Obama: Make climate change a must for your vote
Associated Press ^ | Jun 29, 2013 6:07 AM EDT | Josh Lederman

President Barack Obama is urging Americans to make climate change a political litmus test, asking them to declare they won’t vote for any politicians who don’t protect future generations from environmental devastation.

Obama says Americans are already paying the price for climate change, including in lost lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. He says America will be judged as a people and a nation by how it responds.

“If you agree with me, I’ll need you to act,” Obama says, appealing to Americans to spread the word to their family, friends and classmates. “Remind everyone who represents you, at every level of government, that there is no contradiction between a sound environment and a strong economy—and that sheltering future generations against the ravages of climate change is a prerequisite for your vote.” …

POTUS is preaching to the graveyard again, I see. Most unwavering of Dem voters, those who have passed on.

Americans: make ridding this nation of the evil Obama regime a top priority. Your life depends on it.

He doesn’t seem to be reading the polls. Americans just don’t believe this garbage any more, and it’s not their highest priority. It’s not even their lowest priority. It’s off the radar.

This kind of focus on his part demonstrates that ideology trumps all.

“He doesn’t seem to be reading the polls.”

No, he’s reacting to the polls. Jobs and prosperity are not in the future under his commissars, so he has to throw out red herrings (like “war on women” - which apparently worked well twice). Expect more of the same leading up to elections in the future; Dems can’t run on a strong economy or job market.

Not at all; see # 6. Do you think Obama really believes in anything related to the environment? He has one goal: money for black people at the expense of whites. His “gay marriage” position demonstrated how little ideology he has outside of that limited focus.

Obama is doing what he does best: promoting a non-existent threat, setting people at each others' throats, and hoping to profit from the conflict.

In truth, there's but one pressing domestic threat to America's survival as a free nation, and It's him.

Nothing you said in #6 makes sense. Throwing “climate change” into the mix once more has nothing to do with reading and/or reacting to the polls.

They will cloud elections with irrelevant or outright dishonest fluff (”war on women” and the like) because they will never deliver on what Americans repeatedly indicate they want via polls - jobs and opportunity. They have no intention of focusing on those things, but rather on government employment (taking over whole sectors of the economy) and wealth re-distribution. As their focus is not in line with what Americans want, they throw “climate change” and “social justice” out there in the hopes of drawing ignorant and/or idealistic voters - just enough to win an election.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.

3. The earth is a rock.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

Near as I can tell, carbon credits and drum circles.

Obama’s Plan for Climate Change has been the topic on C-Span Washington Journal all morning. It is still going on with two guests at this time.

My political litmus test: if hussein, Pelosi, or Reid in any way favor a candidate, I'm voting for the other guy/gal.

I know, I KNOW whatever hussein, Reid, or Pelosi want is bad for America. The easy default position is whatever is exactly the opposite of what they want.

svcw ~:” I will make climate change a test in 2014,anyone who supports this chit will not get my vote “

When Obama was a candidate, he promised ‘climate change’
His promise : “Hope and Change”
His result : “Beans and Franks “
and the political climate now has significantly changed into intimidation, ‘thuggery’, bullying, and the “Chicago way “.

That is why he wants a single issue to predominate : he has a record of no meaningful successes.
Ever wonder why he is so consistantly campaigning ?
It’s because he has no leadership skills; he is still an empty suit !
