Columbus (Ohio), Nov 1 : California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger poked fun at Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's slight frame while praising John McCain at a campaign stop here.
Schwarzenegger had the crowd in the palm of his hand Friday at a John McCain rally with a speech that mixed a healthy helping of jokes with praise for the Republican presidential candidate.
The "Governator," a former bodybuilder said: "He needs to do something about those skinny legs, make him do some squats and some bicep curls to build up those scrawny little arms. If only we could do something about putting some meat on his ideas," adding that McCain was "built like a rock."
Schwarzenegger, known for dipping into his Hollywood past to fill his speeches with movie catchphrases, said voters "don't have to wonder, is (McCain) ready to be president?"
"John McCain served longer in a POW camp than his opponent has in the United States Senate. Ladies and gentlemen, I only play an action hero in my movies, but John McCain is a real action hero," he said.
McCain has been hitting Ohio hard this week in an effort to trim Obama's lead in this key battleground state before Tuesday's election.
The Republican's campaign has scheduled more stops in the Buckeye state for Saturday, and it has put an emphasis on Pennsylvania as well, FOX News reported.
"Our position in these states is strong and undecided voters continue to have a very favorable impression of our candidate," campaign manager Rich Davis said on Friday.
