"What manner of man is this...?"

Although probably not the way he envisioned, nor his, um, disciples expected it to happen, but it does appear President Obama has made good on at least one significant campaign promise.

On June 3, 2008, in St. Paul (Where else? Corpus Christi maybe?), then candidate Barak Obama gave his now famous "This was the moment" speech. As he celebrated clinching the Democrat Party nomination for president that evening, he avowed that, "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."

Well, it took 20 months, but he did it. While the details in the report never quite rise to the stylistic standard established in the King James Version, the headline is nonetheless undeniable, "Climate scientists withdraw journal claims of rising sea levels."
