Obama Gets Burned with Crack about Texas Wildfires
While Obama attempted to paint a potential rival, Perry, as a science-denying yokel from the Texas hill country, it turns out it was the smooth-talking, Harvard-educated president who had blown his science and committed what should be considered a major gaffe. To suggest global warming caused the Texas drought which in turn caused the wildfires is about as sensible as Pat Robertson claiming Hurricane Katrina was God's punishment for America's abortion policy.
That Obama has a somewhat casual regard for the truth has been noted by enemies and friends alike. But he undercuts his own stance as leading the party of science when he says things like he did last weekend.
