The Governator Attacks "Girly Man" Obama

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger campaigned for Senator John McCain yesterday in Columbus, Ohio. Schwarzenegger did not call Obama a "girly man", but that was the clear inference from his remarks. AFP reports:

Muscleman-turned-actor-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger called on Barack Obama to beef up his his policies -- and his body -- at a high-voltage campaign rally for Republican John McCain Friday.

Schwarzenegger, the Hollywood action hero who is now the Republican governor of California, delighted a crowd of several thousand at a McCain campaign event in Ohio by ridiculing both Obama's policies and his slender physique.

The Austrian-born former Mr Universe has hosted a bodybuilding tournament in Columbus for several years, and opened his address by inviting Obama to participate in the next event.
"Every year in March I come here to organize the Arnold Classic, which is all about building the body and pumping," Schwarzenegger said.

"That's why I want to invite Senator Obama because he needs to do something about those skinny legs. I'm going to make him do some squats.

"And then we're going to make him do some biceps curls to beef up those scrawny little arms. But if he could only do something about putting some meat on his ideas.

"Senator McCain on the other hand is built like a rock. His character and his views are solid."

Schwarzenegger's best line of all was this:

"John McCain has served his country longer in a POW camp than his opponent has served in the United State Senate."

The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.

He also stated his concern for the liberal illuminati turning the US into a socialist country. It didn' t work where he came from, and it won't work here.

Now that was one thing he shouldn't have said, because insults didn't work in favor of the GOP. It just made people sympathize with the left-wing illuminati, so we need to lay off of those types of attacks and stick to the facts.
