Heat as I say, Not as I Do
Published on January 30 2009
A piece in yesterday's New York Times featured a photo of an Oval Office meeting last week during which President Obama had removed his suit jacket..... You see, the reason the president --- and others -- were jacketless was simple: "Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat." After all, it's freezing cold out there, and as White House senior advisor David Axelrod reminded us, "He's from Hawaii, O.K," adding that "He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there." via American Thinker Blog: Obama: Heat as I say, Not as I Do.But then again, when we want to pick on those soft wussy Southern types who cancel school at the first sniff of a snowflake, we can always go back to our tough Chicago roots:
"My children's school was canceled today," Obama said, speaking to reporters before a meeting with business leaders. "Because of what? Some ice? . . . We're going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town."Of course, when your children are delivered to their private school via limo, it may make a difference in how you look at the situation. And of course, heating that drafty old White House is a must. Wouldn't want to be caught dead wearing a sweater. Or get caught dead, period. The Hope/Change can begin any time now. Please.
