White House won’t renovate bowling alley with ‘green’ materials after blowback

WH Bowling Lane

The Obama administration quickly withdrew a politically toxic request for bids Wednesday to refurbish the president’s two bowling lanes with environmentally-friendly materials.

The request was removed hours after it was posted, once it began drawing negative media attention.

The cost to renovate the lanes easily could have run into the millions, given the specifics of the request for bids and the requirement that “green” materials be used.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus summed up the prevailing reaction in this tweet:
