The guy is such an opportunistic moron.
When the financial crisis hit, he tried to tell us that we needed his goofy health care plan, or we would never have a stable economy again.
When the stimulus plan was being put together, he told us we needed to send all our money to people who supported him in the last election.
When the car companies went south, he used the situation to give control to his political buddies, the unions.
Now, he is having trouble getting the oil spill plugged, so it is time to pass his nonsensical climate change bill, which would drastically increase the price of energy and cause the economy to go further into recession:
President Obama tried Wednesday to channel public outrage about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill into support for a climate-change bill, seeking to redefine an issue that threatens to tarnish his presidency.
In a speech at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University, Obama made one of his strongest pitches for comprehensive climate legislation, arguing that the case for breaking the nation’s addiction to fossil fuels has been made clearer by the environmental catastrophe in the gulf.
The president vowed to gather votes for the climate bill in the “coming months” and repeated his intention to roll back billions of dollars in tax breaks for big oil companies, to tap natural gas reserves as an alternative to coal, and to increase reliance on nuclear power — although energy experts said that such a program would leave the country just as dependent on offshore oil.
He’s a moron. He thinks he is being clever, that he is being strategic.
He’s not clever.
