We Can Do It [in NYT op-ed, UN praises maverick Lindsey Graham for compromising] [BARF!!!]
The New York Times ^ | 2009-10-25 | Ban Ki-Moon

(snip)

U.S. leadership is crucial. That is why I am encouraged by the spirit of compromise shown in the bipartisan initiative announced last week by John Kerry and Lindsey Graham. Here was a pair of U.S. senators — one Republican, the other Democratic — coming together to bridge their parties’ differences to address climate change in a spirit of genuine give-and-take.

We cannot afford another period where the United States stands on the sidelines. An engaged United States can lead the world to seal a deal to combat climate change in Copenhagen. An indecisive or insufficiently engaged United States will cause unnecessary — and ultimately unaffordable — delay in concrete strategies and policies to beat this looming challenge.

The “genuine spirit of give-and-take” requires only Republicans cross the bridge spanning the partisan divide.

Lindsay: Hee, hee, hee. C'mon Al tell me that story again about how you dressed up in a diaper. It makes me so hot.

Al: Hee, hee, hee. Well, ok. I'll tell you how I wet myself too.

Lindsay: Wait, wait. (ziiiiippppp)

An engaged United States can lead the world to seal a deal to combat climate change in Copenhagen.

Ain't no deal sealed unless the Senate agrees. By 2/3 vote if memory serves.

CNN was recently bragging on Lindsay for bashing Beck. He’s replaced McCain as the RATS favorite rino.

Doubt it. Unless he can figure some way to get around Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution:

[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur....

The Commies have super majorities in the House and Senate, they have the White House, Kennedy is back and forth on the Supreme Court, and what's to stop an "unforseen illness" befalling Scalia or Thomas?

These people will do anything and everything that's required to succeed.

Reid just makes sure the vote is taken in the middle of the night without telling the Pubbies.

Heck, the Dems in the House are changing the locks to conference rooms and not giving keys to the Pubbies.

Don't put anything past these socialists.

This is what nails Repubs every time. They work to get glowing praise from news outlets that more and more Americans are rejecting and then act shocked when those same news organizations turn on them. You saw this with McNuts. When they had a real socialist/fascist/corporatist(Obama), they turned on McNuts in a right quick hurry. McNuts thought turning on those who pointed out the Rev. Wright/Obama connection in early 2008 would get him glowing praises from Chris Matthews. It did, but for a short time. When McNuts became desparate near the end of the 2008 campaign, he then tried the Wright issue and nobody was left to wipe his nose because he attacked the conservatives who pointed it out earlier and no way the news media was going to help him at that point given their knee pad support of Obama. This is why McNuts and Grahamnesty must GO!!!!

Finally something I can agree with! The US needs to stop standing on the sidelines and have the courage to be un-PC and beat these pro-AGW nations about the head and shoulders till they get some sense. If that doesn't work, take a pair of vise grips to their testicles. Grahmnesty is right, no more standing idly by, while the idiots take control!
