Schwarzenegger would pursue presidential post

— Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would love to run for president — if he could.

California’s actor-turned-governor was born in Austria and the U.S. Constitution prevents foreign-born citizens from holding the nation’s top job.

Jay Leno asked Schwarzenegger on “The Tonight Show” Thursday if he would make a White House run if the law was changed.

Schwarzenegger replied, “Without any doubt.”

But that’s not likely in the foreseeable future. Any amendment to the Constitution must be approved by two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate, and then be ratified by three-fourths of state legislatures.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says the governor doesn’t think that will happen.

Arnold doesn't have a certified birth certificate but the lefties could get him a certificate of live birth. That works for the Obama administration.

jeezus, give it up already. Even though you think about it a lot, and repeat it even more, doesn't mean isn't going to come true.

I've got spare grips if you'd like to get one.

Legal Supreme Court definition of Natural Born Citizen: A person having TWO PARENTS that are US Citizens.

Constitutional Requirement for President of the United States: Must be a Natural Born citizen. US Constitution, under Article II—Section I—Clause V

Obama is not legally qualified for the Office of President of the United States. He has usurped the Presidency.

...just my opinion, based on the Constitution and the Supreme Court rulings.

All the other party would have to do is show "Hercules in New York" on tv. For the next decade, nobody would be able to look at Arnie without laughing.

Did that technique get tried with Bedtime for Bonzo, Snap?

Hercules in New York is leagues worse than Bedtime for Bonzo.

Just two times as good, according to imdb. That might just mean that it's mediocre, rather than so bad that it's actually good.

Nothing was covered up. Stop spouting Radical Right conspiracy theories.

Based on your incomplete interpretation McCain wouldn't have been legal either. He was born in the Panama Canal Zone.

Once again, neither party can offer up a decent candidate, and the few who may have the intellect and ability (ex: Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich) to lead, get taken off the path by their own personal demons, and, in my opinion, are a waste of talent.

Look at the sad cast of idiots from both parties who ran for president during the last elections. Two of the worst, McCain and Obama, were picked to represent their respective political parties. Sad.

IF Arnold were able to run for President, he would be as electable as I would. Not a chance...

Who does Arnold think he is? He's married to a Kennedy but has no chance of ever being president. Look how well he's doing with California. Just think of the harm he would do to the country. The terminator is over and out for good.
