More Christmas trees at the White House

Workers outside the West Wing entrance of the White House were busy putting lights on a Christmas tree on Friday evening.

The First Lady and her daughters received the official White House Christmas tree earlier this afternoon.

    Happy Holidays to you Mr. Neider. Cheer up. The white house christmas tree tradition has been in place forever, even before there was a black president in office.

    @ timothy neider--Sorry about your situation. I feel for people like you and so do a lot of other people. You are right sometimes it feels like no one cares, but they (the democrats) are really trying to provide you with healthcare and unemployment benefits. Hang in there. Hopefully they will pass unemployment in the lame duck session coming up in weeks. Jobs should also increase next year. Don't give up. Take care.

    Mr. Neider I lost my job before Obama was president and the other president was Bush and we happen to have been in the same predictment then too. Then he and congress did not want unemployment benefits for those who were laid off through no fault of our owns and if it had not been for the demo we would have not gotten it. So don't blame Obama for what the republician is trying to hold up to keep the american people from getting the benefits. Remember those are the very ones who called all unemployed people lazy and looking for a handout. Not Obama or the demo. You think it is bad now, just wait until the new congress you elected get in there and do nothing they promised to do.

    Jobs are increasing and they will continue because Obama is going to keep giving small business help to make that come true and big business will start because they know if small business keep getting help they will eventually become big business and drive them out of business. Obama is not as stupid as you may think he is. He is just not thinking about doing things the way the man does and is getting it done.

    Do you whinners know the president is not the only one who is responsible for the shape our employment is in? Do you know that he doesn't have a business wherein he could put everybody back to work, PERSONALLY? Did you know that he tried to put monies out there to states, banks, corporations and businesses, who had the wherewithall to hire people, and it looks like they just sat on it? STOLE IT. Do you remember that most AMERICAN WORKERS jobs were sold out to overseas vendors under the BUSH administration??
