True Liar: Gov. Schwarzenegger brings deceit to real life

"All [California lawmakers] know how to do is spend, spend, spend . . . Then they realize they are spending too much and so they tax, tax, tax. I will not raise your taxes. I will not cut education."

--Arnold Schwarzenegger in October 2003, while campaigning to unseat then-Gov. Gray Davis in a recall election because Davis wanted to raise taxes to end an $8 billion budget crisis. Fast forward to today and Gov. Schwarzenegger, the liar, has proposed raising taxes by a whopping $14.3 billion and cutting education to deal with a $41.6 billion budget gap created on his watch.
