SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to put his star power to work for President Barack Obama on the environment when his own term ends next year, the former movie actor said on Thursday.
Republican Schwarzenegger is arguably the biggest environmentalist in his party and razzed Washington, which is struggling to pass climate change legislation and prepare for international talks, for wrangling with other countries over global warming goals rather than setting an example.
"Did we say China, you go first with human rights, and we will follow you? No. We led," he said in an address at the Commonwealth Club lauding his state's climate change plan, which is the most aggressive in the nation.
Term limits will force Schwarzenegger out of office in late 2010, and his main accomplishment may be his environmental record -- sweeping efforts to change the state's system of government and to permanently balance the budget have largely failed.
Asked if he would be willing to serve in the Obama administration, be a global 'green' ambassador, or even star in a TV series as governor of California after he steps down, Schwarzenegger said, "Yes to all those things."

Arnie is moving from RINO straight to Rat...
turn the water on
Arnie is apparently dumb.
Ahhnold is crazy
Large parts of the country are being Detroit’d. Soon there won’t be anyplace to run to.
What a fool.
The Worminator turns...
What the hell happened to him. When did the Terminator and the Kindergarten cop, Douglas Quaid, and Mr. Freeze become such a pantywaste and how? I’m pretty sure 1980s Arnold would be beating the crap out of this new one if he was still around.
Green is the new Red.

Meanwhile, the rest of us will fire up the barbecues, those eeeeevil internal-combustion-engines, air-conditioners, and big-screen TVs. We don't want to be miserable, living in dark grass huts in the way that you & the EnviroWhacko-Americans envision it.
And now a green girly-man as well.
Arnie IS dumb. He proved it when he signed California Assembly Bill 32, the “Destroy the California Economy Bill.” The state is getting ready to introduce the first tax to solve global warming and it will only cost each family $1.50 per month. But that fee won’t solve anything — it’s going entirely for creating “baseline” data on how much CO2 the state emits and to hire an army of state workers to do the measuring and analysis. When they are done, that’s when the real job destruction will begin.
"The 6th Day" was based on a true story. Real-Arnold was cloned. Real-Arnold is frozen in a suspension chamber somewhere underground. Clone-Arnold, a eunuch, had genetic strings imported from Al Gore.
He’s been hanging out with the Kennedy’s for too long. Actually, the fact that he married into the family made him suspect.
I left in 06 after 30 years. I couldn’t bear to watch the most beautiful state in America go down the tubes.
Hey, Californians, how ya' doin', drivin' down those hydrogen highways? Thirsty? Get outta the way while he completes the wrecking of your economy. Above all, he will not produce your oil because if he did so you could bring your ecomomy back. But, hey what's an economy copared to the worship of the anointed?
