At least as early as 2004 Schwarzenegger called California Democrats “girlie men” and noted that in the next election the GOP would “terminate” them.
In a new interview with Men’s Health magazine, Schwarzenegger is abjectly apologetic over his “girlie men” taunt.
I called them girlie men because they weren’t willing to take risks,” the actor told the magazine.
“Politicians, in general, want to do little things, so there’s no risk involved.”
“If you have a little sense of history, you know that the best things are accomplished when both parties work together and start compromising like Ronald Reagan did with Tip O’Neill,” Schwarzenegger told the magazine.
