Ed Driscoll Leading by Example, Then and Now

Quote:
Candidate Barack Obama, May of 2008:

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.
President Obama, July 17, 2010, as reported by the Maine’s Morning Sentinel newspaper:

“Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.”

As the Professor notes, “I don’t want to hear one goddamn word about my carbon footprint.”

Related: “Lobster for everyone” in the First Family, Matt Drudge writes, as “Obamas continue busy Maine holiday.”

Agreed. A true Leader would do the very same thing he asks of their followers.

What a load of steaming dog****.

The dog came on a plane with staffers not all by himself.

Obama did not say “I don’t want to hear one goddamn word about my carbon footprint.”


This is how you people opperate, lies and more lies.

The right is completely bankrupt.

No chance in hell this was not by design. Is there another shop in the entire country using that logo?

Yet more evidence that TM is functionally illiterate.

The article quotes "The Professor" as saying “I don’t want to hear one goddamn word about my carbon footprint.” (The Professor is Glenn Reynolds from Instapundit, which is easily determined by following the links).

BTW did the dog travel in the plane by himsself or with staff members?

The whole damned thing is a lie.
