Obama gave a stirring speech in challenging Putin's Russia to match deep nuclear weapons reductions by the U.S. Obama also said a major initiative to combat climate change will be released in the next two weeks. "On Wednesday in Berlin, Obama said the United States understood it had to do more to fight climate change and he pledged that more action was coming.
"Our dangerous carbon emissions have come down, but we know we have to do more. And we will do more," he said in a speech.
The president is expected to announce new U.S. measures to fight global warming in the coming weeks."
..."Zichal confirmed that an announcement is expected in weeks and highlighted moves that will shape Obama's agenda but not require new funding or legislation by Congress.Zichal confirmed that an announcement is expected in weeks and highlighted moves that will shape Obama's agenda but not require new funding or legislation by Congress.
She said the administration plans to expand energy efficiency standards for appliances, accelerate clean energy development on public lands and use the Clean Air Act to tackle greenhouse gas emissions in the power and energy sectors.
The Environmental Protection Agency is working to finish carbon emissions standards for new power plants. It is then expected to tackle regulations on existing power plants.
Zichal said that part of the Democratic president's strategy will be to depoliticize the issue of climate policy, which led to bitter partisan fights during his first term." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/19/obam...
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!

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.

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.

It never ceases to amaze me how as a so called teacher, you lie with a clear conscious.

You must have an amazing stomach and one heck of a morphing set of morals.

You know sitting & listening to you all let's me know for sure that this country is alot farther behind than the times would present. The flat out racism y'all spew like"no sweat off my back" is a clear indicator that there is no changing some people. I hope everything goes as it should come mid terms & the Dems take control of the House & maintain the Senate so, Barack can have complete authority to implement his full plan. Then I hope he makes you all suffer, deeply! Give you all a reason for your hated. Bettie Lou claims southern racism is a thing of the past. The fact you crackers on this thread have a means of communication to the world is proof that racism is alive & kicking. What makes me laugh is, you assholes call yourselves Christians meaning " like Christ " when in fact, your nothing like him at all! Only time will tell what the future holds in store for America but, I can only pray that whatever it is, there's a lesson that follows the blessing & you cowards reap what you sow!

Well said, and when you have the "Carols" of this world mimicking Fox talking points of the day in her posts you know they are running on empty. It also applies to her mates with continual posts about the "Magic Negro" etc. All veiled racism that they try and hide with political point scoring that has no substance.
I'm glad Obama is launching drones to watch the tea baggers.:)

Today, the Wahhabist extremist Muslim Brotherhood are an integral part of the White House functions, while at the same time they are at war with the United States and the central hub for the Wahhabist terrorist organizations throughout the Arab world.
Tell us which enemy of the United States had a full-time presence in the White House during Bush's tenure.

So, where's your evidence Sweden "is doing just fine".

Ah, yes, another idiot that thinks talking is the same as doing.

So, how does the president supporting a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of the United States and Israel help peace?

You can begin your essay with "Obama supporting the central muslim terrorist organization in the world promotes peace because ...."

Then, give us just one goddam reason we should have "talks" with the Taliban. Just one.

If the Democrats want to surrender Afghanistan, just pack up and leave. We can be completely out of Afghanistan in less than a month. Why are we waiting?

Give us just one reason why we shouldn't get out of Afghanistan immediately.
