Don’t ask them their solutions. They only have platitudes.


Here ladies and gentlemen is the ultimate example of Democratic pandering.

The leading Democratic presidential candidates are united on the government’s Yucca Mountain nuclear waste storage plan: They’d scrap it.

What then is their solution for dealing with the accumulated nuclear waste bound for Yucca?

They don’t have one.

What then is their solution to expanding nuclear energy in this country?

They don’t have one.

What then is their solution to make us an energy independent nation?

They don’t really have one except the platitudes. It’s all very similar to their strategy for dealing with terrorists.

  • Gov. Perdue to pray for rain. More to come.

    GOP strategist Rod Shealy Jr., son of Rod Sr., who is the top-rated consultant in neighboring S.C., was apparently involved in the Whitehead/Broun Congressional Race. More to come.

    Last week, Gov. Sonny Perdue led a prayer vigil appealing for divine intervention to deliver us from the drought. A day later, those pleas were answered — to a small degree — with a welcome trickle from the heavens.

    Gov. Sonny Perdue and House Speaker Glenn Richardson need to remember Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment: “Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican.” For months, these two powerful politicians have carried on a feud over, among other things, plans to sharply cut or eliminate property taxes across the state. In the meantime, more pressing matters have gone begging.

    Gov. Sonny Perdue’s term as chairman of the Republican Governors Association ends next week when the organization meets in California.
    On the West Coast, Perdue’s departure is making little news. Instead, California newspapers are focusing on the fact that their own governor, Arnold Schwartzenegger, will skip the meeting’s main event — a talk on “government transformation” by Newt Gingrich.
    Instead, Schwarzenegger will attend a closed door dinner with Perdue and other governors the night before, at the Orange County resort where the event is being held.

    Republican rivals Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney and John McCain sought on Friday to become the favorite of anxious social conservatives, each suggesting he offered the best chance of thwarting abortion rights supporter Rudy Giuliani. “This is not the time to turn our back on the progress we’ve made on the issues that matter most,” McCain, the Arizona senator, told a receptive gathering of “values voters.” “I have a record that can be trusted.”

    Senator Mel Martinez, the Florida Republican who has served as general chairman of the Republican National Committee, stepped down yesterday after 10 months on the job. In a statement, Mr. Martinez said he had met his goals of raising “the resources necessary to support our presidential candidate and ensure Republican victories next November.”

    John Edwards has invested much of his time in one state, Iowa. But he promised Friday that if he wins the Democratic nomination he’ll campaign in every state—even Republican strongholds—to capture the White House and bolster the party’s majorities in Congress. In a speech to union supporters at a downtown hotel, the former senator faulted members of his own party for being too quick to cede states like Montana, South Dakota and Kansas to the GOP in presidential contests. He cited his own Senate victory in North Carolina as evidence that Democrats can appeal across political and geographic lines, even in states with Republican pedigrees.
