The World According to Obama:

Obama’s speech in Oregon on Saturday was as interesting for what he said, but more interesting from what he didn’t say;  

He said, “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, that’s not leadership.  That’s not going to happen.”

What he didn’t say was that the implied message is that whatever “the other countries in the world” say is “OK” therefore must be the determining factor in what is done here in the United States.  He goes further to imply that conforming our actions to what is expected by “the other countries” is leadership!  This sounds more like follow the rest of the sheep to me.

This kind of talk is ignorant at best.  What he is really saying is that the United States is not a soveriegn nation and that the expectations of the world community are more important than what is good for the United States. 

What he also failed to say is what measures he would take to insure that your own home thermostat isn’t set at 72 degrees and how his government would determine what car you choose to drive. 

Liberals are at the heart level control freaks.  They want to control the car you drive, what your thermostat settings are and then the next step is controlling how much you eat and what you are allowed to purchase at the grocery store.

Liberals are also hypocrites.  We can’t explore for oil on U.S. soil and God forbid we should disturb the mating habits of the Polar Bears, but they are quite content to call for the Saudi’s to increase production and exploration on their soil.  Al Gore can cry about the need for all of “us” to limit our lifestyles while he is free to live large and way beyond the means of the rest of us.

The Democrats love to call for “Change” but are afraid to plainly tell what exactly they want to change and how they intend to do it.  This is because once it is apparent to everyone how they go about effecting “change”, they know that the general populace will want none of it.  If it were otherwise, they would proudly proclaim it from the rooftops.
