Vote For Me And I’ll Make You….Err….Cold, Poor and Hungry!

The US Election is (pun intended) warming up nicely, with Democratic Nominee hopeful Barak Obama trying an….interesting new rallying call.
Pitching his message to Oregon's environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to "lead by example" on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.

"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.
Didn’t American politicians once think promising ‘three acres and a mule’ was a vote winner?

Perhaps Obama should try that tack instead, it might prove even more popular with the global warming fanatics!

As I understand the Obamamessiah's argument, it's that the US should show leadership by giving everyone else a veto on America's way of life. How about the rest of the world learning from a country where everyone has loads to eat, warm houses and nice cars ?
