Yuval, that Obama quote on ceding U.S. thermostat sovereignty to the EU deserves to be savored in full:
“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.
So “leadership” means finding out what other countries want from America and then doing it. Good luck with that.
