    After 2 weeks up bickering, posturing and adolescent behavior..After watching the "premier" climate change conference turn into something that looked like it was organized by the UN (Oh wait! This WAS organized by the UN!)...After watching "developing countries" run around with palms out, looking for money from the "imperialists"...After watching China seriously attempt to position itself as a developing country, along the lines of Tahiti..Obama: 1.

Blames everybody..3.Crashes a couple of meetings...and 4.Calls a press conference to declare victory (where's that "Mission Accomplished!" sign, when you need it?)...For any student who's a Poly-Sci major; take note.

Maybe the Prez had to rush back & "sell" the Senate on "global warming" during a 2 ft snow storm in mid-December-DC!
