Another fine example of the President who fashions himself as environmentally minded, keeping oil wells from producing, talking up energy independence but keeps his temperature in his White House office at 82 degrees and with 56 personal trainers in the DC phone book has his personal trainer fly in from Chicago each week. Yes we want a healthy President but at what cost to taxpayers and the environment? Is 50,000 pounds of Carbon emissions worth it? For someone who talks the environmental talk, he sure is the picture of hypocrisy in his personal life.
With a schedule as hectic as President Obama’s it must be hard to stick to a training regimen without help — but why does he insist on having his old trainer fly out from Chicago to D.C. regularly when Obama and his wife exhort the rest of us to drive less? And in a recession? According to Ashley Parker at the New York Times, Obama’s fitness czar Cornell McClellan comes out to D.C. every week:
