Obama Insults Those Who Disagree With Him

Now President Obama is calling people names. He says those who disagree with his energy policy are part of the Flat Earth Society. That means they're backward and stupid and opposed to progress.

According to Obama, if you oppose subsidies for wind power—which are 1,000 times higher than oil and gas subsidies, you're in the Flat Earth Society. If you don't like the billions he's wasted subsidizing solar power, you're in the Flat Earth Society. If you oppose federal mileage standards because they add thousands of dollars to automobile prices, you're in the Flat Earth Society. If you complain that trying to make fuel from algae is far more expensive than even the cost of gasoline, you're in the Flat Earth Society.

That's from President Obama's latest speech. Yes, he has told us we should be civil and thoughtful, but that was last week.
