The White House on Tuesday rebuked Republican critics of its contribution to the United Nations climate pact, saying the criticisms are “hard to take seriously.”
Asked about congressional Republicans who want the Senate to have to approve an agreement, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that politicians who are skeptical of the science surrounding climate change are not qualified to judge the matter.
“These are individuals who — many of whom, at least, deny the fact that climate change even exists, so I'm not sure they would be in the best position to decide whether or not a climate- change agreement is one that is worth entering into,” Earnest told reporters Tuesday.
The lie of climate change is a big one and it is told frequently.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says he doesn’t regret saying in 2012 that Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes.
"No, I don’t regret that," Reid said in an interview with CNN.
"No one would help me, they were afraid the Koch Brothers would go after them. So I did it on my own," Reid said, referring to the billionaire conservative donors Charles and David Koch. "That's what I felt I had to do."
Reid's relentless attacks on Romney’s tax returns — which the candidate refused to release at the time — drew a firestorm of criticism. Reid refused to reveal his source for the information even as he repeated the charge multiple times.
This is just one of the lies attributed to Reid
Hillary Clinton used an iPad and Blackberry to send official emails at the State Department despite her claim that she relied on a personal address to avoid the inconvenience of multiple devices, according to The Associated Press.
The AP received four emails from a Freedom of Information Act request filed in 2013, and one exchange showed Clinton mistakenly responding to senior aide Huma Abedin’s email about drone strikes with questions about furniture.
This is just one of the lies attributed to Hillary.
U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice is under fire for going on several Sunday talk shows five days after the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and providing apparently erroneous information to the public. But Obama’s own public statements about Benghazi, made in three separate nationally televised interviews in the days after Rice’s appearances, were equally misleading and have received scarcely any attention.
Sometimes the truth does win.
