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.Oooops, sorry that was Obamania at his Mecca in Oregon. What should have caught my attention was use of the word "crowd".
"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.
Here's a clue for Obamania, no one I know keeps their thermostat at 72 degrees you a-hole. See, most people were conserving long before you liberal a-holes were buying arugula at Whole Foods. It's called saving money.
Now leave us alone.
