On February 14, 2014, President Barack Obama arrived on Air Force One in Fresno, California, with Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein aboard. They helicoptered to a 30-minute community roundtable in Firebaugh, 45 miles to the west. A half-hour motorcade then moved northwest to a Los Banos field for a photo op and official televised statement.
Joined by Gov. Jerry Brown, the President linked California’s lack of rain to climate change and carbon pollution.
The Democratic entourage, ringed by Secret Service, posed in the fallow field for Associated Press and the television cameras. It had no clue how to solve California’s water problems. It could have been doing rain dances, for all the good it was doing.
The fact is, the four were doing rain dances for MSM — all of them — Obama, Boxer, Feinstein, and Brown. This was wildly expensive, echt Obama, media spectacle.
