President Barack Obama embraced global warming as a way to attack his Republican rivals for the 2012 election at a fundraiser in San Jose Sunday night. “You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change,” Obama said, referring to Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX). Wildfires, fueled by global warming pollution, have wracked Perry’s state. In contrast, Obama argued he supports a “fact-based” America.

Update

The Perry campaign expressed outrage that President Obama would call out the governor for his rejection of scientific reality. “It’s outrageous President Obama would use the burning of 1,500 homes, the worst fires in state history, as a political attack,” Perry spokesman Mark Miner told ABC News.
