I’ve always loved Arnie. Just check out who my favourite action film stars are to find out more. He’s also made the foray into politics fairly successfully. I don’t know why he even wants the job, but if you check out a few of his movies, you quickly see that he’s the man for the job:
Reason #10: Foreign Policy
He’s got a slam bang foreign policy. He wouldn’t negotiate with terrorists (remember Collateral Damage?). He’s proven himself in Eastern Europe, the mideast and Central/South America. He gets the job done. He doesn’t complain about Weapons of Mass Destruction, he is one. And even if the terrorists were hiding them, he’d find them, alter them and use them to settle a personal vendetta – True Lies anyone?
Reason #9: We know Where he stands on Stem Cell Research
The often-overlooked movie The Sixth Day tells us what the friendly giant really thinks of cloning – it’s bad. He himself was cloned, and realizes it’s not a good idea. Petrie dishes would probably even be banned under his administration. Arnie experimented with male pregnancy and was the valuable result of a botched in-vitro fertilization technique. Obama can’t even answer questions on the subject without claiming they’re ‘above my pay grade’. Puh-lease.
Reason #8: Strong Penal Reform
If you’ve seen the movie The Running Man you know that he would be tough, but fair on crime. And like his character in this movie he realizes that sometimes people can be incorrectly convicted without all of the proper information. The death penalty may be put on hold. (He certainly wouldn’t make a game show out of capital punishment anyway)
Reason #7: Scientific Discovery with Caution
The guy’s been in enough sci-fi flicks to know that science is cool, but using it without limits, ethics or restraints is irresponsible, irrational, ridiculous. (6th Day, Total Recall) He wouldn’t be opposed to exploring space, but he’d do it with caution.
Reason #6: AI Not a problem
Very similar to reason #7, however this deals specifically with robotics. The Matrix reminds us that we have to be careful with machines. Arnold already knows this. In fact after working for both sides (man and ‘bots) he knows exactly how to handle the problem. He’s also successfully avoided nuclear armageddon. Can Obama say that? Robots need to remain our friends.
Reason #5: Bringing Both Sides Together
We all know Obama’s promising to unite both sides, to bring them together for discussion – Hard to believe. Arnold is a Republican, and he married a Kennedy. Now that’s impressive.
Reason #4: Alien Invasion
How many Predators has Obama killed? I’ll tell you – none. In fact I think the hunter in Predator 2 had one of Obama’s skulls on display in his ship, and even the feeble Danny Glover could take that one out. Arnold did it in the jungle with a homemade bow and arrow and some mud. Give the guy the job already.
Reason #3: Values Education
He spent some time in the most difficult classroom on earth – kindergarten. He knows what it takes for students to achieve, and he values learning. Obama hasn’t even appeared in a classroom in a movie.
Reason #2: No Secret Service
Have you seen Eraser? He fights crocodiles, dodges things travelling the speed of light, and does it all to protect someone in the witness protection program. He wouldn’t even need Secret Service Agents. He could do it himself. Think of the money the country would save!!
Reason#1: Foreigners are OK
Obama had some controversy surrounding his place of birth. Arnie’s pal Sylverster Stallone already pointed towards this tongue-in cheek about this in his awesome movie Demolition Man. He and Sandra Bullock drive by the Schwarzenegger Presidential Library, and Bullock explains that he’s the first foreigner allowed to take office. OK by me.
