Well it seems the President is still trying to keep up appearances. This week the Obama administration completed the installation of new solar panels on top of the White House.

It was almost 30 years ago that Reagan removed the solar panels that Jimmy Carter had built on top of the president’s residence, but shockingly enough, President Obama has once again ruined everything Reagan created. This is a reminder to the American people that President Obama is supposed to be a big proponent of stopping climate change.

According to a White House spokesman,

“Continuing President Obama’s commitment to lead by example to increase the use of clean energy in the U.S., the White House has completed installation of American-made solar panels on the first family’s residence as a part of an energy retrofit that will improve the overall energy efficiency of the building.

The project, which helps demonstrate that historic buildings can incorporate solar energy and energy efficiency upgrades, is estimated to pay for itself in energy savings over the next eight years.”

Apparently this is just one of the many steps Obama plans to take in order to make voters think that he is truly dedicated to helping the environment. He might as well be saying to the people, “Remember, I am not a lame duck!”
