Analysis: Signed, sealed and delivered, GOP-style
If the slew of votes Congress took this summer left any doubts, the Republican Party made clear on the first full day of its nominating convention where it stands on energy and environment issues.
It likes Big Coal, wants to drill coast-to-coast for more oil and gas, would approve the Keystone pipeline right now, doesn’t want to bet future government money on clean energy technologies and is determined to regulate and tax less often.
And the GOP’s official platform shepherded to approval Tuesday in Tampa by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell declares it was wrong for the Obama administration to have elevated climate change to a national security threat.
Put simply, most of what Barack Obama likes the GOP opposes, and vice versa.
