トンプソン候補 目指すはレーガン流


For Thompson, Goal Is to Don Reagan Mantle
( New York Times )

Fred D. Thompson had one central strategic goal as he formally began his presidential campaign on Thursday: to win over conservatives who are disheartened at their current choice of Republican candidates by positioning himself as the ideological and stylistic heir of Ronald Reagan.

Mr. Thompson is certainly conservative, and has been throughout his public life ― particularly on the question of federalism, the size ofgovernment, tax cuts and his unwavering support for the war in Iraq.

ブッシュ大統領、温室効果ガス削減の目標を提案


Bush Proposes Goals on Greenhouse Gas Emissions
(New York Times)

President Bush, fending off international accusations that he was
ignoring climate change, proposed for the first time on Thursday to
set “a long-term global goal” for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, and he called on other high-polluting nations to join the United
States in negotiations aimed at reaching an agreement by the end of
next year.

If carried through, such an agreement would be the first in which the United States, the world’s biggest source of the emissions that
scientists say are warming the planet, has committed itself to a
specific target for cutting them.
