Who is trangulating now?
Posted by: McQ on Monday, May 12, 2008

Triangulation - one of Bill Clintons Dick Morris inspired methods of stealing issues from Republicans.

Busily engaged in doing that on the environmental front is that great conservative, John McCain [/snark]:
After spending several weeks staking out positions on taxes, Iraq and judges designed to appeal to conservatives, John McCain is shifting his attention to independents and Democrats, with proposals on climate change.

The Republican presidential candidate also is using his stance on energy and the environment to draw distinctions between himself and President Bush, whose popularity is at a near-record low.

Sen. McCain's support of regulating global-warming gases like carbon dioxide — the biggest environmental issue before Congress — more closely resembles the stance of his Democratic rivals, Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, though he disagrees with them on how such regulations should be structured.

Besides championing legislation to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions, Sen. McCain has opposed the administration's call to open parts of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling, citing the refuge as a natural treasure on par with the Florida Everglades and the Grand Canyon in his home state of Arizona.
I'd love to believe this is all election year pandering and he has no intent on acting on this if he indeed is elected president, but unfortunately I don't believe that to be the case. His blowzy reference to ANWR as a national treasure on par with the Florida Everglades and the Grand Canyon is just too ridiculous for words.

But politically it may work, although it is clear the more extreme among the "environmentalists" will never be satisfied:
"He's certainly better than Bush, and ... the average Republican senator" on environmental matters, but "dramatically worse than the average Republican governor," Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club, said in an interview.
Regardless of who occupies the White House next January, I think you'd better prepare yourself to pay through the nose for this manufactured crisis known as global warming climate change.

What do we call Obama’s trick—spoof triangulating?

Obama pretends to take a position above and between the left and the right sides, but it’s only a magician’s misdirection. He never left the left side in the first place, but the audience oohs and aahs to see him suspended in mid-air above the center.

How does he do it? How much longer can he do it?

How does he do it?
Either people have selective hearing and only hear the words "change" "unite" and "different" or they never paid attention to what the politicians were doing in the first place and think redistribution of wealth is a new concept.
How much longer can he do it?
until the sheeple get to the greener pastures he’s promising to lead them to and find out it’s a field of thorns and brush.

I never understood the fawning love for ANWR. It is a wasteland. Furthermore we have had extensive drilling in Alaska with no big impact on the environment.
ANWR is proof that environmentalism is the triumph of emotion over logic.
