A man of his word. Not governor Schwarzenegger. "I will not endorse anybody" Sac Bee

The following story appeared in the Sac Bee on January 20th. While I have not selected my choice for president and therefore do not have an Agenda regarding this post, I am disgusted with the head of my party in this state. He has proven not to be a man of his word. After announcing his pending endorsement of Senator McCain tonight can we trust him with anything he says?

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Saturday he will not endorse a candidate in the state’s upcoming Feb. 5 presidential primary, dashing hopes of GOP contenders who could have used the celebrity governor’s help in the wide-open race.

After hinting for much of the past week he would not endorse in the race, the Republican governor confirmed his decision while standing next to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who laughed when a reporter suggested the governor was holding out to see if Bloomberg would pursue an independent run.

Schwarzenegger appeared with Bloomberg and Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, at a Los Angeles freeway interchange to demand more federal attention to public works projects.

“I respect all of the candidates in the Republican lineup, and of course I have my preferences,” Schwarzenegger said. “I don’t get involved in that. I said I will not endorse anybody. I think it doesn’t help me any, it doesn’t help the state of California any, to go and endorse anybody.”
