Are the Republicans afraid of the word? Is it the "Third Rail" of the Energy topic?
It seems that it should be the easiest thing in the world to counter the accusations of "no new ideas." If we start using "nuclear" in every conversation about energy, the libs who hate nuclear will knock each other over racing to come up with clean coal and slant drilling off the coast to whatever is in vogue at the time.
So-called spokesmen/women who are supposed to present the logical counter attack to the Dems self-induced longer recession if we go with their 1500 page, including amendments, just can't seem to get it together.
Let's touch base with any Republican we know on a national level and ask them to get on board.
EVERY CLICHE IN THE BOOK APPLIES!!!
We are now officially dead in the water.
The die has been cast.
You can't fight city hall.
I would rather fight than switch.
Don't tell me the bad guys never win.
and on and on and on....
It's just after 2:00 at which time I heard that Al Franken is the official filibuster stopper in the U. S. Senate and even though I didn't know it at the time I'm sure this was the reason I left Minnesota in 1950 and never looked back except to visit family.
Minnesota always had a problem with the Democrat Farm Labor Party, but now the whole state is full of liberals. Remember Paul Wellstone? The only self-procalimed Socialist in the Senate. I wish John Boehner and Paul Ryan were Senators rather than Reprssentatives--we just don't have any really strong, dependable men or women in the Senate to carry the leadership mantle.
This was a bummer of a day news wise, hope tomorrow is better--
