In a cringe inducing display, the President buttered up Britain’s Prince Charles yesterday during a meeting in which the future British monarch lobbied Obama on climate change.
While photographers and reporters were being ushered into the Oval Office, a groveling Obama leant over to Charles and noted “It’s fair to say that the American people are quite fond of the royal family.”
“That’s awfully nice to know,” Charles replied.
“They like them much better than they like their own politicians,” Obama smugly added, to which the Prince responded “I don’t believe that.”
The President then declined to answer a question from a reporter regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Charles is in Washington as part of a scheduled Royal visit. The next King of England also made stops at Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, and the National Archives.
The visit came in conjunction with the signing by Obama of (another) executive order, requiring the U.S. government to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent from 2008 levels over the next ten years.
The Prince of Wales has made it his mission to push the climate change agenda, and has repeatedly referred to the planet as a “sick patient” that can only be treated with radical policies.
While jetting all over the globe and living in several palaces and mansions, Charles has continually lectured on global warming, accusing politicians who delay action on climate change of “testing the disease to the patient’s destruction”.
In a particularly bizarre speech last month, Charles noted that even the United Nations, the World Bank, the Pentagon, the UK Ministry of Defence, the CIA and NSA all realise the gravity and immediacy of the threat, and they could “scarcely be accused of being part of some half-baked conspiracy dreamt up by extreme environmentalists intent on undermining capitalism”.
“Should we miss this moment the chances of success are, I fear, vanishingly small,” he said. “We must ensure that there is a real willingness to act and that such actions are meaningful in quality and scale.”
Charles has shifted his activism from previously warning that nano-technology could turn everything on the Earth into “grey goo,” and opposing genetically modified foods.
While many argue that Charles has little real political power, in reality he has full authority to veto legislation in Britain. Investigations have revealed that on several occasions, ministers have had to go through him in order to pass legislation that could affect his private interests, including the Duchy of Cornwall, a private £700m property empire that brings in some £18m annually.
When Charles is not lecturing the rest of the planet about living a humble life, he likes to boast about being related to a murderous tyrant, often depicted as a blood sucking vampire. Nice.
