Finally it's here. Election Day 2008. Is it really possible that we will elect a man like Obama. I have written about him several times before. At least we won't have to deal with his serial lying anymore, one way or another.
You may have heard the clip from his January 8, 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board where he assured them any new coal fired electric generating stations would be bankrupted by his Cap and Trade program. He was very pleased with himself.
I hope he has not considered that the people who will be hurt by the rising electricity costs resulting from his program will not be me and my rich friends. It hardly matters to us what electricity costs. It will be all the middle class and lower people he claims to want to help so much. You know those tax credits and transfer payments that are going to make their lives so much better? They'll be used to pay for electricity. Wow, what a boon to humanity.
If he has considered the impact of his proposed policy and would go ahead anyway, so much the worse.
