NICK GILLESPIE: When Wall Street Makes Crap Loans, It’s a Crisis; When DOE’s Steven Chu Does It, It’s Green Energy.

Watch out, Nick. Obama will be calling you a flat-Earther or something.

On the other hand, even Talking Points Memo is busting Obama for this one. “President Obama got a laugh out of a Maryland audience on Thursday when he mocked the Republican Party in a speech, comparing their skepticism of alternative energy to the ‘Flat Earth Society’ in Christopher Columbus’ day and President Rutherford B. Hayes’ apparent dismissal of the telephone. But while Obama thinks the GOP is in need of a science lesson, he may need to bone up on history himself. . . . Obama’s hardly the first presidential candidate to screw things up on the trail. But for an address specifically going after his opponents for their ignorance, it’s probably not great to have a ‘citation needed’ banner on top of his speech.”

Science is based on evidence. The evidence here is that Obama’s green programs are about funneling billions of taxpayer dollars to cronies and supporters.
