(CNN) – Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, fired up the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday morning, declaring President Obama has "lost his mojo."

"He had more mojo than any president that I remember when he was inaugurated a year and a month ago. But now, the master-mesmerizer has lost his mojo," King said to rousing applause. "And if we stand our ground as constitutional conservatives, he's not going to get it back."

King spent much of his fiery speech attacking Obama's efforts at health care as well as Democratic cap-and-trade proposals. On cap-and-trade, King suggested the recent snowfall across the country is the latest reason to doubt those who warn about climate change.

"The liberals, the environmentalists, the extremists, the Al Gores of the world were wrong on the science. Today, we know it," King said. "Sorry Al. But I have got a scoop shovel for you if you want to come anywhere in the 50 states in America. For the first time in the history of keeping records, there is snowfall on the ground in all 50 states. It's tough to make an argument when the evidence is all around us with a snowy white wonder in a crystal cathedral."
