Arnold Schwarzenegger is a God-damned liar 

He lied to get elected last fall. It worked.

He cut the unpopular motor vehicle tax. Got applause.

Now he has to raise taxes. Which he swore he would not do. But he has to. It's called REALITY.

Think of all those idiots who voted for a man who said he would "terminate" those high taxes. Idiots, every single one. Lotta idiots in this world. And they get to vote. sigh

Via Kevin Drum's blog at the Washington Monthly:

WISHFUL THINKING....I forgot to blog this the other day, but here's the latest from Arnold on his pledge to never, ever raise taxes, no matter what:

"I'm going through wishful thinking that I'll never have to go there," Schwarzenegger said. "Because I just don't like it. I try to work around and find ways so we don't have to do that. So that's the stage I'm in right now. Maybe someone else will say it's denial, but I'm at that stage where I say you can't do that."

I wonder what his first clue was?

What's really weird is that, according to the LA Times, Schwarzenegger is currently spending his time on workers' comp proposals and "his attention has not turned in earnest to the 2004-05 state budget." Gee, the state has a multi-billion dollar deficit, Arnold has a huge Democratic majority to negotiate with in the legislature, and the budget is supposed to be passed 12 weeks from now, but he isn't really focused on it yet? What exactly would it take for him to get focused?

California's conservatives, by the way, attuned to reality as always, have promised him the George Bush (Sr.) treatment if he dares to raise taxes even a penny.
