    Default Schwarzenegger Sends Hidden 'F--- You' to Critic

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009...en-f-k-critic/

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger typically attaches a message to bills he signs or vetoes telling lawmakers why he took the action.

    A Democratic assemblyman who heckled the governor during a recent event in San Francisco actually received two messages: the veto letter itself and a not-so-subtle rebuke creatively hidden within it.

    Like a find-the-word puzzle, the second message was visible by stringing together the first letter of each line down the left-hand margin. It consisted of a common four-letter vulgarity followed by the letters "y-o-u."

    Click to see the letter (via San Francisco Chronicle)

    "My goodness. What a coincidence," said Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear. "I suppose when you do so many vetoes, something like this is bound to happen."

    Schwarzenegger's veto messages are sent to the lawmakers who authored the bills, and posted on the governor's Web site. McLear noted that the left-hand margin of past veto messages has spelled out words such as "poet" and "soap."

    The target was San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who had sponsored AB1176. The bill, which passed unanimously in the Assembly and Senate, would have granted the Port of San Francisco expanded financing power to redevelop a former shipyard into a new neighborhood known as Pier 70.

    "Kudos to the governor for his creative use of coincidence," said Ammiano's spokesman, Quintin Mecke. "You certainly have to have a sense of humor in politics. Unfortunately, this humor came at the cost of the Port of San Francisco."

    Whether coincidence or smackdown, the phrase contained in Schwarzenegger's Oct. 12 veto message could be seen as retaliation for Ammiano's behavior during a local Democratic Party fundraiser earlier this month in San Francisco.

    Schwarzenegger, a Republican, had been invited to the event by former San Francisco mayor and Assembly speaker Willie Brown, a Democrat.

    His appearance at the Fairmont Hotel caught many of the attendees by surprise and came after a summer of contentious budget negotiations that forced lawmakers to cut billions of dollars from core state services, including education and health care programs.

    On a video clip of the governor's appearance, Ammiano can be heard shouting "you lie" and other derogatory phrases as other attendees booed and heckled Schwarzenegger's brief speech.

    After the governor left, Ammiano took the stage and gave a rambling diatribe in which he criticized Schwarzenegger for a wide variety of perceived offenses. In part, the freshman lawmaker was upset that Schwarzenegger had vetoed bills in 2005 and 2007 that would have legalized gay marriage.

    The governor has said the issue should be decided by voters or the state Supreme Court. Schwarzenegger also opposed Proposition 8, the initiative voters passed in November to ban same-sex marriage.

    Of the eight Ammiano bills sent to the governor's desk this year, Schwarzenegger vetoed six -- five of them after the Oct. 7 heckling incident.

    Mecke, Ammiano's spokesman, said the lawmaker wants to move on.

    "We will call it even and start with a clean slate with the governor from here on out," he said.

    nice!

    The big question is did Arnie come up with that all by himself? If so, kudos to you, big guy!

    What a great way to get the message out.
    I have often wondered if that had been done before.
    Nowadays, with computers instead of typewriters, it's easy to do.
    Gradually, we should see this sort of thing more often.
    Each communication should be scanned for a hidden meaning,
    regardless of what it says on the surface.

    Right now, it occurs to me that, perhaps, it could happen subliminally.
    Underneath the message you mean to say, you could be
    letting out your true feelings that you intend to keep secret.
    Everyone should pay closer attention to the difference between what they
    say, and what they truly mean.

    California is in a sorry state, though.
    I think we need more than Arnold's newly found writing skills to get out of the mess we're in.
    Arnie's legacy here is pretty thin when it comes to the economy. Basically same as all his predecessors - except with more glamour and hollywood. All his talk of reform and cleaning up the house fell flat. It was just talk.

    Bullwinkle has made an intersting point.
    It certainly bares consideration.
    To often, people only see what they want to see
    Everyone has differing views.

    Most will search hard for the true meaning
    Even if it gives them a hickey
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    I really think that this is the shot in the arm needed in
    modern politics. No more fuckin' around!

    The beginnings of Arnie's term were less than stellar.
    Yet despite the shortcomings of his administration his
    popularity and candor simply have to be admired. No,
    I don't think he'll be serving another term as our Governor.
    Nothing really hides the fact that here have been too many
    giant fuck-ups.

    Needless to say that he was brought in to clear up the
    asinine actions of previous gov, Gray Davis - but many recent errors
    kill any chance of returning at this point.
    Even his wife Maria Shriver is under super-scrutiny for her
    driving-and-texting debacle.

    That is hilarious. The question is,
    how does Arnie compare to Cheney, who was hated by
    everyone for, among other things, using that phrase.

    Funny stuff. Arnie is his
    own man, and that is refreshing.
    Obviously that is a rare trait among politicians
    these days.

    Reagan was that way, too.
    Ulysses Grant, J.R. Ewing,
    Lyle Waggoner, those were MEN.
    Edward R. Murrow, I could go on, but I will
    stop now. G. Gordon Liddy, too.

    Actually it doesnt require smarts so much as is does patience.
    Really you gotta have a few extra minutes to spare which,
    mind you, kinda means.....not much of a life.
    But in all seriousness, the key when it really comes down to
    it is creativity.
