Me too, but we don't have the Austrian accent or film resume.

Maybe we could get together with Arnie and form a triumvirate?

First, you need to get juiced.

or go to GNC and buy those huge bottles of "vitamin supplements".

Nah, no juice necessary.  We'll just call everyone economic girlie-men, and the rest will follow!!!

Pardon me, but...

You are mistaken.  Not to say that there was such a debate--- but to say that Arnold never said that.
He said as he watched the Nixon-Humphrey race [unfold] on TV, he yada yada yada... It's all good if you want to hate Arnie; I don't care to make the effort to discuss his politics or anything else, but please at least be accurate if you're going to bash.

Transcript of his speech at RNC:


hey zap, the best part of that f-ing speech was when he said he watched the nixon-humphrey debate on tv

Quote
Everything about America seemed so big to me, so open, so possible.

I finally arrived here in 1968. What a special day it was. I remember I arrived here with empty pockets but full of dreams, full of determination, full of desire.

The presidential campaign was in full swing. I remember watching the Nixon-Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend of mine who spoke German and English translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism, which I had just left.

But then I heard Nixon speak. Then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting the government off your back, lowering the taxes and strengthening the military.

Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air.

I said to my friend, I said, "What party is he?"

My friend said, "He's a Republican."

I said, "Then I am a Republican."

Hmmm... that's kind of funny.  I love fact-distortion.

Whatever your taking, up the dosage.


fuckheads read the article i linked to!

http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO409A.html


Quote
And since then, he has used these same catch sentences on Humphrey versus Nixon on numerous occasions, in press interviews as well as at political venues (including the 2000 Republican Convention and his 2003 campaign for the Governorship of California):

"For substance, try a dubious note with which Schwarzenegger brightened an address to his party's recent L.A. convention. The story goes over so well, he's taken to repeating it. He says his decision to become a Republican was prompted soon after he'd arrived from Austria in 1968, and watched a presidential debate between Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey. A friend translated their words for him. Says Arnold:

"I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism, which I had just left, and Nixon talking about free enterprise, getting the government off our backs, and lower taxes. ..." (The San Diego Union-Tribune, September 24, 2003)

so the san diego union-tribune reports and quotes him saying it was a debate

i hope you ignoranuses read this again

damn, man, RTFA

Sketchy-

The first link you gave was to CNN's AllPolitics, which gives the transcript.  THAT transcript says 'race' and 'campaign,' not 'debate.'  Whoever wrote the article for that second  link is basically just making a listening error.  The transcript of the speech is what I am going by, not a reporter's account of the speech (or subsequent retellings of the speech).

And watch that medication; I don't particularly enjoy the word 'fuckhead.'

Yeah, that's so 1986 James Hetfield to call people fuckheads.  Rock on!!!!

On the other hand, I didn't read any of the articles but I recall having read the transcripts awhile back.  I can't remember the specifics and it's not worth my time to get into he said/she said.  But if Savannah says the actual transcipt didn't ever mention a debate, you know, I'll take her word for it.
