Obama Takes Cheap Shot at FL Gov. Rick Scott During Sparsely Attended Everglades Speech

President Barack Obama could not resist taking a cheap shot at Gov.Rick Scott (R-FL) while he was visiting his state, Wednesday afternoon.

The thinly veiled insult came during his sparsely attended speech at the Florida Everglades, which only a small handful of Floridians attended.

The speech was televised by Al Jazeera America but none of the major cable news networks, according to Mediaite. 

As the President made his case for taking action on climate change, he scoffed at one denier in particular who supposedly refuses to even allow the words “climate change” to be said in his state. ( A key component of the left’s strategy to impose their policies on the populous, is to mock and ridicule those who don’t go along with the program. The idea is to force everyone into accepting their hard- left agenda through peer-pressure. So it was important for Obama to isolate and  mock a powerful governor who doesn’t buy their hysterical claims about global warming. It’s Alinsky 101:

Describing climate change as a “bipartisan” issue, Obama said that people all over the country know “simply refusing to say the words ‘climate change’ doesn’t mean that climate change isn’t happening,” laughing as he made the remarks and drawing applause. “If you’ve got a coming storm, you don’t stick your head in the sand, you prepare for the storm.”

“Protecting the one planet we’ve got is what we have to do for the next generation,” Obama continued, saying he wants his grandchildren — “a long time from now” — to enjoy the Everglades just like those who lived before them.

Obama’s  audience understood that the reference was meant for Governor Scott who has allegedly banned the words “climate change” from being used by state workers in any official correspondence – which is kinda funny, if true.  (Those of us who don’t live in Florida, and/or don’t watch MSNBC, had to Google that stunning Chris Hayes scoop because it hasn’t exactly gone viral.)

Gov. Scott, who is one of many Republicans to remind the world he’s “not a scientist,” has denied that there is any written policy banning the words “climate change,” but others who worked in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection said that is was expressed verbally.

Meanwhile radio talk show host Laura Ingraham had the best come-back line for the trash-talking president:

    Looks like a lot of Ranger hats and reporters…

    I guess it’s not easy to ship those Astro-turf left-wing rent-a-mobs to the Everglades.

    If not for the 24/7 support of the compliant media would anyone be aware of global warming at all? Seriously, the only time I hear people commenting about global warming is to make a joke as it snows in May.

    Without droves of sycophant and unquestioning reporters where would the AGW movement be?

      Absolutely agree – media and parks service. The rest are probably local city and county officials.

    Here’s a clarification for the Scott Walker reference:

    Wisconsin is not allowing people to campaign for or promote climate change issues on the state time clock. In other words, if climate change has nothing whatsoever to do with your job description you are not to use state time or resources to advocate on either side of the issue.

    This is of course being labeled as a free speech issue for people who feel entitled to use tax dollars to advance their cause.

    This is especially ironic as the left recently promoted the public prosecution and conviction of a Walker aid who used state time to campaign for his election. They see no correlation…

        Hmm… looks like a great Scott coincidence. The Wisconsin story is also true. Leftists in this state want taxpayers to pay for their protests. In The People’s Republic of Madison this kind od thinking is a way of life.

    Insult? doesn’t look like it. some people are just touchy. I think you should expect far worse if you make a pointless rule banning the words “climate change” in official correspondence.

    And if it’s a false rumor, then there is no reason to be upset.

        Worse, by far. Chimpanzees are capable of learning new tricks.

    Obama should also know that works in reverse as well: saying the words doesn’t make it so, either.
