At least we'll have the necessary infusion of money, now if the budget can stay balanced, we might have chance of pulling through. It was quite refreshing to see prop 57 and 58 pass. The next 2-3 years should be interesting.

In times like these, I'm sure glad we don't have a F@*cking Democrat as a leader!

The Kalifornian's are fussing about him smoking cigars in a tent he has in a courtyard outside his office to get around the "No smoking in state owned buildings rule"

Very nice of you to jump to conclusions like that. Perhaps instead you could use your brain and remember back to when the democrats were blasting him for this bond proposals. Now it looks like they were just slinging mud at him since they are backing him on it.

You mean back when the GOP was bashing Davis for his Bond proposals? The bond proposals that were actually smaller than the ones Arnold just pushed for passage? They weren't just slinging mud were they!

bi-partisanship at its best!

They are in such an economic mess due to the faulty leadership of the last couple of Governors that true Bi-Partisanship is the only real way they will get of of this mess.

He implemented one stop gap measure. Meanwhile, kids are dying in their detention centers, businesses are leaving the state in droves and the mayor in his capital city is operating overtly outside the law. Not to mention that his budget is fraught with wate and programs that cannot be supported in perpetuity.

There will have to be some unpopular decisions made soon if CA is to survive the next decade in any fiscal condition but broke.

All of these problems were handed to him by Democrat Grey Davis and the Democrat controlled legislature. It'll take time. Arnold's the man, but he ain't God

I sure hope you're not talking about San Francisco.

Remember back? What..you think I live there and follow the politics? Actually, Steve (compuwiz1) is someone I know from way back on these forums, and I don't have a problem with him. I am generally annoyed by generalizations, and will point them out as such.

Perhaps instead, you could use your brain, and point out where exactly I said democrats don't do anything bad? They both do this crap, and they both act like spoiled little school children in a gang. It's one of the main reasons why very little gets done.

The problem I have w/ Schwarzenegger is the way in which he took office: effectively a bloodless coup. If he had run in a normal election and won, I would have much more respect for him as governor. It's the same problem I have with the way Bush took office. Of course, I'm mostly over it now in both cases, but it still is a nagging issue for many.

By all measures, Schwarzenegger should really appeal to me as a social liberal/fiscal moderate. I am becoming, however, more and more fiscally conservative and his "borrow and spend" mentality is starting to get on my nerves. That's why I voted against both of his state measures.

can we put an end of the floriduh thing? old f@rts were dumb enough not knowing how to vote when they get sample ballots and later complain about it. bush didn't want the votes to be recounted, gore only wanted the votes in the county that he'd get most of the votes counted. the media called gore winning florida, leading thousands of people not to vote for bush because they felt that their votes won't matter. what's the difference? both sides are hypocritical... get over it.

props for ahnuld:beer:

Jesus, you have got to be fvcking kidding me. A bloodless coup? Exactly how was it a bloodless coup?????????

You'd think liberals would be all in favor of the democratic process. What more power could you give to the people than to have the opportunity to petition and vote for the recall of an elected official who has screwed his state. So fvcking what if the money to fund the effort came from a republican. The people got to vote and they made their choice. How much more democratic could you get. I mean talk about "power to the people".

But I guess the democratic process is only reserved for democrats right?

EDIT: And get over the Bush election. I can't believe some of you are still stupid enough to buy the "Bush stole the election" BS spewed by morons like Michael Moore. Seriously people, we have had the electoral college system for a long time. You'd think people would understand it by now.

Counties won by Gore: 677
Counties won by Bush: 2436
Population of counties won by Gore: 127 Million
Population of counties won by Bush: 143 Million
Square miles of country won by Gore: 580,000
Square miles of country won by Bush: 2,427,000
States won by Gore: 19
States won by Bush: 29

Sorta like the opposite of a southern democrat.

Northern/left coast Republicans and Southern Democrats, are moderates.

It wasnt unannounced, they had plugged Arnold and Davis throughout the day before and the day of that show.
