Bill Clinton: Obama Couldn’t Make Ocean Recede During Sandy

Posted by on Oct 30, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Four years ago was the time when Obama said the sea levels would begin to fall and the planet would heal.


Former President Bill Clinton attempted to hit Mitt Romney by tying Hurricane Sandy to climate change, but succeeded only in reminding voters of one of President Obama’s more absurd promises from 2008.

“In my part of America, we would’ve liked it if somebody could’ve done that yesterday,” Clinton told Minnesotans today, referring to Obama’s promise to “to turn back the seas,” as Clinton put it. Obama’s actual prediction ran like this: “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” (CBS notes that he incorrectly claimed that Romney mocked Obama during the presidential debate for that remark.)

CBS added that “The former president noted that cities like New York have to implement policies to prepare for the changing climate and said, ‘In the real world, Barack Obama’s policies work better.’”

Ask the relatives of the dead in Benghazi about that.

As to tying Sandy to climate change, it appears Clinton’s not the only lunatic to float that absurdity.

Update: Here’s video.

Update: The climate change derangement virus is rapidly spreading.

    I’m surprised Clinton hasn’t hit on her by now. Zaftig chicks are his type after all. It would give more credibility than she has now. Which is to say: none.

    Let’s ignore Bill’s passive-agressive behavior in reminding the world of what a self-regarding ass Obama is.

    Is the former president politicizing the storm? Yes, crassly so.
