From Huffington Post, in reaction to the Copenhagen “climate change deal”, Bill McKibben, author and founder of, said that  “The president has wrecked the UN and he’s wrecked the possibility of a tough plan to control global warming. It may get Obama a reputation as a tough American leader, but it’s at the expense of everything progressives have held dear.” He says that like its a bad thing. Wow, if that is true, I may be getting that Obama induced thrill up my leg. And I thought UN wrecking was only for the Dick Cheney’s of the world. Way to go Mr. President!!

I also like how (in the full comment) the person frames the need for the rich countries to pay off the poor countries, in the name of controlling climate change, as part of “everything progressives have held dear.”  This is only shocking in its honesty. Here I was thinking that the Copenhagen conference was about how best to stop global warming. You know, since its an objective settled science sort of thing.
