Arnold Schwarzenegger: Hasta La Vista, FAILURE

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger discusses the fiscal emergency he declared during a Capitol news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Monday, Dec. 6, 2010. Schwarzenegger asked lawmakers to meet in a special session to close an immediate $6 billion deficit

After the disastrous California Governor Gray Davis and his recall some seven years ago, how could anything else go wrong?

Well, it did and Arnold Schwarzenegger was it – a colossal failure.

In his headier and hunkier days, Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke boldly about how “failure is not an option.” This kind of bravado worked well in the gym–and in a remarkable career that saw an inarticulate Austrian body-builder rise to the apex of Hollywood and California politics.

Arnold never was able to shake off the Hollywood persona and make believe. He has damaged California and the California Republican Party beyond belief.

Good bye Arnold and don’t let the door hit you in the ass as you leave – Hasta La Vista, Baby.

Good riddance.
