Do as I say:
“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.
Not as I do:
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.”
Say it with me: shared sacrifice!
Thanks to Scott Jacobs and Pablo.
P.S. All hail that flinty Chicago toughness!
P.P.S. Looks like about a million bloggers published similar posts today, well before I did. (That’s what you get for working during the day!) Oh well . . . when something’s obvious, it’s obvious.
