The So Called Eco-Friendly President Barack “GREEN” Obama Celebrates Earth Day by Burning 53,000 Gallons of Jet Fuel
HEY BARACK … IT AIN’T EASY BEING GREEN. Especially when one doesn’t even try. The Obama hypocrisy continues.
President Barack Obama celebrated Earth Day why burning 53,000 gallons of jet fuel while telling us “little people” that we must sacrifice and be “green”. However, the do as I say, not as I do President tells us all to get fuel efficient hybrids and electric cars so that he can fly around on our dime. Its not as though Barack Obama was flying to see the US troops or conducting business of the United States, Obama burned this fuel so that he could conduct fund raising. What are the odds that Obama will be buying some carbon credits for All Gore? Of course he could not be reached for comment, rumor has it he was on his private jet as well.
President Obama declared today’s 41st annual Earth Day proof of America’s ecological and conservation spirit—then completed a three-day campaign-style trip logging 10,666 miles on Air Force One, eating up some 53,300 gallons at a cost of about $180,000. And that doesn’t include the fuel consumption of his helicopter, limo, or the 29 other vehicles that travel with that car.
“Green” is for thee, not for me. if it is not bad enough that Obama made no effort to conserve anything on earth day, including the hot air from his mouth by having the audacity to preach to the peons about Earth Day. Of course Obama’s stewardship and sacrifice was what exactly?
Obama proclaimed: “For over 40 years, our nation has come together on Earth Day to appreciate and raise awareness about our environment, natural heritage, and the resources upon which generations of Americans have depended. Healthy land and clean water and air are essential to the health of our communities and wildlife. Earth Day is an opportunity to renew America’s commitment to preserving and protecting the state of our environment through community service and responsible stewardship.”
Over at Michelle Malkin.com, they remind us of just how concerned Obama was with “Earth Day” with pics of litter from his 2009 inauguration. Aptly stated by Jammie Wearing Fool, let’s hope that we can make Obama’s words come to fruition about trading in gas guzzling, inefficient, burdens, namely Barack Obama in 2012.
Wait it gets better, not to be outdone by her jet fuel guzzling husband, Michelle Obama cancelled her Earth Day event due to a light drizzle. Oh those crazy ”GREEN” Obama’s. I wonder if she would have cancelled a vacation for the same reason?
