Just a few days after the November election, Democratic strategist Mark Penn said out loud what many of his peers were thinking.

Penn told Chris Matthews on his MSNBC show Hardballthat President Obama needed the kind of Reichstag moment that Bill Clinton enjoyed after the Democrat’s electoral drubbing in 1994.

“Daley’s appointment reaffirms President Obama’s war on fossil fuels. As head of JPMorgan’s corporate social responsibility department, Daley lead the charge to raise the price of fossil fuels by advocating a climate change policy that is hostile to carbon-based energy – coal, gasoline and natural gas,” said Tom Borelli Ph.D., director of the National Center’s Free Enterprise Project.
