The pathetic Democrat clownshow that began Monday night is still slogging on as the hapless Dingy Harry and his merry band of morons continue to slander anyone who doesn’t believe their unsupported junk science.
“Climate change deniers still exist,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said at the beginning of the talkathon at 6:30 p.m. Monday. “They exist, I’m sorry to say, in this Congress. … Climate change exists and it’s time to stop denying it.”
Schatz and Whitehouse said Congress could reduce harmful effects of climate change if the United States relied less on fossil fuels.
“Climate change it real and climate change is caused by humans and climate change is solvable and we will not stop until Congress acts,” Schatz said.
Why are they waiting for Congress? They control the Senate (for now), so why don’t they act? Oh, because they’re afraid of another humiliating loss when their own members abandon them.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Democrats’ attack on fossil fuels was “cruel” to his constituents.
“Families are losing work because of government attacks on the coal industry. Communities are hurting and tonight you’re going to hear 30 hours of excuses from a group of people who think that’s ok,” McConnell said at the beginning of the evening. “Well it’s not ok. It’s cruel.”
Meanwhile, remember how Ted Cruz was ridiculed for reading to his kids from the Senate floor from his own one-man talkathon last October? Yeah, about that:
Sens. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) took a page out of the Republican playbook and quoted a Dr. Seuss book on the Senate floor.
Markey was the first to cite the Dr. Seuss classic, “The Lorax,” during a more than 12-hour talkathon on climate change Monday night.
“‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not,'” Markey read before thanking the others who “care a whole awful lot.”
How original. Meanwhile, vulnerable Democrats fled in fear from their idiot counterparts.
“Climate change is a mixed bag” for Democrats, says Jennifer Duffy, who tracks Senate races for the Cook Political Report. “While it certainly motivates parts of the Democratic base, it also is a big negative for them with other voters.”
It all depends on the state, she explains.
Senators Landrieu and Begich are locked in tight races in energy-producing states that depend on fossil fuels for jobs. The Alaska chapter of Americans for Prosperity, for instance, is spending more than $400,000 on advertising that hits Begich for being “on record supporting a carbon tax,” according to Politico. Senators Hagan and Pryor are simply “very vulnerable and are shying away from controversial issues like climate change,” says Ms. Duffy.
All four represent red states that Mitt Romney carried in 2012 and where President Obama and his agenda are not very popular.
Are there any states left where Obama’s agenda is popular? Also Monday, Obama henchman John Podesta took to Twitter to also insult anyone with a different opinion. Sure, that should work.
