Barry’s Warming Up to New Digs

Washington (PTI): US President Barack Obama has proposed a “truly global coalition”, including Asian giants India and China, to combat climate change and ensure collective energy security of the world.
Speaking by video to a climate conference in Los Angeles, Mr. Obama repeated his campaign vow to reduce climate-altering carbon dioxide emissions by 80 percent by 2050, and invest $150 billion in new energy-saving technologies.
“Now is the time to confront this challenge once and for all,” Mr. Obama said. “Delay is no longer an option. Denial is no longer an acceptable response.”
“I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem. He’s somebody I talk to on a regular basis. I’m already consulting with him in terms of these issues, but climate change is real. It is something we have to deal with now, not 10 years from now, not 20 years from now.”
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said. “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.
WASHINGTON — The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.
“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.” (Of course, he hasn’t lived in Hawaii for 30 years. I guess the past 24 Chicago winters didn’t “take”.)
I’ve grown accustomed to the audacity of hypocrisy on the left that preach from the gospel of Global Warming Junk Science Theology. I don’t care about it anymore. What I do care about is that the Oval Office in the White House is once again, being treated with disrespect.
Following the precedent of the last Demi-god to occupy that office, Bill Clinton, Barry Soetoro is setting up a fraternity clubhouse best-place-to-bring-a-date atmosphere in the Oval Office. Maybe he’ll enjoy his own Sig-ar.
Note to Barry: The White House is not your house. It’s the people’s house. It’s on good-faith loan to you for the next four years. That loan can be rescinded.
