National Christmas Tree has died near White House

Published May 05, 2012

Federal officials say the National Christmas Tree planted near the White House a year ago has died and is being removed.

The National Park Service says the Colorado blue spruce died of "transplant shock." It came from a tree farm in New Jersey last year and was planted on the Ellipse just south of the White House in March 2011.

The tree replaced one that had stood on the Ellipse since 1978 but was destroyed by high winds in February 2011.

Workers were removing the dead tree Saturday

Obama's War on Christianity Continues Thursday, November 10, 2011 04:21 PM

By: Tammy Bruce

Usually around Christmas time we can count on a variety of stories where bizarre leftist worshipping of political correctness imposes itself on civilization with obsessive efforts to eradicate the word “Christmas” itself, and public displays of faith.

"Now I'm really worried." Obama said he was having me over for Christmas dinner."

This is just pure conjecture, but I can’t help but to have suspicions that each night since he’s been in office, he’s taken a midnight smoke stroll and then stopped to piss on the infidel symbol.

Jimmy Carter’s tree — dead (2011)
Barack Obama’s tree — dead (2012)

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Is that symbolic or what! Died of transplant shock. I guess it couldn't stand to live in Barry's Brave New World or there was a shortage of tree doctors.

Obama is just stimulating the dead tree media economy.

Obama hates Christmas trees, 2 have been neglected and died on his watch.

He also eats dogs.

My thoughts too - very symbolic.

Watched David Jeremiah this morning and he listed all the ways Satan goes about his evil business. Lies/divisiveness, etc. ALL of the Evil One's methodology applies to the Dims and especially so with Obama.

A sign from the Lord. Obuggery’s presidency is cursed and he is doomed.

The tree suffered the same fate as the U.S. Constitution.

Not surprising. Just one more thing that Whatshisname has neglected while in office.

“Something symbolic about that....”

Stealing from working people so as to give a 1/4 of it to people who refuse to work is not giving.

The tree clearly knew something most Americans choose to ignore.

Nuff said.

This seems fitting since a drunk driving illegal alien killed the director of, "A Christmas Story" and his son.
