Jay Carney just said that the individual mandate in Obamacare was a Republican idea. What else will be blamed on Bush/Republicans and how can they get away with all of this BS?

I suppose he will find a way.

He certainly will not admit that he grounded the Firefighting airplanes.

Maybe they can charge Carl Rove for it while they are at it.

At the gym the other day, I saw a CNN story that asserted in all seriousness that guns started the Colorado fires - by a bullet ricocheting off a rock and sparking the fire. The story was replete with a young soccer Mom verging on hysteria about how all the children were endangered by gun enthusiasts at the practice range. It was jaw-dropping.

And I guess even they realized it wasn’t gonna fly: I never heard or saw the preposterous claim again.

Last night one one of the Fox News programs, the host mentioned why is Obama out campaigning when he should be in Colorado and doing something to help these people losing their homes etc. Someone must have enlightened Obama because suddenly today, he announces that he is going to Colorado. Conservative news people giving him too much information that he can act upon.

I saw that story too—but I think it was in the context of one of the Utah wildfires (same difference I know—but at that time UT fires were worse tha. CO ). Anyways...the inanity of it caused that trial balloon of anti-gun propaganda failed. Epically.

Three degrees of separation:
Bush>Big Oil>global warming>wild fires in Colorado.

Bob Beckel has already blamed Bush. He said under the Bush administration the undergrowth was allowed to grow too much and that is the fuel which gave the fire the start. Hard to believe he would make such a conclusion.

Bush isn’t to blame, the fires are caused by racism

Probably should really look to the Food Stamp Presidents EPA and Dept of Interior. When the pests were destroying the lodgepole pines, spraying to kill the critters was banned. Likewise, clearing out the diseased trees was banned by the Dept of Interior and legal actions by Environmental Groups.

He can blame Bush for “loose guns laws” and claim that target shooting started the wild fires or blame it on Global Warming. To a leftist Republicans and guns and global warming are all the same.

I can see it now... While hussein jets in and out, all air traffic will be grounded for Air Force One. That'll include the fire-fighting aircraft.

hussein will probably demand a photo-op with the Governor, Mayor, Fire Chief, Incident Commander, a fire crew or two (suitably smudged/made-up like they're just off the line)...

Maybe wookie can come along for a little shopping and further delay things.

Plan on not getting any serious fire-fighting done on Friday.

It was Rove and his Weather Machine causing climate change on behalf of Bush. It just took longer than expected.

Three years ago, Dick Cheney drove several OIL tankers out to a bunch of different Colorado forests and strung very long slow burning fuses to them all. Then, the day GWB left the White House, he and Carl Rove snuck into Colorado and lit those slow, slow, slow fuses. Then, a couple of weeks ago, they reached the tankers and B-O-O-M...burning oil blew up and spread into huge fires.

I know this is fact as Jay Carney has leaked it to MSNBC tonight and he will talk about it at tomorrows press conference. My fishing buddies' brother-in-law's 3rd cousin 2 times removed is out on work-release and a janitor at the MSNBC studios and he was asleep in a stall in the mens bathroom. He woke up and overheard Chrissy Matthews and that other DUDE, Rachel Maddow, talking about it when they were side-by-side using a urinal.

If Zer0 is reelected he can cause the seas to rise again until the fires are out, but he will stop the rise in the seas before it extinguishes the sun.

I have read that Obama’s Interior Dept reduced the numbers of planes they have and lease for firefighting. If true Obama might share a good deal of the blame.

Believe it or not, back in the daze of clinton, a huge fire was burning in California that sparked a political debate followed here on FR. The thread had the dramatic picture of various wildlife crossing a stream with giant flames nearby if that rings a bell for anyone.

A major point of discussion among the congress persons was the clearing of the undergrowth that the econazis had managed to pretty much stop in the name of wilding. Or as stated here http://www.archive.org/stream/californiaforest00unit/californiaforest00unit_djvu.txt

maintain the sustainable economic

16 well-being and stability of communities in areas

17 dependent upon national forest resources; and

18 (E) are developed, to the extent possible,

19 with consideration of the conditions that are

20 knoA\Ti to have existed on these lands or on

21 similar lands before the impacts of European

22 settlement.

During the debate and wrangling out of a bill one of the notoriously not so brilliant democrat congress women whose name escapes me at the moment submitted this bit of wisdom to be included in the bill: No clearing of the forests should take place because it would diminish the shade and shade prevents forest fires.

May not be the exact words but the meaning was the same.

As I recall, her suggestion died in committee.

I remember the debate. But the eco-nuts prevailed and said the underbrush was part of the ecosystem and had to stay. Of course the dems dutifully followed their direction and killed the bill. But Beckel did not tell the story quiet true-to-form. He claimed the conservative position today on The Five.

I hope he gets too close to the fire and “poof”, GONE!
With all the hot BS he expounds, some of that gas would surely explode........wishful thinking?
