“We have 54 trees in the White House… 54! That’s a lot of trees,” said Michelle Obama, decorously refraining from calling them Christmas trees. We, the taxpayers, paid for them, whether they symbolize anything religious or not. We’re also paying various costs associated with the First Family’s trip to Hawaii from December 17 to January 6.
54 Christmas trees and they’re leaving town a week before Christmas?!
It’s almost as if Outsouse doesn’t know that the Christmas trees are dedicated to the Armed Services and other public figures of note, honoring them, but whatever. Althouse needs her wine refreshed while she wonders (in Cokie Roberts’ style) why does the Obama family goes to someplace so foreign as Hawaii (in Kenya? Yes) for Christmas every year.
