The One Fractures History.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 2:40 pm

In a recent Energy speech, The One wowed the crowed with this gem:

Let me tell you something. If some of these folks were around when Columbus set sail — [Laughter] — they must have been founding members of the Flat Earth Society. [Laughter.] They would not have believed that the world was round. [Applause.] We’ve heard these folks in the past. They probably would have agreed with one of the pioneers of the radio who said, “Television won’t last. It’s a flash in the pan.” [Laughter.] One of Henry Ford’s advisers was quoted as saying, “The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only a fad.” [Laughter.]

Mark Steyn schools “the smartest guy ever to become president.”

It’s a must-read.

  2. A flat earther is an idiot who thinks windmills and solar panels mean we can stop drilling .A flat earther will say we have only two percent of the world’s energy sources and we consume twenty five percent when he has no basis for the figures especially when there is strong evidence we have huge reserves . No one challenges his misstatements ,and he keeps repeating them.It is similar to his whining about write offs for oil companies and small jet owners .If these were eliminated,the savings would be minute . The big oil companies don’t get them either .But he arouses class envy like a good Marxist , and the idiots cheer .After the cheering , he holds $ 10,000 a plate fund raisers with the people he has ripped. That’s a demagogue .

  5. My favorite graf:

    But obviously Rutherford B. Hayes isn’t as “forward-looking” as a 21st-century president who believes in Jimmy Carter malaise, 1970s Eurostatist industrial policy, 1940s British health-care reforms, 1930s New Deal–sized entitlements premised on mid-20th-century birth rates and life expectancy, and all paid for by a budget with more zeroes than anybody’s seen since the Weimar Republic. If that’s not a shoo-in for Mount Rushmore, I don’t know what is.
