      My guess is that they think the TVs work fine and they see no reason to spend time and money replacing them. There a theater in the White House is Obama wants a big screen. www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/3484819402/

      Time to upgrade to a HD flat screen television Mr President. Cathode Ray Tubes are soooo 1999 :-)

      And from that perspective. Is he really 4 meters tall and standing 20 meters in front of that 32" CRT?

      President Barack Obama studies and practices the extemporaneous speaking style of Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. Later that day he receives personal tax advice from Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner.

      Hard to believe that there are still CRT TVs around in the White House. Aren't greener alternatives available?

      R Flick,

      sometimes its better to extend the life of an older product, than buy a new one. in fact its always better.so dont go line up for a hybrid, restore an older car to its glory.

      but srsly, that TV and stereo made me lol.
