From Ponte's December 18 Newsmax column:
Like Tiger Woods, President Barack Obama arrived Friday for the finale of the Copenhagen climate gathering eager to give cold cash to get hot love.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday rolled out a carpet of greenbacks for Mr. Obama's beatification. She told delegates that the United States was prepared to join with other rich nations to provide $100 billion every year in what amounts to reparations to poor countries to atone for our purported damage to Earth's climate.
She left it to President Obama on Friday to announce how much American taxpayers shall pay. Typically the U.S. ponies up at least one-third of such pledges.
