Do as I demand, not as I do, because I know better

Barack Obama on the campaign trail:
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.

Barack Obama in the White House:
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.”

Because being a liberal means never having to say that you're sorry. It also means never being called a hypocrite, regardless of the size of the gap between the public pronouncements and the private behavior.

Anyone think that the US media is going to "speak truth to power," now that the most liberal man to ever win the Presidency is the "power"? No, I don't think so either...
