On Road to 60 Votes for Climate Bill, Senate Swells With Fence Sitters

Oct 20, 2009 Full story: www.nytimes.com 40

The fence is getting a bit more crowded. Despite two significant moves over the last month -- a bill introduction and the emergence of a possible bipartisan partnership -- the number of senators unwilling to commit to voting for comprehensive climate and energy legislation continues to grow.

These politicians have been detroying this Republic since Teddy Roosevelt held office and started pushing the big government intrusion of his Progressive movement. Soon our flag will change from the stars and stripes to that of the UN flag.

Agree. I like to say that only stupid people are breeding today. But, I like to add to that. Besides stupidity, the other greatest threat to mankind is that of the Federal Reserve Bank.

CNN Poll: Half the country disagrees with Obama on issues

Posted: October 20th, 2009
From CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser

WASHINGTON (CNN)– For the first time since he took over in the White House, Americans don't see eye to eye with President Barack Obama on the important issues, according to a new national poll. But the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey does indicate that a majority approve of how Obama's handling his duties as president.

According to the poll, which was released Tuesday, 48 percent of people questioned say that they agree with Obama on the issues that matter most to them, with 51 percent saying no.

That's a switch from April, when 57 percent said they agreed with the president on important issues, with 41 percent disagreeing.

"Obama is facing crunch time on a number of controversial issues, from health care to financial regulation to cap and trade to Afghanistan," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "The fact that most Americans no longer agree with him on important issues makes his task harder."

What are the reasons for such a turn around?

1- Obama LIES to the people
2- Obama borrows & spends without any positive result
3- Obama Escalates a War that only has 100 al-qaida left
4- Obama is still trying to blame everyone else while he's the boss
5- Obama showed his racial biases comparable to Al Sharpton w/professor gate
6- Obama looks like a fool when Iran walks all over him
7- Obama sits on Generals report for a month when it says we will Lose the WAR
8- Obama decides the Olympics are More Important than Generals report
9- Obama goes on Date night while 8 US Soldiers are overrun/killed while still not addressing Generals Report/request
10- Obama is no longer trustworthy. His decisions are shoddy.

As I see it, the only trouble with "global warming" or "climate change" as they're calling it, is that the weather won't cooperate.

More seriously , however, I have my doubts about the constitutionality of the United States entering into any type of global initiative of the magnitude that is being discussed here. It would seem to me to be a matter that should be debated at great length among the morons in Congress or at least evaluated by the imbeciles on the Supreme Court. That should take the better part of a decade, especially if they actually have to read the bill.

By that time, there will either be ice floes in Savannah and flamingos in Pennsylvania, or there will be nothing new under the sun...

The planet is cooling and data backs that up. CO2 has not changed. Any polotician that votes yes on this commits suicide if any of their voters have half a brain. Yet there are obama voters every where. So many do not have any brains at all. CBO says it will cost 7 million jobs and every american household $1700.00. Which part don't you libtards get? Qoq qhat a great thing to do during a recession. Obama cares? Look at what he is doing to all of us? Dumbocrats are useless and worse harming our nation,,, maybe beyond repair. I hope we can charge them all with treason which is exactly what they are doing.

A judge in Briton basically ruled that Al Gore's Global Warming agenda is a cruel hoax. A movie is coming out debunkng all the lies in "An Inconvenient Truth". In England, Gore's movie isn't allowed to be shown in schools anymore because it is so full of lies. No wonder people are backing away from it. It's garbage.

It's an estimate. LOL
But I stand by the claim-- there are virtually NO scientists that dispute global warming based on the evidence.
On what basis do you say that it doesn't exist, or isn't a real factor?
How about the fact that it hasn't warmed since 1998? How about the fact that the "scientist" that came up with the infamous "hockey stick graph" admitted he cherrypicked data to create it? How about the simple fact that computer weather models can't accurately predict the weather TWO WEEKS from now, much less 100 years? How about the fact that noone's even proved that man has ANY effect on climate change, and the fact that the climate has warmed and cooled several times over the time period between circa 1000 and 1900, before there was any signficant industrialization? If these people, and I use the term loosely, vote this in, vote them out. They know the public isn't buying "climate change". That's why they're dragging their feet.

A British judge has ruled that Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth can’t be shown in schools unless accompanied by materials explaining the film’s inaccuracies.

No wonder they are having trouble pushing the world's biggest lie. Americans are hip to it.
