Obama’s hypocracy

Ralph Reiland had a great piece in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review about Obama’s hypocrisy.

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” he proclaimed. “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.”

By Obama’s definition of U.S. “leadership,” we get a seat at the table with the world planners if we bow to their demands in terms of what we buy and how we live, if we downsize in accordance with their centralized planning, if we admit our gluttonous faults and send reparations for all the effluents and global warming that our materialistic successes have caused over the past century.

At the White House, however, it’s a different picture. Instead of guilt, global consciousness and keeping the thermostat at an Earth-friendly 60 degrees, it seems that Obama likes it hot at the executive mansion.

“The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket,” reported The New York Times on Jan. 29. “There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.”

“He’s from Hawaii, OK?” explained Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Al Gore should calculate how many extra polar bears are likely to drown if Obama keeps it hot enough for four years to grow orchids in all 132 rooms of the White House, plus the 35 bathrooms.

It’s the same with food. We’re supposed to cut back while Obama is jetting in Wagyu steaks from Japan. The good stuff, the result of cattle bred for generations to be genetically predisposed to intense marbling, goes for $300 a pound.

And NO, I didn’t spell hypocrisy wrong in the title. Hypocracy is what we are living under. It’s a government full of hypocrites.
