Obama's A Man Of His Word

    Remember this famous speech from then-Senator Obama -- the one from 2008, in which he declared that his election would cause the oceans to stop rising and the planet to heal?

    As it turns out, this is one of the few promises Obama has kept. Or at least, the oceans have kept it for him.....

    Earlier this month, the European Space Agency's Envisat monitoring, global sea level revealed a “two year long decline [in sea level] was continuing, at a rate of 5mm per year.”

    In August 2011, NASA announced that global sea level was dropping and was “a quarter of an inch lower than last summer.”

    Most surprising, despite the fact that Obama only said he would only “slow” the rise of the oceans, his presidency has presided over what some scientists are terming an “historic decline" in global sea levels. Obama appears to have underestimated his own powers to alter sea level.

    I bet Al Gore developed a sudden violent case of diarrhea when he read that.

    It was most likely spewing from his mouth....

    Didn't he buy a house recently on the shore somewhere? He probably knew all along he was full of it.
