Regular readers know that I’m neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I’m a Constitutionalist and both parties have been off that reservation for most of my lifetime. I’m a card carrying Libertarian. But I’m also a realist and there’s a better chance that a asteroid the size of Texas will hit planet earth and kill us all in the next thirty seconds, than a Libertarian will be elected President in 2012.
I particularly loathe the Democrat Party because so many of them are, IMHO, enemies of the State because of their disdain for the U.S. Constitution. Many are also the the biggest hypocrites that I have ever met. Obama can’t give a speech without reading the word GREEN from his teleprompter. So I find this information from the ultra liberal New York Times to be interesting. This is the typical progressive, “do I say not as I do” party line.
Apparently, Obama thinks that the only way he can stay slim and trim (besides smoking cigarettes) is to fly his personal trainer from Chicago to Washington regularly to work him out! According to Ashley Parker of the NYT, Cornell McClellan flies to Washington EVERY week to work with both Mr. & Mrs. Obama and some White House staffers. McClellan says he sees the Obamas two to four times a week.
David Axelrod says that he has lost 25 pounds under McClellan’s watch. Well, bully F’n for you. I was a fat bastard bureaucrat before I retired from the government in 2008. Somehow, I managed to lose 52 pounds in less than a year by eating right and exercising on my own.
It seems these environmentally conscious Democrats don’t give a rat’s ass if it cost 50,000 pounds of carbon emissions for one fat staffer to lose 25 pounds and for Mrs. Obama to keep from gaining another twenty five.
Last July the Hypocrite in Chief announced that he wanted federal workers to cut down on business travel and commuting by car, in order to reduce emissions produced by the federal government. Michelle Obama’s support for locally produced food is steeped in environmental concerns.
The message here is very clear. If you’re an average federal employee or everyday taxpayer, you need to watch your carbon footprint and make sacrifices for the good of “green stock” owners like Al Gore and hypocrites like Obama and most other progressives. If you’re part of the progressive ruling class, it’s ok to fly your trainer in from Chicago every week to keep your your wife’s ass from getting as as big as a Volkswagen? Pah-leeeze!
