The announcement had to be done by tele-conference. Because of all the "global warming" in the streets of Washington they couldn't do it in person. But of course Obama HAD to go ahead with it. Aint that rich?

News of the Day:

Obama Hits Lowest Approval Mark - February 8, 2010

Independent voters see Pres. Obama in a negative light by a nearly 2-1 margin, according to a new Marist College survey, while almost half of voters say he has failed to meet their expectations.

The poll, conducted Feb. 1-3, showed just 44% of registered voters approving of Obama’s job as president. 47% disapprove. But among indie voters, Obama’s approval rating sits at a terrible 29%, while his disapproval rating is at 57%.

Obama’s 44% job approval rating is the lowest he has scored in any non-internet poll since moving into the WH, according to a review of data compiled by Pollster.com.

And while GOPers strive to avoid attacking Obama personally, for fear of offending voters who see him in a favorable light personally, even that aura of invincibility is wearing off. Independent voters view Obama negatively, too, by a 39% favorable to 52% unfavorable margin. All registered voters still see Obama favorably by a 50%-44% margin, but that’s down 5 points in just 2 months.

Voters are disappointed in what they got with Obama’s first year. The poll shows 47% believe Obama has failed to meet their expectations — including a quarter of Dems, 65% of GOPers and 53% of indie voters — while just 42% say he has met their expectations. 38% say Obama’s policies are moving the country in the wrong direction, while 37% say they’re making the country better.

If this weren't the truth it would make a good Mel Brooks sketch. Why isn't the MSM calling the kenyan out on this?

I would not be surprised if Obama decided to use this weather event to start his private army up, can’t waste a crisis Obama to the rescue.

It’s what happens to you when you lie, and everyone knows it.

Did anyone see Miracle, the 80’s movie with Kurt Russell where the Russian hockey team loses in the Olympics to the Americans?

It’s sort of approppriate - obama is the new Carter, and the Winter Olympics are here.

At the end of the game, the Russian coach is standing and yelling, and the American Herb Brooks, turns toward his assistant and cries, in astonishment, “He doesn’t know what to do!” - when it is so clear everyone else knows. And it is because the coach is out of his depth.

zer0 said over and over that he wanted to restore “science” to its rightful place.

Clearly he means that science’s rightful place is a pool of corruption in blind subservience to his marxist agenda.

On Fox & Friends this morning they said this agency had been in the works for a couple of years, as if Bush started the idea. Does anyone know?

By the way, guys, I'd appreciate it if some good Freepers could join me in prayer today for my Mom. She's got a resilient case of C diff, and the Vanco is not working. We want to change hospitals, maybe try a different doctor, but with the huge snowstorm coming up north we are afraid to take her from her usual one, who at least we know cares. And my Dad is in ICU this am. So we could really use some prayer.

I know it's off the subject, but I hate to post vanities. Thanks so much. It's really a deadly situation - we can't make any mistakes.

There’s too much money at stake for the powers behind the throne to allow zero to stop pimping this. It’s just another way to get more money out of our hands into theirs.

New U.S. climate service aims to help business adapt
Tue Feb 9, 2010 2:07am IST

By Deborah Zabarenko, Environment Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A proposed new U.S. government climate information service is meant to help businesses adapt to the impact of climate change and spur new technologies to cope with it, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on Monday.

“Even with our best efforts, we know that some degree of climate change is inevitable and American citizens and businesses, and American governments ... must be able to rise to environmental and economic challenges that lie ahead,” Locke told reporters in announcing the move.

He said new private industries could develop from information generated by the new service, just as industries based on data from the National Weather Service and U.S. Census Bureau have done.

In addition to dealing with climate change, Locke said, “In the process, we’ll discover new technologies, build new businesses and create new jobs.”

The new service — its website is www.climate.gov — means a reorganization at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which is part of the Commerce Department and includes the National Weather Service.

NOAA already offers data to businesses ranging from agriculture and energy to fisheries and transportation, as well as to the billion-dollar weather-forecasting industry, Locke said. But information about climate change is scattered across the agency.

Locke said concentrating NOAA’s expertise and information on climate change in one place would help these industries and others including renewable energy like wind power, infrastructure and architecture planning and disease prevention and control.

Actually, it’s scary. The man is out of touch with reality, yet he’s the chief executive of our country. I’d really like some evidence that he’s aware of what’s going on in the World, rather than what just pleases his liberal friends.

I hardly know where to begin - except to try to keep my blood pressure down. Every week there are more, and more, and more suckers hanging off our society’s producers, and they are being appointed by and for the convenience of the executive branch.

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone running for an office in the federal government, especially a prospective candidate for president. Anyone saying something like “if I were to be president, the bureaucracies created by the current president would be vaporized the first day of my administration,” would have my support.

I have a feeling I’m not alone in this. Why don’t I hear anyone in public office talking this way. Or are all the candidates of the loyal opposition secretly salivating over the prospect of controlling all those new czar agencies.

I want the suckers GONE, and I want SOMEONE to, at the very least, say that’s a good idea!

Okay, deep breaths now, calming down...
