Walter Scheib, White House chef for two presidents, revealed in the New york Times that " There was a small garden on the roof of the White House where produce was grown. The Clinton and Bush families dined regularly on organic foods." Too bad nobody reads the Times anymore because those facts have gone unmentioned in all the hubbub over the latest White House garden news:
And it doesn't stop there! Once the PR dies down about establishing a garden on the south lawn, the Obamas then plan to kick off the next news cycle by setting an example for the rest of the country in terms of energy conservation. They'll be implementing Phase One of the Obama energy plan by installing a solar-powered clothes dryer on the north lawn. Being the coolest president means that no common clothesline will do, but will instead be designed in the image of the 44th presidency as we have come to know it.
