If the president of the United States wanted to set America back, he would promote and implement the big plans Obama announced yesterday in his so-called climate-change speech (White House text at the link). The climate is changing, alright. Liberalism is killing us.
Picking up one thread of the speech in a quote thoughtfully airbrushed by the New York Times, Obama’s science advisor disclosed one of the speech’s deep thoughts: it’s time for “a war on coal,” Finally! A war Obama can put his heart into.
I’m with Joe Manchin on this one. It’s not just a war on coal: “[I]t’s a war on jobs, it’s a war on America.” That’s a mainstream Democratic Senator — albeit one with the interests of West Virginia at heart — speaking. Now it can be said, I guess. To adapt Nixon’s saying regarding Keynesians: We are all West Virginians now.
In the video below, Charles Krauthammer declares Obama’s plans “nuts.” From the perspective of believing liberals, of course, it all makes perfect sense. It is entirely rational. One begins to deduce that the point of liberalism is to hurt ourselves and help our enemies.
