Arnold -- Being The Governator Cost Me $200 Million

1/16/2011 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger's time as the governor of California didn't just leave the state in financial turmoil -- it cost Arnie a huge chunk of change too!

The Austrian Formerly Known as Governator told a newspaper in his homeland that his stint in Sacramento cost him nearly $200 million as a result of lost revenue from movies and endorsements.

Arnold went on to say that it was all worth it in the end ... not sure Californians would agree.

Not making money is not the same as losing it. If it were, being non-famous and not coming up with some product and convincing the masses that they really need it has cost me BILLIONS!

POOR Arnie what did our state loose? I would give him two ml. to get back 6 years of his corrupt douchebag mentality. He sold out Cal. at every turn Workers Comp. for every person working in Ca.
Insurance, lobbists, ect. DON'I COME BACK!!!

Likewise, . . . the State of California lost billions while he was Governor. Heck, . . . write Arnold an "I-Owe-U" for his trouble, as it was good enough for everyone else, right?!?!?!?

Hey, least Arnie opted NOT to take a paycheck for being governor. Now that we have a new gov, we're now paying another person's salary with our tax dollars. And oh yeah, 5-year tax increase, anyone?

The steroids use from many decades ago must have distorted his thought process for the rest of his life. Arnold must really think he did Californians a favor by being the Governor. Actually, what he did was made hundreds of thousands regret their decision to vote him in to office. His so called bravado talk made many think he was going to be tough on running the state. Sure did run it into the ground, much more than Gray Davis would have done. And his recent reduction of sentencing foe that Nunez punk was deplorable, and his after the fact apology was pathetic.

In an unrelated note. Sacramento is a ces pool of filth. Pan handlers. Ghetto hood rats everywhere. It smells bad looks bad. It's awful there. Elk Grove also. Folsom is nice.

This is why Sarah Palin won't be running for president in 2012. There's money to be made and she can say whatever she wants on Fox News without being held accountable. If she were POTUS she'd lose her profit window and actually be less influential.

Instead of being gov, Arnold should have given the 200 mil to the state of california and just called it a day.
