Obama: Americans Must Do As World Says

I know Obama is getting record crowds, estimated as high as 75,000 in Portland, OR.  But is curiosity the same thing as support?  Are these massive crowds going to vote en masse?

Obama Nets Huge Crowd

Obama is a draw, but is he selling liberalism like never before or are liberals simply coming out like never before? Given some of his more ludicrous statements one has to wonder how many Americans are ready for his hard core liberal stances:

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.

SInce when is leadership kowtowing down to the world’s biases (usually generated by a malicious and liberal news media)?  America is not killing the planet.  As I noted in another post if you look at where the global warming IS, it is not over the American continents – it is over Asia where most of the human population lives.  


What Obama is selling is not leadership.  He is selling out America to international opinion.
Are we to gain permission from China or India on what our allocation should be for using our SUVs? Are we suppose to get permission from the UN as to when and how long we can set our thermostats to 72°? This is ridiculous.
I want to note that over at Gallup, as Obama’s lead against Clinton rises, he is going nowhere against McCain (who also believes in the myths of Global Warming).
McCain is going to use the Bush approach, which entails basically saying if you must believe in this then we’ll let the market decide how much CO2 each person and company will reduce. If people need some feel-good efforts to pretend they are doing something then fine – it is free country. But Obama’s plan to let the UN and World Court and public opinion dictate to American’s what they can or cannot do is just not going to win votes.
This is Obama showing off is inexperience again.

    And having the UN come here to talk about racism? BRING IT ON. One of the world’s most abusive groups thinks they can come here and tell us ANYTHING?

    Get lost. But then again, you are just a great motivator for our heartland troops.

    And Mark Lamont, we are not going to be called on the carpet BY ANYONE, you jerk. And that goes for you, too, Barack Hussein Obama.

    Anti-American agenda, pure and simple. This is war. Serious war.

    The reason Barack Hussein Obama wants us out of Iraq is because he
    wants to hand the islamists a stunning victory. It is not complicated.
    He cannot say what he really wants, US out of the Middle East entirely,
    the destruction of Israel, and the islamic conquest of The West, because
    that would break his taqiyya and it is not yet time to pounce.

    Obama is still an islamist in hiding. He will not drop the taqiyya easily.
    Steps along his road to one world sharia government will include letting
    the islamists take back over in Iraq (he already said that fears of a
    genocide happening in Iraq do not constitute a reason to remain),
    allowing Iran and Syria to get workable atomic bombs, allowing the
    destruction of Israel, and then very gradually suggesting to the Americans
    that the way out of their difficulties is to embrace islam. Dar es Salam,
    I believe they call it.

    That’s his plan. Even the Left don’t get it. They think they’ll be allowed
    to keep their alternate living arrangements, their drugs and music,
    the crappy new world wines, and all the flowers of protest. In word NO.
    They won’t be allowed any of that.

    Imagine for a moment if President Bush became a muslim, then renounced
    it and went back to Christianity. Every islamist in the world would brand
    him an apostate and insist on the islamic punishment for apostasy,
    which is quite severe indeed. Not a peep out for Obama, though he was
    born a muslim and raised in madrassas but now claims to have converted
    to Christianity. That makes him an apostate. But it’s quiet out there –
    too quiet.

    One part Kerry UN permission slip plus one part Carter appeasement mentality plus one part Gore global warming stupidity and you end up still with only a partial picture on this empty suit.
