The Obama Administration announced that a major remodeling and renovation of the White House grounds will take place this spring and summer. The Rose Garden, a fixture since being planted during the Woodrow Wilson administration, will be removed to install an in-ground fiberglass pool and hot tub. A charcoal grill and picnic tables will also be built. A glass enclosure is to be built around the pool and bbq area so that it can be used year round, but opened to the outdoors in the summer time.
The Rose Garden, planted by Ellen Wilson, replaced the Colonial Garden of Edith Roosevelt (wife of President Theodore Roosevelt). That was built on the site of the White House stables, which became unneccessary with the invention of automobiles. While the gardens were extensively remodeled in the Kennedy Administration, they have remained relatively the same for about fifty years.
President Obama, however, feels that his is an administration of “Change.”
“My girls are getting older, and older children require a pool for them and their friends. They also want to have bbqs and their parents would like to soak at night in a hot tub. We think that this is a much better use of the land at our Presidential Palace than just planting a bunch of colored flowers.”
“I’d also prefer to have my beer summits around a bbq grill with women in bikinis in the pool than on old, rusty, wrought iron furniture in the middle of some old woman’s flower garden.”
“Besides, in an election year, we want to break down the stereotype that black folks can’t swim.”
