The Yolks On You Schwarzenegger...lol
« on: September 03, 2003, 07:02:49 PM »
LONG BEACH, Calif. - Arnold Schwarzenegger was a no-show at the initial debate of California's recall election Wednesday and delivered what was billed as his first major campaign speech, getting pelted with an egg as he waded through a crowd at a college campus
   

Unfazed when the egg hit his left shoulder, the action hero peeled off his coat and went ahead with a 15-minute speech in which he asserted that he is running for governor to give something back to a state responsible for his success. He broke no new ground in the address.


"You have such a fantastic life, Arnold, you make millions of dollars to do movies and all those kinds of things, why do you want to do this?" Schwarzenegger asked rhetorically.


"And you know something, because everything that I've gotten — my career, my money, my family — everything that I've gotten and achieved is because of California," he said to cheers at California State University, Long Beach.


Schwarzenegger said he wasn't bothered by the egging. "This guy owes me bacon now," he joked later. "I mean there's no two ways about it because, I mean, you can't just have eggs without bacon. But this is all part of, you know, the free speech."


Several opponents from La Raza Student Association heckled Schwarzenegger at the speech for his past support of Proposition 187, which sought to deny services to illegal immigrants. They held a sign saying "Hasta la vista Latinos," but supporters drowned out the hecklers with chants of "Arnold, Arnold, Arnold."


Schwarzenegger's address came hours before the debate that featured five other candidates in the race to recall Democratic Gov. Gray Davis (news - web sites), who was given 30 minutes at the outset to make his case. Schwarzenegger, a Republican, has agreed to participate in only one debate, on Sept. 24.


Political observers say Schwarzenegger's absence in the first debate will hurt him.


"He's going to get beaten up for a while" for skipping the debate, said GOP strategist Allan Hoffenblum. "It's not that he's not going to debate, but he's going to do it at his own time."


Talking to reporters after the speech, Schwarzenegger was questioned about his decision to opt out of the debate. He stressed the importance of going up and down the state to get the views of Californians from many walks of life.


"One of my favorite things to do is stand there with people and debate over the issues and then let the people decide," he said.

this looks bad for Arnold. lol  oh well

Camejo in the debate did a really good job in tackling the questions.  Both of the republicans were against illegal immigrants getting their driver license. COME ON now...it is better to have thm driving with a licencse and insurance than making them drive on the low...which they will do anyway

Just a lot of political B.S. from Arnold.

The only candidate who still has the ability to think is Peter Comejo; I was at a mosque in Sacremento when he held a forum to turn out Muslim voters.  He used to do some work with Malcolm X back in the day.

Funny that out of all the hundreds of candidates, to you; only the one candidate who visits a mosque has the ability to think.  That seems a little clouded, bigoted, whatever you want to call it.

I think Arnold handled it well, he joked about it, what other way could he have handled it.
