It was just a little news blurb tonight, one of those “fluff” fillers intended to make us feel all warm and fuzzy.
The President took his wife on a promised “date night” to New York City tonight. Dinner at a swanky restaurant and then a Broadway show; nothing different than what millions of husbands do for their wives every weekend. Or used to do, anyway.
But those other millions of husbands aren’t preaching to everyone else that “climate change” is a Big Serious Matter and then turning around and leaving yet another big carbon footprint just for fun. Those millions of other husbands aren’t preaching fiscal responsibility and then going off to have that fun on someone else’s dime.
Words mean something all right.
And the word that comes to mind is: hypocrite.
