Schwarzenegger Calls Washington Politicians "Wimps" for Not Standing Up to Oil Companies

by Ben Jervey

October 29, 2010
We need to go to Washington and say, "Look what happened. You, because oil companies have spent money against you, they have threatened you, you backed off the energy policy and the environmental policy in Washington."
What wimps. No guts. I mean, here, you idolize and always celebrate the great warriors. Our soldiers, our men and women who go to Iraq and Afghanistan, and they’re risking their lives to defend this country and you’re not even willing to stand up against the oil companies. I said, that’s disgusting. You promised the people you’d represent them. You didn’t promise the people you’d represent the oil companies and the special interests.

Talk about a "climate hawk."
