According to Rupert Murdoch's NY Post, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been lobbying for support to change the law to allow him to run for President in 2016.
Didn't he leave California even worse than when he was elected as The Great White Hope? Oh and he fucks the help.
Jesus tittyfucking Christ, that's some hubris right there.
Where's the Sociopath Troll when you need him?
That would be so republican. They had a fit when they thought Obama wasn't a true American, but they'd vote for someone who was born in Austria.
Arnold sounds like a narcissist. Let's change the constitution just for him!
Dodn't he write an autobiography that bombed?

And a new movie that's a bomb, "Escape Plan" which is opening at Number 4. He couldn't beat a three week old Sandra Bullock flick. Looosah!
Schwarzenegger fucked the maid and had a kid in his wife's house. President my ass.
It'll never happen
I keep seeing articles about this and all of them eliminate the pesky fact that a Constitutional Amendment requires approval by 3/4s of all state legislatures.
In this Patriot Act Era where the Bill of Rights is a tattered remnant of its former self, I can't help but wonder if the writers are trying to deceive the readers into thinking that amending the Constitution is a far simpler process than it is.
Don't think this is true. I thought after getting beat up as CA governor he decided to live out his old age making more shitty movies with Sly Stallone. He's got his hands full convincing Patrick he doesn't hate him for being gay, avoiding the maid's kid, trying to convince Maria she's just being a prude and to take him back, etc.
We can do without your opinions Gray Davis.
I had heard years ago that Orrin Hatch wanted this to happen.
And I want to fuck Angie Dickinson. We'll see which one of us gets there first.
He won't get the women vote and more women than men vote.
Anytime a proposal calls for a constitutional amendment, you can be sure that it will never happen and that its proponents are not serious people.
It's news filler after the come-down over the debt ceiling. I want to type sealing for some reason.
Call me suspicious, but I think this is Murdoch's way of pivoting the discussion away from bad foreigner (Obama) to good foreigner (Ahnold) and finally to even better foreigner (Cruiz).
After all, his readers/viewers need this fed to them in very small bites.
2016 is the first year we can elect a woman. Why bother with tired old men?
Steroids for everyone! Make Octoberfest a national holiday! Mildred Baena for first lady! He will spend his vacations making action movies! Entertainment at the White Housw will include Wagnerian operas! I detest him and it wil never happen...like the asshole Donald Trump- it's all publicity cause he is irrelevant.
Not a chance in hell....
But he doesn't want to be a father.
Schwarzenegger is a douchebag who is over. He never appealed to me; don't like his movies. And now that we know about his personal life, there is no way he should be president. Besides, he was a shitty governor.
I gotta say he looks pretty good with a beard.
I am also an 80's action star who looks better with a beard.
He needs to get rid of that horrible accent first, then we'll think about it!
He has a movie coming out.
It's just PR.
he was a HORRIBLE governor, who wouldn't have been reelected as he was universally hated by GOP & democrats. that and the whole i fucked the maid and had a secret baby would eliminate him, even the law could be changed. and the worst of his past would come out in a presidential run like letting old dudes muscle worship him for money as a youth (though they are probably all dead now), and the stream of black and mexican street hookers who used to go in and out of his "office" above his old restaurant, schaatzi on main.
there is LOTS of dirt on him, that i was always shocked never appeared during his gubernatorial campaign, but would certainly come out in a presidential bid.
I hope he runs. You can't have too many freakshow Republicans running for President.
this is true, r36. i think a debate with rick santorum, rick perry, donald trump, sarah palin, ted nugent and ahnold would be AMAZING.
If Arnold Schwarzenegger were allowed to run for president, do you think he would choose Tom Arnold to he his V.P.?
I think he would have trouble getting the women vote now that they know he fucked the maid and hid a child from his family for ten years. He denied the little bastard brothers and sisters.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
