    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told a German newspaper this month that the Republican Party needs to "cross the center line" — that is, to slide toward the left. He couldn't be more wrong — and more disloyal to real Republicanism. The comment made it clear he's part of the only group more disappointed than the Democrats with last month's election results: liberal Republicans.

    "Are you, like, the governor?" a second grader asked Maria Shriver Schwarzenegger during a visit to his school. "That's a really loaded question," Shriver answered with a smile, the San Jose Mercury News reported. all that loaded it seems. The governor’s wife is seen as a force to be reckoned with in the California state capitol, the News explained. There’s nothing new about the glamorous TV reporter working alongside her husband. The News says she’s long been a full partner in Arnold Schwarzenegger's business affairs. "I've always been interested in helping Arnold with whatever he was doing. I want him...
  • Arnold Pardons Druggies

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger pardoned three men yesterday who were convicted of drug charges in the 1970s, marking the first state pardons in six years. The actions are a turnaround from the policy of Gov. Gray Davis, who never pardoned a convict during his 4½ years in office. Schwarzenegger has also been more aggressive than his predecessor at paroling convicted murderers and kidnappers, freeing dozens in his first year in office compared with the eight life-term inmates Davis paroled. The governor's office said in a statement the pardoned men, each 53 years old, had committed nonviolent crimes and rebounded by contributing...

    ARNOLD Schwarzenegger, Republican governor of California and the biggest celebrity in the world, is still a political novice. His recent advice to the GOP reflects this. In an interview in Germany last week, Schwarzenegger said he wanted to see the Republican Party move to the left politically so it can win more elections. “The Republican Party currently covers only the spectrum from the right wing to the middle, and the Democratic Party covers the spectrum from the left to the middle,” he said. “I would like the Republican Party to cross this line, move a little further left and...

    LA Daily News ^ | 10/17/04 | David M. Drucker
    SACRAMENTO -- Reversing Gov. Gray Davis' near zero-tolerance policy against paroling convicted murderers, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proven to be 50 times more likely to give second chances to killers. Democrat Davis, in his five years in office, blocked all but six parole recommendations for killers and kidnappers, with two of the recommendations involving the same inmate. Republican Schwarzenegger, in office less than 12 months, has approved 60 parole recommendations from the state Board of Prison Terms for convicts guilty of the most serious crimes. That makes him, on average, 50 times more lenient than Davis. But Schwarzenegger aides dispute...

    Friday night, I was listening to AM 630, WMAL Talk Radio. They are the radio station in Washington, DC that has both Rush and Hannity. The local host at night is Chris Core. Most of the time, I get the feeling he really isn't as set in his opinions, as stated on the air. Last nigth was not an acception. He was arguing that the Constitution should be changed to allow naturalized citizens to become president of the United States. No one even brought up the one reason I will never support such a change. No matter how long a...

    NCPA Daily Policy Digest ^ | Dec. 17, 2004 | Wesley J. Smith
    California’s Proposition 71, a $3 billion initiative to fund stem cell research, is a bad idea for a state currently in a budget crisis, says Wesley J. Smith of the Weekly Standard. Additionally, the initiative is fuzzy with few checks and balances. For one thing, the $3 billion would have to be borrowed, adding another $3 billion in interest onto its price tag. Moreover, the bill is simply vague and controversial, says Smith: Prop 71 is not merely a law to permit stem cell research, but a constitutional right to human cloning, meaning any changes to its terms and conditions...

    Report: Schwarzenegger suggests U.S. Republicans move leftward Associated Press BERLIN - California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger suggested in a German newspaper interview published Saturday that the Republican Party should move "a little to the left," a shift that he said would allow it to pick up new voters. Schwarzenegger, a Republican, has taken an unorthodox approach since winning office last year - standing by a promise to toe a conservative line of fiscal matters while veering left on social issues such as gay rights and the environment. In an interview with Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily, Schwarzenegger said that "the Republican Party...

  • Schwarzenegger Says Pro-Bush Speech Cost Him Sex

    California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Monday that his speech backing President Bush at the Republican Convention in August resulted in a dramatic cold shoulder from his wife Maria Shriver, a member of the very Democratic Kennedy family. "Well, there was no sex for 14 days," Schwarzenegger told former White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta in an on-stage conversation in front of 1,000 people. "Everything comes with side effects." The crowd roared with laughter, but the governor may have been serious: he has said little in public to back fellow Republican Bush since then. Panetta, a Democrat, had asked...

  • [WA Sen. Maria] Cantwell loans broke election rules, says FEC [liberals get off scot-free again]

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Maria Cantwell broke federal election laws by not promptly disclosing emergency loans made late in her 2000 campaign against Slade Gorton, the Federal Election Commission has ruled. The ruling came as a result of a complaint filed in April 2001 by the National Legal and Policy Center, an independent interest group that tracks campaign financing. It alleged that Cantwell, D-Wash., violated election law by not disclosing the loan and by getting an interest rate below market rates. At issue were two loans totaling $3.8 million extended to Cantwell from a branch of U.S. Bank in Bellevue in...

He recently came under attack for a 1977 interview he gave to Oui magazine, wherein he admitted to engaging in group sex at a gym and receiving oral sex during bodybuilding competitions.
