Schwarzenegger video of the week

This week, what a difference one year makes! The video depicts the governor speaking at the August 2006 state Republican convention in Los Angeles, while his re-election campaign was in full-swing and the GOP saw him as a hero…

(Hat tip to New West Notes blogger Bill Bradley for the video.)

“Yay, charter schools! Boo, driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants! Boo, taxes! Yay, Republican red meat!”

Now, click here to listen to the speech the governor gave this past Friday night at the 2007 state Republican convention in Indian Wells.

“Hey, GOP, get your act together! Be more like me so you can win an election once in a while!”
