Remember That Time Barack Obama Stopped The Oceans From Rising?

Politifact: TRUE, WINGNUTS!!11!

Oh, my. Mitt really stirred the hornets' nest with his joke about Obama's promise to rein in those pesky sea levels.

Like they did with Paul Ryan's Janesville GM plant reference, the "fact checkers" are wetting themselves as they completely miss the point (and get the facts wrong at the same time).

They can't accept that every rational person outside their little Progressive/Media (BIRM) bubble views their Messiah's grandiose promises of environmental healing and a magically restored economy where every job is a green job as the punchline to a joke. A very bad joke.

The death throes of their fairytale are going to be ugly, but lucky for us they will be televised. Enjoy.

23 I wish Mitt had mentioned that energy production carbon output has dropped to the lowest level in 20 years.  Barky's own energy department announced this last week.

The reason?  Cheap natural gas is being used to generate electricity.. that cheap natural gas his administration is trying to block from being drilled.

24 That’s because MSNBC offers counterprogramming, not coverage. All that arch sarcasm and partisan brio may rev up the cable channel’s fans, but it constrains — and stains — NBC News, its corporate sibling, which is still the country’s No. 1 source in the evening.

NBC and the other broadcast networks cut their live convention coverage to an hour during prime time this year, which leaves barely time to show the main speeches, let alone analyze them. Yet NBC’s chief anchor, Brian Williams, has conspicuously avoided the most fractious MSNBC discussion panels. Those anchors who do make dutiful appearances, like David Gregory and Tom Brokaw, are badly needed but don’t stay long or join the fray — like piano players in a brothel, they don’t go upstairs.

Wow! that's gonna leave a mark.

25 I'm telling you, right now, the bulk of progressives have gone their entire lives repeating the same cycle every time they lose and election or they are confronted with evidence that their political identity is a failure in the real world: They simply create a rational to deny reality then turn it into a permanent self-delusion.

This time will be no different.

The 'Empty Chair' thing is just brilliant, I think.

It can be used in so many ways....

 

An Empty Chair sitting on the beach...with the tide coming in, waves lapping at its legs.

 

An Empty Chair...sitting in front of a boarded up factory.

 

An Empty Chair...in front of a foreclosed home.

49 If you actually look at the trendline curve, you'll see that the rise of the oceans (derivative of the trendline of the curve) was slowing in 1992. Yes, the second derivative is negative throughout. I'll bet the levels are on an eighty-year minor cycle, anyways, and sea levels were higher in the 1930'.

OT, but have y'all read about the    fatal shooting at that NJ shopping     center    this morning?     Here's the description of the gunman from an article at ABC Local in NJ  (linked at Drudge):

 

The gunman was identified as a 23-year-old ex-Marine who worked at the supermarket for the last two weeks.

 

Authorities say the suspect left the store around 3:30 a.m. and returned a half hour later dressed in camouflage, armed with an AK-47 and an automatic handgun. He shot the two victims, both young adults, in separate parts of the store before turning the gun on himself.

 

First off, prayers for the victims.  May they RIP.

 

Second,     you know what this will be,     according to the media?   Another crazy    military vet who decided to   kill people.    The fact that the guy    served his entire two year stint    in the military in California and never deployed overseas will mean nothing.

53..... You know Clint was over the target because he sure did catch a lot of flak.

 

Exactly, Truck Monkey.

 

They're yelping like scalded dogs.

 

Clint's performance hit them on several levels....and he dared to mock their Messiah.

Not only that....he gave us a visual prop.

In politics, this is a valuable thing.

 

Clint Eastwood has always been one of the cerebral types in Hollywood.

Hollywood shunned him, early in his career.

So, he went to Europe and made all those spaghetti Westerns.....and made a name for himself, on his own...without them.

100 The problem seems to be that conservatives don't understand the nuanced meaning of "the moment".  We just aren't smart enough to understand that 10,000 years is "a moment" when speaking in evolutionary terms.  So, we won't really know for many centuries whether the godman was wrong for the first time in his life, if it's even possible for a post racial person to be wrong about anything, seeing as how they have suffered and all that.

"Well, guess what? Carville and Greenberg have just released a new poll, and it's devastating for Obama. Among independents -- the precious, eagerly sought, oh-God-everybody-loves-them independents -- Romney leads Obama (this is a poll this week) by 15 points, 53 to 38 in independents. This is remarkable. This is a Stan Greenberg and James Carville poll. "Independents disapprove of Obama's job performance 56 to 40%. And when looking at intensity, disapproval is greater than two to one, 47 to 20%." It is devastating. This is James Carville's own poll."

172 President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.

After it emerged that Obama was still taking time to fit in a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio before checking out how clean-up operations are proceeding in the Bayou state, the Obama campaign abruptly cancelled that event.

'In light of the President’s travel to Louisiana to meet with local officials and view ongoing response and recovery efforts to Hurricane Isaac, President Obama will no longer travel to Cleveland, Ohio on Monday, September 3,' the campaign said in a terse statement.

Romney had changed his schedule to head to an affected town outside New Orleans while Obama, who has yet to visit the Tropical Storm Isaac zone, headed off to Texas to campaign.

Oh yes, you can beat him with Humanities, too, if you're good at it.

Cnut the Great commanded the tides not to rise -- but that was his example to courtiers that there are some things even a king should not decree.

Xerxes had the Hellespont whipped for having the temerity to rise and wash away his invasion bridge. And we all know what became of that.

Sure, if your that brittle, fragile and already broken.

The thought, even the possibility shatters Obama and transforms the electoral results.

I went to the first link, and it's pretty hilarious:

 

"...This 2010 paper published by Science magazine (paywalled), notes that over the past 20 years, global sea level has risen an average of 3.3 millimeters a year.

This is becoming a severe social and political problem because so many people around the world, and millions of them in the United States (including Romney’s Boston headquarters) are located along coastlines. Approximately 10% of the world’s population lives at elevations of 10 meters or less above sea level, the Science paper notes, and many of these places suffer from subsidence, erosion, and other problems that hasten their exposure and possible demise."

 

In engineering, we call an average rise of 3.3mm/yr over 20 years "66mm", which we also call 6.6cm, which we also call 2.6 inches.  And it's baloney that it started around 1950, it's been going on for centuries.  To do another conversion, we're talking about roughly one FOOT per CENTURY.

 

These clowns describe this, which has been going on for centuries, as a "Serious problem".  Yeah, Romney's guys better hurry up and deal with the fact that their HQ will be 1 FOOT closer to being underwater when his great-grandkids might want to use the place to run for President.

 

PLUS, it looks like "10% of the world's population" has LESS THAN 3000 YEARS to pack up and move (and that's using THEIR numbers)!!  Science!! Oh my!!

absolutely f'ing hillarious empty chair references....LMAO

Alice N Chains is one of ef hutton's favorite bands, pink floyd and led zeppelin as well.  See even a conservative can be open minded....i just never really smoked dope for days on end like chris matthews or smoked tons of crack like most of the MFM...

@ those commenting about Paul Ryan's "freedom" lines.  Its a sad state of the nation i must report...my children, my cousin's children, my nieces and nephews....never say, "It's a free country..." has anyone noticed this childhood comment absent in the current vocabulary of our youth.  I've only recently been noticing it, and Ryan's speech brought it home.  We used to say that several times a day as children...whenever anyone said we couldn't do something, "yeah i can! its a free country..."  i remember my sister even saying that to my parents in her teenage years.  Yeah...ef hutton has a sister you SCOAMF.  Did i mention ef hutton is dead....hence my affinity to alice n chains...zombie music.

My very conservative father-in-law has been a Forbes reader for decades, and they slip lefty ideals into their content with such matter-of-fact subtlety that he had no idea how badly he was being propagandized.

282 So have they fact checked Obama's claim that it would in fact be teh moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow?  Looks like it didn't slow.  I give that 2 Pinocchios.

For the record, the above link does not adequately address the Janeville plant issue.  Breitbart does it better. They say that most of the employees were laid off on the DEC2008 date, but that the plant was not completely closed until APR2009.

 

They add that Obama specifically said (later) that he "will lead an effort to retool plants like the GM facility in Janesville".  Although the careful reader will note the weasel-word "like", meaning that he could say this and make Janeville think he would help, when he could live up to his promise by helping some other plant instead.

 

As far as accusations of lying, Ryan - if you read the actual text - only speaks of a prediction by CANDIDATE Obama in 2008 that "if our government is there to support you". So he was actually saying was that Obama had spoken in glowing terms about the government coming in and making everything wonderful for a century. He never actually claimed that Obama even made a promise - only a fantastical feel-good almost prediction ("almost", because he DID say "if") that (like so many others) didn't come true.

 

At the same time, Obama never lifted a finger to do anything, once he had the chance.  The plant is officially on standby, and could be re-opened.

 

His point was that Obama threw around a lot of flowery language that suggested that things would improve, and they never did. The quote was accurate, and the point was valid.

It is using this logic that George Bush was blamed for Katrina.

But since the levies held, Obama kept his promise.

The article that goes with the picture clearly says in it's headline hte ocean is rising higher faster than expected. 

By whom?  And what did Obama have with lower the expectations of the rising?

Everything is unexpected when you are a liberal.  It's sort of like they wake up every morning and are surprised the sun came up again... must be Obama who made that happen.

I just help there are enough selfish people left who will vote for Romney to save themselves and let the idealistic ocean watchers drown.

292 It is a rather funny to see the anti-agw train crash into the Obama-bashing crowd.

To wit: The graph posted above not only notes in its title the lack of acceleration but is directly preceded by

"If anything it looks like the trend is slightly decelerating:"

Obama promised that his election would mark the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow. Meaning exactly a decelerating trend.

While he is truly full of sh!t you guys have to work on consistencies.
