McCain: ANWR Is Like Grand Canyon, Everglades

Wednesday, January 16, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Jim Geraghty recounts a blogger conference call with Senator McCain today which includes this head-shaker:

As far as ANWR is concerned, I don’t want to drill in the Grand Canyon, and I don’t want to drill in the Everglades. This is one of the most pristine and beautiful parts of the world.

So every Republican who supports exploration in ANWR is the same as a despoiler of the Everglades and the Grand Canyon? Now you know why so many Republicans refuse to support the McCain candidacy. It isn’t enough for the Arizona maverick to be an environmentalist, he has to condemn all Republicans, Independents and Democrats who disagree with him on the need to explore ANWR as enemies of the most beautiful places in America.
