Richardson: Bin Laden death should lead to cap-and-trade POLITICO Published 04:45 a.m., Wednesday, May 4, 2011
Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson hopes that Osama bin Laden's death will spur President Barack Obama to promote climate change legislation.
"My hope is that from this success in the foreign policy arena two days ago, that he will be emboldened to take once again to the Congress legislation - not just to increase a renewable energy standard - but climate change legislation that this country and the world need," Richardson said Tuesday at a Climate Leadership Gala hosted by the Earth Day Network in Washington.
Climate change legislation, particularly anything labeled as toxic as "cap and trade," is seen as non-starter while Republicans hold the House and many Senate Democrats are wary of the issue. But Richardson warned climate bill backers against standing on the sidelines.
"We can sit back and say, 'Well we'll wait until the next election, wait until the political climate is better.' You know if we do that, we're doomed - if we don't take action right away," he said.

Maybe cap in the head.
He has gone from governor to incoherent Señor Non Sequitur in such a short period of time.
I thought Bin Laden was for Cap and trade shouldn’t that die with him?
Richardson is a crook, so it is a safe bet he has money tied up in the cap and trade scam.
Sure..., that follows. Perfectly logical for a moron....
Sounds like Bill has been smoking more of that trade coming across the border since he left the Guv’s office.
Are we sure he and Howard Dean aren’t related?
Maybe there should have been a more concerted effort to keep OBL alive if his absence from this mortal coil contributes to harmful degrees of global warming.
Is this dude bought off, or what?
Only stacks of crisp $100’s could possibly get you from killing bin Laden, to Cap & Trade.
In your dreams, Delta Sierra Richardson. It seems that the numnutz Democrats believe that the successful Special Ops mission has suddenly given Zerobama omnipotence. I have news for Richardson: the Republicans control the House, and Zero’s energy non-policies have driven gas prices up to $4 per gallon on the way to Zero’s expressed desire to see them at $5 and up. There is no way that this congress is going to do something as stupid as pass Cap and Trade, which would push gas prices even higher and likely lead to a depression.
Richardson has some BIG problems:
Oh sure...I get the connection between the two../s/
What planet is this guy on?
That's a REAL non-sequitur!
Why doesn’t this fool just shut the hell up...
Bin Laden death should lead to subsidies for Guatemalan fruit bat farms.
That makes about as much sense.
Bill’s trying to compete with Algore right? For making the stupidest, most incoherent statements, right? Sure, that’s got to be it.
It is a good thing that this absurd fool speaks his “mind” if merely to further demonstrate his lack of same. Perhaps some of the entranced zombie, other-worlder lib fools might examine Richardson’s ridiculous assertion and wake up!
Dear God! These Commie ecoterrorist extremists must be driven out of office everywhere they exist. They are out of control and intent on completely destroying our country.
And to think Clinton made him ambassador to the UN, so that he could find Monica a job. What an undistinguished career.
Sober up? Heck, he sounds like he’s on LSD.
Jus tmy opinion of course.
Convincing evidence that Bill Richardson is even dumber than Algore.
It ain't the booze, it's the crack.
Huh? I don’t see the connection.
Uhhh...so does cat = blender or rug = spoon? What The F**K???
It ain't booze or crack. Methinks it's lead poisoning, combined with low IQ and ADD.
As if gas prices were too low?
