Are we about the quote a Republican? You know, favorably? You bet we are. Aimed at his fellow Republicans, particularly Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, California Governor and all around bad ass Arnold Schwarzenegger had this to say:
“I find it interesting that you have a lot of the Republicans running around, and pushing back on the stimulus money and saying, ‘This doesn’t create any new job.’ And then they go out and do the photo ops, posing with the big check and they say: ‘Isn’t this great, look at the kind of money I’ve provided for the state and this is money to create jobs, and this has created 10,000 new jobs, this has created 20,000 news jobs, and all those kinds of things.’ It doesn’t match up. … I don’t want to beat up on my Republican colleagues but I think it is kind of politics rather than thinking about one thing, and this is: ‘How do we support the president? How do we support him and everything we can in order to go and stimulate the economy back and think about the people and not the politics?’ … Anyone that says this hasn’t created a job, they should talk to the 150,000 people getting jobs in California – from the private sector and also from the public sector.”
I was going to make a funny Schwarzenegger joke to end this, then I realized after this many years as the governor of California, every single possible joke has been made, usually numerous times, so I’ll refrain. I will say that it is nice to see a Republican say something that isn’t completely nonsensical for once.
