    Obama promotes home energy efficiency program

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said Tuesday that home insulation "is sexy," his newest appeal for Congress to pass incentives for homeowners who make their homes more energy efficient.

    "Here's what's sexy about it. It saves money," the president said at a Northern Virginia Home Depot store. He was joined at the outlet by members of Congress representing Virginia and labor and business leaders involved in services to lower use of natural resources consumed by homeowners.

    OH MY GOD...can you imagine if Bush had said that?

    This is just absolutely laughable. I wonder if his teleprompter said that or if he is starting to adlib?

    Insulation is sexy? Saving money is sexy? What book is he reading??


    "The administration is hoping to tap into money paid back by banks or not needed from last October's emergency $700 billion bailout program that pulled the country's financial system back from the precipice of meltdown."

    I thought it was stipulated that this money could only be used to pay down the debt and that's what they were going to do?

    Not only was he smoking crack during Economics 101, but he may still have the pipe sitting around somewhere.

    Umm, old farts & social hermits: saying something "Sexy" in 2009, about to be 2010, is a way to say it's an attractive idea.


    Holy fucking shit. We have a President who's not a total fucking social bore. Lambast him, IMMEDIATELY.

    Y'all sound like a bunch of whining pussies with shit like this. Get lives, IMMEDIATELY.
