Manchin Can’t Outrun Raese from Obama
by

At least not on the global warming/cap-and-trade issue. From the Politics Daily coverage of last night’s West Virginia Senate debate:

(Democrat Joe) Manchin repeatedly rapped the president for his energy reform legislation, known as cap and trade, that would charge carbon emitters, especially coal-fired power plants, for the carbon they release into the atmosphere. “It would be the ruin not only of this state but of the entire economy,” Manchin said. “We need to mine every lump of coal we can. … That’s how we’re going to have a secure and a free nation.”

(Republican John) Raese agreed with Manchin on the potential dangers of the legislation for the state, but took his argument one step further by calling global warming “a myth,” and adding that the idea that man causes global warming is also a myth. “I don’t believe in that myth,” Raese said.

Meanwhile the Left has been keeping a list, and I don’t see either of these names on it.
