Just so you know what's up, ladies and gentlemen, these pictures were taken in The Oval Office. It has been the official work place of The President of the United States since John Adams first occupied it in 1800. It has seen the likes of the Adamses, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant, the Roosevelts, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, the Bushes and Clinton.
It is now being treated with disrespect by its current occupant, Barack Obama who apparently does not give a flying crap for the history and tradition of the office ~~ in both senses of the phrase.
Along with the other furniture that this classless boor has a fondness for placing his feet upon, there is the centerpiece of the Oval Office: The Resolute Desk. It does not have the history nor tradition of The Oval Office. Nonetheless, it is the sacred property of the people of the United States of America and were I president I would certainly keep my shoes off it.
Moreover, I would be sure to dress and act like the chief executive of the greatest country in the world instead of some refugee from a third-world toilet or former poverty-stricken, inner-city denizen.
