    COPENHAGEN - The United States, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa last night reached what President Obama called a “meaningful and unprecedented breakthrough’’ to control climate change, although the agreement will not be legally binding and falls short of even the most timid expectations of what would come out of the much-anticipated talks here.

    you can't make this stuff up.

    What came out of it is another Robert Gibbs press conference in which he praises the President for another major accomplishment in a long list of accomplishments. What was actually accomplished is another way for this president to spend money on something that is a complete and total failure.

    Obama reads the script, and then goes "HUH?" as the world laughs at his empty rhetoric...

    should we really be surprised obama calls this a breakthrough when he accepted the nobel peace prize....

    this climate "agreement" is nothing, means nothing....just like the current h/c bull (spelled bill incorrectly on purpose) that does nothing, but he can go around claiming he "signed" something....its a "small" step in a "long" journey....

    yeah....translation....obama tours advertises great trips across the country, after the first mile the trip is done, but don't complain, because obama got the tour started and that is all that counts....
