Arnold Schwarzenegger announced at the end of a forum that he intends to be in office for 7 years. Polls show his approval rating at a low 36%. Of course Californians are an impatient lot that expect everything to be fixed within 6 months even though they keep passing initiatives that include spending that the Governor cannot override or cut back on to reduce the states spending.
New York Times (that bashes the hell out of him throughout the article)
"Of course, I'm going to finish the job," he said. "I'm a follow-through guy."
"I'm not in there for three years," Mr. Schwarzenegger added. "I'm in there for seven years. Yes, I will run again." The crowd inside the auditorium applauded, as protesters outside chanted, "Hey hey, ho ho, Schwarzenegger's got to go."
Mr. Schwarzenegger, a Republican, took office two years ago, after winning a tumultuous recall election that ousted Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat. The vote takes place a year from November, and Mr. Schwarzenegger is eligible to run for a full four-year term.
I like how they keep calling him Mr. Schwarzenegger, instead of Governor Schwarzenegger. They pay him absolutely no respect at all as an elected official.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. The New York Times uses Mr./Ms./Mrs. titles on second reference for all adults, from the average Joe on the street to the president. Check your facts before you start slamming someone with whom you disagree.

The New York Times is known for its liberal bias. And they referred to Mr. Davis as Governor, so his point still stands strong. Wow, 4 years later. I guess I'm a little late...
