    Thoughtful and reasonable approach or political backtracking?

    Chicago's Eugene Robinson (no accident he is out in front still attempting to minimize Palin and protect his fellow Chicago Way alumns...) wrote that Palin herself sought advice on a potential carbon trading market. Palin replies that what she was reviewing was nothing like the Cap n Tax measures being proposed by the Democrat Congress and at proponents in Copenhagen.

    ____

    I’d like to thank Eugene Robinson for highlighting Alaska’s achievements on climate change [“Palin’s own ‘Climate- gate,’” op-ed, Dec. 15] and for noting that I’ve “treated the issue as serious, complex, and worthy of urgent attention,” while making “any number of pragmatic, reasonable, smart decisions as governor.” But he’s wrong to suggest that my views have somehow changed or that now I’ll have to “renounce” my past efforts.

    Once again: I don’t deny that climate change is real. In creating a sub-cabinet to deal specifically with the issue, I said that “Alaska’s climate change strategy must be built on sound science and the best available facts and must recognize Alaska’s interest in economic growth and the development of its resources.” That goal made sense to me then, and it makes sense to me now.

    If this thread ends up as a Sticky...it's exclusively because of Sinatra's jizz.

    You know why Palin really quit? Because she knew she couldn't be elected as governor of Alaska after making a fool of herself and her constituents on the national stage.

    No shit! He starts more Palin threads than the Palin haters do. I think there might be a little obsession going on there. :eusa_whistle:

    As governor of Alaska, I sought common-sense solutions that took real-world costs and benefits into account. That’s what I’m looking for now. But that’s not what’s on the table in Washington or in Copenhagen.
