Obama Czar Rattner Decries 'Climate-Change Deniers'óBut Flies Big Private Jet

I hate to criticize a fellow pilot, but when one engages in such sky-high hypocrisy, well . . .

On Morning Joe today, former Obama car czar Steve Rattner, a very successful hedge fund manager, decried "climate-change denier[s]." This is the same Rattner who, at last report, owned a "15,000-square-foot mansion on Martha’s Vineyard, to which [he] flies regularly on a Dassault Falcon 2000 jet [see file photo] he pilots himself." Rattner wrung his hands over the fact that we're "putting millions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere every day." But just earlier this week, the New York Times ran a story entitled "Your Biggest Carbon Sin May Be Air Travel."

It is only us little people that are supposed to give up the technology that eases our lives for a reasonable price. We must sacrifice so that our BETTERS may have the freedom to use any all technology to travel to anywhere on the globe to warn us about using the same technology ourselves. Remember some Animals are more equal than others.

Our President took two round trips to Hawaii in ten days.

When he flies it isn’t one plane in the air either, but several.

Then think of all the pollution from the gunpowder he burns shooting skeet at Camp David.I bet his Golf cart runs off gas too.

It's like Ted Turner Jr (R-Charelston, SC), who is running for Tim Scott's vacant seat, said about his liberal daddy:

“He drives a Prius to the Challenger (one of Ted's big private jetliners).”

Steve Rattner, supporter of death panels, Wally Cox without a sense of humor, and a major hypocrite. But why be critical?

Climate Change is all about making the rich richer and the poor poorer. Just ask Al Gore. And no, they do not care what happens to the poor.

True statement, but not in the way you're implying. The fact is, these czars and cronies of Obama's don't give one whit about being "green." They only say that in order to help the shadow-government masters gain more and more control of the people. The object is to strangle the free market while taxing business and people more. The media is perfectly okay with that.
