Arnie for Prez!

with 8 comments

Was there any doubt that Arnie would be re-elected?

Steve Sailer has some interesting analysis on the exit polls for California:

According to the national exit poll, Schwarzenegger won 60% of the white vote, 59% of the Asian vote, an above average 26% of the black vote (California blacks are a little more conservative than nationally, but that’s still good), but only 34% of the Hispanic vote. California Hispanics are a little to the left of the national Hispanic voter, so that’s not too bad for Schwarzenegger, but not very good either, especially considering he’s running as a liberal Republican. In California, the white-Hispanic gap was 26 points (60-34), compared to nationally in the House races where it is now 22 points (51-29 at last count). So, Schwarzenegger won big in California despite losing in a landslide among Hispanics.

While Schwarzenegger has done well running as a liberal Republican, it’s time for him to come out of the closet to run as what he really is – a libertarian Republican. Check out the YouTube below which is his 1990 introduction to Milton Friedman’s Free to choose TV series. And it’s time for the Republicans to get going removing that silly restriction that prevents him from running for President.

  3. he did say he would be back!

    He got in by the disgraceful recall ballot monstrosity which ironically caused by Pete Wilson’s messing up privatisation of energy and then showed hr really didn’t have much of a different plan to the old grey Governor.

  6. According to this morning’s SMH (not a relaible source admittedly):

    “This year he has benefited from an unanticipated surge in revenue that spared him a protracted budget battle and allowed him to pour billions into popular programs. …

    He cut bipartisan deals to fight global warming, boost the minimum wage and reduce the cost of medicines. He also made infrastructure – arguably the most eye-glazing topic on the planet – the centre of his legislative focus, underscoring his new brass-tacks approach to governance.”

  7. GOE is right. Arnie says the right things but his actions leave a bit to be desired. Two examples:

    The California government is suing large car manufacturers for the costs it claims to have incurred as a result of climate change.

    Arnie approved a law to outlaw .50 cal rifles (which are not even banned in Australia).

    Nonetheless, it is all relative. I would much prefer Arnie to John Hunt the Coward.

  8. I dont know whether Arnie is a good governor. Why not get someone with a proven record of success? Like Rudi Juliani?
