President Obama: Would confer with "other countries" to determine U.S. thermostat settings

Not to mention whether we should be able to drive SUVs, and how much we should eat!

"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," Obama said. (Link.)

Soooo ... how "isn't that going to happen," President Obama? Will the government decide for us (or the UN, if we ask those "other countries" what they want) what temperature our house should be in the winter? Summer? Will a sensor go off at the FBI and they'll then show up at our door?

Will SUVs be forbidden on American roads? Will cops on teh beat have one more thing to be on the lookout for?

Will Americans be issued ration tickets for food to ensure we don't "eat as much as we want"?

This unscripted quote is the one that will kill his hopes of winning the general election.

If I were McCain, I would play this endlessly on Youtube, news, ads, etc.

I agree with Rush Limbaugh and the other conservative pundits who say that electing B.O. will serve as Jimmy Carter's second term. AS someone old enough to remember those four years in the wilderness, the last thing I want to see is this socialist in what Bill Clinton called the Oral Office.
