The POLITICO‘s Glenn Thrush filed a report after The One gave his speech at Copenhagen. Ignore the original transcript of the speech before Obama gave it. The One’s tone while giving the speech was filled with much more anger than what you might have seen in the transcript that was provided beforehand. Even Thrush noted it, mentioning that Obama was “visibly angry.” But as you watch the speech, tell me if you see the same things I saw; a petulant child whining that he didn’t get his pony. His berating of everyone, especially China (incredible in and of itself considering how much they control the purse strings of the federal government, thanks in large part to The One himself) and India, was a fitting end to a disaster of a conference. Watch it all to get the full effect:
I’ve said it before, but the only examples of leadership that Obama has ever been personally engaged with before becoming a U.S. Senator from Illinois was that of corrupt Illinois Governors and Chicago Mayor Richard M. “Shortshanks”* Daley, who makes it a point to rip those who go against the Mayor’s policies. I don’t know what The One was thinking, but he should have known that acting like Daley was going to accomplish nothing; plus, venting is not usually proper in the midst of an international entourage. If accomplishing nothing was Obama’s goal, then it worked; for all I know, the conference wasn’t going anywhere anyway, with disagreements all throughout the proceedings. Somehow, though, getting nothing done isn’t what I think he was going for.
The world wanted The One to swoop in and save the day. And yet, he got nothing out of it. Except maybe some more derision from those who are America’s enemies (and even some benefactors; hello, China?).
The silver lining to all this, and there is one, is that at least the United States, just as with Kyoto, isn’t going to be held to some stupid international agreement that further erodes our freedoms. We get enough of that now with the Democrat oafs running Congress and the White House.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Donald Trump gave his victory speech after his big win in Indiana tonight, and it was actually fairly coherent up until the end, where he mentioned the War on Christmas, among other thing. It was actually a very leader-ly speech, in which he gave thanks, hit his high points, acknowledged Ted Cruz’s announcement from earlier tonight, and moved on. | Read More »
With the chairman of the Republican Party, Reince Priebus, swearing eternal loyalty before ZOD to ZOD (in the words of Jay Cost, I feel about the Republican Party the way Garrison felt about the Constitution. It is lost, and I will no longer have any part of it.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES So I’m getting a lot of emails from people – some friendly, some hostile – asking “what’s next” for the #NeverTrump movement. Quite frankly, I’m puzzled at the question. I mean, the entire meaning of the phrase was intended to convey that we would never vote for Trump, at any time, for any reason. It’s rather unambiguous, the word | Read More »
