A true 5-way superstar, this first-year phenom. The league-leader in pitch-fork receiving, throwing people under the bus, back-stabbing, handing off to the big players, and, of course, punting:
SINGAPORE — President Obama and other world leaders have decided to put off the difficult task of reaching a climate change agreement at a global climate conference scheduled for next month, agreeing instead to make it the mission of the Copenhagen conference to reach a less specific “politically binding” agreement that would punt the most difficult issues into the future.
Among the chief barriers to a comprehensive deal in Copenhagen was Congress’s inability to enact climate and energy legislation that sets binding targets on greenhouse gases in the United States. Without such a commitment, other nations are loath to make their own pledges.
On top of all this talent, the guy is just so coachable and absolutely fantastic with the media, too. His biggest fans, in fact, seem to be the very people he so frequently tramples, stabs, and kicks.
Asked for a post-game comment, Mr. Obama said, “See? Change you can believe in: Climate Change!”
