Peas In A Pod
George W. Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger are very similar. In ideology, they are government bathtub drowners. No matter the problem, a good tax cut for the wealthy is always the answer. As GOP darling, Tom DeLay would say, "Nothing is more important in the face of war than cutting taxes".
Both Bush and Schwarzenegger have broken promise after promise. But when they are very unpopular and facing the prospects of an embarassing election, they both pander, pander, pander. In the 2003 recall, Schwarzenegger promised to be a different kind of Governor, a uniter not a divider, if you will. Bush showed us what he meant by that when he attacked critics as unpatriotic. We saw what Schwarzenegger meant by that as he started calling critics "girlie men" and "stooges" and heaped nothing but vitriol on our teachers and nurses. All of a sudden, he's trying to play nice? I find it strange that he waited until an election year to do so.
From 2004 to early 2006, California got a different Schwarzenegger than we voted for in 2003. Is the suddenly new Schwarzenegger of 2006 real, or just a mirage like 2003 Schwarzenegger. I, for one, am not ready to trust him for four more years.
