McCain and the Green gods

McCain and the Green Gods

John McCain’s nose is growing decidedly greener these days as exhibited in his recent trip to Oregon. Not only did he participate in a passionate drive-by tree hugging, he promised to deal away more US sovereignty and freedom.

McCain pledged as President to play a lead role in negotiations for an agreement to cut emissions to a level the US refused to ratify as called for by the Kyoto Protocol.

“I will not accept the same dead-end of failed diplomacy that claimed Kyoto,” said McCain. “The United States will lead and will lead with a different approach — an approach that speaks to the interests and obligations of every nation.”

As you may recall, one of the main reasons for the Kyoto failure is that the mandates did not apply binding greenhouse gas targets on fast-growing China and India. McCain did not explain or justify his need to hamstring the US with such an agreement, but we can surmise that he has fallen prey to the religion of green and is trying to appease the liberal earth gods.

McCain’s stance on climate change sets him apart from a large chunk of his party’s conservative base, which remains skeptical about the science on climate change. Now Republicans must wonder and ask the question, “Why do a maverick and a green-socialist look so much alike?”

  3. Hi LC,

    Not to worry, he’s probably already forgotten he said that.

  4. Hi Grit

    I wish it were that easy, but I get the impression he approves of the green movement mainly because of the added power and tax revenue it will create. It’s a shame that he can’t see the unintended consequences. But then again he is only a politician.

  5. Hi LC,

    I wouldn’t leap to the conclusion that McCain, or any other politician, isn’t aware that there may be unintended consequences to their actions. I suspect they actually hope for such, as trying to fix them provides another chance to grab even more power. Politicians aren’t, after all, necessarily stupid. Except for Barack “57 State” Obama.

    Speaking of the Profit of Hope and Change, has he bothered to explain that, rather large, gap in his education? Has the Press even asked him about it?

  6. Hi Grit

    Barack “57 State” Obama pretty much says it all. Either an Ivy League education is overrated or Obama is too senile for the position.

    Can you imagine this dip trying to negotiate anything without a teleprompter?

  7. Hi LC,

    I’m thinking he’d stick with the standard America is evil, we’re wrong, what can I do to make it up to you? Speaking of Obama, did you catch the video of him calling a reporterette “Honey?” There’s a post in there somewhere. I’m betting that his excuse will be that he was channeling Bill Clinton when he made that comment 🙂 Not that it’ll matter, since the main stream media won’t cover either of these goofs, or any future ones either.

  8. Hi, LC–

    We’ve really run to the end of our rope. Neither the Democans nor the Republicrats show any difference between them. None.

    The drive-bys use the word “unelectable” as though it was an inevitability that voting for some candidate, any candidate, might be a totally wasted, futile effort.

    In fact, a person is unelectable–pardon the obvious–only when people refuse to vote for that person.

    I was going to vote for Ron Paul but he’s far too valuable in Congress. I would ask you and readers in general to critically examine the Constitution Party. To many they are whacked out, but on critical examination the one thing that becomes more and more clear is that >em<they know, understand, and adhere to the letter of the Constitution and the loss of that in our national consensus is what got us where we are.

    Similar respect and honor for our most foundational document is what makes me like Ron Paul so much: he’s not against the war, he’s against the manner in which it has been unconstitutionally handled.

    Vote for a return to Constitutional government. Then lock and load and sleep well knowing you voted for your country, not your pocket.

    Regards,

    ara

  9. Hi Grit

    Yes, I saw the “Honey” remark. You gotta give it to Obama, he is the gift that keeps on giving. The only question now – will the word “honey” be added onto the hate speech list.

    Hi ara

    I also have a difficult time distinguishing between the two parties. Looks as if there is too much inbreeding taking place in Washington.

    I do agree with Ron Paul on one point. If you’re going to take the country to war at least have the decency to win the thing swiftly as possible. Dragging it out in order to allow the enemy a chance at victory or until the country is bankrupt is not a reasonable war strategy.
