Obama Rips GOP: Even Immigrant-Hating Far-Right European Parties Accept Climate Change!

obama2President Obama touted the global climate deal during his year-end press conference today and went after Republicans for being too stubborn to accept the science.

“The American Republican party,” he said, “is the only major party that I can think of in the advanced world that effectively denies climate change.”

The president pointed to leaders of center-right governments who signed onto the deal and said, “Even the far-right parties in many of these countries, they may not like immigrants, for example, but they admit, ‘Yeah, the science tells us we’ve gotta do something about climate change.'”

When asked if he finds the GOP’s position “embarrassing,” Obama answered, “No, because first of all, I’m not a member of that party. Second of all, it didn’t stop us from being the key leader in getting this done.”
