I noted yesterday that (NMP) Obama was going to mention “climate change” during his UC Irvine commencement speech. I probably should have anticipated that he would go off the reservation and go hyper-partisan on the issue, attacking, denigrating, and insulting Skeptics. Because that’s what he constantly does, regardless of the issue. Basically, he’s an asshole (Donald Douglas has video, if you can take it)
(CNN) Describing lawmakers and pundits who deny manmade climate change as a “fairly serious threat to everybody’s future,” President Obama on Saturday called for less debate and more action in combating warming trends.
Delivering the address at University of California Irvine’s commencement, Obama underscored the view of some scientists that the effects of climate change are already being felt nationwide and said he was allocating new funds for communities recovering from natural disasters.
Says the man who took a cross-country fossil fueled trip, followed by a giant convoy of fossil fueled vehicles, speech, then back in the convoy, then off to Palm Springs, which uses a tremendous amount of water to keep the golf course in shape, a massive use of water that Warmists tell us is bad for climate change.
Speaking at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Obama compared the scientific problem of curbing climate change to that of putting a man on the moon. And while skeptics in the 1960s may have made a case against the mission, Obama said he couldn’t remember “saying the moon wasn’t there, or that it was made of cheese.”
Funny thing is, most of the moon landing skeptics were lefties. Regardless, ask yourself, “is it appropriate for the POTUS to insult a good chunk of the American population in this manner?” Warmists, if it was a Republican president making nasty remarks about you, what would you think?
(Daily Caller) “Since this is a very educated group, you already know the science [on climate change],” Obama told the crowd of nearly 8,000 graduates, gathered at Angel Stadium on Saturday.
“The 18 warmest years on record have all happened since you graduates were born,” said Obama, who cited fires in Western states, smaller snow packs in mountainous tourist areas, and flooding streets in cities like Miami to make his case about the fallout from climate change.
Yet, wildfire activity has been decreasing. Any reduced snow pack and flooding is entirely consistent with natural causation. Oh, and
That’s science. Obama simply gave the graduates the same type of speech, which included other talking points on other subjects, which he would give while on the campaign stump. This was not presidential in the least. This is why I refer to him as Not My President (NMP). He doesn’t represent me. He doesn’t give a damn about me as an American citizen. He constantly insults me and fellow conservatives and Skeptics in a personal manner
(Bloomberg) Republicans were more open to the idea “before the Tea Party decided it was a massive threat to freedom and liberty,” he said, referring to the small-government political movement.
So, a nasty shot at Tea Party members, who are American citizens. He also spent time mocking Republican members of Congress, because the best way to get people to work on your agenda is to denigrate them.
(NY Times) Mr. Obama’s remarks came during a four-day visit to the West Coast that has been shadowed by the crisis in Iraq. The White House said the president spoke by phone with his national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, on Friday evening and Saturday morning. Ms. Rice and other aides were meeting in Washington to develop military options for Mr. Obama.
Determined not to let the crisis paralyze his trip, Mr. Obama kept the focus firmly on climate change Saturday. This month he announced regulations that would cut carbon-dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
Yeah, why let dealing with a crisis and doing the Job Of President get in the way of attending several fundraisers, at least one of which was $32,500 a plate, insulting American citizens, and playing golf?
