Apparently National Buildings Are Warm

I was grousing below about–among other things–being cold in my house as we try to keep the energy bills down.

Then I saw this picture of our First Lady, Michelle Obama, wearing a killer vintage dress she got at a thrift shop for a couple grand:

Now, I don’t begrudge anyone who wants to wear one of those classic, elegant, full-skirted, Grace Kellyesque creations from the 1950’s, and it looks wonderful on Mrs. O. But as I sit here wearing heavy socks, long sleeves and a shawl, I can’t help wondering why I’m not seeing goose bumps on those fabulous, ever-naked arms! I begrudge her the warm room temperatures that allow her to wear it!

I’m guessing that the Obama’s are not subject to quite the sort of stringent home-heating rules that we’re following over here.

I wonder if it’s still “hot enough to grow orchids” in the Oval Office?

I guess when you’re not paying the bill for the heating oil, yourself, you don’t care what the thermostat says.

But you know, when you’ve declared a 7-year moratorium on all new offshore oil drilling, you’re putting oil shale development off-limits and there are no immediate plans to build nuclear energy plants…you could at least pretend you’re shivering along with the rest of this mean, cold country.

UPDATE:
Steven Crowder looks at why we’re not allowed to be warm. It’s the “Co2? Is that right?”
