President Obama might need a little help focusing his laser beam…Details next…For five years now, most Americans have told pollsters that they want the government to fix the economy and create jobs. And President Obama promised to focus on that like a laser beam. Many times. Then, like a moth distracted by passing headlights, he chased off after one liberal dream after another: Obamacare, immigration, free birth control, electric cars. This week, he found two distractions from the left’s book of golden oldies: nuclear disarmament and climate change. It’s nice to dream of a peaceful world without nukes. But before we had nukes, we had two world wars. Frankly, I wish Obama would worry less about America having nukes and more about Iran having them. As for fighting climate change, that’s liberal code for higher taxes on energy and even more job-killing EPA regulations. Ironically, carbon emissions are already dropping in the US, thanks to something liberals hate: clean, cheap natural gas obtained from fracking. Americans want Obama to refocus, for the umpteenth time, on jobs. Maybe he could start small by creating a job for a laser beam repairman.
Oh, and as someone who’s made my own share of speeches, I’d like to offer the President a little advice. Think more carefully about where your speech will be given. If you’re going to lecture Americans about how we generate too much CO2 pollution, you probably shouldn’t do that in the middle of a two-continent tour, for which you’ve taken along Air Force One, a warship, fighter jets to patrol your airspace 24/7, and military cargo planes to transport a fleet of armored limos and SUVs. I have a feeling that just getting Obama to that speech generated more CO2 than most of us will in a lifetime.
