Morgantown, W VA. Blame Obama? His administration supports what mounting evidence says is likely to become a dead end for an international disaster. (How are those million gallons of liquid going to be disposed? In whose backyard? Or water supply?) The whispers say, it's been around since 1947; it drives demand for steel, it's a profitable product with rising demand; but with great hidden, off budget costs. (Sound familiar? Think war.) It's made European cathedrals quaver like jelly. But Santorum says equivocation is “hurting” fracking! Gingrich took 28 video minutes to call the end of big oil tax breaks “an assault.” Romney thinks it's a gas to go after gas with gas, no “secret chemicals.” Finger pointing substitutes for policy (a Republican pillar: don't explain, blame and slime!); not in ignorance, but to appeal to preconceived notions. That list of ideas/actions despite evidence of falsehood and failure, everybody else knows is true. Reply, we'll deprogram you.
