What Doesn't The GOP Understand About Global Warming/Alternative Energy (Part 398)

John Harris and Jim VandeHei have the (latest) score on the battle going on in the GOP over what to do about the global warming issue.

It's well worth the read.

Our two cents - moving off fossil fuels (that's "off", not "more drilling" and "more refineries") is a national strategic decision that will make this country a hell of a lot more secure.

GOP. National security. GOP. National security. GOP. National security.

Put that in your direct mail piece and smoke it.

Noted: This is also an issue that brings patchouli wearing, Volvo driving, Whole Foods shopping, Golden Retriever owning, suburban living "independents" to the table in a big way.

But why would the GOP want a piece of that action?

They did so well with just the hardcore base in '06.
