Well, now he has his toughest project ahead of him. It is going to be tough to get anything passed, but we will see.

I heard on Fox this morning a clip where Davis was saying (paraphrased), "I did my best and I am very happy with everything I have done as Governor."

Wow, he is happy to leave those people in a $38 billion debt.

Now we will see how quick the Liberals are to complain about the economy of California and blame it on Arnold. One word of advice, when Arnold starts blaming the problems on Davis don't listen to liberals.

I'm glad Gumby is gone.
He did nothing but sell out to his constituents.
Fukker buried us. He sold us to the power companies.
He wants the illegals to have licenses. He paid prisoner guards like executives.
Don't let the door hit your worthless azz on the way out Gumby.

cueball1950,

I thought the whole process was a good lesson. The people had lots of choices, it didn't take very long, they had good voter turnout (comparitively), the party lines were blurred to the point where no block did what they were suppose to and the best part is I think it sent a message that if you govern you must do so without spending more than you take in, just as a normal person/family has to. I think that scene on stage where Arnold gave his exceptance speech was the strangest I have ever witnessed in my life. Bleeding liberals( the Kennedy clan ) supporting a fiscally conservative Arnold. The world turned upside down...I don't think anybody knows what Arnold is..... Now on to the big show...this will be fun to watch.....oh goodie goodie.....

Kicked out? Is there something going around in your little country news media to state that Bush will be "kicked" out? Maybe you have read something in the oh-so-reputable BBC that suggests Bush will be "kicked" out.

Cueball, it ain't the Terminator, that we elected; it's "Conan, the Barbarian"...and he's no more qualified to run the state of Calif, then I am.
It,s been 58 years since the end of WWII, and the Germans have finally captured part of the USA
AND..I hear that Sacto Tom cast the swing vote
I told 'em if they elected Arnie, I'd leave the state, and I'll be moving in a month...it's just a coincidence that I had already purchased a home in Wa.

Hey, what makes you so sure? Who woulda believed we could've had a Bonzo-in-Chief? Remember when Reagan was a national JOKE? Well, the joke's on us now ... billionaires can nakedly buy high office, totally unqualified spouses routinely serve when something happens to their hubby ... we're in the era of the barbarian emperor.

You being serious here, eg8r? Somebody else from one of the civilized regions of this country, please back me up on this! Back in the '70s, the idea of Reagan becoming president was a punch line. It was preposterous.

But after that, and the "Love Boat" guy; and Fred Thompson cruising to a Senate seat by driving around Tennessee in a rented red F-150 while sporting fat belt buckles; and a moronic play-wrestler running Minnesota ... really, anything goes, even a Boston billionaire nonentity in lifts claiming to root for the Yankees openly buying City Hall in New York.

If this ain't some twisted kind of mob rule, what is?

Since you seem to not like the celebrity running for office, who would you want in there??? The most qualified person, I would guess. Well that is what happened in California 11 months ago. A while back, the great state of California said, "Look out (referring the rest of the US), we are going to show you how to run a state." What happened...The most qualified governor ran that state into the biggest debt ever (worse than W did in Texas). It is not like he had a problem pushing his policy through, the entire state is run by Democrats. Looks like they ruined everything and no one was there to slow them up. They steamrolled to a 38 billion dollar debt.

Well, since California is so fresh on everyone's mind, can you tell me what "qualifications" did for that state????? How did a "very" qualified man help out California?

But I am, in my way ... well, these are really strange times ... might as well get used to it. Don't have to be solemn to be serious, ya know. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Sounds like a lot to lay on one hapless bureaucrat. I think Davis had plenty of help.

But I think it IS pretty sorry that we're getting so many officeholders who are known only for being well-known. But actors can be mighty convincing, given the right lines, I guess.

Californian politicians were quite smug a little while ago, telling the nation to watch how a government should be run, now that they were completely Democrat (or as close as possible). Well, what did they do, they ran that state into the ground.

As far as celebrities being elected, yup it is happening, and it has happened before. What is important is that if they are elected they bring in people alongside them that do have the qualifications to help out. I am sure Arnold is going to have a tough time from here on out. Not from making wrong decisions, but rather not being able to get anything through.

I thought it was amazing that a completely Democratic state, would bring in a moderate. I really do not think Arnold is a Republican, he is just a reduce-government-spending Democrat. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

At that time, it was the largest tax increase in American history, <font color="blue"> but it was not large enough to derail the economic boom that resulted from his tax cuts</font color>. Bush's ill-advised tax increase in 1990, during a weaker economy, was enough to wreck the gravy train, however.

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote Washington Post:</font><hr> Reagan only increased taxes in 1986 because a Democratic Congress would not reduce spending. In all, Reagan and Bob Dole cut taxes by a net $2.5 trillion during the '80s (Washington Post, 7/12/96).
<hr /></blockquote>

I guess the delta is about $2.5 trillion, sounds like an overall tax CUT for his administration.

Cute pic, Wally. Makes me want to break out the Lee Greenwood songbook!

What I was getting at was the idead that we're electing more and more celebs and billionaires ... which is natural because we worship money and celebrity. It could be argued that this might not be so good for democracy in the long run.

And Reagan was a joke BEFORE he was elected ... though he continued to be one around the world. Think he may well have done a good job leading the charge against the commies, though. Somebody had to put the pressure on them, and Dems never seem to have understood how much the world is like a playground, and that sometimes you have to stand up to the bully.

What drove me crazy about him ... aside from the fact he was a B-movie actor spouting cheap lines ... was waving around that big ol budget ax, hitting on Dems for tax-and-spend, and then doing worse than they ever could by cutting taxes (mainly on the rich -- the bite out of my check increased) and raising defense spending to create the biggest deficit of all time.

Then he slams Dems for being soft on terrorism (fair enough), and swears WE WON'T MAKE DEALS WITH TERRORISTS ... all the while making secret pacts with the Iranians ... not to mention doing it to fund that murderous dirty war that had been explicitly cut off by Congress. Clinton dropping his drawers was nothing compared with all this.

Gee, I wish they'd sing it during the 7th inning stretch.

And eg8r, don't get me wrong ... I'm sick of all these crazy taxes myself ... but I can't stand it when somebody makes a big show of being fiscally responsible, while going on a crazy spree when they think nobody's looking.

Bush I ended up paying for it, and Clinton, too. And now it's happening again ... I realize 9/11 and the wars have plenty to do with that, but maybe it's time to stop blaming the Dems for not being able to balance a budget.

<hr /></blockquote>Don't get me wrong. W is a big spender and I do not agree with with his big spending without any reduction elsewhere. I find it hard to believe W cannot find one single program out there to cut. There is no reason why $20 billion of the 80 bil he is asking for could be sent to Iraq as a loan. Why should we have to foot that bill when they are going to be a prosperous country soon enough and will be able to pay us back.

I don't think anyone is blaming the Dems for not being able to balance the budget. We all know, Bush has played his part in the deficit. The main problem is the economy. That is starting to come around. It will be a slow process, but we are slowly beginning to see it happen.

Definitely, more loans rather than handouts. But maybe there's some diverted cool cash in the pile for pals of W who are involved with the reconstruction?

And it does look like the market, at least, is coming around. If only we could have a quick real estate crash in New York first!
