Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hands the state budget package to his Legislative Secretary, Chris Kahn after signing it during a ceremony at his Capitol office in Sacramento, Calif., Friday, Feb. 20, 2009
Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, head of his party in the Golden State, is taking a pass on the big spring GOP convention in Sacramento this weekend — where, let’s face it, the long knives are out for him — to meet with President Obama in the nation’s capital.
While the Republicans are railing against Schwarzenegger on taxes and considering censuring their own who voted for the state budget, Schwarzenegger sidesteps it all: He’s in Washington, D.C., for the National Governor’s Association get-together, meeting with Obama and other administration officials on climate change and key economic topics.
Arnold may was well suck up to Obama for his next political job because he could not be elected to dogcatcher in California.
Flap would be surprised if Arnold before the end of his term of office in 2010 doesn’t leave the Republican Party.
Schwarzenegger and GOP are NOT a good fit.
