They’re Ruining This War

The Obamas, formerly seen as the first wave in the War On Christmas, are now destroying the holiday by celebrating it too much.

But the wingnuts are on to them.

Amazing how a reelection can reshape an incumbent’s thinking about many things. Now safely ensconced in the White House for 49 more months, the Obamas have decorated the place with 54 Christmas trees this year.

Even allowing for the usual Washington excesses with taxpayer money, that’s a whole grove of Christmas trees.

“We have 54 trees in the White House,” an excited Michelle Obama proudly told visitors the other day. “54!  That’s a lot of trees.”

In fact, the Obamas’ 54 trees this year are almost 50% more Christmas trees than last year. That was during the campaign before Obama whispered a reminder to the Russians that he had to be careful until Nov. 6, when a victory would give him more “flexibility.”

Now, how much carbon do you suppose those 54 trees could be sequestering had they not been chopped by this green president?

And no wonder Obama talked over the weekend about addressing tax increases before any of that annoying business about cutting spending to address this thing called the national debt, now having soared past $16.3 trillion..

In addition to 54 Christmas trees, Michelle Obama has overseen the placement of thousands of ornaments in public rooms. Many of the ornaments celebrate the Obama family dog, Bo, who seems to have become the First Family’s favorite symbol of Christmas. Other decorations, including on the more prominent trees, were made by children in schools on U.S. military bases.

They’re celebrating Christmas, dogs, and children!  Have they no shame?

5 barks and woofs on “They’re Ruining This War

  1. If the First Lady did not decorate, they would say she was Muslim.
    She can’t win. BTW, she also wants children to eat healthy food and be physically fit!

  2. This reminds me of a quote from President Johnson which says,

    “If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read “President Can’t Swim”

    The Obamas can never please the right, so let’s hope they give up trying.

  3. Michelle and Barack are cool no matter who yells, the Christian right or those who want to keep religious symbolism out of the President’s residence. Christmas trees are hangover from the pagan prehistory of Germany. Baby Jesus and the star from the East (Syria?) has nothing to do with them.
