'Nice Weather' Making Obama a 'Little Nervous'

At a posh fundraiser in Atlanta, where 40 guests each paid $35,800 to attend, President Obama talked about . . . the weather. As today's White House pool reporter notes:

Potus talked about how he had been in Chicago and Atlanta and how the weather was so warm. “It gets you a little nervous about what is happening to global temperatures. When it is 75 degrees in Chicago in the beginning of March, you start thinking. On the other hand, I really have enjoyed nice weather.”

The president was presumably referring to global warming.

This fundraiser was at the home of Tyler Perry. Here's how the pooler describes the home:

"[It's] a vast French –chateau style mansion reached by a steep winding road deep into the woods away from the road in a well heeled suburb of Atlanta. A fountain sits in the courtyard lit up by white lights under the water.

"The three story home complete with wooden shutters, that would have looked at home in the Loire Valley, was reached by a wide marble staircase leading up to the front door, inside which was a large crystal chandelier. The pool spotted a cozy looking library with antique volumes on the shelves as we were taken up two flights of stairs into a games room area, complete with a pub-style bar, pool table, antique chess set and large antique telescope."

Upon entering the room, the president said, “Usually we have better accommodation for events but we decided to slum it here.”

Sounds like a death trap when it rains.

Congrats to those who spent $35k, to have Hussein insult their intelligence.

Europe had another record cold winter this year...and we had a warm one.

Only an idiot would believe one warm summer
(on one continent) is a harbinger of global calamity.

Ergo, he thinks he is dealing with a bunch of rich idiots.

...Barry and I agree on something!

“Obama talked about . . . the weather”

And how many rounds of golf he could get in while he pretends to work on jobs for Americans?

“[M]y good friend Oprah,” the president reportedly said, ... and she has continued to be not just a friend but somebody who Michelle and I seek out. What she has done for so many people not just in America but around the world is extraordinary, so I just want to thank you. Is this thing on? Ya know, the only thing that would have made this trip any better is a nice steam and some man-love, but, oh well.”

And what were his comments on the record early snow storm last October, hmmm? For these believers, there is no error because it is belief in man-made climate change that only big, bigger and absolute government can fix. As lawyers like Obama are taught, when the facts favor you, argue the facts, when they don’t, argue emotion and belief!

LOL! I’m reminded of those poor Marines, carrying Reagan’s casket into the Capitol up those worn, slippery marble steps.

Total and complete BS.

In Europe and the Ukraine, 400+ have frozen-to-death in sub-zero temps.

and

It’s cyclical, as it’s been for millions of years.

Ya....warmest in Denver since 1877.

Except....that’s not much of a trend line.

What made it so warm in 1877?
Why did it take 135 years to get back to that level?

“warming” is a “process”.
A new 135 high is an “event”.
The gap is evidence of an EVENT, NOT a PROCESS!

Guess he is too stupid to check records temps because here we haven’t broke any records yet but are missing them by a degree or two that were set back in the 1930’s and 1940’s.....

If the trend continues, it will be 300 degrees in 5 years!

It's the jet stream, Obama, you stupid ass.

'Nice Weather' Making Obama a 'Little Nervous'

Quite the contrary. This mild winter means less heating fuel used for homes. If it was a normal cold winter people would have to fuel up an additional time this heating season at about $700/tankfull of oil.
That, along with the price at the gas pump, would further alienate them from Obama. He caught a break this winter. - tom

When it is 75 degrees in Chicago in the beginning of March, you start thinking..

So he only thinks:
When he’s in Chicago,
only at the beginning of March,
and only when it’s 75 degrees?
Okay - I understand now!
