    He should have waited until after the debate. McCain was a jerk.

    John in CA, as an Indian American (not the woo woo woo one, but thank you for calling tech support my name is Mike (actual name Raj) one) I am trying to figure out which laws are different in India for Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus? There are different set of RULES for the different faiths, so that all can pactice their faith and beliefs as freely as possiably. You can also argue that there are biases against certain faiths, in the goverment level, but mostly in the common person level. No goverment LAW though, there were some before that were made during the time when Pakistan and India divided leading to tensions and killing of millions of Muslims. Those laws of course were made out of anger and malice. All three faiths all contribute to the goverment equally based on population of each, I think they even have a Christian in parliment now.

    I agree. Schwazenegger should have waited until after the debate and instead endorsed Gov. Mike Huckabee. Forget about the Chuck incident.

    I wish he would change his mind to endorse McCain.
    McCain is one sided, old timer politician (be the same White House Politics) and surely doesn't speak for all Americans and for working well with other elected people. We need to bring in a new face who will be inspiring;who has and will work with his people for representing Americans without the dependancy on a political life-long career paycheck.

  8. Attacks by the Establishment on Ron Paul Continue

    Arnold is good press material but he does not know anything about our Constitution!

    Another Politician like McCain that says he won't endorse someone before February 5th.

    I am sick of Washington politicians like McCain. He's been 20 years in the Senate working on security and what has he accomplished? NOTHING! We need a smarter man in the White House.

    Rally to Romney, the Ronald Reagan of our time.

    Its one of Arnold’s good neighbor policies to endorse a fellow liberal Republican who also believes in cashing-in there green-gold credits.

  12. Shame on CNN

    Wow! An endorsement from a guy who can't speak proper english.

    McCain is the only one of the Republicans that actively talks about the environment, something the governator cares about. This is no surprise that he is endorsing McCain.

    It's no surprise that Arnold endorsed McCain, they are both closet liberals that share the same pillow.

    Romney won the debate by effectively defended himself against unwarrented attacks. It's obvious Huckabee is aligning himself with McCain for the VP position and Guiliani for a cabinet post.

    Romney is the only candidate (Rep or Dem) that doesn't have old Washington croonies/celebrity elite endorsements, that's a virtue. He stands out as the true Washington outsider .

  15. Undecided in Texas

    In regards to the "Republican Debate" last night, I am deeply disappointed that out of the 4 Republicans that participated, apparently only 2 of them are truly worthy of any real "air time". I am still undecided, but after last night, am taking a little harder look at the two "other" candidates. I am sick and tired of the media deciding for US. Believe it or not, folks out here in the real world can still think for ourselves, and we think this bias stinks!
