    Hilarious, LOL! 🙂

    I agree, insulation is sexy but come on, it can look, breath and feel sexy(actually, not feel, it itches).

    Some very clever and "predictable" words by our Prez.

    That's funny.

    Good one guys, 🙂

    The man is a clueless idiot! The economy will boom as soon as we get him out of office. Just keep calling the people that invest and hire people names and nothing will change, except more unemployed people.

    I must say that VA is the model for which the rest of the country needs to follow. All of these initiatives that the President is suggesting is already taking effect in VA. We have a Canon plant and a few others around the state that are powered strictly by solar panels. It's the way of the future.

    They laughed at him for saying we should inflate our tires, even though he was absolutely right and that does help your gas mileage. They'll laugh at him for this, too.

    Because they're fools. They've never been right about anything. Remember, they elected George W. Bush, after all... and if that's not proof of foolishness, what is?

    Doesn't this President appear to be a little cocky when he laughs at
    serious things and always raises his nose when he laughs at his
    own jokes.

    There you have a composite of Obama superior intellect that our media has trumpet for 2 years.
    The man is totally out of control.
    HE DOES NOT HAVE A CLUE!

    Wow!!!! How pathetic and how sad from one idiot President (the cowboy) to another idiot President (the clown!!!).

    We got our old windows replaced this year, and the team who coordinated and did the installation said they've never been busier. They'd hired new sales consultants and installers. Our heating bills are so much less than last year. That's what I call a win-win! Thank you President Obama!

    Talk about dumbing down America, this is doing nothing to advance jobs or real savings. The persons who need these services are already getting them at the local level of governments and housing programs. Another give away for persons to cut their taxes which means they could afford to do this in the first place.

    Can we please just be Americans and make choices for OURSELVES rather than having the government tell us what to do?

    What a dolt!
    This is his big hand that he is playing? If you don't know what I'm referring to, just Google 'Obama tip his hand weatherization'. Jon Stewart did a hilarious bit on that. Why doesn't he just tell us (again) to 'inflate your tires'. Tool Academy indeed!
    Having been around when Carter was Prez, the thing that scares the bejeezus outta me is that Carter was an ineffectual President because he did NOTHING and we still lived under sky high interest rates right up there with high inflation and unemployment...a trifecta that only the DemonRats are able to pull off. Oops! Jeez, I forgot to mention the outright theft of income tax rates, too! Check it out if you don't believe me...Hmmmm...the gov't took 50% of your income once it reached 47k! And then then 70% once it got to 203k!
    Now, 30 years later, we've got a Prez who is doing EVERYTHING in his power to upset the apple cart called capitalism and that is what will destroy us as nation.
    We are soooooo screwed!

    Get rid of H1-b Visa Holders. That will get us back to work. Quit out-sourcing and in-sourcing our highest paying jobs.

    He is correct on this one, but is he sincere? So many cannot afford to do these upgrades. I think the wages paid to presently employed folks in these fields need to be lowered OR their labor time speeded up to get the job done quicker without milking the funds! This is not the fault of UNIONS, but the basic fault of a greedy system that does not wish to pay fair wages to so many who work very hard!

    Now if the Congress will Regulate Big Business – Again – We can then get Wages up to a liveable standard. In this equation Everyone Wins and nobody must Lose! Were these short-sighted types to see the simple wisdom of these facts, we'd not be having to endure this suffering inflicted upon us by Wall Street.

    Since Obama appointed NOTHING but "Shock Doctors" from Wall Street and we see so few Results yet, I am concerned that he is really one of them in the End. We shall see, won't we? See this movie: "Capitalism: A Love Story" to get the "picture" in living color! I am not encouraged right now as Congress is bought mostly. My apologies to some who are NOT! Peace

    What is sexy, is to stop making babies, who add to the environmental problem, in just 16 yrs. That is why we have exponential world population growth, and a rate of environmental damage, that expands faster than we can offset it with with other improvements.

    Energy savings really can't be compared to sexiness...or at least I hope not.
    I have said in the past.... most household live on a budget . Energy efficency , including cost savings, seems to be the best possible alternative to being a hostage to oil. Tell me, What is government and private sector doing to make these things avaiable, affordable, to the average household?

    Home Depot is weak just like our President. Besides, this guy is a narcissist that would never allow dirt under his nails.

    Anything that reduces our dependence on fossil fuels helps to reduce our dependence on foreign dictators who don't like us very much, and that's a good thing for most Americans (oil company CEOs, board members and major investors being the exception). Fostering energy independence is a very smart long-term move by Obama. I can't understand why anybody would be against it, unless they are so partisan that they would cut off their own noses to spite their own faces.

    yea right, the economy will boom once we get another Drool boy idiot like GWB back in office and the republicans controlling the congress again right?

    Yeah, it is sexy. But it would be difficult for BK and Proud to be a Republican to really know that. They live in their mothers basements, which have no insulation. Oh, rough gig, dudes.
