Obama to Panda Bears: Drop Dead

March 20, 2009

pandaPanda bears now share something in common with AIG’s employees: Barack Obama’s wrath.

In a speech before the National Conference of State Legislatures today, Obama said that Washington’s stimulus package specifically excludes funds for zoos. (Circling sharks will be disappointed: the law also prohibits funds for aquariums.)

In a Jimmy Carter-esque symbolism, Bloomberg News reports that Obama also said that he was postponing plans to modernize electrical and heating systems in the East Wing of the White House because this too “doesn’t meet the standard of creating new jobs.”

Rocky notes that the last time his air conditioner broke, a middle-class working man with two kids and a dog came out to fix it. He never realized that the White House uses leprechauns to fix their HVAC systems.

    Wonder how the middle income person working on the assembly line at the US plant making the HVAC equipment for this job feels? How about the truck driver who has no HVAC equipment to transport?
    I hope the rest of the country doesn’t follow the presidents lead in killing “Shovel Ready GREEN Jobs”
