One can only wonder how much coal it takes to light those trees, now that Obama has “flexed” his muscles and made coal a bad thing. You can just see the electric meter spinning wildly when they turn on the switch at the White House.
“Woo Hoo! We be burnin’ some electricity today, Michelle. Better get on the phone to Boehner and get those taxes raised. Someone’s gotta pay for all these trees.”
That meter might not have had to spin as fast if Ronnie Reagan hadn't taken down those Jimmy Carter solar panels from the White House roof...but then again it was "Morning in America" and he and Nancy didn't like the look or the message those panels represented.
Good try !

Huntsman was everything I liked about the old time Republicans.
Pro private property rights,
Por REASONABLE gun rights,
Informed and intellegent on foreign policy issues,
Pro business, but NOT a zealot on deregulation,
Careful on fiscal issues, but not an anti-tax kook,
Solid on defense but not a war monger,
NOT someone that will engage in the dog whistles on race that other Republicans are becoming famous for,
In short a candidate that would attract the vast center of the country and draw support from both conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans.
A Huntsman candidacy would have given Chicago fits ! But the lunatics have taken over the party in the primary process and while they EVENTUALLY chose the second most electable candidate of the remaining Republicans in the race, they succeeded in FIRST making him unpalatable and unacceptable for the majority of Americans, by making him disavow any and all previous positions he had ever taken that didn't conform to their radical ideology.
Now it appears that the party has decided that the loss wasn't the message the party has adopted but the messanger carrying it ! This is the ideal position for them to take...if they wish to keep losing.
A Huntsman candidacy would have given us a white Obama.

Perhaps you forget that the margin was very slim. Obama almost lost it.

That system is still working today, but all it can do is provide hot water for a cafeteria. Don't think it would have put a dent in the Christmas light consumption.

Also, were you aware that the EVIL George Bush had solar put back? No, I didn't think so.

"The WhiteHouse had 167 solar energy panels placed atop a maintenance buildingoutside the residence. On two other buildings -- an adjoining maintenance building and the president's cabana -- systems wereinstalled that will help heat the water for, among other uses, thepresidential pool and spa."

"The White House and the National Park Service, which oversee theprojects, could not say how much power the systems are generating -- orhow much money they are saving the public.

With Washington's climate and the pitch of the building roofs considered less than ideal, the output of any system would be limited, said one of the project's managers."

"I think the symbolic nature of this exceeds the actual kilowatts produced," said SEIA spokesman Michael Paranzino.

I'll bet you also weren't aware that Bush uses solar power on his ranch in Texas, did you?

Whatever, you missed the point. Obama is living an oppulent life while most Americans are trying to get by.

He's sticking it in our faces.

Here's an idea. why not make him King? He's living like one.

Fine "Omen" ! It isn't in my best interest to provide the Republicans with suggestions on how to win elections. BUT if a Republican couldn't win this time with the economy in the shape it is in, the country running huge deficits, unemployment high, and a president that wasn't that popular within his own party.....well just keep on keepin on !

Well, thank you for that info. I WAS unaware that a system had been re-installed. Washington is not the BEST place for solar panels, but every little bit helps.
I remember when Carter put up those original panels, turned down the thermostat in the White House and held a press conference in a sweater. The press and Republicans made him look like a fool...I had voted against him and for Jerry Ford, but I found that I had a soft spot for the message Carter was trying to promote, and the kind of a man he was... probably the most moral man to occupy the White House in my lifetime.

The $4 million cost is estimated from the round-trip flight to Hawaii from Washington, D.C. via Air Force One, the transport of equipment needed for Obama, and travel and housing costs of Obama’s security team and staff. As Chicago has learned with the presidents visits to his hometown, local taxpayers pay for local police and other services.

The bulk of the expense is said to be the $3,271,622 cost of transporting the president on Air Force One. The cost of transporting presidential limos, helicopters and other "support" equipment to Hawaii and back to Washington, D.C. costs $258,000. Housing for security personnel and staff amounts to $176,400.

At this point, the Obama family vacation has not been officially announced, but plans are being made for the trip.

The primary source of this article is the Hawaii Reporter

and I was incorrect on Ms. Obama's staff. I believe it is 24

Exactly! This is why unemployment, debt, poverty, government corruption, massive business failure, financial distress and hopelessness have completely exploded!

Marxists and socialists are rapidly gaining ground!

Much more to come!

Last year, while in campaign mode, the White House was decorated with a paltry 28 Christmas trees. Freed from the restraints of having to look like they care, the Obama’s ordered up DOUBLE that amount this year. That’s right folks – 54 living trees gave up their lives to brighten up Obamahouse.
Apparently they LIKE living the lives of 1%ers.
"We have 54 trees in the White House," an excited Michelle Obama proudly told visitors the other day. "54! That’s a lot of trees."
Hmmm. That’s also 54 less carbon dioxide consumers.
And they weren’t those little six footers you buy at Walmart. These things were magnificent specimens hand picked by someone they flew all over the place to get them.
Carbon foot print? We don’t have no steenkin’
carbon foot print. We have new found “flexibility”.
One can only wonder how much coal it takes to light those trees, now that Obama has “flexed” his muscles and made coal a bad thing. You can just see the electric meter spinning wildly when they turn on the switch at the White House.
“Woo Hoo! We be burnin’ some electricity today, Michelle. Better get on the phone to Boehner and get those taxes raised. Someone’s gotta pay for all these trees.”
What’s even better is that the First Family won’t even be there for Christmas – or whatever holiday they’re into. They’re going to Hawaii from Dec. 17 through Jan. 6. That's about a 50% longer holiday vacation than last year.
Must be nice to have more flexibility.
The White House released this today:
Sorry about you regular saps. Stupid is as stupid does. Thanks for giving me the flexibility I deserve. Now, get to work and change the law so I can be ruler for life. I kinda like all this unearned rich stuff. Keep those campaign donations coming in.

The Christmas Trees have traditionally been donated to the White House and I doubt that this year is any different.

The White house does not change with each President, except sometimes, the Chef. Bush, for instance, wanted a Chef that was better at preparing Mexican Food. Aside from that, the same Staff has worked there for many years and through many different Presidents. It's a Lifetime job that takes speciality training. So, the same Staff was there when Obama became President and the same Staff will be there when he leaves the Presidency! And BTW, Obama nor Michelle changed Chefs, either.
You would already know these things if you had the slightest idea about anything concerning the Presidency, like most Americans already know except for you Teapublicans, who act like you just got off the Immigrant Boat, yesterday...and know just about as much about your own Government and how it's run! Keep on watching Fox Fake News...see how much more ignorant they can make you!

With this many trees, Barry and Michelle can invite even more lewd, gangster rappers to their White House Christmas party. Just imagine, while group wardrobe malfunctions are taking place on the bump & grind dance floor, a copy of Obama's do not resuscitate law can be placed in the manger to be worshiped...instead of the greatet gift the world was ever to receive.
