Clinton Links GOP Policies to More Storms

Associated Press Writer


As Tropical Storm Alberto threatened to strengthen into the ninth hurricane in 22 months to affect Florida, former President Clinton predicted Monday that Republican environmental policies will lead to more severe storms.

"It is now generally recognized that while Al Gore and I were ridiculed, we were right about global warming," Clinton said at a fundraiser for the Florida Democratic Party. "It's a serious problem. It's going to lead to more hurricanes."

Gore's documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," chronicles the former vice president's efforts to educate the public about global warming. It's in limited release around the country.

In his critique of the GOP, Clinton also touched on the war in Iraq, the rising federal deficit and high health care costs. The crowd of about 500 greeted him with loud applause and shouts of "We love you, Bill!" and "Four more years!"

Jeff Sadosky, spokesman for the state Republican Party, decried Clinton's rhetoric. "Bill Clinton's class warfare and race-baiting message gets us no closer to solutions for the issues he brings up," he said.

Sadosky referred in part to Clinton's comments earlier this month in Arizona. At that event, Clinton characterized Republican Party leaders as right-wing, white Southerners.

This is a lie pure and siimple. Right after Katrina people in the MSM started this crap and the meterologists that were on TV all said global warming had nothing to do with it. Think Business Cycles and then think Hurricane Cycles.

Golly, even Bill Jeff is juming on Algore's global-warming-will-put-me-in-the-whitehouse bandwagon.

Wonder what Hillary thinks of that... :evil:

We need to build some pyramids with sacrificial alters on top. Sacrafice of children always appeased the gods of nature for the punishment of insulting the gods in the past. Right?
