Bush tries to win back Nevada voters angry over nuclear dump

 

Nevada, a state George W. Bush won in the 2000 presidential election, is now a battleground state as some voters are angered over a decision to locate the nation's nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain. Bush rallied Republicans there today.

According to recent polls, the issue is a matter that stirs up such strong feelings that it is giving Sen. John Kerry some headway there. Bush has tried to paint Kerry as switching sides on the issue of whether to place a waste dump at Yucca Mt.

But though Kerry voted for some provisions to allow dumps in the state, he always voted against the simple measure of locating the nation's nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain. Republicans say the issue is Kerry's only advantage in Nevada.

Well, trains carrying nuclear waste routinely travel through my city, if that counts on a local level.

On the state level, we have 4 nuclear power plants in California and countless nuclear subs and aircraft carriers use out ports.

More importantly, we ought not to put it in my backyard because some tink tank at the federal level already decided that Nevada is the best place to store the nuclear waste. Best not to regress to a 2nd-rate dump ste.

Though there is a lot of room in Death Valley for this kind of thing.

Nothin like this will ever happen in California because of all the crazy ass environmentalists here.
