Goobernator vetoes Iraq pullout

Governor Schwarzenoodle vetoed “legislation that would have allowed Californians to vote on an advisory measure calling for President Bush to immediately withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq.” Following in the typical fashion of the other Republicans, he refused to let the people speak, or even listen to them. The Goobernator claimed that it “would only further divide voters and shift attention from other critical issues that must be addressed.”

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced early Wednesday he had vetoed legislation that would have allowed Californians to vote on an advisory measure calling for President Bush to immediately withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq.

The Republican governor said in a statement that a proposed ballot measure on the war would further divide Californians as they go to the polls in the Feb. 5 presidential primary.

Schwarzenegger has tried to steer a middle course on the issue, saying he supports the troops and the war on terror but also backs a “timetable for withdrawal.”

No Arnold, what you support, is yourself. Let something happen to your state, like what happened in Louisiana. Let it happen, and you don’t have your National Guard there to help. I will be there to remind you of your stupid beliefs! WE THE PEOPLE! Maybe you should get a better grasp of that concept. FYI, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. It’s a failed war, by a failed president. The worst president ever! A war that never should have happened. If you fail to listen to the people, you are as doomed as Bush is. Failed policies do not make for great legacies. One thing good can be said of you though. You can’t ever be president! Thank GOD for that.

    Daniel,
    as a Californian myself, who sympathizes with you on the above policies, I am totally opposed to using the Initiative process to make a statement. The conservatives have done this for years using Props: 187, 209, and 22 to allow people to express their prejudices against immigrants, minority students, and gays respectively.
    The initiative process should be used to make reforms to our political system here in the state.

    Anything that gets people involved in the political process is a good thing. And when the will of the people becomes clear, it is that which needs to be implemented in some appropriate manner.

    This deal where so many politicians/office holders stand on their side and flip the bird at the general voting public, with the system presenting no real avenue of redress is just sick.
