Skip to comments.McCain Joins Global Warming Cult (Candidate is making himself "Obama Lite")
Posted on 05/15/2008 4:13:58 AM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle
In an effort to win over those "moderates" who believe that global warming is about to destroy the planet, Republican presidential candidate John McCain spoke Monday at a Portland, Ore., training facility for Vestas Wind Technology. He claimed, "The facts of global warming demand our urgent attention, especially in Washington."
There certainly is more "hot air" on this and a lot of other subjects in Washington, but that isn't what he meant. The era of big government is so not over, as Bill Clinton claimed it was in 1996. It is just beginning and increasingly the political contests seem to be about who will manage its growth, not who will reduce its size, cost and reach.
Despite a recent Wall Street Journal editorial characterizing his position on global warming as "Obama lite," McCain asserted, "We stand warned by serious and credible scientists across the world that time is short and the dangers are great. The most relevant question now is whether our own government is equal to the challenge." No, the most relevant question is whether global warming is true. Cults ignore evidence and facts contrary to their blind faith. Science should never be blind to opposing views, but the apostle of global warming, Al Gore, and his new disciple, John McCain, want us to believe in a 2008 version of the Pete Seeger anti-war lyric: "we were -- knee deep in (carbon monoxide) and the big fool said to push on."

Now pick the Huckster for veep and seal your fate Johnny. Snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Despite the fact you are running against McGovern 2.0.
You really have to work at being “Empty Suit Lite”.
One of these three babosos unfortunately will soon be the leader of the free world.
Look for a continuing downturn of Americas greatness.
Be honest, the vast majority of us wouldn’t choose and of these three to have a beer and pizza with.
Keep going left, John.
Come October, you can start framing Obama as a rightwing evangelical whacko.
Fine. He may win over the moderates, but the conservatives will stay home and not open their wallets to the RNC.
McCain will either lose or else win and have a veto proof Dem majority in Congress. Either way, WE lose...
America will always be great as long as each of us displays that greatness in our daily lives. The government has no control over my happiness because I put my trust in Jesus.
All that oil that sits in ANWAR and all the oil in the Gulf of Mexico is a very good reason to start hitting back at the GW cult.
Gov. Crist from FL is on F&F and said he agrees with John McCain concerning the issue of global warming.
Sanity has left the building.
Ummmmmmm... the very same ANWAR in which McCain steadfastly refuses to even consider attempting to initiate drilling, you mean...?
Now would be a good time for Angelic intervention.
Has the McLame Snake Oil Express chugged on to this thread yet? It must be derailed somewhere.
I am waiting to hear how we just misunderstand Juan.
Our nation is clearly on the Good Ship Gorebal Warming!
Nothing like populist Democratic morons to make what is not broken broke and unlivable. Welcome to the dark ages of man made famines, pipe dreams, idiots, cowards and inhospitable evil suicidal liberal fascist politics.
I wouldn't open my door to any one of them.
(Besides, Obama as a closet muslim abstains from beer...and pizza too if it has pepperoni.)
My dad was tortured in prison; he doesnt overreact to things. So if he starts freaking out, you know its time to freak out, she says. And I think hes freaking out about the environment. Hes like, Im genuinely worried about climate change; its happening right now.Read the whole thing: http://men.style.com/gq/blogs/gqeditors/2008/03/caps-font-var-1.html
And nothing like Republicrats who jump on the socialist bandwagon thereby beating the Democrap morons to the punch regarding gorebal warming.
