It's always easier to look BACK and think, "We almost elected HIM??" than it is to look ahead and see how foolish we're going to look later if we do. (Someday we may be looking back at Hillary and thinking, "We almost elected HER??")
Here's a taste of what I mean:
Politicians using tragedy to advance an agenda has been a tried-and-true strategy. Paint the idea green and a natural catastrophe became political fodder for former Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry (
Kerry appeared on MSNBC on February 6 to discuss storms that have killed at least 50 people throughout the
Southeastern United States. So, of course, Kerry used the platform to advance global warming alarmism.
“[I] don’t want to sort of leap into the larger meaning of, you know, inappropriately, but on the other hand, the weather service has told us we are going to have more and more intense storms,” Kerry said. “And insurance companies are beginning to look at this issue and understand this is related to the intensity of storms that is related to the warming of the earth. And so it goes to global warming and larger issues that we’re not paying attention to. The fact is the hurricanes are more intensive, the storms are more intensive and the rainfall is more intense at certain places at certain times and the weather patterns have changed.”
Can you imagine being one of the victims or one of the bereaved in Arkansas or Tennessee today, and then turning on the TV to hear Sen. Kerry
explaining about pandering to his special interests on global warming being the cause of the tragedy?
