Gov. Schwarzenegger: Michael Jackson "great entertainer" despite...

Following is a statement issued minutes ago by the office of California Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger regarding the death of pop star Michael Jackson:

“Today, the world has lost one of the most influential and iconic figures in the music industry. From his performances with the Jackson 5, to the premiere of the ‘moonwalk’ and ‘Thriller,’ Michael was a pop phenomenon who never stopped pushing the envelope of creativity.

"Though there were serious questions about his personal life, Michael was undoubtedly a great entertainer and his popularity spanned generations and the globe. Maria and I join all Californians in expressing our shock and sadness over his death and our hearts go out the Jackson family, Michael’s children and to his fans worldwide.”

".WE ARE THE WORLD" WE'LL NEVER FORGET...

May Micheal soul rest in perfect perfect peace.may his family be blessed.

Michael and Arnold are my two biggest heroes so to hear that from Arnie is so great. I love you Michael, heaven has just gained their brightest angel.

Just wish you all would have given him his flowers while he was alive instead of trying to leech off him and running the man out of the country with your control of the lwa and media. Sad world we live in, when the ADL can determine where you live.
