Arnold's Speech
    #3077547 - 09/01/04 12:01 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

This guy is starting to look like the Manchurian Candidate... any thoughts?

I was trying to imagine myself watching this from some cave in afghanistan or a terrorist training camp and man the speech from Arnold (and Bush's daughters (looked like an mtv awards show..)) probably enraged terrorists. Has anybody found a link to the transcript?

What did you think of Arnold's speech? Do you think he's going to attempt to change the rules in the future and run for pres himself?

Arnold is Arnold. I like his speeches when he comes out with the girly men accusations.

and no he doesn't have the power to change the presidential rules, nor would the masses support it even though they are uncurably ignorant.

What did you think of Arnold's speech?

It was a series of meaningless, empty catchphrases put together in a sequence.

honestly alex, did you write that speech? it just... the way you describe it sounds so Alex-ish. "meaningless, empty catchphrases"... Heck, thats almost your tagline! Now if only someone had asked him a direct question that he avoided and brought up off-topic non sequitors, I'd know that you wrote it.

ok, now I'm starting to like you...

check out the 'Judgement Day' thread I started, it's
got a great breakdown of the speech.

unfortunately, Arnold is just a GOP pawn used to woo
the idiot vote. The guy has a decent stance on things,
but working for those henchmen is bound to taint him
or his rep.

"In a speech sprinkled with humour, he repeated a line drawn from a Saturday Night Live comedy skit that caused controversy when he used it to ridicule opponents in California.

"To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: Don't be economic girlie men," said Schwarzenegger to gales of laughter and loud applause. "

I thought it was one of the finest pieces of political theater I have ever seen. The series of "if this....then you're a Republican" phrases was brilliant.

I thought his speech was loaded with his ideals and ideas and touched extensively on current events.

I don't understand how liberals can be against Arnold. He served in the military in Special Forces where he was attacked by unknown enemies, managing to defeat them. He prevented the nuclear destruction of New York by Crimson Jihad, a militant Islamic group. How many purple hearts do you think he earned in the true-life event that inspired Predator?

And you sound so TOYK-ish. We're all waiting for you to flood the board again with "I hate niggers" posts and threaten to "bring down the shroomery".

Now, do you have anything on-topic to say?

PS, don't forget to rate me again. You've rated me 5 times with everyone of your other puppets remember  :rolleyes:

Then again, I guess it was nice seeing Arnold saying "We can disagree and still be americans". That must've stuck in the craw of the far right type who think anyone who disagrees with them over Iraq is a communist.

Americans can be communists if they want. It doesn't make them non-Americans, it just makes them American communists.

Arnold had a great speech. His story is inspirational. Any man with a good looks and steroids can come to America and start out in the porn industry and work his way up. It shows that in America you can be Governor of one of the most liberal states even when your father was a Nazi. You don't even have to have a firm grasp on the English language!

Seriously, I thought that Arnold gave a great speech. My wife thought it was one of the best speeches she has ever heard. Apparently, Republican Governors of California that are former actors can give great speeches.

My favorite part is when he talked up Nixon. Liberals the world over were pissing their pants and smashing their TV sets. More than ever, this country needs a little dose of Richard Milhaus Nixon. We need to dig him up, get some tissue samples and clone him.
