Obama - be ashamed of your lifestyle
Posted by: McQ on Monday, May 19, 2008

This is what someone like Obama calls "leadership":
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.
There's no leadership in earning your lifestyle? If we can afford it, why shouldn't it "happen"?

A perfect example of "global" class warfare which should make a latter day Marxist smile.

You know, I think we’ll have the thermostat set at 71 this season...

Just because. :)

He’s like a baseball pitcher who throws one pitch, a slider, that fools batters early in the season, but then word gets around even as his arm gets a little tired and he loses "a foot" off his pitch, and then it starts going into the seats.

It started going into the seats in Ohio, then in Pennsylvania it was going into the upper deck, and in West Virginia it started going out of the park.

The hitters are taking batting practice on Obama.

That’s why his fans in the media tried to divert attention from the blowout in WV by pointing to the special election loss by a Republican for what should have been a safe seat in Mississippi.

Did anyone besides me notice the spectacle of calling (directly or by implication) West Virginians hillbillies and racists, but suddenly Mississippians were enlightened?

He’s not an idiot. Or at least someone behind him is not one. They very ruthlessly have pushed Obama through to this point while staying well hidden behind the curtain. He went from obscurity 4 years ago to a good chance at the Presidency. Someone knows what they are doing.

The real problem is not that he’s an idiot, its that he’s a believer. He embraces all the movements neo-marxists vector their causes through (environmentism, multiculturalism, ’blowback’).

Basically the message is that the West and especially the US got to its position through Bad Behavior. That we horde the money and world resources and never did anything of value to earn those things. At least I haven’t seen anything from Obama that would make me think he believes otherwise.

That sweater business didn’t do much for Jimmy Carter. No sale, Mr Rich Senator.

I couldn’t care less what other countries say about my lifestyle and the comfort level I choose to live in.

Hey, I’m sure that Pres. Messiah will not skimp on heat or opulence or gourmet meals when he’s in the White House. Heck, I’m sure he doesn’t skimp on heating, driving or good food for his family now.

Why is purpled ease and luxury good for him but not for me? Don’t my kids deserve a warm home also?

He’s an idiot for being a believer and all the fawning members of the population are idiots too. If he’s really not a believer but pretending to be one he’s still an idiot as well as disingenuous.

In an election where either side could have had a runaway victory with a good candidate, isn’t it amazing that they both managed to pick such terrible candidates?

This speech reminds me of Carter’s "Malaise" speech. If his presidency is anything like his rhetoric, Obama will become the black Jimmy Carter complete with wife sitting in on cabinet meetings, him bowing and scraping to all the bad actors out there on the world stage, the USA becoming the laughing-stock of the world.

Unfortunately, I see too much of this Obama-mania to trust the common voter to see through to Obama, the huckster. His rockstar image may get tarnished but the country is too full of groupies to notice. Unless he completely melts down or McCain grows an extremely healthy pair to really take him on, I see him winning in November.

The question I have is this: Does the right have a "Ronald Reagon" waiting in the wings to take this bufoon down for his second term.

Other countries get to say that I can’t own my Ford explorer?? They can have it when they peel the wheel from my cold dead hands. :)

What an ass. What sort of retard votes for a guy that spouts crap like this.

Oh yeah, MKultra would vote for him. Figures, that in itself should tell you everything you need to know.

That’s a good observation, McPhillips.

What do you think?
Are West Virginians hillbillies or are Mississippians enlightened?

After all, the GOP tried to tie Childers to Obama in this “what should have been a safe seat in Mississippi”. Yet Childers churned out a victory. This should go far for your prediction that McCain will win by ten points even if McCain sits on his hands this election, huh?

So,
Are West Virginians hillbillies or are Mississippians enlightened?

Just curious. You brought it up, what’s your explanation?

Cheers.

Whoa, or should I say, Dude.

Obama actually cautioned Americans that our overlords in other countries won’t sign off on our "eat[ing] as much as we want."

Should he happen to use that phrase "tighten the belt" — well, it won’t be just a figure of speech. Because there are those outside our borders (not to mention inside the Democratic Party) who won’t grant that coveted "OK" for anything less — or maybe more — than some real, serious, privation.

Damn, I think, is what I mean.

Geez. At this rate, we won’t need a bombshell from the nefarious Clinton secret team. We’ll just have to let Obama, his wife, and his campaign advisers keep talking.

Maybe it’s hysterical relief, now that Obama believes he is a few fingernails away from clawing his way to a winning delegate count, but it will count against him in the fall.

Slim pickings. Tom Coburn, maybe. I used to think Bill Owens had a shot, but he blew it by backing off of Colorado’s TABOR.

Sen. Obama’s motorcade consists of two SUVs and two large buses. Sen. Obama travels in one of the SUVs, while the press and members of his staff follow in the two buses.

FWIW, it’s pretty scary what you find when you search for "Obama motorcade" at YouTube, but I didn’t see a single Prius in anything I found.

I’m sitting in China right now. In an air-conditioned office (its almost freezing - maybe I need a sweater?) I just got out of a SUV after driving to a factory. The factory bought us a huge feast for lunch and the restaurant was packed.

Obama is an IDIOT. Other countries don’t care about this stuff. Only hair shirt leftists in Europe care. In Asia, people actually RESENT the hair shirt leftists who while already owning a car, etc., want to deprive the poor asians the chance for the same.

Some facts for Obama:

China: 26.3 million air-conditioning units sold last year alone.
China: fastest growing market for cars
China: the price of food is going up because the Chinese are eating more, especially more MEAT.
China: selling us as much stuff as we can buy, i.e. encouraging our consumption.

There. All three of his points slammed to the ground. You could probably insert India, Indonesia, or any other large growing country and debunk his theory.

Being a ’typical white female’ I don’t need to be told how to live my life. Obama is a dictator in the making.

That is showing leadership/setting an example for a parent not a nation. However, if we were begging for some help but not establishing priorities that would be a correct attitude.

Now one could argue that point since the president went to the ME and asked for more oil production to cut the price of gasoline for Americans, but they would still be missing the point. We have the resources to become independent of non-North American oil, however our leadership and a small minority of Americans who are environmental hardliners are preventing us from drilling for oil in ANWR or off many of our seashores, using Canadian tar sands oil or a coal to fuel process for our the government’s needs, and extracting oil from shale. They have now turned against ethanol. What will they support other than trying to force Americans to restrict their standard of living? That I won’t support and at some point most Americans will realize that our living standards are being held hostage by people who think they know what is best for us.
