That's double last year's tree count... But at least something besides the number of people on food stamps is going up!
The tree glut is especially curious in light of the fact that the Obama's won't be home for Christmas. They'll be leaving on the 17th to vacation in beautiful Hawaii, and won't be back to the White House until after the first of the year. Maybe they're leaving the trees for Bo to enjoy (and utilize)?
I wonder if the poor and elderly victims of Sandy who are still without lights, a hot meal, or indoor plumbing might find this rather outrageous example of conspicuous consumption just a teensy bit annoying?
. . . Four more years!? *groan*
