Obama has often times claimed that all he needs to run this country is his pen and phone in an effort to go around that pesky Congress. This time however, the arrogant Commander-in-Chief has taken to mocking Congress saying, that they pretend like they can’t read in order to pursue their agenda and insinuating their uselessness.
The words came amongst a speech Obama was giving on carbon pollution at the League of Conservation Voters. According to Obama, there is so much science and statistical data proving that carbon pollution is running rampant and out of control yet right leaning politicians are blind to these facts.
“But generally they don’t just say, ‘No, I don’t believe anything that scientists say,’” he said. “Except – where? In Congress! In Congress, folks will tell you climate change is a hoax or a fad – or a plot. It’s a liberal plot!”
“They say, ‘Hey, I’m not a scientist,’” he continued. “Which really translates into, ‘I accept that man-made climate change is real, but if I say so out loud I’ll be run out of town by a bunch of fringe elements that think science — climate science is a liberal plot, so I’m going to just pretend like, I don’t know, I can’t read.’”
Maybe if Congress wasn’t so willing to bend over for Obama he’d be a little more hesitant before mocking them. What are your thoughts on this?
