"It's clear a majority of Congress wants to act,"—Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)Like March the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act of 2008 came in like a Lion and went out like a Lamb. What happen to the legislation that was supposed to end Global warming? It got capped and traded off to defeat in Congress!
Why it fell 48 to 36 votes short of a majority and it was stopped and blocked in the Senate and all that the hapless Democrat majority in the Senate could do was produced letters from six senators — including both presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain — saying that they would have voted for the measure had they been there. Yeah woulda, coulda, shoulda, maybe you shoulda been there, after all that is your job Senators!
Undoubtedly Democrats will blame the dastardly Republicans for blocking their bill but if a Democrat majority of Congress wanted to act on this legislation, Sen. Boxer, why then couldn’t you muster up a few more votes? You are in the majority you know.
Oh I see it’s that new math and that new reality that Sen. Boxer is using. You know the reality is the Planet is actually getting cooler according to Scientists, BUT to the Al Gore Global warming enthusiast the Planet has a fever. That’s the new reality regardless of the facts! Even Sen. Harry Reid can do a very good Al Gore new reality impersonation:
So instead of debating the Lieberman-Warner legislation on its merits Sen. Reid pulled the legislation to reintroduce it after the elections believing that his reality will prevail with a new President and additional Democrat victories in both the House and Senate.
So why is he blaming Republicans, he has control of the Senate agenda and he has the majority in the Senate.
Oh that’s right according to Sen. Reid the Iraq war is lost and America can’t win in Iraq, there is such a phenomenon as Global warming and the Republicans are the cause for everything that’s wrong with America.
Democrat Alternative Reality!
