“Ahhnold” is back, and he wants to be president of the United States.
Arnold Schwarzenegger first uttered the iconic catchphrase, “I’ll be back,” in the 1984 sci-fi thriller, “The Terminator,” and life appears to be imitating art for the former California governor, who is now openly talking about running for president.
Apparently, after President Bill Clinton and his dipped cigars, “Ahhnold” feels the American public will surely accept an affair with the maid.
But political success is far from guaranteed, considering Schwarzenegger left office in 2011 with a record high state deficit and a near-record low approval rating as governor, according to NPR. His approval rating was at 23 percent when he stepped down.
While Schwarzenegger is not likely to be appearing at a tea party anytime soon, he didn’t call them “girly-men” when he complained last year that “the extreme right wing of the party is targeting anyone who doesn’t meet its strict criteria.”
And before birthers have a meltdown, Schwarzenegger understands that he’s not eligible to be president as an immigrant born in Austria. The actor has been lobbying for support to change the law to allow him to run for president in 2016, according to the New York Post.
Of course, the real reason the “Governator” is making noise is that he has a new movie out with Sylvester Stallone, “Escape Plan.”
