    Through an appearance on NBC's “Meet the Press” and through other actions of late, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has put the GOP on notice that he's the governor of every Californian and not just fellow Republicans. “I will run as an Arnold Republican, which is I am there to govern and to serve the people of California, meaning Democrats and Republicans, even though there are some on the right wing that are not happy about that,” Schwarzenegger told host Tim Russert about his bid for re-election. Good for Arnold. It's exactly the right message, and it comes at exactly the right...

    Dear Governor: November 9, 2005 06:19 AM EST There is no such thing as a fusion candidate, no such thing as a bipartisan campaign or a non-partisan issue, and come election night, there are just two parties, one at the GOP HQ and one at the Dem HQ. There's a winners' party and a losers' party. Last night you were speaking to the losers' party. I didn't go. Why bother?

    Team Arnold lost his Big Four measures -- Propositions 74 through 77 -- on the California ballot Tuesday because this band of political hired guns deserved to lose. They ran a cynical campaign. After Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's big recall-election win in 2003 and his successful fight in 2004 against some well-funded ballot measures -- like the two Big Casino measures and a three-strikes makeover that rode high in the polls until he opposed it -- the team figured he could sell anything to the California voter. So they didn't do a careful job of lining up initiatives with curb appeal...

    <p>The outcome suggests that Schwarzenegger is not as good a negotiator as he thinks he is, or at least those skills weren't evident in this round. He was smart to demand more than he needed and then scale back from there. And he was smart to abandon the concept of a formula-driven spending cap. But in the end, he swung too far in the other direction. This looks as if his only bottom line was ending the negotiations with a deal, any deal. And now, to make it worse, he has begun to try to sell this package as more than it is. He should just admit the truth: this is the best he could get from the Democrats. It's a harmless first step but not nearly enough to achieve the goal he set for himself and the state. More work will have to be done.</p>

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is displaying a distinctly non-tough guy approach to confronting his fellow candidates in the recall election. Mr. Schwarzenegger is planning to avoid this afternoon's televised recall debate (4-6 p.m.) and says he will participate in only one of the several other debates that are being scheduled for the weeks to come. The actor's campaign announced that he will be part of the Sept. 17 debate sponsored by the California Broadcasters Association, for which the candidates will get the questions in advance. That will allow candidates to prepare responses, making it easier to avoid gaffes from unexpected questions. That...

    It is certainly no secret that the characters portrayed by movie actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the leading Republican candidate in the gubernatorial recall election, have an affinity for guns. Big guns. Powerful guns. Futuristic guns. A lot of guns of all types used in nearly every conceivable way to terminate, with extreme prejudice, human beings, aliens and a robot or two. To some Californians, that make-believe violenc e places a special responsibility on Schwarzenegger to clearly spell out his views on regulating the availability of real guns to real people -- something he began to do last week. Meanwhile, groups advocating...

    Back to top What is your position on undocumented immigrants? I came to California 35 years ago because I saw this state as the best place on earth to fulfill my dreams. Immigrants contribute to the richness of life in California, and I embrace them. Border enforcement is a federal responsibility. However, state taxpayers currently bear the costs of providing public services to undocumented immigrants, such as incarcerating undocumented immigrants in the state prison system. I will work with other border states, the President, and the U.S. Congress to increase federal reimbursements for these costs. Proposition 187 has been resolved...

    By Adam Tanner SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Seeking to add muscle to his team, Arnold Schwarzenegger named financial heavyweight Warren Buffett (news - web sites) his senior economic adviser on Wednesday as the actor prepared a high-profile run for California governor. Reuters Photo   Late in the day, state election officials certified a final list of 135 candidates after rejecting more than 100 applications as incomplete.

    Republicans ravenous for pyrrhic victories are playing dumb about Schwarzenegger's obvious liberalism Liberals in the California media always counsel the Republican Party to run liberal Republicans like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Do Republicans think journalists offer this avuncular advice because they have the GOP's best interests at heart? Let's take a wild guess here and say that journalists don't stay up late at night fretting over the welfare of the Republican Party. Why then do they promote the Riordans and the Schwarzeneggers? Because they want the Republican Party to adopt the liberalism of their party. Me-too Republicanism is music to the liberal...

    The self-delusion of some star-struck conservatives here is stunning. In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they insisted Arnold was a fiscal conservative, just because he said so. This arrogant proclamation, with no evidence to back it up, was enough for these Arnold-bots. Then today, he dropped a bomb-shell and declared tax-loving, Hillary Clinton supporter Warren Buffett as his economic advisor. When faced with such repudiation of their fantasy, one expects most people to concede their mistake. But not the Arnie-bots. They still insist Arnold is a conservative, just because he has chosen a billionaire to head his...

    How Arnold (and Pete Wilson) Will Do ItBy David HorowitzFrontPageMagazine.com | August 13, 2003 A key to Arnold Schwarzenegger's prospects in the coming recall election is one that few have taken notice of: His campaign is being run by the most brilliant California Republican campaigner since Ronald Reagan. Former governor Pete Wilson, who is chairman of the Schwarzenegger campaign, shares Arnold's centrist brand of Republican politics, which is the only kind of Republican politics that can win at the state level. Even Ronald Reagan left issues like abortion on the back burner when he led California Republicans to victory. This is...
