Illegal Aliens? Still running loose.
So how about some good news? From Eugene Robinson: "Do nothing Republicans on climate change."
Woo hoo! Republicans are stopping one socialistic nonsensical program -- and man, are the liberal toadies angry.
The vast majority of scientists who have devoted their professional lives to studying the Earth's climate believe human-induced warming is an urgent problem requiring bold action. Republican candidates for president insist they know better.
With one possible exception -- Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who barely registers in the polls -- GOP contenders either doubt the scientific consensus on climate change or oppose attempts to do anything about it. This promises to be one of the starkest ideological divides facing voters next year.
No pressure; it's only the fate of the planet hanging in the balance.
Before President Obama could even announce his administration's tough new curbs on carbon emissions from power plants, Republican hopefuls launched pre-emptive attacks. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who flat-out denies that climate change is taking place, accused scientists of "cooking the books" and Democrats of choosing "California environmentalist billionaires and their campaign donations" over "the jobs of union members." Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida charged that the new rules "will make the cost of electricity high for millions of Americans." Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called the regulations "unconstitutional" and claimed they would cost jobs.The vast majority of scientists for 2,000 years believed the Earth was the center of the universe. They were wrong then. Eugene Robinson is wrong now.
