It's not what a man says that matters

It's what he does. There's your window to his soul.

Via Insty, the American Thinker posts this:

It made me think of this.

Wouldst thou have men speak good of thee? Speak good of them. And when thou hast learned to speak good of them, try to do good unto them, and thus thou will reap in return their speaking good of thee.

- Epictetus, ca 120 AD

Go see Treacher's little photo essay on this- I'm guessing you'll like it.

I don't know how to link in comments, but here's the link:

Oh. My. Lord.

Man, that's funny.

One less blog post I have to do, because you and Treacher have done it sooner and better than I could have.

It is telling, though. The photo that is.

All I have to say is someone at the White House Press Office enjoys making the man look bad, and Obama is helping that person out...

The second picture on the site (of Obama and Biden in shirtsleeves and the guests in coats), after a few seconds of thought isn't so bad. I can well believe that both of the guests would have declined to take off their coats, and Obama is famous for not wearing his coat.

Obama is the prow of our ship, always looking and leading forward, He doesn't need to look back.
(He makes such good Marxist copy.)
