I guess if he had been a Democrat he would have been openly gay.

Take NOTE: DRUDGE REPORT fails to cover Arnold. Now, that's just UNbalanced aggregating.
BOO to Drudge!
The only thing UNbalanced here is you; Drudge Report was the first place I saw the initial story.

So, your body is full of steroids also - like your "inspiration"?
Yes I admit i took steroids and yes i was inspired. I also enjoyed many escapades with females during that time.Females love bulky cut up bodies and also made many men jealous. I't was between the ages of 19 - 27... I got married and slowed down to keeping myself trim and fit only and not concentrate on bulk and muscle gain.I enjoyed every minute of it. Most men can only dream of what i got upto. I can understand how arnie would feel..He is a superstar!

Does the Supreme Court know this? Have you informed them?
I'm like so totally in awe of you and the three other birfers left in the country. Stick to your guns, don't let facts get in the way of a great fantasy.
The SCOTUS hears what is brought to it. Right now every suit that is brought against the Communist in Chief is shot down by a liberal judge.........that will end in 2012.

how would this tarnish his legacy. if anything, it will show him to be a man who man's up. rare in itself in politics. plus, he didn't have her have an abortion. again, if anything this would tend to show how much better a man he is than other politicians.
If anything, this shows Arnold to be a "typical" politician in regard to fidelity. For example, while president, Bill Clinton carried on a long term affair with an intern, Monica Lewinski. They engaged in various sexual acts in the Oval Office, which is under the roof of the White House, which was also the primary residence of Bill and Hillary Clinton at that time.
So Mr. Schwarzenegger's affair with a maid in his own residence would be roughly equivalent. Mr. Schwarzenegger's affair is problematic, because the maid had his illegitimte child, but that technical detail doesn't make the actual affair itself any more immoral, simply more titilating for the media and emotionally hurtful for his wife.
One aspect to Clinton's affair that made it more problematic, both politicaly for his character, was that he lied about it while sworn under oath in a deposition, and he was also not entirely honest about the relationship when addressing the issue in a public TV interview.

Had that been the case, he could have run for office again as a Democrat and won.

I grew up watching arnie and i will never judge him. He was an inspiration to me in my teenage years when i was bodybuilding and i loved all his movies.. his private life is of no concern to me. He has achieved more in his life than most humans could possibly imagine. Hes a legend.I hope he is well and at least he admitted to it. Good luck mate! those children he has will be well looked after in the future and beyond.I hope Maria forgives him. We only live once...... He made a terrible problem for himself and he should be forgiven....
And WHY would that be?????.....just because YOU have an idol who is DISGUSTING........that is why I should "FORGIVE" him? What about the FACT that he DECEIVED the people of California? Does that not count for something?

He has provided millions of dollars to america in movie sales alone over the years! hes created jobs for people because of it.He's provided a lot DONT YOU WORRY MATE!! Your whole family and generations before won't come close to what Arnie has given to the American society!

Stupid as people worrying about this kind or crap. Tarnish him or her. What a laugh. They are rich. Do you think they care what the sheep of this country think ? Think about how Obama has tarnished you, the people of the United States of America. They don't make enough Tarn-X to get rid if this.
