Obama Claims Iran Not a "Serious Threat" to the US | Main | Heballah, Winning Hearts and Minds the World Over
May 19, 2008

Obama: "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."

Why not? That's Obama's plan for Iran -- ratification by inaction. Why can't "other countries" offer us the same deal?

Isn't it strange that Obama's already negotiating away a substantial part of the US economy without even having sat down to "talk" with his partners in compromise?

He's already conceding major points to the rather-unthreatening Chicken Little alarmists of Brussels.... I'm sure he'll be so much tougher with the mad mullahs of Iran.

Thanks to merle, via Drudge.

Shocker of the Day: Obama drove a Hemi V-8 sedan before someone noticed, and only after charges of hypocrisy were made did he switch to something a bit less carbon footprintish?

Gee, I never saw that coming.

Aftershocks: Slublog offers more examples of the sacrifices Obama urges on non-millionaire Americans but is unwilling to make himself.

And yet he was one of the many Democratic candidates who admitted to using a private jet to get to a debate: Video here.

And to get to the Virgin Islands: Note the vehicles used to transport him to the hotel.

Perhaps Keith Olbermann will offer a spittlenacious indictment of Obama for refusing to sacrifice anything for the War on Terror. At least Bush gave up golf, which Olbermann found so offensive he practically had a stroke. If giving up golf is trivial, how does giving up nothing at all strike him?

Schism? Charlie Rangel, who drives expensive leased cars that, for reasons that escape me, you're paying for, might have a problem with Obama on this issue.

Or maybe not. We all know it's just "the little people," who barely have carbon footprints at all, who are expected to sacrifice for the sake of the environment and a more equitable distribution of the world's wealth. The wealthy and powerful are too busy imposing sacrifices on everyone else to do any sacrificing themselves.

Thanks to TopSecretK9.
