If you answered "no" to my prior questions (Link 1 or Link 2) about whether or not there had ever been a bigger hypocrite that Barack Obama, check out this piece at  You might want to reconsider your answer.

The piece juxtaposes Obama's words with his administration's actions.  

On December 20, 2008, Obama waxed poetic about how "promoting science" requires "listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it's inconvenient - especially when it's inconvenient."

But in March, Obama's "Environmental Protection Agency suppressed an internal report that was skeptical of claims about global warming."  An EPA official explained to skeptical scientist in his own agency that "the administrator and the administration has decided to move forward . . . and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision."

In other words . . . if the science is inconvenient, the Obama administration sure hopes that you don't hear about it.
