Obama in hot water at home?

Blog Guy, what does President Obama do in his spare time? He must have a lot of it, because he doesn’t have to commute to work or anything like that.

obama water heater combo 180Obama like to putter around the house. He’s quite a handyman. For instance, yesterday he diverted his motorcade for a stop at a suburban Home Depot, to pick up a new water heater for the White House.

Really? That sounds odd. I mean, why does Obama care if the White House has a new water heater?

Are you nuts? Would YOU want to tell Michelle she can’t do her laundry because there’s not enough hot water?

Wait a minute. The President? Home Depot? How did he get a huge water heater home, anyway?

I think he probably stood it up so it stuck out of the sunroof of his limo, but I guess nobody got a picture of that.

Personally I’m picturing Obama on a motorbike with the hot water system in a sidecar.

You guys must be joking… obviously, he’s teleporting it with his telekinetic ability, so it instantly materialises in the White House basement!!!! Duh!! It’s so obvious!!

And, needless to say, he got the geothermal one, with a solar-powered back-up system.

Ok, I’ll go back to my meds and my little corner over there, sorry for the outburst.

It’s nice to know our president can find the hot water heaters without an escort.

He does look quite good in this pic… without people and only water heaters for company…
