Climate change may be very low on the list of issues that are important to most Americans, but to Sec. of State John Kerry (who served in Vietnam), it is “among the world’s biggest problems”, “as big a threat as terrorism, poverty, WMDs”, and ‘Perhaps The World’s Most Fearsome Weapon Of Mass Destruction.’
Lurch was in Indonesia Monday, warning the impoverished Indonesian citizens that climate change could threaten their “entire way of life” as he pushed for the world to do more to stop global warming.
On Monday night’s Special Report, the panel talked about the Regime’s latest Global Warming fear-mongering and the political implications of Obama’s economy crushing green policies.
Krauthammer disputed the idea that Climate Change is “settled science” and correctly called the ideology behind it, a matter of theology to the left. The panel agreed that the Regime’s big climate change push was a risky proposition for Democrats.
Dr. K. concluded, “killing coal is not going to help Democrats in Kentucky. So this is a losing proposition for the country, and Democrats.”
Powerline: JAKARTA JAPES:
For those who lack a rooting interest in the United States, American foreign policy has become a joke. We are fools who appear to lack the most elementary ability to distinguish friend from enemy. Functionally speaking, we’ve gone over to the other side — “the other side” being the side of our enemies. Those who wish us ill — both at home and abroad — have a friend in John Kerry, speaking yesterday in Jakarta.
The Year of Living Dangerously was set in Jakarta, was it not? That works too. From the detached point of view, however, we’re living comically in the Age of Obama.
Powerline: KERRY ON, DUDE:
I see Scott has already commented on this story, but here’s my 2 cents worth, too:
Let’s see if I’ve got this straight: Secretary of State John Kerry, owner of five multi-million dollar mansions along with a luxury yacht, has seen fit to lecture Indonesians (average income in 2012: $3,420) about why
global warmingclimate change is “perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”
Powerline: JOHN KERRY, SLOW LEARNER:
We are ganging up on John Kerry this morning. Here’s the thing–Kerry has a number of problems, but the most basic is that he isn’t very bright. He doesn’t have a high enough IQ for difficult work. As a senator, he hid his incapacity by ignoring virtually all of his job duties. As Secretary of State, his ineptitude–one might say shocking ineptitude, if this were not the Obama administration–is being exposed.
