    Gott im Himmel, wir haben sehr gern unser Stadthalter! Als er jung war, wurde er der schoenste Muskelmann der Welt, denn wurde ein beruhmte Schauspielder, und hat er Regierungkraft gestudiert, und nun ist er ein grosser Stadhalter.

    Arnold, Arnold ueber alles,
    Uber alles in der welt!
    Wenn es stetzt zum schutz und trutz,
    Bruderlich zusammenhelt!
    Von der Klamath bis an Calexico,
    Von des Ozeans bis an Nevada,
    Arnold, Arnold ueber alles.
    Uber alles in der welt!

    (With apologies for my fractured German! Nimmer hat ich Deutsch im schule gestudiert.)

    Translation from a non native Englisch speaker but native German.

    Oh my god, we love our governor. When he was young, he became the most handsome muscle-man in the world and a famous actor. He studied politics and learnded about the power of his clan(Kennedy). He is a great governor.

    Arnold, Arnold forever,
    over everybody in the world
    When it stands brotherly in protection and shelter
    From Klamath to Calexio
    From the ocean to Nevada
    Arnold, Arnold...

    I didnt study German since school.

    Interessanter Beitrag. Aber Arnold gehört schon noch uns - den Österreichern.

    Auch wenn die Kaiserhymne bis 1918 unsere offizielle Hymne war, singen wir seit 1946

    Land der Berge, Land am Strome,
    Land der Äcker, Land der Dome.
    Land der Hämmer, zukunftsreich.
    Heimat bist du großer Söhne,
    Volk begnadet für das Schöne,
    Vielgerühmtes Österreich,
    Vielgerühmtes Österreich.

    Ihr German ist nicht so fractured, aber beim Geschichtsstudium happert es noch ein wenig.


    Interesting article - But Arnold belongs to us - the Austrians

    Though the emperor's anthem(Haydn) was the official national anthem until 1918, since 1946 we sing:

    Country full of mountains, Country along the river(Danube)
    Country of fields(acres), Country of cathedrals
    Country of sledges for a promising future
    Nation exceptionally gifted with beauty,
    Highly boasted Austria

    Your German is not so fractured, but your studies in history are sort of poor.

    What is absolutely great with national anthems is how objective they really are!!!
    Rule Britannia,Land of hope and glory,etc...[​IMG]
    Concerning the Hasbourg family ,i do admit a certain lack of knowledge even if Metternich the Great Chancellor whoo carved post Napoleon Europe and Franz-Ferdinand are in my mind for obvious reasons....
    Are you really proud of Arnold or is it a joke?
    If i were Austrian ,some greats musicians such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and others will spring to my mind more than a steroid-fed third rate actor...
    There is a tradition in California with bad actors becoming politicians but Arnold has done it without McCarthysm....

    The real English national anthem is Jerusalem, in the minds of many. Better the visionary Blake than that soap box stuff.

    His height seems to be controversial.

    Blair is supposed to be 6', or a tad under, which would seem to settle the Arnold controversy.

    Arnie has done very well for himself from a bodybuilder on steroids with a heavy Austrian accent to governor of California....
    He was and is a terrible actor and i do hope,for California, that he is a better politician..
    This will be a real sucess story if he wasn't a very famous actor in a state where power and image are mixed and if he didn't marry into a very rich and well connected family...
    Nowhere else in the world ,anybody would have taken him seriously but California and some lobbies did...
    Californians were also fed up with the Gray period...

    Oh come on, Arnold isn't that bad of an actor. I consider him superior to other muscle men on screen of his times (Stallone, Segal...). The Terminator 1&2 remain 2 of my favorite action flicks of all time. [​IMG]

    He is a terrible actor ...
    Even my wife who does like Vin Diesel find him shockingly bad.....
    I do find him as grotesque as Jean-Claude Vandamme ,the muscle from Brussels...
    His only good role was in terminator playing a near mute killer android!!!!!!
    In five minutes ,you're going to compare it to Newman,Brando,Pacino ,De Niro or Spacey!!!!!
    Compared to him ,Ronald reagan and his B/D/E/Z movies was a method actor....

    Arnold was an awesome actor, in the sense that he's not supposed to anothy hopkins. The roles he chose where perfect for him and in that sense an awesome actor. [​IMG]

    The primary job of an actor isn't to win an Oscar but to entertain an audience. By that measure, Arnold was a great actor.

    Btw, I sincerely doubt that an unknown teenager who came to America not knowing a single soul and developed into the biggest Hollywood actor of his time and the Governor of the most important American state can be called "dumb." Looks (and accents) are deceiving.
