President Barack Obama compared GOP rivals who oppose his energy plans to the Spanish and Italian people who doubted Christopher Columbus’s belief that the world was round, saying that they would have been in the “flat earth society” in Columbus’s days.

He also compared his opponents to the critics of the television and the automobile, in their opposition to using alternative sources of energy.

The New York Daily News reports:

“If some of these folks were around when Columbus set sail, they probably would have been founding members of the Flat Earth Society,” Obama quipped.

“Maybe they would have agreed with one of the pioneers of the radio who apparently said, ‘Television won’t last. It’s a flash in the pan.’

“Or one of Henry Ford’s advisors who was quoted saying, ‘The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only…a fad.’ I can’t prove this, but I do not think that man got the promotion he was looking for,” Obama said.

All of the options – whether more drilling or increasing gas milage for cars to cut consumption – take time, Obama said.
