From the New York Times, word that Obama's not one
for putting on layers of clothing and turning down the thermostat:
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.
“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”
LOL! That's certainly a logical explanation: Don't raise the bridge, lower the river, I suppose? To be fair some liberal bloggers chided Obama
for his environmental faux pas
, but Wonkette somehow managed to convince itself that he was wearing a sweater
You will recall that, under Bush, everybody had to be in jacket and tie at 6:45 AM, on Saturdays, because he was a *****. President Obama goes to work around 9 AM — later than your Wonkette, for christ’s sake! — and sometimes he wears a SWEATER over his shirt instead of a proper tailcoat and jodhpurs.
Yep, they managed to turn it into a celebration of the One, and got a chance to bash Bush as well!
