What He Said and What He Meant

What he said was:

“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.

What he meant was:

I won, damnit, and I can kick the thermostat up to whatever I want.

You on the other hand, can do better. Yes, you can.

That’s leadership.

Frankly, I’m just happy he’s jumping on the global warming bandwagon. We could use a little bump in temperatures around these parts; it’s been cold as hell lately.
