Obamessiah Suck-Up of the Day

According to environmental news site Planet Ark on Thursday:
Nike Inc, Starbucks Corp and investor coalition Ceres are among the founding members of a new coalition calling for strong US climate and energy legislation in early 2009.

The group, named Business for Innovative Climate and Energy Policy (BICEP), will lobby for policies that encourage energy efficiency, renewable energy use and green job creation, while discouraging higher-polluting technologies.

Other founding members of BICEP include Levi Strauss & Co, Sun Microsystems Inc and Timberland Co.

"These companies have a clear message for next year's Congress: move quickly on climate change and create a prosperous green economy and green jobs at the same time," Ceres President Mindy Lubber, said in a statement released Wednesday.
Obama--is there anything he can't do? After all, the President-elect's committed to the issue; in June he promised his Presidency "was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."

Still, that's not as impressive as the power President Bush already deployed to change the weather (see page 45).

Yeah, he can't fix the economy by screwing it up completely.

He can't fix foreign policy by screwing it up completely.

As a matter of fact, he can't not screw everything up completely.

And to the inevitable claim "How can you say that -- You haven't seen him do anything yet", I refer you to a response once provided by Wednesday Addams: "Wait."
