With Copenhagen looming, Obama completely ignores global warming yet again in his weekly address to the American people
[He's now given the issue only one tiny mention in his last thirteen weekly addresses combined]
 Still, there are some in Washington today who seem determined to play the same old partisan politics, working to score political points, even if it means burdening this country with an unsustainable status quo.
...Now is the time to rise above the politics of the moment. Now is the time to come together as Americans...
30% Say Obama Is A Bipartisan President - Rasmussen Reports™
Just 30% of U.S. voters now think President Obama is governing in a bipartisan fashion, down 12 points from late January and the lowest such finding of his presidency.
[Does Obama think that he's speaking only to a CO2-hysteric international audience here?]
[In case you missed it: In his statement on the Nobel Prize, the most powerful man in the world dons his sandwich board and claims that carbon dioxide might "empty cities"]: In a statement given in the Rose Garden, President Obama acknowledged the challenges ahead to enact climate change legislation. “We cannot accept the growing threat posed by climate change, which could forever damage the world that we pass on to our children -- sowing conflict and famine; destroying coastlines and emptying cities,” he said. “And that's why all nations must now accept their share of responsibility for transforming the way that we use energy.”
[After Obama's insane statement above, the Washington Post had this to say]
All told, Barack Obama spoke for six minutes Friday. He said little concrete, nothing controversial, nothing contentious. And yet, once he walked back into his house, contention dominated the day.
