Posted on 09/21/2009 1:20:43 PM PDT by SeattleBruce
The cap-and-trade movement, spooked by the pounding health care reform took over the August break, is scrambling to persuade nervous Democrats they wont suffer politically for taking another tough vote this year.
When you get your butt kicked, like we did [after the House energy vote], it focuses the mind, said Steve Cochran, director of the Environmental Defense Funds National Climate Campaign. We found out that this is not something to hide from but something to lean on even in places where coal is king and Blue Dogs were perceived to be running for cover.
Climate bill supporters say they have spent the summer building precisely the kind of grass-roots network that health care didnt have, with grass-roots operations in more than 20 states.
A climate war room funded by more than 60 labor, business, faith, agriculture and environmental groups has been set up to coordinate ad dollars and communications.

All that anger might mitigate the current global cooling.
Maybe that’s the plan...?
Like these mush brained, useful idiots could live without their precious electronic devices.
I vote putting the “Green War Room” someplace they would be comfortable this coming winter, like Bismarck ND.
BTU tax, redux.
And the Dems know it.
I sent a letter to my local paper that suggests that 2010 is perhaps time for our Congressman, who voted for Waxman-Markey, to go even though he is nominally a conservative Democrat who earns consistent “A” ratings from the NRA. The letter says in part that REAL Democrats do not destroy working people’s jobs to enrich corporate special interests (U.S. Climate Action Partnerships) and Spanish stockholders, noting that Barry used our tax dollars to buy wind turbines from Iberdrola in Spain.
Right, the leftist version of the ‘faith based initiative’. Same denom groups that support abortion and gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender (so called GLBT - Gilbert)...even though they certainly can’t support it Biblically (not that that matters).
To these bozos, the Bible, despite the warnings in Revelation [Revelation 22:18
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book”] is a living document...like the libs feel about the Consitution also.
Nice - well crafed letter to the editor.
If they want a war, I will give them a flyin’ lead, heavy-casualties war.
We have a war room too. More than half the living rooms in America.
I hope the Dems have a few sets of flame resistant underwear, tums, aspirin, and a good desk to camp out under.
Grassroots my butt. Who’s funding this jerks? All they want to do for the climate is tax everyone and everything. Why don’t they propose solutions for energy efficient machines, find ways to bring the 2nd world on line with efficient devices from the start, etc. No, they just want to destroy Western civilization, not solve any problems.
I hereby DEMAND cap and trade be FORCED upon the people of this nation, FORCED on us.
Political consequences? Let the chips fall, Socialists!
