Nuclear power is where it's at. If they built 1000 of those, and take care of them properly. It's celebratable.

When McCain was running against Bush. He seemed sharp and confident. When he ran for President in '08....something seemed to be missing.

Money. He was outspent by as much as 8-1 in key battleground states. That's what happens when one side lies about accepting public funding then reneges....

But that's another subject entirely...fact is, Obama was dead-set against Nukes. Now he's all for them.

He can change his opinion like any other man, woman, or child...can't he? And even if he is still against them, doesn't that mean he's putting aside his personal opinions to accomplish things that will be good for the US?

When Bush wanted to drill for oil off shore, the Liberals in the media went nuts about it. Now that the great NObama wants to do it, not one word from the left -wing media bashing him. Shocking !

We're waiting for the other shoe to fall, when the big CO2 Tax hits on everything, we'll all be paupers.
Just like he promised.

Which, as you embrace it, you also embrace the hypocrisy the left has shown throughout. When these policies were explored and implemented under Bush, they were evil and awful. Suddenly, when a Democrat embraces and implements the SAME EXACT POLICIES, they somehow are scrubbed clean and are resurrected and reborn as fresh, new, exciting, and, most mysteriously, GOOD policy ideas.

It is the apotheosis of hypocrisy...
speaking of hypocirsy? this was too easy of a search

As i understand it Bush was never for additional oil exploration on the coast of florida. his brother jeb was agianst it. but when oil prices spiked in 2008 he was for it agian...and his brother already got elected. i guest another case of flip floping.

just a sample of the article

Bush prevents oil, gas drilling off Florida coast
Government to buy back leasing rights


From wire reports

Associated Press
President Bush and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush meet in the Oval Office on Wednesday.



WASHINGTON -- With his brother, Gov. Jeb Bush, looking on, President Bush sealed a deal Wednesday to prevent further oil and gas drilling off the white sand beaches of the Florida Gulf Coast and in the cypress swamps near the Everglades.

The unexpected announcement would require the federal government to repurchase $235 million worth of oil and gas leasing rights in the Destin Dome area, about 25 miles south of Pensacola, and in three wildlife areas including Big Cypress National Preserve.

Jeb Bush acknowledged that the Oval Office announcement would boost his re-election campaign in Florida, the swing state in the 2000 presidential election and a tourism mecca where polls show 75 percent oppose offshore drilling.

Afterward, the clearly buoyed governor spoke to Florida reporters on a car phone and was not at all flustered by a suggestion that his brother George W. Bush was only mining environmental votes in Florida and oil contributions in Alaska, where the presi
dent supports drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

So "Bu-bu-bu-Bush" it is, then.

It's old. It's tired. And it's irrelevant. You are attempting to slice the argument REALLY thinly to deflect from the fact that Obama was against additional drilling, then for it, then against, and now for it.

Fact: Bush was for drilling in ANWR.
Fact: Bush was for drilling in Bristol Bay
Fact: Bush was for drilling off the East Coast
Fact: Bush was for drilling off the West Coast

Bush was evil for wishing to drill off the coasts of the US. Now Obama is saintly for suggesting the same. THAT is the salient point. The left will play word games, and spin and twist, deflect and project, babble "Bush Bush Bush!" all the live-long day, but all the excuses and empty rhetoric cannot and will not change the fact that this was BAD when Bush suggested, and now it's GOOD that Obama is suggesting it.

I have yet to hear a single liberal here, or anywhere for that matter, make a compelling and legitimate argument as to why the same exact policies that are bad when the other guy pushes them are suddenly good when THEIR guy pushes them.

In fact, NOW you are trying to say that Bush was BAD for protecting the environment! How do you guys manage to pull off these ridiculous mental gymnastics? I mean, it's laughable!
