Just a few weeks ago, Obama suggested in his inaugural address that his election represented the triumph of Democrat "hope" over Republican "fear." My oh my, how things have quickly changed:
"A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe."
-- President Obama, Feb. 4.
"I don't think the American public has gripped in its gut what could happen. We're looking at a scenario where there's no more agriculture in California. I don't actually see how they can keep their cities going."
--Secretary of Energy Steven Chu
"This would bring a screeching halt to human civilization and threaten life everywhere on Earth, and this is by the end of this century"
-Al Gore, January 28
"Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs. I don't think we can go fast enough to stop that."
Hope? Really? These guys sound more like the four horsemen of the apocalypse than harbingers of hope!
