Side-splitting! A joke, indeed.

ThinkProgress took to Twittter to whine that the Sunday shows didn’t spend any time on President Obama’s “landmark” climate change speech. You know, the one in which he referred to anyone who disagrees with him as “Flat Earthers.” What a uniter!

Landmark!

Words. They are so hard.

Eww-snicker.

Heh. Now? Thanks for the giggles, ThinkProgress! Again.

    There’s “landmark”. As in very important, moving and of its time.

    There’s also “landmark”. As in the grand opening of a gas station or supermarket.

    Trying to spin” WTF! Are you out of your freakin’ mind??!!!” third world, dictatorial boilerplate lunacy into something “historic” is much more attuned to comedy than
    opinion making or news.

  • Stone Bryson

    And yet Think Progress would have screamed to the rafters if these programs would have taken even one second away from the deification of Wendy Davis to cover this ‘landmark’ speech.

    They should really consider taking ‘think’ out of their name.

    • Mary Lee

      Also… “progress.” That part’s inaccurate, too.

      • Stone Bryson

        Very true Mary, but in case any ‘progressives’ stopped by and read my comment I didn’t want to confuse them with multiple points. Thinking is hard for them, after all…

  • Blake Waymire

    ThinkProgress really does very little thinking and never actually progresses much, does it?

    • Tugger – not quite dead yet

      Yeah but they THINK they’re going to make PROGRESS some day.

  • irishgirl91

    It was landmark in that it told us absolutely that he planned to kill this nation and any chance we have of recovering after he leaves office. He officially turned out the lights and said Good night ‘Merica.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Hmmm, maybe that’s why Gub’mint News didn’t carry it.

    • $1692758

      Maybe he’s not planning on coming back….one can hope. But until the rest of the treasonous infested WH is vacated it would do little good. Since Valerie Jarrett who BTW thinks Eric Holder is doing a wonderful job and is the best AG ever is actually the president anyway she will also need to be going on a $100 million dollar one way vacation to make any difference.

  • Clete Torres

    I think they mistook the terms ‘landmark’ and ‘jump the shark.’

    • Andy from Beaverton

      I fear that Obama won’t officially jump the shark for two more years.

      • $1692758

        He may have jumped it last week with his coal mongering hate speech. The man never seems to run short of threats to take out jobs, he’s very good at job killing. I guess he does have a talent after all.

  • OLLPOH ~ America

    Progressively allowing the continuing brutal financial, moral bankruptcy is all he and his lemmings desire by looking the other way with arrogance and believe in love of idolization of the BLT god they swirl in their imaginary solution that he will be their answer…OGovt.

  • porgiefirefighter

    They promote oppressive and crippling policy based on junk science while arrogantly declaring what they consider a “landmark” . Ironically they call themselves Think Progress.

  • Texan357

    Some spans of 1 minute, 33 seconds are more equal than others.

    • http://www.freedomreconnection.com CO2 Producer

      They corrected the typo in the article. The Tonight Show spent one minute and two seconds on the speech heard ’round the comedy show monologues.

  • G.

    Future @ThinkProgress comments would be more apropos for TheOnion.com rather than the Twittersphere…

  • ObamaFail

    Obama is planning on damaging the coal industry, an action that will cause job loss and skyrocketed energy costs which the low wage earning American simply cannot afford. That’s not landmark. That’s just typical Obama. It’s typical of that idiot to come up with policies that do nothing more than harm Americans in some way and make the cost of living go up on the poor. If Obama decided to resign after admitting that he had no intention of helping America and his sudden burst of guilt over that fact led to him resigning, then we could call it a “landmark” speech.

      The following is from a 20102 article from Watchdog.org concerning the loss of jobs and secondary jobs due to the closing of coal mines. I live in Southern Ohio and this has made my monthly electric bill go from 30-35 a month to 88-94 dollars a month. (we heat with wood). It is so sad to see so many put out of their jobs along with their bills “naturally skyrocketing” to quote Dear Leaderfrombehind.

      “… Regulatory actions by President Barack Obama and
      his appointees and followers were cited as the entire reason. “Mr. Obama
      has already destroyed 83,000 megawatts of coal-fired electricity
      generation in America,” said Mr. Michael T. W. Carey, Vice President of Government Affairs for Murray Energy. “Electric prices in the recent PJM Interconnection monthly auction were bid up 800 percent (8 times) for 2015-2016 because of this,” he added.

      “At its peak, OhioAmerican Energy Inc. employed 239 local people in high-paying, well-benefited jobs,” said Mr. Stanley T. Piasecki,
      General Manager and Superintendent. “University studies show that our
      Mines can create up to eleven (11) secondary jobs in our communities,
      for store clerks, teachers, etc., to serve our direct employees. Thus,
      if one uses the eleven (11) to one (1) multiplier, the Obama
      Administration has destroyed 2,868 jobs in eastern Ohio with this forced
      Mine closure,” stated Mr. Piasecki.

      • $1692758

        Talk about destroying the middle class. Liberals have effectively eliminated any way for a high school graduate or less to earn his way into the middle class. With manufacturing and energy destroyed there are no other ways to enter the middle class easily. Not everyone is cut out to go to a liberal arts university or has the book smarts or money. Obama is clueless and has zero empathy for the hard working poor. Now they will all be on benefits and fearful slaves of the government that owns them. He has no alternate energy plan and the ones he flushed millions of dollars into have all without exception failed. A virtual money laundering exposé to funnel money to his supporters. Crickets from the media…

      That’s progress I can agree with!

  • Suzyqpie

    AlGores participation in global warming, hype a disaster then profit from the remedy. Pres 0bama’s autocue readings just aren’t what they used to be, not one of the major broadcasters even mentioned it. That would indicate their analysis of the interest level their audience has on the topic.

    Landmark? More like skid mark.

    • therantinggeek

      Depends on which “skid mark” you’re referring to… #justsayin

    the speech is the same as every other speech he has given as candidate/president so nothing to report…. I don’t see what the issue is

    Defending the indefensible has its limits. Think Progress hasn’t figure out when to quit. They are now in “beating a dead horse” territory.

    “Five major Sunday shows don’t spend a single second on Obama’s landmark climate speech”.

    @thinkprogress is absolutely right. Nary a word on “Ice Road Truckers”.

  • Ronald Green

    In the 70’s & 80’s the liberal left was screaming “New Ice Age”. When that didn’t happen and the sun’s cycle was reaching it’s peak, the “New Ice Age” theory was called junk science. Then the new buzz words became “Global Warming”. When that didn’t pan out, it became a “misnomer” and junk science. Now it’s “Climate Change”, which is pretty good because the climate is always changing. Hard to disprove that. Wonder what it’ll be when, as the sun’s cycle continues to wind down, and things change again? To those wondering why I posted this, read RMFitz’s comments and everyone’s refutations of his silliness.
