“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.”

Thus did a rule of the George W. Bush administration — coat and tie in the Oval Office at all times — fall by the wayside, only the first of many signs that a more informal culture is growing up in the White House under new management.

"If Mr. Obama’s clock is looser than Mr. Bush’s, so too are his sartorial standards."

That hack politician could never hope to match any of his predecessor's standards.

“Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.”

Not very “green” of him, is it.

Nope — but then cutting the carbon footprint is, like paying taxes, only for the little people.

Important members of the ruling elite are exempt.

That's because unlike you and me he doesn't have to pay the power bill. Meanwhile WWII vets are freezing to death in Detroit.

My exact thoughts: Requiring a coat and tie in the Oval Office was Draconian? Good grief.

Exactly the thought I was having.

Words do have meaning. This is childish use of this one.

His suit continues to be empty.

Believe me, if this is all they could find to write about Bush, the headline would be BUSH UNABLE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PUT ON SUIT COAT.

This Kenyan-born guy is a big snore-bore. 4 years of this, huh?

Already happening. Was surfing through the channels when I spotted an info-female on MSNBC wearing a leather jacket over a shabby blouse.

She looked like she had come directly from a lesbian biker bar.

“He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Where are the client police when you need them? Didn’t Obama state in the campaign that people don’t have to keep their thermostats at 72 all the time??

"If Mr. Obama’s clock is looser than Mr. Bush’s, so too are his sartorial standards."

Given his Indonesian background, I'd say they were Soetorial standards...
