Why Conservatives Should Be Happy Obama Won

1. Obama won as the result of some conservative promises. He promised tax cuts and strength in Afghanistan. Of course, if he doesn't give 95% of us our cash, there are going to be many unhappy moderate types. However, Democrats normally get a pass on promise breaking. Bill Clinton ran on middle class tax cuts, raised taxes instead, and everyone turned their heads. George H. W. Bush was lambasted with 'Read My Lips'. It will be interesting to see if the double standard holds when Obama backs out.

2. McCain lost by running to the center. He never had the left. He lost the center with the stock market crash. He lost the right promising free money for loan defaulters. Let that be a lesson.

3. Black voters might be more able to vote their opinions rather than their race, following the Obama years. I don't think there will be a mass conversion to the Republican Party, but perhaps they will feel more a part of the system, allowing them to vote their opinions. Surely the entire race isn't actually liberal. As a side note, Jesse Jackson is out of business.

4. This was a house cleaning for the Republican Party. Those that have survived the bloodletting will be stronger for it.

5. Even with the unrestrained hatred for Bush, the credit crisis, a bad candidate (though a good man), an incredibly strong opponent flush with cash, and a media which provided free advertising for Obama for a year, 56 million people still voted for the Republican. Let me tell you, anyone who voted for McCain was not a moderate or undecided. That's the base 'my friends'. A 56 million person base is nothing to shake a stick at. We can only hope that the unhinged left comes completely unglued in their glee over the next 2 years. Bring on 2010 baby!

Weather Channel Alarmists

The Weather Channel has lost its way, according to John Coleman, who founded the channel in 1982.

Coleman told an audience at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change on March 3 in New York that he is highly critical of global warming alarmism.

Coleman also told the audience his strategy for exposing what he called “the fraud of global warming.” He advocated suing those who sell carbon credits, which would force global warming alarmists to give a more honest account of the policies they propose.

I heard one of these on the radio today. The Kennedys continue to stump for Hugo, which I suppose makes sense as they share the same politics.

More Global Warmist Propaganda

...from USA Today.

USA facing increase in severe storms, study says

Global warming could bring the USA a dramatic increase in the frequency of weather conditions that feed severe thunderstorms and tornadoes by the end of the 21st century, says a study out Monday.

Some locations could see as much as a 100% increase in the number of days that favor severe thunderstorms, says the study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"The densely populated regions of the South and East, including New York City and Atlanta, could be especially hard-hit," reports study lead author Jeff Trapp of Purdue University.

The fuel for the more intense storms would be the predicted warming of the Earth caused by the burning of fossil fuels that release greenhouse gases.

Although the typically stormy spring could see more storms, "summer should have the highest increases in severe weather," says Trapp. His team reports that by the end of the century, the number of spring days with severe thunderstorm conditions would increase mostly over the southern plains and Florida. But in the summer, almost the entire eastern half of the country might see an increase in days conducive to more severe storms, with the largest increases likely near the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic coast.

Kevin Trenbreth, a senior scientist with the National Center for Atmospheric Science in Boulder, Colo., who was not part of this study, says, "What they suggest here seems quite plausible." But he adds that although a study such as this is overdue and welcome, it is not as definitive as he would like because of limitations in the climate models used in the study. However, "conditions may be even worse than depicted," he says.

I guess science is not a perfect science. When does hurricane season start again?

"I was very comfortable with it and really upset that it was put out two hours before a debate with the suggestion that certain agencies were asked to bear the cost of my security. When you had a chance to look at it, it took about 3 to 4 hours to go through all of the records. The story turns out to be a totally false story."

This Time She's Serious

And she means it too!

Clinton says no to licenses for illegals

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday came out against granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, after weeks of pressure in the presidential race to take a position on a now-failed ID plan from her home state governor.

Oh, which way does the wind blow?

"As president, I will not support driver's licenses for undocumented people and will press for comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of the issues around illegal immigration including border security and fixing our broken system."

But not as senator.

Colleen Flanagan, a spokesman for Chris Dodd, called Clinton's position "flip-flopping cubed. She was for it before she was against it, before she was for it, before she was against it."

That about says it all.
