The Audacity of Hypocrisy: Barack Obama

Posted: Feb 03, 2009 2:06 PM
We all know about the scandals involving taxes and cabinet appointees, we were told during the campaign he was going to change Washington when in fact he has simply embraced the Democrats way of doing business for years.

Now, we have learned that the climate change and the need to sacrifice is yet another ‘by the waste-side’ idea of the campaign apparently. According to FOX News, “President Obama lectured voters during the campaign about the need to make sacrifices for the environment. But now it's warm and toasty in the White House -- so much so that aides have likened it to a tropical hot house -- and Obama is under fire for turning up the heat.”

You see, Obama likes things warm and who cares about what we’re told to do – he’s the President and he can be hypocritical.

"It's stunning hypocrisy," said Christopher Horner (no relation), a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and author of two books critical of global warming activists. "Obama spins the dial up, takes off his coat and seeks to mandate that we turn the dial down," he said.

“Obama's aides had a simpler explanation. Though he's spent more than 20 years in Chicago, the president was born in Hawaii. And so he "likes it warm" in the Oval Office, said Chief of Staff David Axelrod. "You could grow orchids in there," he told the New York Times.”

Hey I was born in Honolulu too, but my thermostat is set at 65…come on Mr. President, join me.
