Warmists Realize That Obama Was Just Using Them

The cluebat of reality finally strikes the alarmists at Grist

On the eve of the Power Shift 2011 climate youth conference, no one expects President Obama to show. If he did, he’d probably get booed by activists angry about his tightening embrace of the oil, coal, gas, and nuclear industries. But it was a very different story two years ago at the last Power Shift, when 10,000 young, idealistic activists filled the Washington Convention Center screaming his name on the opening night of the conference, anticipating his arrival after tantalizing hints from White House staff that he would accept an invitation to speak. After all, we were the ones who’d helped elect him, and he wouldn’t want to pass up the chance to fire up so many young, idealistic activists.

But what happened that night gave us a first inkling that the man we had elected on a promise to heal a “planet in peril” and mobilize the country in a race for clean energy was a very different person from the one who now sat in the Oval Office. The first, minor straw was when Obama didn’t show, leaving everyone disappointed. But we all thought he probably had something more important or urgent to do. He was the president, after all.

Then we heard the rumor and saw the dreadful confirmation on the news: Instead of giving a few minutes of his time to rally the movement, he was three blocks away at the Verizon Center in a front row seat watching the Wizards play the Bulls.

And he was a no show for the following 3 nights to.

So no one’s waiting for Obama any more. We’ve realized that in the great battle between Big Bird and Big Oil, President Obama is Snuffleupagus — our imaginary friend. When we’re alone together, we can dream of a bright future. But when the dirty energy lobbyists show up looking for a fight, somehow he’s never there. Suddenly, you’re alone up against their billions — and when you look in the distance, it occasionally seems as if he’s reappeared on their side. Also, you realize that he’s not as furry as Snuffy, and doesn’t have a Snuffle. WTF, Barackalupagus?

If a Conservative had written that, he/she would have been called a racist.

BTW, the alarmists are going to be at the White Snuffle House protesting Barry this weekend.

    He’s never been about conservation. He’s been about elimination and retribution.
