The Man Who Will Be King: Schwarzenegger praises Minutemen, Criticizes Jorge Bush's Weak Immigration Policy 09 May 2005
Why did Schwarzenegger become the governor of California? Because he listens to his audience; he likes his audience. This is what made him a popular actor, and it is the same thing that has made him a popular politician. As long as he can figure our what most of his audience wants, and gives it to them, he will continue to be a popular politician.
In this case, unlike Jorge Bush, Arnold Schwarzenegger has noticed that we, the People, do not appreciate the hordes of illegal immigrants flooding across our borders. He has also noticed that this is a huge hot-button issue for Conservative voters (the largest segment of the Republican base). He has noticed that the natives are restless, and he is positioning himself to take advantage of that. Does he really believe in the cause of the Minutemen? Or is he doing it for the political capital? I actually think we're seeing the real Arnold Schwarzenegger, here. His entire life has been about working hard so he can succeed on his own merit. The Minutemen are a group of citizens who are fed up with government inaction and are therefore picking up the slack themselves. This follows Schwarzenegger's life philosophy, which can be summed up as "if you want something done, figure out how to get it done, and then do it."
Also, there's just the little fact that Schwarzenegger had the decency to learn English when he came to live here. Most illegals don't. Which wouldn't bother me that much, except our government requires us to accommodate them in their own language. He's probably just as offended by the whole situation as we are, since he came here because he wanted to be an American.
