After finally defeating Hillary Clinton in one of the most drawn out and contentious Democrat primaries in recent memory, after finally reaching the finish line, in his primary victory speech Barack Obama promised America this:
“This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”
So when the greatest wildfires in Colorado history hit, the obvious question was, where was the messiah in his duties of healing the earth and stopping the fires?
98% of the time Obama goes infront of the press, he reads prepared remarks from his teleprompter and then quickly leaves the podium before any questions can be asked, but were I given a media pass and afforded the opportunity to ask a question, here’s what I would ask:
Mr. President, your defense budget cuts 65 C-130 aircraft from our national fleet at a time when the available planes are stretched to their thinest by your escalated war in Afghanistan. These C-130 planes are can be fitted to drop 3,000 gallons of fire-retardent material in 5 seconds and are our most powerful weapon againt raging wildfires such as the one in Colorado which has now become the worst in state history.
As the man who promised to America that he would be the president who would slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet, how do you explain the fact that your policies have actually made worse the attempt to slow the massive wildfires in Colorado?
To which I’m quite certain he’d reply something to the effect of:
Read the Rest at Mike Cornelison.
To this The TalkMaster Neal Boortz had this to say
@Talkmaster – You would think I’d Obama can roll back the rising oceans he could put out some stupid fires.
