How is that stupid? That sounds like a fairly accurate assessment. Read it again and think about it.

BEN-VENISTE: ...And I ask you whether you recall the title of that PDB?

RICE: I believe the title was, "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States".

yeah, the Bush bunch sure have some classics but, since they haven't been the only Republicans in office in my life ... here are some doozies from their predecessor, Reagan
given both Chernobyl and Fukushima ... i wonder who gave Reagan this idea? ...

"All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk."

------------------

and, when i really think about it, times haven't changed much at all ...

Reagan --> "We are trying to get unemployment to go up, and I think we're going to succeed."

What happened to the legendary speeches of presidents of old? Why do we get stuck with goof balls saying stuff like "read my lips no new taxes"

The U.S. has 71,862 tons of the waste, according to state-by-state numbers obtained by The Associated Press. But the nation has no place to permanently store the material, which stays dangerous for tens of thousands of years.

You would need to qualify what were the sources of the waste. Please do. There are plenty of sources of waste, not just plants.

Only the real Sarah Palin never said that. It was from SNL, a spoof on what Sarah really said was that Russia is neighbors with Alaska and that you can see part of Russia from some places in Alaska.


The clip on Tuesday which showed Walters bringing up this issue could have been more direct in stating clearly to viewers that the real Palin never stated that “I can see Russia from my house,” or as Walters misquoted the SNL line, “I can see Russia from my backyard.” There is evidence that many voters attribute the SNL line to the real Palin, so it would have been appropriate for the former 20/20 anchor to have said something along the lines of, “Because of the infamous SNL skit, there is a misconception that you once claimed that you had foreign policy experience because could see Russia from your house."

But the liberals hated Sarah so much they were willing to propagate a falsehood.

the story linked indicates 30 states worth of nuclear power plant waste.
either way you look at it ... that's still one B I G azzzz desk
that it would have to be "stored under" per Reagan.

from the story titled ... US's growing nuclear waste problem

The U.S. nuclear industry says the waste is being stored safely at power-plant sites, though it has long pushed for a long-term storage facility. Meanwhile, the industry's collective pile of waste is growing by about 2,200 tons a year, experts say some of the pools in the United States contain four times the amount of spent fuel that they were designed to handle.
for more detail, read the link provided, twice.

Hey Guys, try and stay on topic please. If you need to discuss this start a thread. It would be a good read I am sure. Just not here. This thread is for political comedy. Thanks
