Speaking in Miami Thursday on behalf of Hillary Clinton, President Obama took a shot at a scrappy young politician from the area named Marco Rubio, who’s openly confessed that he’s not a climate scientist — certainly not one in the league of Clinton or Obama or Al Gore or even Bill Nye, the science guy whose published research seemingly consists of tweeted pictures of the weather on his TV.

“How can you deny what is right in front of you?” Obama asked. No, it wasn’t a rare moment of introspection, but it should have been.

Just for the record, he made his jab at Rubio during the same speech in which he passed off responsibility for rising insurance premiums, saying, “I had nothing to do with that.” But by all means, call it Obamacare, ’cause his name is Obama and he cares.

So, how does he do it? Hillary’s “I don’t recall” is getting stale and she could use some tips.
