Obama and Copenhagen…you were expecting something?
Obama isn’t going to save us; we’re going to have to save ourselves…
~“Why is everyone so pissed at Obama,” Grist
I’m going to break my own rule about global warming. Because seriously, did you really think Obama was going to Superman the US into changing its ways?
Don’t get me wrong…I’m much happier with Obama at the helm than I ever was with Bush, and not only because he can pronounce “nuclear.” But much like every Democrat or Republican that’s landed a nomination for the presidency, I don’t doubt he’s collared by a few lobbies. And most of those lobbies don’t care a shit for environmental issues. And then, as Grist points out, he still has Congress to deal with.
Sadly, I’ve learned to expect the worst from the president (no matter who holds that title). The president has too many obligations that don’t hold the best interests of the American people at heart. Get used to it.
If you want change in regards to global warming, here’s an idea: do something about it yourself. Ditch the car, buy a bicycle. Get into a smaller house, turn the AC up in the summer and the heater down in winter. Quit whining like a fucking baby and do something. Don’t expect Superman to fly in and save you. If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.
