He’s Back: Schwarzenegger Wants to Run for President
« on: October 19, 2013, 01:22:49 PM »
Just like his character in the Terminator films, Arnold Schwarzenegger keeps coming back for more. The action star and former governor of California is reportedly mulling a run for the White House, despite the fact he's completely unqualified.

The New York Post has the scoop,
Quote
We’re told Ahnold has been openly talking about his political ambitions while in New York to promote his new movie with Sylvester Stallone, “Escape Plan.”

One source said: “Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.”


Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria and became a United States citizen in 1983, must file a legal challenge to the constitutional provision that says the president must be a “natural born citizen.” If the actor-politician’s aspirations are sincere, he’ll have to succeed in amending a centuries-old law.

In addition to changing that pretty important clause, Schwarzenegger would also have to overcome his poor polling. When the "governator" left office in January 2011, he achieved a mere 22 percent approval rating. Not exactly winning numbers for someone hoping to win the highest office in the nation. But, if anyone can do it, I suppose it would be the Terminator.

Do you think Schwarzenegger should put his name on the ballot? Or should he stick to the silver screen?

The only way he could run is if they amend the Constitution.  Any lawsuit should be laughed out of court.

Of course, I guess it doesn't really matter given the current occupier of the White House.

"challenge the rules"

To hell with the rules.

Just get a fakes ID like the Poser in Chief.

Among the so-called elitist class of people, there is a group so enamored with themselves that they refuse to face reality and pursue their dreams as if they were normal.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of them.  :laugh:
