Will the World Be OK with Obama Oval Office at 72 Degrees?

As Obama himself explained in 2008 (from Hot Air),

“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.

Well, never mind. Obama likes his office very warm and too bad if you don't like it. As David Axelrod says,

“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.”

Once again, ordinary Americans should never do such a thing. But for our privileged elite, anything is acceptable.

Wagyu steak as a celebration to his pork barrel bill passing last night. Wagyu steak goes for about $100/serving. Apparently he's not so much into shared sacrifice anymore.

Hey, if he stops preaching about what we can and cannot eat, drive, earn, drink, or where to keep the thermostat, then I have no problem with those same activities for him either.
