Must be something in the elitist California air. Shades of 2008, when candidate Obama was speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, and mocked conservatives: "they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
Before heading for golf in Palm Spring and fundraisers with his elite wealthy liberal cabal, Obama spoke at a college commencement and basically called those who disagree with him idiots:
He lobbed a new grenade over the partisan wall.
In a commencement address given for graduates of the University of California at Irvine, Mr. Obama likened climate-change deniers in Congress to people who thought the moon was made of cheese and called them a "fairly serious threat to everybody’s future."
Now, he's essentially going to moon Congress while attempting to push through by executive action perhaps the most sweeping climate change regulations of his regime, because he knows there isn't the remotest chance Congress will do anything at all.
With his comments Saturday, however, Obama is doing more than blowing a raspberry a recalcitrant Congress.
He's poking fun at almost half of America.
Obama said some members of Congress duck the question of human-induced climate change, otherwise they'd "be run out of town by a radical fringe that thinks climate science is a liberal plot."
Let's put aside for a moment the fact that the overwhelming weight of scientific research and analysis backs Obama on climate change. [not so fast on that statement, since the climate hasnt warmed in over a decade] The fact is that 43 percent of Americans don't agree, and another 9 percent aren't sure, according to a new Bloomberg poll. This statement characterizes the belief of that 43 percent: "I think scientists manipulate their findings for political reasons."
Forty-three percent is a pretty big fringe.
By the measure of the recent Pew survey, hating, fearing, and stirring anger against your opponent also makes good political sense these days. Whether it is good for the nation is a different question.
The President is showing his true elitist leanings, he doesnt care about middle America, only his liberal Government schemes...
