Schwarzenegger Talks Again Of California Budget Fix

Posted: Updated:
BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger launched his campaign for governor in 2003 on Jay Leno's stage. He visited "The Tonight Show" host again yesterday, but it sometimes sounded like a rerun.

After nearly six years in office, Schwarzenegger is still promising to repair California's ailing finances.

The Republican governor said he had "absolute confidence" that Democrats and Republicans will get together in the next few weeks and "fix the problems."

Schwarzenegger placed part of the blame for the state's financial woes on a shrinking global economy - and himself. Last week voters rejected a slate of ballot proposals Schwarzenegger endorsed as the solution to the budget mess.

He said, "I think the people are just upset at Sacramento. They feel like the politicians should take care of this."
