Hoover's "Dust Bowl" of the 30s (left) and Obama's crop destroying drought (right). Has Nature joined the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy to end the Obama presidency?
What a cruel and ironic turn of events for our hapless, ill-starred, one term president. Here's Barack Obama the most radical environmentalist prez ever on a life and death mission of socialist mercy to save us from a global warming catastrophe, and look at what's happening? He's being clobbered by the weather in scorched Middle America as "climate change" burns a hole in his reelection campaign. It's truly amazing.
Of all the years for Mother Earth to go inferno, to cause a crop destroying drought with wells running dry, livestock unfed and food costs soaring for stressed consumers, 2012 for Obama is the worst. Couldn't Nature have waited till after the election to wreck such hellish devastation? Why now with so much at stake? With the fate of the earth hanging in the balance? With Obama needing four years more to make the earth pollution free, pristine like it was before the age of capitalist greed-when people were lucky to live past 20 and poverty was the norm. Has Nature gone racist joining Tea Party haters to end the Obama presidency? It sure looks that way.
Can the environment stand a fighting chance with Bain-ful Romney and the GOP ruling Washington DC? With right wingers wanting dirty air, toxic water and Miami submerged in the sea turning back decades of progress in CO2 policy? Why is Gaia turning up the heat just as the recovery is losing steam? It's insanely surreal like a melting Salvador Dali dream. Obama was to make us flourish and now farmers are famished amidst a food stamp explosion where bread will soon be rationed. It's deja vu all over again. Herbert Hoover's "Dust Bowl" days risen from the dead-when the Depression reared its ugly head, preceding Hoover's crushing defeat to a governor from the great northeast.
As a last resort to make it rain and save his faltering campaign Obama hired (with stimulus funds) Johnny Thundercloud, a legendary shaman of the Cherokee nation-a distant cousin of Elizabeth Warren the anti-capitaliist oil hating nut (running for Congress) with a feather for a brain. Some time this week Johnny will perform his magic rain dance on the White House lawn assisted by Lizzie clad as an Indian squaw. Will the gods respond with a blessed downpour? With Obama's luck they'll be too much rain drowning the crops after turning them to hay.
