Reader D.G. sends along this incisive comment regarding The Sainted One’s abundant hypocrisy where his personal comforts are concerned:

“The new president’s propensity to crank up the heat certainly appears at odds with his declaration last year, “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.’

This blatant hypocrisy is a side of Obama I hadn’t really seen up till now. Put this together with the fact his education secretary ran a public school system in Chicago that Obama refused to put his own kids into, and the parallels with Soviet leaders who could shop at special stores stocked with Western goods get mighty uncomfortable.”
