Al Gore calls Obama climate change speech the best ‘by any president ever’

Former Vice President Al Gore praised President Obama’s energy policy speech at Georgetown University on Tuesday as “the best address on climate by any president ever.” Writing on his blog, Gore, who won a Nobel Peace Price for his climate change activism, called Obama’s speech “historic.”  In his speech, Obama said the White House would direct the Environmental Protection Agency to draft new rules to limit the carbon pollution from both new and existing power plants that should be in effect by 2015. The president also said the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline should only be approved if it didn’t increase greenhouse gas pollution. 
Gore called Obama’s EPA directive the most important part of the White House plan. “This action — if followed by skillful and thorough execution of the plan — has the potential to fundamentally alter the course of our nation’s energy infrastructure development and help to promote a sustainable future,” he wrote. “On the international front, this action will bolster U.S. credibility and moral authority in negotiations with other countries.”...more

Al Gore is just a big ole waste of skin and most people know it.  Nice to have around though when you're looking for ignorant comments.  Take for instance:

"the best address on climate by any president ever"

Better than George Washington?  Washington never said anything about it, cuz he would never tell a lie.

Better than Abe Lincoln?  Not a single word on climate.  He was too busy rippin' the former Republic apart.

Better than Woodrow Wilson?  Zero on climate.  Guess he was too busy gettin' us in a war, segregatin' federal depts. and messin' around with Mary Hulbert.

Better than FDR?  Nada on climate.  He was too busy packin' the Supreme Court, gettin' us in a war and messin' around with Lucy Mercer.

Better than JFK?  CQC - Camelot was Quiet on Climate.  Guess he was too busy backin' down from Kruschev and messin' around with Mimi Alford, Judith Exner, Marilyn Monroe, Mary Meyer and...(no wonder he had a bad back).

Better than Clinton?  Ole Party Boy did talk about it and even signed the 1997 Global Warming Accord.  But let's be honest.  Slick Willie was too busy Bombin' Kosovo, Boppin' Babes and Hidin' from Hillary to put much emphasis on climate.

All this leads me to two conclusions:

One, Al Gore could actually be right about this speech.

Two, we need to find Obama a girlfriend or two.
