Once again demonstrating the leadership and forward-thinking that has made his name synonymous with progress, thrift, and government efficiency, Barack Obama has ordered that solar panels be added to the Whitehouse to commemorate the one year anniversary of his not so efficiently named "Executive Order 13514 on Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance."
Of course, the "leadership" shown in installing solar panels isn't exactly groundbreaking. It was first tried by previously-worst president Jimmy Carter way back in 1979. And President George W. Bush installed three separate solar energy systems on the Whitehouse grounds, thereby triggering global warming.
Obama's new system will consist of solar energy panels to generate electricity (which he has been unable to do personally since 2008), and a solar water heater which will send hot water directly to the family residence.
And of course, the system is predicted to be the most efficient in the world because, as the mainstream media so frequently reminds us, the sun rises and sets on Barack Obama.
