First Lady Unveils White House Holiday Decorations
3:00AM November 29, 2012
(WASHINGTON) -- It took 54 live Christmas trees, 175 pounds of gingerbread, and 85 volunteers from across the country to pull it off, but the holidays have finally arrived at the White House.
More than 90,000 visitors will tour the decorations at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue this holiday season, which now boasts a huge 18-foot-6-inch Fraser fir in the Blue Room and a giant topiary of the Obama family dog Bo made out of 20,000 black and white pom-poms.
Other highlights include the annual White House gingerbread house, which weighs in at an impressive 300 pounds. It even includes chandeliers that light up, the first lady bragged. It glows. Like Rudolphs nose, right.

Are they put on the monthly jobs report?
I see our tax money is hard at work, as always.

Notice how green, these are not cut trees but live trees in pots, which will then get planted in some forest afterwards in an attempt to mitigate global warming.
I wish this were the stupidest thing the Obamas had ever done in their lives.
Negatron - these proles are volunteers and don't draw any salary.
I knew those Obamas were as American as apple pie!
Foreign interlopers...now I know how the Saxons felt after the Norman invasion.
“Let them eat cake”.....
Hey, at least the trees aren’t decorated with condoms, unlike the Slick Willie years.
Silly liberals...Trees are big vegetables. Cut them down, harvest, replant and you have a new crop to be cut down and harvested when they are the desired size.
Those two trees in front of the White House are beautiful. I am glad that at least at Christmas, they can still spruce the place up even with the Obamas.
Since the beginning of time. I am glad that they do this though. It is a spectacular look for the visitors who go through the White House during the next month. I was lucky enough to see the displays back in 1996.....it is extraordinary.
I don't think so sucka!
wonder how many are volunteers because they are out of the job market?
“Hey, at least the trees arent decorated with condoms, unlike the Slick Willie years.”
They probably just have male/male or female/female “wedding” cake figures in place of the angels at the top of the trees. They will probably have Beatrice Miller’s “two moms” be honorary guests to make up for her being finally and mercifully kicked off American Idol. Because America discriminated against her because we all know she got the thumbs down not because she kept hitting sour notes and constantly looked like someone was going to beat her to death if she didn’t “win.”
American Idol=Xfactor — whatever.
Surrounded by all that Christmas spirit & beauty yet they spend the “holiday” in Hawaii. Go figure.
What is that lump sticking out of her right cheek?
Wonder if they still have the Mao ornament?
Whoa there, Kearnyirish, don't you go making fun of "as American as Apple Pie"! LOL
Wow, that's almost one per state.
I still can become angry in my quiet time knowing the Gop-e picked/forced on us liberal Mitt to fight these dedicated pure marxists. Now, no reforms, increased taxes and spending almost certain, an agency; Homeland Security which has become the police arm of Obama, and he as a CIC who is not loyal to our soldiers nor our country or his oath.
Merry Christmas, America. Just don't give up, should be your Christmas message to those who are still shaken.
Thank the Lord that I was prepared for this because when Clinton won, I was almost devastated. I knew the moral structure would be torn for years to come. Women groups protected him and that was hard on women who seen him as a corrupt person against women though now some judge Newt. Only thing worse to come, are the police/state/feds in the streets turning on the people. Sounds so extreme, doesn't it. With the wrong president, given the Patriot Act and Homeland Security, one can do about anything to the people. I realize that every president keeps things from us and does things we see as wrong..though, this man in control now, ( a planned control by the way) has broken his oath to the constitution. You cannot get any more corrupt character right in your face, other than Hugo Chavez, Castro character.
OK; they’re as American as halal bean cakes...
It looks like a botched Photoshop job.
