A report at the link below is titled, In touching tribute to Mandela, Obama posts photo of himself watching TV (sarcasm intended).
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa in one of modern history's more remarkable national, and personal, transformations.
The Mandela family turned down the hoped-for photo-op.
Instead Obama did a photo-op of himself in Mr. Mandela’s old prison cell.
As soon as the death of Nelson Mandela was announced the Obama administration posted the July photo of Obama in Mr. Mandela’s old prison cell (shown above).
During Obama’s 593-word statement on the Death of Nelson Mandela, Obama managed to reference the deceased freedom fighter 8 times while referencing himself, using “I and me” 14 times.
Obama has a reputation for seeking the spotlight, even when it's intended for someone else - illustrated by the photos shown on this page including the photo of Mr. Obama seated in the Rosa Parks bus above.
When Neil Armstrong died on August 25, 2012, Barack Obama “honored” the astronaut’s passing with a photo of himself looking up at the Moon.
A report at the first link below says more than 573,000 birds are killed by the country's wind farms each year, including 83,000 hunting birds such as hawks, falcons and eagles.
Each death is federal crime, a charge that the Obama administration has used to prosecute oil companies when birds drown in their waste pits, and power companies when birds are electrocuted by their power lines.
No wind energy company has been prosecuted, even those that repeatedly flout the law.
The Obama administration has given wind farms 30 more years to kill eagles without penalty yet the oil and gas industry continues to be fined on a regular basis.
The Obama administration has never fined or prosecuted a wind farm for killing eagles and other protected bird species, shielding the industry from liability and helping keep the scope of the deaths secret, an Associated Press investigation has found.
The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way.
The warmists have been proved wrong time and again, each time reacting with little more than pictures of forlorn polar bears on ice floes and trying to shut down the opposition.
Warmists love to show this photo as ‘proof’ of a warming planet. What they don’t tell you is the photo was taken near the south end of Hudson Bay in the summer.
More bad timing: Arctic ice increased by almost a third this past year, while that at the South Pole was thicker and wider than it’s been in 35 years.
While Oxford University Press, the British publisher of the Oxford dictionaries, declared those little smartphone self-portraits its winner last month for 2013 word of the year, the folks at Merriam-Webster, an American maker of dictionaries, announced “science” as its pick on Tuesday.
Oxford tracked a huge jump in overall usage of “selfie,” but Merriam-Webster stuck primarily to words that people looked up on its Web site, recording a 176 percent increase for “science” compared with last year.
