A male also said he was Irish and no comment was made whatsoever questioning that. Maybe that bewilders me. Not about gender ..not personal.


I'm actually not bewildered and I'd appreciate it if it was dropped.

You're right, sorry.

If you're referring to me... well, I'm only half Irish. But I think this is somewhat just a misunderstanding. In the US, between Americans, statements like "I'm Irish" mean "I'm ethnically Irish", generally. In Europe, "I'm Irish" means something more along the lines of "I have citizenship of Ireland". The former doesn't necessarily carry connotations of strong connections to present day Ireland; the latter does.

"I will set a national goal of America and North America -- North American energy independence by 2020," Romney pledged. "That means we produce all the energy we use in North America. And there are a number of things I'm going to do to make that happen. It is achievable. This is not some pie in the sky kind of thing. This is a real, achievable objective."
Nice plan by Romney. All the "we" in that statement = Americans.

I heard an interview, he wants to include Mexico and Canada for a true North American alliance. Most of the refiners are in the U S. So that would be good for American companies and North American consumers.

I would like to see the team of experts that have told him this is actually possible. I've read a lot of experts say that this isn't even physically possible, let alone in 7 years?

Of course it is not.

It is just a little more sophisticated than, "drill, baby, drill"

Energy policy to the left of the fracker-in-chief Obama - and the leftiebots on here will line up to villify it.

Hilarious.

Look a bit into this and how much money Canadians are losing because the US refineries are paying about 15-20% below market price for unrefined oil.

Why do you think that even the right in Canada isn't particularly upset about the Keystone decision? Because they know that Canada is getting hosed right now. Frankly if Canada didn't have to dig under the Rockies to Kitimat (very expensive, very difficult), it would probably rather deal with the Chinese who, if nothing else, pay a fair price.

TAMPA—Republican officials on Saturday cancelled most of Monday’s planned opening of the Republican National Convention, bowing to concerns about the safety of delegates who were to gather as the tropical storm Isaac barreled into the area.

The plan, announced in a conference call, was to formally gavel the convention open, then recess until Tuesday.
maybe they should let the ones that are not afraid of the rain show up.

because when you are president and it rains, somebody has to be in charge.

Lindsay Graham summarizes the current state of the GOP quite well:

Quote:
“The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

I see a huge opportunity for the GOP, it is kind of simple.

After the election, just pull a Reagan and let some immigration legislation through, then go after the hard working social conservative Latino vote, if they move that demographic from 25 % to 35% or more, they could win a lot more elections.
