America is waking up--even in Florida. The only way Hillary will win is if O'bama is impeached.

Republicans should focus less on Hillary and more on the likely candidate. Not knowing who that will be at this point, they need to attack the Democrat Party and Barack Obama.

It is a good direction for Obama to take because republicans have been more willing to tackle the climate change problem at the local and state-level . Work from the bottom-to-the-top for comprehensive climate reform!
Who the f*ck is "Zichal"?

Set carbon emissions for power plants low enough and they will ALL close, because there is no economically viable technology for removing carbon dioxide.

If "clean energy development on public lands" means solar power projects in the Mohave and Sonoran deserts, then the environmental destruction will dwarf that from fossil fuel emissions.

At least you used the word "scandal" which everyone knows is nothing more than a set of allegations intended to damage the reputation of the Obama administration, truth be damned.
Oh, there's plenty of truth. Plenty of lies and stonewalling to keep it hidden too.

The nominee will be an Obama surrogate:

Michelle Obama

Any white candidate is a long shot.

He's going back to his roots? He does like being connected to his black African heritage more than his white American heritage.

Or he just wants to go on Safari. Not sure really.

But the mountains in Yosemite are outdoorsy too. With the money saved, we could open the White House doors and tours again.

Polls say more Americans now think he is untrustworthy.

Did you hear about the Tea Party rally against the IRS in D.C.?

They looked like the heart of America to me. Couldn't find a more genteel protest on the planet. Not anything like the shadowy subversive people Obama said could be a threat to democracy.

Considering every Tea Party rally since 2010 has been nonviolent, nonthreatening and well-organized - and everyone even cleaned up after themselves afterwards - that was a rather odd thing for him to say, don't you think?

U.S. National Parks are for "whites only", or at least they appear to be.

Blacks not turned on by nature and scenery and history, prefer rap music.

Black folks find an NBA game more interesting than Yosemite.

We can always hope that Obama finds his roots in Kenya and decides to stay.

No White House Tours until they pick up all the chicken bones.
