Yesterday, the lead front page story in the Washington Times addressed the G-8’s “climate”, or Kyoto II, discussions, with a couple of quotes from me, including:
“Europeans and Democrats suddenly find themselves rushing to lecture one another and the press that an administration is limited by what Congress is willing to do. Quite refreshing awareness, on the heels of a decade of ignoring unanimous Senate instruction to Clinton to not agree to Kyoto, because they needed a totem — Kyoto — in their anti-Bush struggle.”
As if in response and to defiantly reaffirm its in-the-tankedness, the New York Times dutifully struts forth today with an editorial, “A lesson on warming”, which opens:
President Obama had hoped to emerge from this week’s Group of 8 summit meeting in Italy with a tentative agreement uniting rich and developing nations in a common fight against global warming. Instead he got a lesson on how divided the world remains on the issue - and how hard he will have to work to pull off an agreement. [Emphasis added;]
Ah, yes. You may recall how for years the NYT narrative was full-blown George W. Bush standing in the world’s way, particularly that of the American Left who promoted this meme above all, gleefully followed by the continent’s sizable anti-American contingent and others seeking a distraction from their own woes, foibles and ineptitudes. ‘Twas Bush dat done it!
Today, no longer with Bush to blame, well, let’s just quietly say that the earnest Obama is finding the world in his way.
Sooo…in addition to “no time to debate!” because of your computer model projections just being so right and all of those observations and the skeptics who cite them so wrong and conspiring against you on instruction from Big Oil and, and…(pant)…you fellas also have the world against you. Maybe some of those Team McCain sources busy diagnosing Sarah Palin could spare their well-thumbed DSM so we could diagnose this.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
