Obama thinks that we need the approval of other countries before heating our homes to 72 degrees

From Obama's speech in Oregon on Sunday:

"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. . . .

McCain wants a tax to limit CO2 emissions. Obama wants a higher tax, but the tax is really besides the point because if we are willing to pay the tax he then wants regulations to stop us.

Time to buy a hair shirt and a mule, Obama's change is the 19th century coming back.

It's all part of that ObamaNation Grand Socialist Plan - he/they know better than the common folks, who have just too many rights for Liberal Intellects like Barack Hussein Obama...

Obama is a piece of work, but what is really disturbing is that there are so many out there who can't distinguish between an objectively real world and a world of hopes and dreams.

Victor Davis Hanson has said several times that he thinks that Obama's going to lose hugely, and follow McGovern into the netherworld of history.

I think he's spot-on right, but I won't sleep particularly well until the general election is over.

JFWIW — I think McCain is running an absolutely brilliant campaign and is the perfect candidate to match against Obama during a time of self-imposed Conservative weakness.

McCain has staked out the central left and is staying just to the right of Obama. He's strong on national defense, believes in AGW, wants to close Gitmo, wants to rule out "coercive interrogation" etc.

While I abhor many of his (McCain's) positions (AGW, immigration, McCain/Feingold, Gitmo, coercive interrogation, etc.) he's one hell of a lot better than Obama.

And if you have doubts, consider judicial appointments, and imagine John Edwards or someone of his ilk being nominated for a position on the Supreme Court.

As far as I'm concerned, we're voting in favor of the better of 2 groups of judges and a robust national security effort.

And for my part, I'm not going withhold my vote and kill the barely acceptable McCain because he's imperfect, and thus help Obama, who's rapidly convincing me that he's the worst of all candidates.
