“You Can’t Keep Your Homes At 72 Degrees” But I Can!

29 01 2009

I understand.  When you’re this jacked up on hope, it’s hard to be responsible.

An interesting piece in the NYT contrasts the “early to bed, early to rise-and-wear-a-damned-suit-and-tie-to-my-meetings,” Dubya, with the more casual-and-slightly-night-owlish, Obama.

The short-term memory NYT goes on, “He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Ah…so soon they forget, Obama says, “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,”

Oh yea, and, Malkin just posted the Obamas threw a hot party last nite after doubling the nation’s debt, where 100$ per serving wagyu steaks were served.

So far, other countries are just saying, “OK” as riots have not yet broken out at this late hour.

I emailed the president:

Dear President Obama:

After reading a recent article in the New York Times I was amazed to hear that you keep the White House “warm enough to grow orchids in there.”
I realize that you are from Hawaii and thus your sensitivity to the cold is increased, but this is hypocritical. You famously told Americans that we couldn’t drive SUV’s and keep our homes at 72 degrees and expect the world to be ok with that.
How do you justify keeping the White House so warm?
