Ah yes, "Do as I say, not as I do"

But as The Messiah himself might say, "That's not leadership."

Indeed, The Messiah said exactly that a few months ago when addressing global warming:

“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.”

Now to today:

The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Guess what -- I like it warm, too. Thus, my thermostat will be set to whatever the hell I like. Got that, Mr. Obama? I might'a felt a bit differently if you practiced what you preached (y'know, you were supposed to be all about "change we can believe in," or some other such ridiculous nonsense), but screw it. Just like Al Gore, you're just another "do as say, not as I do" liberal.

Hell, at least Jimmy Carter practiced what he preached when he told us to turn down the thermostat.

"Change Hypocrisy you can believe in."

I thought he could warm himself by his glow. Oh well.

The ultimate in hypocrisy. If this had been a Republican he would have been burned at the stake. At least he/she would have been warm.

Oh, and then there was the massive heating apparatus that kept everybody warm and toasty on the inaugural podium. What was the carbon footprint for that baby? And wasn't this the guy who was chiding the DC schools for their snow day, bragging about how Chicago doesn't close schools for a measly half inch of snow?
