So I’m assuming that Obama won’t use an SUV as president, correct? And Congressional Democrats, including the chauffeured Nancy Pelosi, are all prepared to drive around in Priuses, right? Or are only certain people required to give stuff up?
Pitching his message to Oregon’s environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to “lead by example” on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.
“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,” Obama said.
“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.
Obama, for the record, drives an SUV hybrid. His previous car of choice was the Chrysler 300, but he gave that up when his eco-hypocrisy was exposed. Speaker Pelosi, another global warming alarmist, immediately demanded a large plane capable of a non-stop trip to California when she took office. She’s been known to get around town in a 2005 Chevy Tahoe.
Perhaps Obama should concentrate on his own habits, as well as those of his dear friends, before telling Americans they can’t keep their homes at 72 degrees.
