not really centrist at all.

I’m centrist on some issues, but I don’t see a centrist GOP.

Hell, I think Trump is pretty centrist on a whole lot of issues. Trump is an old school Democrat on trade.

The Bush League Republicans are determined to see to fruition George H.W. Bush’s dream of turning the USA into North Mexico before he dies.

Arnold successfully destroyed the GOP in California so he’s now ready to take his act to the next level!
