Making Do with 54 Christmas Trees

The Obamas are making do with 54 Christmas trees this year, a fifty percent increase over last year. Andrew Malcom at Investors Business Daily wonders, "Now, how much carbon do you suppose those 54 trees could be sequestering had they not been chopped by this green president?"

But wait, Malcom reminds us that the Obamas are not going to be at the White House to enjoy the holidays.
"According to notices distributed to residents of an exclusive waterfront neighborhood in Hawaii, they can expect to enjoy restricted access and other inconveniences to their homes and normal lives from Dec. 17 through Jan. 6. That's about a 50% longer holiday vacation than last year.

The inconveniences stem from security requirements for the vacationing Obamas and a large number of their accompanying friends. Obama's staff will have to put up with rooms in a nearby luxury hotel.

The Coast Guard will be patrolling surrounding canals. Navy SEALs will be doing whatever SEALs do on security detail. The Secret Service and local police will man numerous area roadblocks and perhaps even some bushes."
