The Economist discovers the global warming data might not support turning our economy inside-out. “The article rightly does not argue that anthropological global warming is a delusion. But it does make the point that an awful lot depends on whether the climate is less sensitive to CO2 emissions than previously believed.” it’s a good thing Al Gore has Arab oil money to fall back on.
Will energy state Democrats discover opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline is bad for their political health? “Two-thirds of Americans (66%) favor building the pipeline, which would transport oil from Canada’s oil sands region through the Midwest to refineries in Texas. Just 23% oppose construction of the pipeline. . . . Substantial majorities of Republicans (82%) and independents (70%) favor building the Keystone XL pipeline, as do 54% of Democrats.”
Former Dem staffers discover MSNBC is their safe haven, where nary a disagreeable word about their former employer need be mentioned. DNC operative, Clinton White House veteran and Hillary Clinton adviser Karen Finney now joins Obama flunkies David Axelrod and David Plouffe. No, this is not a late April Fool’s joke.
He may discover his “brother” wants to disown him. “Salomon Melgen, the Florida doctor and big contributor to Sen. Robert Menendez, says he and the New Jersey Democrat are ‘like brothers.’ . . . Melgen has given $700,000 to Menendez and other Democratic politicians, and a grand jury is reportedly investigating whether Menendez improperly helped his friend’s businesses by contacting U.S. officials in a Medicare billing dispute and Dominican officials over their failure to enforce a port contract.”
Once Obama discovers an energy company things go badly for the taxpayer and the company. We’ve seen this routine before: “Fisker Automotive, the green-car company that has not built a car since July, has hired law firm Kirkland & Ellis to advise it on a possible bankruptcy filing, a person close to the matter said on Thursday.”
The Associated Press discovers it is all about him. “Obama Image Machine Whirs as Press Access Narrows.”
The MSM discovers the NRA won in D.C. “NBC’s Chuck Todd told his audience this morning that the organization is “probably going to win this fight here in Washington.” In the states, however, it’s a different story. Todd cited Connecticut and Colorado, which are set to sign sweeping restrictions are firearms into law. His analysis corresponds with that of NRA president David Keene, who in February said that he viewed state legislation as far more of a threat than the proposals under consideration in Congress. So the organization’s next battle may be on the local level.” Notice, unlike marriage, that when it comes to guns the left is all about federalism.
