It isn’t surprising when the President tells lies. He lies to impress us and make us believe his plans will work. He told us that if we liked our doctors we could keep them because he wanted to get us to support the so-called Affordable Care Act.
But other times he lies not to impress us but to impress himself. He lets us see what a legend he is in his own mind. He shows us how ridiculous he is.
Thus The Hill reports, “Obama: Climate summit a ‘powerful rebuke’ to terrorists.”
President Obama declared Tuesday that next week’s climate change summit in Paris would be a “powerful rebuke” to terrorists, speaking alongside French President François Hollande at a joint news conference.
“Next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference,” Obama said during his prepared remarks, which focused mostly on the efforts to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be, when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children,” he added.
The two leaders met in Washington a week and a half after ISIS carried out multiple terrorist attacks in Paris, killing 130, and less than a week before Obama goes to the French capital to work with world leaders on an international pact to fight climate change.
Obama struck a similar tone Sunday at a news conference in Malaysia.
“I think it is absolutely vital for every country, every leader, to send a signal that the viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business, and that Paris … is not going to be cowered by the violent, demented actions of a few,” Obama said about the upcoming climate conference.
Terrorists are going to be powerfully rebuked by a conference on global warming? Obama must actually believe this nonsense. If he didn’t he would never say such a thing because he would know how stupid it sounds.
But it doesn’t sound stupid to him. He doesn’t even understand that the terrorists are laughing at him.
