Why do YOU think this is important Obama didn’t think so. Again you Dems are fool of BS when it comes to actually practice what you preach.

More than 120 climate-vulnerable countries signed on to the EU vision calling for all countries to be held accountable for their carbon emissions in the future, not just the industrial countries. The U.S., China and India, all for slightly different reasons, refused.
European climate commissioner Connie Hedegaard said she was encouraged by progress overnight, but warned that if the three largest polluters stand fast, "I don't think that there will be a deal in Durban.

It's a strange world when the U.S. is aligning with China and India to block action on global warming," said Jake Schmidt of the New York-based Natural Resources Defense Council.

I do find this very amusing, Pot calling the kettle black

DNC ticket

Hillary lived in the W.H for 8 years.

Clinton was Regan’s counter part. Dem tout women rights etc so why the DNC kick out Hillary and went for the “Token” light Blackman a nobody junior senator that if we put his resume against Hillary’s its NO contest.

I’ve NEVER seen such a lopsided job application pick for a “worker”
Even Hillary was pissed she was kicked out so early by her own party

What I see was White Dems at the highest level practicing reverse Racism and using a skin color to win a presidential election.

So who actually use a “Token” at the highest level???? D.N.C.

Now Im curious on “nothing to offer” At this point I want to shut down the W.H. when Dem house speaker says ....Pass the Obama care bill now and we will see whats in it later

mmm call the an offering????.

I can't argue with you about who had the better resume for the job, however Obama obviously pushed all the right buttons so he was chosen because he had an X factor Hillary didn't have.
btw "nothing to offer" refers to Palin & Bachmann appealing until they open their mouth & put their foot in it.

Well who would you put up Ann Coulter ?? A female version of Rush & Beck where the most inspiring thing she could say is what she had for lunch. The rest of the time is taken up telling us what's wrong with the government. HTF could anyone be inspired by that, a totally empty vessel lacking purpose and ideas. Much like the tea party.
Her latest light bulb moment was to tweet a mock of Michelle Obama who added herself to the campaign of bringing back the kidnapped girls in Nigeria. Coulter posted with a sign "bring back our country". I mean that says it all, class that is lower than a snakes belly.

CNN boss Jeff Zucker conceded that his audience is not interested in the network's global warming agenda, but he indicated that he will try to find more creative ways to make them care.

"Climate change is one of those stories that deserves more attention, that we all talk about, but we haven't figured out how to engage the audience in that story in a meaningful way," Zucker said Monday at an awards dinner in New York. "When we do do those stories, there does tend to be a tremendous amount of lack of interest on the audience's part."

No doubt you would have been shouting the loudest when Bush sent in the troops to Iraq looking for WMD's. Rational voters would have known that was a hoax,

Hillary Clinton voted for the invasion too, Biden voted to invade Afghanistan.

We're still in Afghanistan and more Americans have died there since Obama took office than in all of Bush's two terms.

Then why did Senator Kerry and Senator Clinton vote to go into Iraq? Biden voted for the use of force in Afghanistan and under his administration more Americans have been lost there than all of Bush's two terms.

I just love how you ringers play with stats, the reason Bush might have had fewer casualties was because no-one was there, they were all in Iraq. Another monumental mistake the Bush administration made, cleaning up the Taliban and then pulling out letting them regroup.

In the meantime 1000's more die in Iraq just so they could celebrate with a car bomb at the markets every other week. Democracy does wonders in the middle east.

Obama left Iraq too soon; blame him for the weekly bombings. Clinton and Kerry voted for the Iraq war; don't blame Bush for their votes.

The White House is refusing to confirm whether President Barack Obama followed up on his pledge to take a 5 percent pay cut due to sequestration last year.

Obama promised last April to take a 5 percent pay cut in "solidarity" with federal employees who were furloughed as a result of the automatic budget cuts, known as the sequester. The cut was meant to equate to the level of spending cuts imposed on nondefense federal agencies.
