Skip to comments.Obama Puts Solar Panels on Roof of the White House
Posted on 05/10/2014 1:28:34 PM PDT by Kaslin
Well it seems the President is still trying to keep up appearances. This week the Obama administration completed the installation of new solar panels on top of the White House.
It was almost 30 years ago that Reagan removed the solar panels that Jimmy Carter had built on top of the presidents residence, but shockingly enough, President Obama has once again ruined everything Reagan created. This is a reminder to the American people that President Obama is supposed to be a big proponent of stopping climate change.
According to a White House spokesman,
Continuing President Obamas commitment to lead by example to increase the use of clean energy in the U.S., the White House has completed installation of American-made solar panels on the first familys residence as a part of an energy retrofit that will improve the overall energy efficiency of the building.
The project, which helps demonstrate that historic buildings can incorporate solar energy and energy efficiency upgrades, is estimated to pay for itself in energy savings over the next eight years.
Apparently this is just one of the many steps Obama plans to take in order to make voters think that he is truly dedicated to helping the environment. He might as well be saying to the people, Remember, I am not a lame duck!
Seems like it would be wiser to outfit Michelle with panels...
What took you so long Barry O?
And just what was zero’s “lead by example” when he sacrificed four American lives at Benghazi?
Obama is an idiot.
> Seems like it would be wiser to outfit Michelle with panels...
After all, it would only look like another one of those dumpy “haute couture” outsits she’s always billing the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars at a time.
So Michelle is Bride of Frankstein
Come think of it did Jimmy Carter did same thing HELLO
He should put propellor things around the white hut. The wind coming from his mouth could supply the electric for all of DC. He could also have one of those propellor beanies on his head to complete his wardrobe.
It seems to me that just about everything this affirmative-action clown does says “send me to prison...NOW!”
This is like vandalizing the Whitehouse. Big black panels on the roof makes no sense. There was a reason they were taken down.
He probably got them from Solyndra, so at least we got something for the $500,000,000 he spent.
What a pathetic grandstander this guy is.
So is he also going to rip out all those evil central cooling /heating air systems? Maybe they can hire some Dreamer interns to fan the first family with palm fronds. Is the Pres. also going to remove all the mouse and rat traps and (non-green) strychnine rodent treats? Set the rodents free like you and me!
In other words, Reagan saved us billions of dollars for a few panels.
History repeats itself. And Obama passes out Solar Power tax breaks like they were cookies.
Now about that Rancher that they're persecuting. I believe the end game for that is Solar Power.
More and more like Jimmy every day.
When he dumps “The Beast” presidential tank for a Nissan LEAF, I’ll be impressed.
So has he retrofitted his humble digs in Chicago?
Some shade for the snipers?
Again - not everything you post is an editorial.
Were the solar panels made in China?
Wondering if this is a Solyndra solar system? or maybe one of the other defunct solar companies Obama backed??
just enough to power his ESPN
What’s he got the thermostats set on inside?
Obama attacks Americans working in the oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries.
Lemme guess. $1 billion worth? Made by the company formerly known as Solyndra??
What kind of solar panels, most educated, political lady—PV modules or collectors? —lowtech
Salvaging a failed technology for a failed presidency?
This guy is really making Carter appear competent.
Probably not even hooked up.
I think all they do is heat the water.
Are these solar panels on the roof? Or beside the White House? Solar panels on the roof are a danger to firefighters...impeding access to a fire and/or contribute to accidental electrocution.
Lemme know when he puts them on his places in Chicago and Hawaii....
And pays for it out of his own pocket.
An anti-american Marxist post turtle.
They can recharge all the flashlights they’ll need at night when they shut off the power to go green 24/7.
Doesn’t that clown keep the place about 80..
I was just thinking about that while reading that Carter turned down the thermostat and put on a sweater.
“—Solar panels on the roof are a danger to firefighters...impeding access to a fire and/or contribute to accidental electrocution.”
Good lord,I did not know that. Why is installing them there even allowed?
I hope that I live to see them taken down by a future great president.
the panels are several years late being installed
It's like the Pope putting black solar panels on the the domed roof of the Sistine Chapel at St. Peter's.
I hope the next Republican president takes them down like Pres. Reagan did after that grits-for-brains, Carter, blemished the same roof with these ugly slabs of metal and plastic.
Obama, a tasteless clod, is mentally ill....and just wait for what's coming his final two years. Maybe a re-cycling dump for old metal cans in the Rose Garden.
Solar panels will be the crowning achievement of his administration. Quite literally.
A lovely turn of phrase! All of our elected officials are tasteless clods. Obama is King Clod.
At least Carter came from a farming family with the obligatory thriftiness. This fool is a whole new breed of narcissist debauchery. And a vindictive metro sexual pansy to boot.
