Ritter Meets Bush

  • 10 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

From the Rocky Mountain News:

If he gets to ask just one question of President Bush today, Gov. Bill Ritter said he will ask about proposed budget cuts for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden.

Ritter, who is in the nation’s capitol for the National Governors Association’s winter meetings, told an alliance of labor, business and environmental groups this morning that he hopes to make the case for promoting energy independence when he and other governor’s make their customary visit to the White House.

    1. I was not aware that he was trying to cut it again. While I desperately want to see a balanced budget, SERI/NREL (and NASA in my opinion) is one of the smartest penny that we spend. Somehow, I suspect that W. will be the setting the standard by which future leaders will be judged. Hopefully, future candidates who have tanked a company or a state gov. will not be considered by any party.

        1. The GOP is such a divided and illogical group. On the one hand, they fight hard core against religious Muslims extremists controlling a gov. (and they should). But at the same time, the evangelicals and now the catholics have pushed into the GOP and try to push their religion into controlling our nation and others. Near as I can tell, there is no real difference between the Muslim extremists who is trying to take over a gov. vs. a Christian extremists(Dobson, roberts, etc) who is also pushing the same .

          But what I find the funniest of all this, is that none of the catholics and evangelicals are looking hard  at what is happening. For example, down in Miss, Louisiana, and even in Texas, the adoption agencies apparently made it impossible for Mormans or Catholics to adopt; they were regarded as unfit parents. Of course, that should have put up a warning sign to the catholics/mormans of what will happen if somebody like Roberts or a dobson ever wins . Likewise, the core GOP pays great lip service to the evangelicals, but really does nothing for it. Even the passing of dollars to religious support groups is actually less than when W. took office. But if W.’s group every pushed it to increase, then a satinist group could apply and do similar things that the other groups do. IOW, the more that religion is co-mingled with gov, the more that the religious groups will learn to hate the outcome.

          1. that people read a book that recently came out.  It is called “American Fascists, The Christian Right and the War on America”.  Written by Chris Hedges, who graduated from Harvard Divinity School and is the son of a Prebyterian minister.  Interesting and provocative.

              1. Perhaps what is needed is a wiki where resources and history can be put into it. For example, I was trying to find out the colorado registered voters percentage yesterday and having a hard time. If we had a wiki, I would have placed it in there so that it would be easier to find it for future discussions. Likewise, the book sounds interesting.

                BTW, wiki’s can be locked down in the same way that this site is; anybody can read, but only registered can change it. There will be some damage to them, but over time, it should prove to be a useful resource.
