At least he's not a girly man

He's been a par governor at best (remember that failed special election?), he's foreign-born, and the Republican base hates him. But that's all water under the bridge. The GOP needs a fresh face, and the movie star's their only hope. Look for Arnie to run for President in 2012.

Arnold, I've got a better idea: Flip. Become a Dem, we could use a man like you. After a short stint as a CA Representative, you could run for Prez in 2016 and *not* have to take on an incumbent Barack Hussein Obama.

Oh, and lose the ring.

Um, how can he run? No foreign-borns allowed, and a Democratic Congress has nothing to gain from changing that law.

The law is discriminatory to begin with, which makes it an easy target. True, the Dems have nothing to gain by changing it, but they also have little to lose. If the GOP and Arnie wants it, I don't think it will stand in their way.

The "law" that you speak of is part of the text of the Constitution. Therefore, you need a constitutional amendment to get rid of it. That is long, drawn-out, and difficult process. I think that the chance of any such amendment passing is slim to none.

@Dave L,

What are you, a lawyer? Seriously though, I believe Sen. Orrin Hatch is already pushing exactly that amendment... don't know if it died in Congress or what, but that should help Arnie if he wants to run.

Basically, I think if Arnie just goes for it and runs in the primaries, and wins, then Congress will have no choice but to amend the Constitution (or else try to disqualify him on a technicality, which would be quite unpopular). That's what I think Arnie should do.

(and hopefully that will be the last time I link to the GUOA!)
