“…the capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

And could this be the same Barack Obama who is looking to sign a stimulus bill that would spend billions of dollars installing millions of “smart meters” that would enable your power company to prevent you from being as comfortable as he is on hot and cold days?

While our new president is warm-and-toasty in the Oval Office, is he considering the plight of Michigan’s Marvin Schur, a 93-year World War II veteran, who was recently found frozen to death courtesy of a malfunctioning electricity “limiter” device installed by his power company?

Change has come to Washington. Elitism is dead. Long live elitism.

Right now there are close to 1M people shivering in the dark from that ice storm, meanwhile Obama sits toasty in the oval office planning his super bowl party.

He needs to get about 10-million letters saying, "We will turn down our thermostats when YOU DO.".

A lot of black people I have worked with are very cold natured, I don't think it has anything to do with Hawaii...after all, it's probably hotter in Kenya.

These things we know of SillyPutty:
1.Chicago is colder than DC but his alleged birth place is
Hawaii.
2. His pick of raising dissent is to battle with El Rushbo
3. He’s amazed that DC,MD & VA have school days off because of snow & ice and it’s not like Chicago ergo determination to develop the nation’s capitol to “flintiness”
4.Declares there’s too much “secrecy” witihin operational government yet has failed in his own transparency.
5. Keeps predicting doom and gloom for nationwide economy

What a Wonderful Week!/sarc

Hey Mr. Green president you are suppose to turn down the thermostat and put on your jacket. Jimmy Carter, your idol, said wear a sweater.

Hypocrisy indeed.

Worth repeating yoru excellent post but a little louder.

Right now there are close to 1M people shivering in the dark from that ice storm, meanwhile Obama sits toasty in the oval office planning his super bowl party. - And I will add myself, where is Obama's FEMA response at people are freezing and dying? Maybe they are relaxing in his warm toasty oval office getting ready for the super bowl?

How long did he live in Chicago? How long does it take to acclimate from warm Hawaii to cold Chicago?

Why shouldn't he crank up the heat. He's not paying the utility bill!!

Just imagine what the Press would do if Pres Bush 'cranked up the heat' in the Oval Office??

He cranks the Oval Office up to 77 - and we pay that bill.

Yet he intends to restrict how high we can put our thermostats, with no regard to different circumstances like children, the ill and the elderly.

But the new king will have his set at 77 thank you - too hot for a suit jacket.

Isn't that going to be lovely for all the poor statesmen and visiting dignitaries?

If people don't get a clue as to what Socialism is about - passing laws that control YOUR every move, but that they are exempt from - nothing will.

I haven't watched TV news since Nov - are the media bringing this one more example of total hypocrisy up?

So will "CAP AND TRADE" legislation encourage him to turn down the heat??

Based on the assortment of people I have worked with in offices over the years, fat people get too warm and skinny folks get cold.
