Obama: The Hattrick
 
OK, this has been underway for 25 years, he voted to fund it...twice. There's 57,000 tons of waste stored at temporary sites across the country, and we've spend 9 BILLION on this so far, so what's Obama got to say about the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump?

Let's pull the funding and find a better way.

Bear in mnd, this is the BEST site we could find. It's been in the works for 25 years. The temporary storage we are using is NOT safe nor is it the answer. But Obama thinsk we should start from scratch AFTER he's funded it twice? How long will that take? 25 MORE years?

I am sincerely starting to doubt the capabilities of this guy to govern the US. If he keeps this up, articles of impeachment may be in order. EVERY day it gets worse, and it's clear the guy just has no clue what's he's doing.

WASHINGTON, March 4 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama's proposed budget cuts off funding for the controversial Yucca Mountain nuclear repository, observers say.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the president's proposal could end the decades-long controversy over the proposed nuclear waste dump site.
The newspaper noted that during the presidential campaign, Obama said he was opposed to the project, which would provide a resting ground for a large portion of the nation's radioactive waste.
"Yucca Mountain is not an option, and the budget clearly reflects that," U.S. Department of Energy spokeswoman Stephanie Mueller.
The Post said Obama's budge proposal does not say where the White House would like to store about 57,700 tons of nuclear waste at more than 100 temporary sites across the country, or with the approximately 2,000 tons generated each year by nuclear power plants.
"The new administration is starting the process of finding a new strategy for nuclear waste," Mueller said.

We could always dump the waste in N. Korea and Afghanistan. Maybe that's going to be his new policy.

ho hum. yet another panic article so the right can blame nuclear waste on obama.

who cares if obama voted to fund it? alot of people voted to fund the disposal of our nuclear waste. was it explained to them the risks of dumping it along a fault line?

i mean its not like these people in washington hold doctorates in plate techtonics and seismic activity.

i wonder if oil lobbyists would keep a better alternative under wraps.

So it's now okay to just vote for things willy-nilly without taking the time to learn what the issues are actually about?

I'm not blaming Nuclear waste on Obama. We all know it was all created by Bush anyway. I'm blaming Obama for not funding the actual project that he previously funded that has been designed specifically to deal with this, while, in the meantime, more waste builds up at temporary sites that cannot handle the demand so we can take, what? Another 25 years to figure something better out?

There is nothing Obama does that you won't defend, is there? Charging war vets for their injuries? Check! Destroying weapons brass instead of recycling it? Check! Sending the country into bankruptcy with 10 tril in unsustainable debt? Check!

theres nothing obama says or does that you wont attack, is there?

last i checked, we are not 10 trillion in debt, we arent charging war vets for injuries, and we arent destroying military brass instead of recycling. :hunch:

but that fact kinda takes all the fun out of the panic and the "redemption of bush" mission.

funny how you always bring up bush

bu, bu, bu, bu, being that he is irrelevant and all.

You mean like the liberals did for the past 8 years regarding Bush? Surely you're not saying that what's good for the goose isn't good for the gander? :wink02:

Spot on! :drink:

I can't speak for Tony here, but that's the typical liberal way of thinking.

Whelp - sorry to rain on their parades, but it's time for them to have the poo flung back at them for the next 3 years and 9-1/2 months. :poop:
