Federal officials say the National Christmas Tree planted near the White House a year ago has died and is being removed.
The National Park Service says the Colorado blue spruce died of "transplant shock." It came from a tree farm in New Jersey last year and was planted on the Ellipse just south of the White House in March 2011.

Globull warming victim, no doubt about it....
Christmas hates Obambi!
Everything they touch.
Even the tree couldn’t withstand all the socialism going on in DC.
A symbol of the Obama administration?
My honey locust tree died outside MY house.
Do I see it in the national news? NNNOooooo!!!
Will they call it a Winter Solstice Festival tree? Can’t use the word Christmas, might offend someone.
Wouldn’t it be easier to just put up a Festivus
pole, less upkeep, more in keeping with the spirit
of Obamismus. Let the recitation of grievances
Check for borers, about 4-6ft up the trunk. Holes a coat hanger tip would fit into, with pink/black slime oozing out. Maggot (larvae) inside, needs squashing, or it’ll hatch into moth and infest your other trees. Ram a coat hanger end into the hole and see if it comes out “clean”.
Well, Michelle could have used more than 1 tree and spread it around for crying out loud!
Everything they touch = dying & dead.
The close proximity of the Antichrist was too much for it.
Do you REALLY want to see Moochelle, or worse yet Obambi, using that festivus pole as it was intended to be used?
It’s like a metaphor, analogy, and simile all rolled into one. The RNC should be using this in a campaign commercial.
How many ways can Obama ‘kill’ Christmas. . .
Must be from the Chairman Mao ornament.
'That's where I used to take a leak - shh, don't tell anyone'
“The RNC should be using this in a campaign commercial.”
You give them too much credit; but you’re right, they should. It’d be a great ad to compare side-by-side with the dying US Economy.
