If you thought that in a second term Barack Obama would focus like a laser beam on jobs and the economy, think again:
President Obama plans to make climate change his top priority for his second term. No, that's not from The Onion, a humor publication, but the left-leaning New Yorker. What planet does this president live on?
'Obama has an ambitious second-term agenda," wrote Ryan Lizza in this week's New Yorker. "The President has said that the most important policy he could address in his second term is climate change," supposedly to "improve the world."
So forget about the abysmal jobless numbers above 8% for over three years, or the $15 trillion deficit that threatens to turn the U.S. into Greece. No, amid those very real calamities, climate change is more important.
If this isn't a sign of a president out of touch with reality, what is? If climate change is Obama's "most important" policy issue, then neither the Tea-Party-led victories around fiscal discipline such as the Wisconsin vote, nor the West Virginia primary, here 40% of Democrats chose a jailbird to protest Obama's anti-coal agenda, made a dent on him.
Like a madman doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, it can only mean Obama intends to double-down on his green agenda if re-elected.
And it isn't as though he hasn't blown boku bucks on it up to now:

I wonder when the New Yorker went to press...before of after Rep Issa’s grilling of John Galvin ? :)
It’s a plea for donations folks. Another sign that the money’s drying up.
Wall Street’s gone for the other guy, mainstreet’s not going to give money to him, so where’s the harm in courting the green money?
