The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Hump day… lets hump it out

  • Sen. McCain was speaking near the naval academy in Florida where he trained eons ago, and he’s hoping that his veteran status and his ties to the state will propel him to victory in next week’s primary. Speaking of gop candidates, as I said would happen, Fred Thompson has dropped out of the presidential race. The man waited too long to declare himself (if he would have done it when his buzz were high, he probably would have fared better), his campaign was stagnant from the get-go (never a good sigh), and he acted as though he didn’t want to be there. For someone that was allegedly the ‘second-coming’ of Ronald Reagan, he certainly wasted an opportunity…
  • And then there’s Rudy… and his I’m-sure-to-be-disastrous strategy of putting all his eggs into the Florida basket...
  • Sens. Clinton and Obama are still sniping at each other… and with each sling of the mud, probably pushing one more undecided towards Edwards. If he repeats his 2004 South Carolina performance, he could become a Super Tuesday factor super-quick, stay tuned.
  • Chris Matthews is apparently drinking from the Giuliani Kool-Aid… that or he’s losing his mind from his battles with Keith Olberman. Appearing on Hardball last night, Matthews said that Rudy Giuliani and his presidential campaign hasn’t been beaten yet… this despite finishing fifth in Iowa, fourth in New Hampshire, sixth in Michigan, sixth in Nevada, and sixth in South Carolina. (I know Rudy is banking on Florida and 9/11, but to overcome these pathetic finishes is going to take more than winning the sunshine state)
  • “President” Bush is pushing his economic stimulus package and, something very odd for him, is stressing that ‘common ground’ is possible when negotiating a package (Knowing Bush and his ways, I’ll believe it when I see it)
  • And have we mentioned? That a new study by the Center for Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism found that President Bush and his top officials issued 935 false statements about the threat from Iraq in the two years following 9/11? (I know; you’re shocked…) it seems, according to the report, that Bush himself led with “259 false statements” with 231 stressing weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and 28 about Iraq’s links to al Qaeda, both of which have been proven to be false…

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming.

The Daily Green just put an article out talking about how the presidential candidates are not being asked where they stand on the issue of the climate change - this is surprising to me considering its such a MAJOR concern to people. I just saw a poll on www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot what their next leader thinks about global warming (after you take it they show you the results). Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

If not, go to http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx and take their poll to see which way the results go. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. No matter which political party you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.
