It isn't the breaking of beekeeping laws that the current first family does that bothers me. And I doubt that is others problem here either.
It is jumping on the bandwagon of some of the popular movements, telling people that they should do that too, and how wonderful it is that they made a garden on the whitehouse lawn and now they have wonderful bees and watch me plant lettuce and how wonderful this is and all that. Oh and how about this cute puppy that we rescued?
Sheesh. That is probably the first time the first lady has ever been near dirt. Or a dog.
I'd rather a president who when at the white house is a president, and then when he goes back home he's a farmer or gardener or rancher and does it on his spare time out of the public eye.
Home gardens are great, I've had one for years and love it. I detest it when people join a fad and parade around how great it is and how wonderful they are. And how to save the environment and <snort!> change our lightbulbs to save greenhouse gasses, and then load up the giant plane and fly across the world so they can sit on a eauropean beach, generating more co2 in a week than my family will create in our lives.
The current family is very good at saying (and acting) out one thing, but living another. Either live it, or don't preach it to us. But I don't expect either to happen.
