WASHINGTON — The White House is becoming the "Pink House" in recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

President Barack Obama announced Thursday via Twitter that the building will be bathed in pink light. It will be for just one night.

The ‘bammer just doesn’t know which way to turn. He’s becoming his own parody.

Why not “Breast Cancer Decade”? There really aren’t any other diseases, are there?

Pink House? Isn’t that racist? What does Sharpton have to say about that? Have you noticed that we haven’t heard a peep from the justice brothers during this election cycle. I wonder why?

I’ve expressed my opinion that many of these “breast cancer awareness” campaigns are just cheap marketing gimmicks that latch on to breast cancer as the way to get attention. (What’s the disease of the month and what color is it? Breast cancer and pink. Good, we’ll get advertising and save on half of our normal red dye budget.) This White House stunt is the ultimate embodiment of that gimmick.

Why not?

We are a nation without balls, might as well go all fem!

Next up, we put a giant fake condom on the Washington Monument for AIDS Awareness Week.

May God save this republic from ourselves.

As an RN, I am thoroughly sick of the emphasis placed on breast cancer. Sure, it’s a horrid disease, and rates seem to be out of control, but diabetes has a far greater impact on hospitalizations and the health of Americans in this country. Every other patient I care for is a diabetic ...we lick that and we could lick a good percentage of the health disasters we see everyday ...but, no — it’s all about breast cancer — ridiculous!!

Like others have said.....ENOUGH!

Want to prevent/avoid breast cancer.....read this...

Dr. Wright is my doctor....he’s done lots of research....but, of course the things he suggests do not benefit the pharmaceutical industries OR government....so you won’t hear much about it.

I am a woman and even I am getting sick of all the breast cancer awareness extravaganzas. I’m glad that breast cancer has gotten more attention and more women are testing regularly for this disease, but this is overkill. No pun intended.

I know many people affected by breast cancer, but I know if I say anything detrimental about the overuse of “pink” it will seem like I am cold-hearted. So I won’t say anything.

But, enough!

I always figured PC would eventually cause the White House to change colors (or at least for it to cease being referred to by color), but I couldn’t have predicted it’d turn pink.

Amen! Everytime I see a pink ribbon I want to throw up. They are everywhere - EXCEPT I haven't seen them in the men's bathroom yet!

This is extremely low-budget. The WH is already lit up, with Gore-efficient lighting. They are going to get sixty bucks worth of theatrical gel and tape that over the lights “for just one night”.

Maybe even Christmas-wrapping cellophane in pink.

I can’t wait for February, National Prostate Cancer Month. I wonder if the White House will become the Brown House for February.

I could not agree more. I was just extorted at the supermarket for another donation. They make sure every person in line behind you knows whether you say yes or no. I'm very,very tired of it. I've donated plenty to it over the years but have no idea where the money goes, how it's used, the rake-offs by the people who administrate it, etc.

I have a daughter in law who's recently had 3 breast cancer surgeries so it's not as if I'm unaware of the terrors of the disease. I just want accountability and fewer intimidating tactics in my "voluntary" donations.

Our commie “pinko” president will feel right at home living in a pink house. How sad.

It was done before, at least once, during President Bush's time.

That’s appropriate, since the Obama administration is so infested with pinkos.

Just tell them you already gave. If they aren't happy with that reply, screw 'em.

What are they going to do for prostate cancer?

Guessing that won’t ever be a colred ribbon worthy compassion exhibitionist issue.

My mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and if I see another “pink” logo on anything I pick out at the grocery store, I’m going to put it back on the shelf.

It’s no secret that Susan G. Komen affiliates donate to Planned Parenthood.

"Enough!"

There was a big stink last year (2009), when the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, which is funded and appointed by the Dept. of Health & Human Services (Kathleen Sebelius), came out with a report that it wasn't necessary for women over the age of 50 to get a mammogram every year. This task force is supposed to be impartial, but I find it hard to believe there is anything impartial in any part of Obama's government. Now they want us to believe they are concerned about breast cancer?

You miss my point. They’re attempting to shame people into donating, which I won’t tolerate. Lots of people would rather kick in a few bucks than to give your answer or mine, which was: “I might give some money to prostate cancer research.”
