Condi Rice to Dine With Terr’st Muammar Gaddafi

I said I was sorry, now buy our oil!

I said I was sorry, now buy our oil!

Swingin’ single and U.S. Secretary of State Condi Rice will break bread with terrorist leader Muammar Gaddafi, of Libya, this weekend. Never mind the fact that (r)epukes constantly criticize Obama’s reported willingness to sit down and chat with leaders of nations hostile to U.S. interests. Libya has apologized for the Lockerbie bombing which killed 180 Americans in 1988, and that means he’s A-OK with the Bush crowd. After all, Libya has plenty of oil, and the Bushies never have a problem putting their thirst for more oil before American lives.

DRILL IT DRY

KEEP ON DRILLIN

KEEP ON DRILLIN

The Sunday morning shows will be giving more than enough attention to the “drilling issue”, I suspect. It’s all over the w(r)ong wing wackosphere and that is usually a precursor to any concerted campaign effort. Unfortunately, what’s on the mind of the far right still holds weight with GOP strategists. Too much weight. If one were to look at the facts and scientific estimates, he or she would see that this drilling “issue” isn’t an issue at all, simply another bizarre fear button for the GOP to push. (Much like the social security “crisis”). The projected benefits including lower gas prices and less reliance on foreign oil are minimal. We are ignoring the inevitable. Like a drunk buying that “last bottle”, we are denying the urgency of the problem and hurting ourselves in the process. We will see no immediate impact- no “benefit” will be gained until 2017. Shouldn’t we be less reliant on ALL oil by then?

The “drill it dry” mentality has swept across Repukesville. It’s all they talk about. Their arguments question why anyone might be skeptical about this oil boom that’ll lead us to the promised land. It’s as if they believe that we are on the verge of some major discoveries, when all reputable estimates say that we’re not. I mean, it’s great that these people have such an optimistic outlook and can do spirit. But when you look at some of what these folks believe in, it can get downright scary. Much of the gang still believes global warming is a “hoax”. You can count them in for more exploration. Some also believe that the end of the world is near. It’ll be the showdown of Arabia, they tell me. I guess these people figure that since our days are numbered, screw the environment. They’re on board. My favorites of the gang are on the biddness end of it, though. They’re in for the cold hard cash and they craft the propaganda campaign that the gen pub (r)epukes are fed. “Scientific” data touting the bonanza to come once those drills hit the ground. More “scientists” doubting global warming. And Joe republican voter buys it. And somehow Obama seems to as well. Craziness.

Paul Krugman with the scoop…

Abramoff pal and Colorado senatorial candidate Bob Schaffer(R) was forced to admit today his involvement in an oil deal in Iraq that was “counterproductive to American interests in the region”. Recap here…http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/07/17/gop-senate-candidate-fess_n_113431.html.

 

 Bob Schaffer chose to put the economic interests of Aspect Energy ahead of our American security interests in Iraq. And now he wants to serve in the senate? Mark Udall is a better man for the job…http://www.markudall.com/.
