imagePeople for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), strident in its criticism of meat-eating Al Gore, are silent on Obama’s spending binge on wagyu steak.
And the Obama silence is equally deafening from the Live Earth Concert crowd, who acknowledge that not eating meat is “the single most effective thing”  (italics theirs) you can do to reduce your climate change impact, and whose official handbook Gore helped organize.

“Just in time for Earth day, Gore will see himself plastered on posters across the Internet, an embarrassing fate for a guy who claims to be saving the world from global warming/climate change.” (Gorging Gore “addicted” to steak, April 22, 2008).

Gore’s “addiction” to steak and sausage found him billboard cartoon fame as gorging Gore, complete with pot belly and chicken drumstick in PETA’s “Too CHICKEN To Go Vegetarian?” publicity stint. 
The take-no-prisoners animal rights organization launched www.offsetalgore.com, which is active to the present day.
“The key to stemming the tide of climate change is to make personal changes that will help reduce global warming,” PETA said in a media communique.  “So it’s a bit of a mystery why Gore continues to eat animals and ignores the overwhelming evidence that eating meat is the number one cause of global warming.”
Gore, was further publicly lectured in PETA’s reminder that “A major United Nation Study determined that the meat industry generates 40 percent more greenhouse-gas emission than all of the cars, trucks, SUVs, ships and planes in the world, combined.”
At least Gore kept his steak and sausage on his own private dinner table.
President Barack Obama, on the other hand, fed his steak to hundreds of uncomplaining Washington Pooh-bahs.
“Can the Obama administration be any more tone deaf? (michellemalkin.com, Jan. 29, 2009).  “After pushing his $1.1 trillion Generational Theft act of 2009 through the House last night, the White House apparently decided to throw itself a swank cocktail party.  According to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the menu included alcoholic beverages (vodka martinis are an Obama favorite, reportedly) and wagyu steak.
“Yeah, “wagyu steak,” $100 per serving delicacy.  I had to look it up too.

“On the heels of the most expensive inaugural celebration in American history and passage of a trillion-dollar spending binge that will saddle future generations with unprecedented debt, perhaps President Obama might consider cutting back on such indulgences.

“Or is the White House exempt from “shared sacrifice,” Mr. President?”
If it is meat-eating miscreants that they want to expose, PETA may want to consider a new candidate for this Earth Day’s center shot.
Earth to PETA President Ingrid Newkirk: Is PETA too CHICKEN to notice President Obama’s “addiction” to wagyu steak, or is PETA sleepwalking in synch with the cult-like Obamamania?
