Obama Calls Critics of His Alternative Energy Plans: ‘Founding Members of Flat Earth Society’

He really goes after 'em with this speech !!

Of course, the only resort left is to attack the facts.
And make every effort to sway opinions.

With all the failed projects that netted millions of dollars to his cronie organ grinders,
What else is left ?

It seems the majority of successful alternative energy companies are ones
that are not involved with the Obama hot air balloons and pie in the sky malarkey.

( – President Barack Obama likened Republican politicians who are calling for increased oil drilling and disparaging his efforts to subsidize the development of alternative energy soucres such as wind power, solar power and algae to "founding members of the Flat Earth Society."

“Lately, we’ve heard a lot of professional politicians, a lot of the folks who are running for a certain office who shall go unnamed, they've been talking down new sources of energy,” Obama said Thursday at Prince George's Community College in Maryland.

“They dismiss wind power. They dismiss solar power. They make jokes about biofuels. They were against raising fuel standards. I guess they like gas-guzzlers," said Obama.

The "Flat Earthers"

a few more "beauties" :

"They think that's good for our future. We’re trying to move towards the future; they want to be stuck in the past," he said. “We’ve heard this kind of thinking before. Let me tell you something. If some of these folks were around when Columbus set sail, they must have been founding members of the Flat Earth Society."

“They would not have believed that the world was round," said Obama. "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.’ One of Henry Ford’s advisors was quoted as saying, ‘The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only a fad."

With his comment about Columbus, maybe he is hinting

at a new project to go back to sailboat technology !

Watch the video in the link article.

Watch Obama stammer and stutter while he keeps touching his face
and nodding his head down as he keeps his eyes forward ....

Ay Yi Yi !!!

Wow for a president that is supposed to be soooo smart, yet when faced with criticism he resorts to childish remarks.
