Arnold Grades Barack An “A”
If Arnold Schwarzenegger were your typical politician he’d never make it in the Republican Party; but, then, if he were typical, he never would have risen to become the governator in the first place. He told John King of CNN that Obama deserves high marks, sayng “When it comes to effort, [Obama] should get a straight A.”
“He’s out there with tremendous energy and he’s selling his ideas. And he has great enthusiasm there. He’s a great speaker, a great communicator.”
The one-time Hollywood action star also had some advice for Obama as the president tries to push his agenda through Capitol Hill’s partisanship.
“He has to hang in there,” Schwarzenegger told King, “be tough, just continue on, never give up, eventually he’s going to get all those things done.”
The California governor was echoing the sentiments of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg who joined Schwarzenegger in the interview on State of the Union.
Looks like no tea parties for either the California governor or the New York mayor.Click here for reuse options!
