During his speech today Barack Obama lashed out at the “flat earth” Republicans for not supporting his decision to blow $54 million dollars on a plant that created only 5 full-time jobs.

“These folks dismiss the promise of solar power and wind power and fuel-efficient cars. They make jokes about it. One member of Congress who shall remain unnamed called these jobs ‘phony,’” Obama continued. “If these people were around when Columbus set sail, they would’ve been founding members of the Flat Earth Society.”
