Even the weather refuses to cooperate with Obama.

So who can blame the GOP for spurning him?

That’s how much he’s been abandoned by the fates.

And we pay the price for his gamble on his destiny, his legacy, his lie.

It’s ironic that at a time when Wall Street has been adjusting expectations for the economy because of moderately cold weather—like THAT’s never happened before-- Obama is banging the drum for more draconian cuts to our great American-supplied fossil fuels.

He cites global warming as the culprit.

“President Obama is putting global warming in the spotlight this week, using his power to highlight a federal report warning that climate change is already hitting home and hitting hard,” wrote the National Journal in the beginning of May. “The move draws cheers from the left, jeers from the right, and restarts a public debate over the validity of climate science—despite the fact that the connection between greenhouse gases and global warming is settled science for the vast majority of climatologists and peer-reviewed climate studies.”

Well, not really.

A catalog of studies in a report published by Science & Education, shows that a little more than one quarter of 1% of all studies conclude that global warming is man-made, says the Daily Caller.

“In fact, [the report] provides the clearest available statistical evidence that there is scarcely any explicit support among scientists for the consensus that the IPCC, politicians, bureaucrats, academics and the media have so long and so falsely proclaimed,” says statistician Dr. William Briggs in a press release accompanying the report. “That was not the outcome [they] had hoped for, and it was not the outcome he had stated in his paper, but it was the outcome he had really found.”

The irony goes further, as the cry “infrastructure, infrastructure” rings from liberal voices, on cue from the president, as an alternative to common sense fiscal policies which would put real Americans to work.

Let’s start with Keystone, which by the way, will, someday I’m sure, cost taxpayers nothing, which is a dirty concept to Democrats.

As opposed to now, when it’s delay is costing taxpayers plenty.
