While doing an interview for CNN, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was asked what grade he would give Obama. Schwarzenegger said this:
“When it comes to effort, [Obama] should get a straight A,” Schwarzenegger told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King in an interview that aired Sunday on State of the Union.
“He’s out there with tremendous energy and he’s selling his ideas. And he has great enthusiasm there. He’s a great speaker, a great communicator.”
The one-time Hollywood action star also had some advice for Obama as the president tries to push his agenda through Capitol Hill’s partisanship.
“He has to hang in there,” Schwarzenegger told King, “be tough, just continue on, never give up, eventually he’s going to get all those things done.”
Pushing forward with bad ideas is probably why California is in the hole, so it should come as no surprise that Arnold admires the same obtuseness in Obama.
