You learn some interesting things from talk radio

February 23, 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

Either on The Radio Factor or Limbaugh’s show, I heard this quote from Ah-Nold:

MR. RUSSERT: But if someone’s been a citizen for 20 years, they should have the right to run for president, don’t you think?

GOV. SCHWARZENEGGER: Oh, absolutely. I think that, you know, times have changed. I think this is now a much more global economy. I think that there’s so many people here in this country that are now from overseas, that are immigrants, that are doing such a terrific job with the work, bringing businesses here and all this, that there’s no reason why not. I mean, the key thing is it’s just that you understand the political system, how it works. And, you know, maybe people can be great contributors. I mean, look at the kind of contribution that people like Henry Kissinger has made; Madeleine Albright. I mean, there’s many, many, many people here that have worked within the government and have done an extraordinary job and not have been born in America.

Henry Kissinger?

Of course, the host of the show (damned if I can remember which show), took issue with the example of Madeleine Albright.

But Henry Kissinger?

    Why of all people would we want a degenerate muscle head running our country? If we are going to let foreign born citizens run the country, lets at least support the best and brightest. If we really need the German/Austrian accent (Ahnold certainly isn’t famous for his great acting) let’s dig Einstein’s brain out of fermeldhyde before we let the governator take over.

    Ah, you are not old enough to remember … In the 70s, which was when Kissinger became very famous, he was so highly regarded for his part in ending the Vietnam conflict, that yes, many people thought he would make an excellent president – if it were possible to elect a non-native born American.
