The Age of Obama: Heat for me, but not for thee

posted at 10:44 am on January 29, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Last week, Barack Obama caused quite a stir when he allowed himself to be photographed in the Oval Office without wearing a suit jacket, ending the Bush tradition of coat-and-tie for the West Wing.  The New York Times reports on how Obama made that possible during a colder-than-usual Washington winter.  All Obama did was turn up the thermostat to Hawaii hothouse levels:

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.”

Thus did a rule of the George W. Bush administration — coat and tie in the Oval Office at all times — fall by the wayside, only the first of many signs that a more informal culture is growing up in the White House under new management. Mr. Obama promised to bring change to Washington and he has — not just in substance, but in presidential style.

And thus did the Times fall down on the job yet again in the Age of Obama.  While candidate Obama talked endlessly of the need for energy conservation and limits on the use of fuels that produce so-called greenhouse gases, President Obama has no trouble heating the White House for himself to greenhouse levels, according to David Axelrod.  Did the Times even note the hypocrisy, or at the very least the incongruity, in its report on Obama’s White House?  Not at all.

Many people in America, especially where I live, would like to heat their homes to a comfort level where sweaters and coats become unnecessary.  However, Obama and the Democrats want to impose ruinous taxes and penalties on energy production and fuel that produces carbon dioxide — a naturally-occurring element — and make that choice economically unbearable for us.  In fact, candidate Obama spoke directly to that end in May of this year:

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.

“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.

Well, apparently some of us can, and those lucky few do call themselves “leaders”.  The rest of us call them hypocrites as we fetch another sweater.

Aren’t you forgetting that Bambi chastised Washingtonians for being pansies about the cold?

JiangxiDad on January 29, 2009 at 10:47 AM

Well at least he’s different from Carter in that respect…

But he has NO right to wave his finger about “energy consumption” now.

Forget orchids. My philodendron’s leaves froze on my windowsill. Thermostat 72? Forget that, too. OUrs is set at 59, as low as we can set it, at night and only at 66 in the day. But He likes it warm. Oh, really? Put your coat on, sir. I wear 3 shirts in the house and sometimes don a hat. Ultimate hypocrit.

Screw him and his heat. My house is cold, and we’ve learned to live with it, whether we like it or not – we simply can’t afford to crank up the heat to summer temps.

I’d knit the man a sweater, but I wouldn’t waste my yarn, time, or effort on a man that obviously couldn’t care less about his fellow Americans.

lorien1973 on January 29, 2009 at 10:52 AM

For those of us who are going to be paying exorbitant prices to heat our homes next winter thanks to this guy’s policies, yes.

At most, I turn our thermostat up to 68. And that’s when it’s really cold. This spring, I’m going to be researching alternative heating sources because it’s clear President Obama’s policies are going to send the price of heating oil through the roof again.

So yes, the realization that Obama doesn’t live by his rhetoric and is going to make life more expensive for me while not changing his own behavior does make me angry.

Typical leftist, one set of rules for the masses…….

I guess we’re all looking for a accumulative dawning. Meaning that the more the Left and Muddle get a look at the man they elected, eventually they will realize their foolishness in putting Obama in office. He wasn’t hardly fit to be a Senator, and all you have to do in the Senate is talk.
Carter had more executive experience than Obama, and look at what a disaster he made of his administration.
You know what? It won’t matter-Obama will probably win re-election simply because of the pride of the idiots who won’t want to admit that they made a mistake. See the Clinton second term as an example.

unclesmrgol on January 29, 2009 at 10:59 AM

CO2 is not only naturally-occurring, it is biologically active. The biosphere utilizes it; when in abundance (below ridiculous levels), it will be utilized by the fauna. Of course, the fact that the ocean plankton is fixing 110 million tones more CO2 annually that previously measured is not something the Goracle likes to point out; it might show that Mother Nature is smarter than he is.

As a resident of Hawaii I can attest to being cold in 70 degree weather (it is 70 right now and I am wearing a fuzzy robe and am under a blanket). But that is because I am acclimated to the climate. When I lived in Michigan, I was acclimated to the cold. Obama has not lived here for decades, so to blame his Hawaii roots for his hypocrisy is utter and complete BS!

Bit of humor – My Obama-loving mother-in-law wanted to buy me one of those, because I’m always cold. They look like tacky monk robes. Although, with the coming Ice Age, we might need to stock up on them. Meanwhile, the heat will just be cranked up another 10 degrees in the White House, while the rest of us freeze…

Anna on January 29, 2009 at 11:04 AM

I keep the thermostat at 63, because I don’t feel like paying $200 a month to heat my 900 square foot condo.

jeanie on January 29, 2009 at 11:06 AM

What did the people who voted for Obambi expect. He had a non-traditional, sometimes anti-American, upbringing. He is a pompous, arrogant twerp with no respect for many American values. His hypocrisy knows no bounds. And he has just started. I wonder when voters remorse will set in?

Much colder in the NE too, now that the lack of sunspot activity has caused ocean temps to fall. Feels more like the typical winters of my childhood. I prepared with two new union suits (don’t laugh), fleece vests, real wool socks, and wool gloves without fingers. I look like the brawny paper towel guy. But it keeps me warm, and I keep the heat at 66 now instead of wherever I wanted to.

Funny (not so) story. Here in NYC, millions live in gov’t provided housing. We call them the “projects.” Anyway, they’re heated to about 90 degrees. In the dead of the winter, the windows of these apt. bldg’s are wide open. It’s been like that for decades! Guess who pays for the heat :)

yes and dont try to use an electric heater either, since this Stimulus Boondoggle has an Electric Utility Decoupling amendment in it that will no longer bill consumers by their actual usage..

unreal…but I am sure LIHEAP will pay the electric bills for the people Obama cares about..the middle class can take up the slack..again..

I call BS, call your CongressCritters, tell the Senators to get this decoupling amendment OUT of there!!

GarandFan on January 29, 2009 at 11:13 AM

Now–let’s look at all of the above and realize that Obama(with us)is rapidly becoming the new Bush–but faster. question: If he had honestly compromised on the stimulus bill with some real give and take, would the GOP have voted for it and would we like him better?

64 during the day, 52 at night, just to keep the pipes from freezing. If it’s around 40 at night the heat is shut off. Lots of blankets and I sleep with my wool robe on. During the summer, it’s set at 78. And I’m not doing it “to save the planet” or any such nonsense, rather it’s to save my money. Money that Dear Leader wants to take to spread around to ACORN.

We live in Concord, CA – CONCORD, CA! – and have had to turn the heat down to 60 DEGREES because our gas bill SOARED in December.

We’re sitting there shivering because we can’t afford the $322 bill running the heat at 65 cost us.

But as long as Obama is warm and spending OUR MONEY – that’s what counts, right?

As the elderly turn down their thermostats out of guilt, and third world nations are denied energy producing systems by the UN, a well off kid from a White household in Hawaii burns away fossil fuel for his pleasure.

It’s good to be the king.

I keep the thermostat at 63, because I don’t feel like paying $200 a month to heat my 900 square foot condo.

Same here. 63 Fahrenheit it is. Collie is comfortable, but my Filipina wife isn’t. She does not complain, however. She’s a real trooper.

My collie says:

You silly hairless humans just need more hair, that’s all.

Mostly, Odumbo needs to grow some chest hair. Maybe he needs testosterone supplements. Ya’ think?
