Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger defended the state's greenhouse gas reduction law today, dismissing a Legislative Analyst's conclusion that determined the measure would cost the state jobs in the near term.
"I travel up and down the state, unlike others that only have theoretical opinions," the governor said during a brief sidewalk news conference after giving a speech at a downtown Sacramento hotel.

Pathetic. Disgusting. Unbelievable denial of reality. He is is in the wrong party.
I have never understood the lies on the fraudulent green economy. I do not understand how anyone can accept the lies. Even if I accept the need to transform the energy economy, there is no economic principle that indicates the radical transformation will not be costly. The green lie is just the broken windows theory of economics. Repairing broken windows is costly to the economy. The idea that government can force inefficient and costly energy production with a positive impact on the economy is ludicrous. Beyond this lunatic reasoning is government control of a vital industry. We have politicians effectively dictating energy investments. Politicians have no stake in the decision other than the next election. Politicians carefully hide the monstrous impacts of their decisions until they have left town.

In the same way that hurricanes and earthquakes unquestionably do.
Good grief. When will this idiot go away? Or at least just shut up?
