President turns laser-like focus back to climate change, hypes Tuesday speech

It might not seem like much, but this afternoon’s tweet from the official White House account came with a little something extra: the president’s initials. The biggest news to us is that the president might have at last given up on tweeting from the @barackobama account, which belongs to the “nonpolitical” and wholly independent nonprofit Organizing for Action. Perhaps the exposure of the IRS’ crackdown on conservative groups seeking nonprofit status has the president and OFA being a little more careful about public displays of coordination. A retweet will have to settle in this case.

But that’s our concern, not the president’s. He’s choosing to turn his laser-like focus back to climate change, and the White House has released what is essentially a commercial for his speech Tuesday at Georgetown University. It’s a strange move, considering the Senate could certainly use some help forcing immigration reform through next week, but who knows: at least one senator has attempted to inject climate change hysteria into the immigration debate.

Americans don’t seem to be thrilled with the administration’s pivot back to global warming, but at least Obama’s thinking of the children, right?

  • Cynical Mike

    Obama hasn’t read in the paper yet that global warming/climate change/whatever today’s buzz words are is not quite the overwhelming consensus once advertised. The entire scam is intended to (a) exert more and more control over our lives (and livelihoods) and (b) a means for non-productive, politically-connected thieves to make a fortune dealing in a commodity that doesn’t exist in reality, doesn’t need to be produced, and can be endlessly manipulated – aka “carbon credits”.

    How can anyone take BHO’s concerns about “healing the planet” seriously when he won’t even acknowledge all the sicknesses in D.C. that need healing?

    • Suzyqpie

      Good point nc, has anyone ever heard Pres 0bama address the debris field in WDC, Chicago (RIP), Detroit (RIP)? Pres 0bama does no heavy lifting. Here’s my idea, Pres & Mrs 0bama stand in front of their trophy wall of college degrees and explain how important sequencing life’s events is to life’s success. Graduate high school, graduate college, have no children while doing so, get a job, earn money, meet someone, have no kids until you marry them (white dress, tux, flowers, pictures matter). Wow success, no poverty for women and children!

        This is exactly what Rick Santorum advocated and he was ridiculed by both the left and the right. Our problems, unfortunately, go way deeper than just who’s at the top.

        But the President could use the bully pulpit to begin the healing process. Too bad our current Pres is not interested.

          Liberals FEAR conservatives. They’re goal is to destroy all of them, using the IRS, Media, other progressives, fake scandals, made up incidents, outright lies and accusations to humiliate; anyone or anything to accomplish that goal.

    • Elaine

      I can’t believe he is just IGNORING all the scandals and moving on with the Progressive agenda, like nothing happened? When will he have a damn press conference and answer some questions? I’m guessing NEVER?

  • AlmaAlma

    Global Warming – that other trick in the hat in the efforts to control the people. That great Trojan Horse Watermelon that is Green on the outside and Red on the inside. Control land, control food, control energy i.e. oppress and control people

    • Elaine

      Everyone should have realized this was all a SCAM when the only CHANGE going on was switching gears from “Global warming” to Climate change.” HOAX. There’s a difference between clean air and water and this BS!

  • yourmamatoo

    As usual, he is clueless.
    And as usual, he is not addressing his failures on the economy.
    His hc debacle, and a host of other things that actually need addressing.
    And once again, he shows he is in, way over his head.

  • Squirrel!

    We owed it to our children not to re-elect BOzo the Tyrant. Unfortunately, what’s done is done, so now we owe it to our children to do what we can in 2014 & curb the agenda. We owe it to our children to focus on REAL issues, not made up issues. As a side note, stop USING the children, BOzo. It isn’t working.

  • Suzyqpie

    The “kids” again. The ubitquious kids are the human shields that democrats use to grow governemnt. Everything is for thee children. I produced them, I provided for them,. you produce them you provide for them.

  • NixTyranny

    Those darned oceans still rising? Maybe our “Have you plugged the hole yet, Daddy?” President shouldn’t have plugged the hole.

  • MyrmidoNOT

    Pivot to jobs. (Please?) 😉

    • CDUB

      Seems like we are focused on anything but jobs or the high amount on food stamps, disability, free stuff and gun control, immigration/amenensty and global warming crap is on the agenda.


      • MyrmidoNOT

        Yup. My point (exactly). Look…another squirrel! 😉

    • jebjr

      You can rest assured that whatever Obama advocates with regards to global warming, will in fact end up costing us more jobs.

      • MyrmidoNOT

        In a laser-like fashion… 😉

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      Considering the disaster the President creates of anything he touches, maybe we don’t want him focused on jobs.

      • MyrmidoNOT

        Prolly true. My sniping comment was a direct ‘takeoff’ of the headline.

        But I have to admit…though: “teh oone” isn’t doing a d@mned thing good about ‘creating jobs; but is doing a fine job at “getting rid of ’em”…re: bad economy, too many part-timers, and mis-incentives (disincentives?) on “ALL” the wrong ‘metrics’.

        So even the successes …are actually failures… ;-(

        So, mockingly pivot to jobs… 😉

  • MJ Pauls

    All those flaming trousers in Washington have to be adding *something* to the environment…

    • MyrmidoNOT


      It isn’t “wind” under our wings,
      it must be “wind” in their pants… 😉

  • Mr. Saturn

    The reason why they don’t care about changing things in government is because that would require changing their behavior. Changing our behavior though is much more palatable.

  • Brett Weir

    Progressive thinking: “The kids we are currently giving a sub-par education will never be smart enough to fix this fake problem in the future.” It is now or never!!!

      Shoot, you beat me to it.

  • Finrod Felagund

    So how many more years of no warming do we have to have before liberals give up on this? We’re pushing 15 years and counting now. 72 climate models and every single one of them overestimated the current global temperature.

    • Richard Jefferies

      They are just waiting for enough cooling to start up the new ice age rhetoric from the 70s.

  • SturJen

    Every time some Lib throws down the children card, (it’s the one right next to their race card) I think of that lady from the Simpsons that shouts, “Won’t someone think of the children!” each time a manufactured crisis comes about. Is that Rev. Lovejoy’s wife that does that?

  • Noah

    climate change?!
    did he fly all the way around the world and now has the gall to give a speech on battling climate change?!

  • DrSamHerman

    Distract, deflect and deter from all of the scandals, Odimbulb. They are not forgotten, despite what you and your media sockpuppets say.

  • Chip

    Hitler ran around screaming that everything was for the “children” too……
