#1 Barack Obama: 'no' to solar panels on the White House roof09-12-2010, 08:22 AMA quest to get Barack Obama to shout his commitment to solar power from the roof tops - by re-installing vintage solar panels at the White House - ended in disappointment for environmental campaigners today.
Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, had led a group of environmental activists to Washington in a bio-diesel van hoping to persuade Obama to re-install a set of solar panels originally put up by Jimmy Carter.
The actual Carter-era solar panels - which weigh in at 55 kilograms and are nearly 2 metres long - are out-dated now. But campaigners had hoped that the White House would embrace at least the symbolism of going solar - much like Michelle Obama kicked off her healthy food movement by planting a vegetable garden. ...
Heh. Even Obama won't pay lip service to global warming alarmism. :D

Hippie fail! :DIn most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

POTUS should ship them over to Carter, maybe Peanut Boy can use
them on one of his H for H homes. Especially one with Chicom drywall. :DMay the FORCE be with you!

Michelle can hang their laundry on a line outside instead.

A wind turbine would be a better idea as it would always have a constant supply of hot air.
Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
