Schwarzenegger Calls for Spending Cuts

Here's the money quote:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger used his second State of the State speech to call for spending cuts — not tax hikes — in order to close an $8.1 billion deficit, pleading with lawmakers to "ignore the lobbyists."

Update: I also liked this part of his speech:

If a politician tries to take credit for job growth, don't believe it. Ladies and gentlemen, I did not create this record number of jobs.

Businesses created them. Small businesses. Large businesses. Women-owned businesses. Minority-owned businesses.
