President Obama is scheduled to deliver a “climate change” address at Georgetown University today. Squirrel shout-out!


Ahead of the speech, the Weekly Standard shared this quote from Daniel P. Schrag, White House climate adviser:

The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.

Brilliant messaging!

So, a renewed effort in the War on Coal Jobs is the best “SQUIRREL!” the admin could come up with? Or does Obama just realize this may be his last chance to make energy rates “necessarily skyrocket” before scandals completely cripple his administration? Either way, pathetic.

Oh, and newsflash: Conservatives can push back against the War on Coal and keep up the pressure on amnesty, scandalpalooza and plenty more.


Possible upsides?
