This has been popping up on a few sites, but it was so darned funny that I had to share.
On his first full day as President, P-BO was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit coat. Now, one might wonder why. After all, the low temperatures are kinda big news, what with the threat of GLOBAL WARMING and all.
So, why are three of those men in that photo not wearing jackets?
“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.”
Now, during the campaign, P-BO said: "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."
So, P-BO, which is it? Can we grow orchids in our living rooms, or do we need to turn down the thermostat?
Strangely enough, P-BO was later criticizing the local schools for shutting down due to the ice and said: “We’re going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town. I’m saying that when it comes to the weather, folks in Washington don’t seem to be able to handle things.”
Hey, I got an idea. It'll sound crazy, but bear with me. Maybe, just maybe, P-BO should apply some of that "flinty Chicago toughness" to his OWN FREAKING BEHAVIOR!!!
You want me to stop driving my SUV and turn the thermostat down so that my water pipes are in danger of freezing, but you want to recreate Hawaii's climate in your house?
Do as I say, not as I do, indeed.
The best part, though, the absolute best part, is that the New York Times makes it's story about how P-BO got rid of that stuffy GWB dress code. P-BO is such a great man, he even instituted a "Business Casual" weekend dress code. That evil GWB had the nerve to insist that people dressed up when they entered the most important house in the country.
It's gonna be a loooooong four years.
