Shwarzenegger pisses off gay people

By saying that he will veto the Bill passed by the assembley that recognizes Gay mariage. His reasoning: It's against the people's will. Schwarzenegger said the legislation, approved Tuesday by lawmakers, would conflict with the intent of voters when they approved an initiative five years ago. Proposition 22 was placed on the ballot to prevent California from recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states or countries. "We cannot have a system where the people vote and the Legislature derails that vote," the governor's press secretary, Margita Thompson, said in a statement. "Out of respect for the will of the people, the governor will veto (the bill)." Schwarzenegger just lost the San Fransisco vote in the next elections!

Way to go, Arnie! Now, if you could just find a way to make good on your promise to the residents of La Conchita, you'd get an A+!

Hmmm....the majority vote in S.F. and the bare majority of the legislature that passed this bill or the vast majority of the state that supported the previous innitiative and 80% of his party.

Must have been a tough choice.

Why any legislative body would defy the will of the people in the first place boggles my mind. Hopefully the good people of CA will remember this when it is time to elect new represenatives. Schwarzenegger is following the will of the people and not bowing to special interest.
