Now he's back to being like conservative hero Reagan, for those playing at home.
Yes, Reagan, the Governor who basically created homelessness, instituted tuition at California's Universities and presided over the biggest deficits this country had ever seen (well, until George W. Bush). For those who need a reminder of just who Reagan was (yeah, you're not going to figure it out from this LA Times fluff piece on Schwarzenegger at the library), I found this 1975 interview with Gov. Reagan from Reason Magazine, the propaganda of the conservative/libertarian Reason Foundation.
The similarities are actually quite striking between Reagan and Schwarzenegger, especially when it comes to their ideas around choking government to further hurt the poor and disadvantaged. But that's not what Schwarzenegger was bragging about over at the Simi Valley library. Lucky for him, the non-critically-thinking mainstream media didn't mind just lapping up his photo-op.
