Politicians who don’t drink the climate change Kool Aid are on the radar of President Obama’s never-ending campaign. Obama wasn’t able to pass cap and trade when his party had a majority in both houses of Congress, so there’s no chance it will pass now. But that doesn’t matter to the people of OFA, his campaign organization. He knows not how to govern, but he does know how to demonize his opponents, so that’s what this new “non-profit” group is setting out to do.
In an email to supporters on Thursday, Organizing for Action said it was time to call out members of Congress who deny the existence of climate change, saying they had blocked efforts to avoid its most catastrophic consequences.
The email linked to a video mocking Republicans who reject the science on climate change. “Right now, way too many lawmakers in Washington flat-out refuse to face the facts when it comes to climate change,” Jon Carson, executive director of Organizing for Action wrote in the email. “We’re never going to make real progress on this issue unless members of Congress get serious.”
The video mainly features Republican members of the House of Representatives who are notorious for denying the existence of climate change, or positing bizarre notions about its causes.
However, it also includes some national figures such as the Florida senator Marc Rubio and House speaker John Boehner, whose views on climate are not that broadly known. There are no Democrats in the video.
See what Rubio gets for working with the other side? Attacked and mocked by the other side. When will these aisle jumpers learn? As for the rest of the climate change skeptics, the more Obama attacks them, the more I like them.
