Dogs Off The Furniture

Home - by - January 31, 2010 - 11:18 America/New_York - 69 Comments

Update: NOT The Resolute Desk, but still, dogs off the furniture, please.

Obama with his feet on the Oval Office desk made from the timbers of the HMS Resolute and gift from the UK in 1880:

P062609PS-1256 by The White House.

Little known fact: The desk has been modified thrice: President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered a hinged front panel in order to hide his wheelchair, Reagan had it modded to accommodate his personal chair and Clinton had a large arc removed to enable the free movement of Monica’s bobbing head. -Assman

Pssst, Barry. That desk isn’t from Wal-Mart.

Concerned onlookers were reassured that Obama does, indeed, take good care of the desk. And moments later this was evidenced when he was seen wiping the desk down with a moistened U.S. flag.  -bigfurhat

    Oh my. This man has no class whatsoever! No way in hell would he ever be invited over to my house. Oh sh!t you right Frank, that is MY house!

    If you look closely you can see shreds of the constitution on the bottom of his shoe.

    Maybe he wipes his butt on the carpet like a dog? Or maybe he flings his cigarette butts out of the oval office window? Or eats cheeze-its in Lincoln’s bed? When abroad, does he pee in Tivoli fountain? Pick his nose at a dinner at Windsor Castle?
    The man has no manners. It’s as if he thinks he is above everybody and everything else. Hmmmm.

    Wanna bet Obama is the first person ever to put his foot on the Resolute Desk. Not only is this a sign of O’s adolescent narcissism, but it’s also a sign of how clueless the people in the White House are. They allowed a picture of this to be taken.

    By the way, there are other pictures of Obama with his feet on top of the Resolute Desk.

    Cakes, if you have an old service to your house that has been exposed to a lot of weather, the insulation can break down and moisture will caus havoc with any phoneline dial-up/DSL. I have found cases where the service drop from an overhead pole that had been hanging out in the weather was the root of all the problems on a data transfer problem.

    If it is only isolated to specific rooms and not the entire system in the house, then you need to look at house wiring. Rodents can cause problems along the same lines.

    Keep me posted, maybe we can get this resolved.

    Those walls look straight with right angles vs. the curves of the oval office walls. Is this a side office off the oval-oval office space? Regardless, it’s just one more illustration of the ways he brings down the office of the president. Get your feet off the furniture! It does make one wonder what he does when cameras aren’t around.

    @ Hillary- That website ( http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2008/10/naughty-obama-mamma.html ) needs to widely disseminated. While it’s not fair to visit the sins of the parents upon the son, when a fifty-year-old son insists on imitating his mother’s wicked ways rather than establishing his own honor, it’s perfectly fair to show where his whore-like tendencies come from. And that website is interesting and informative well beyond just the pictures of Stanley.

    Thanks for posting it.

    Doc-(OT)nothing old here- I built the house 4 years ago. Maybe it is faulty wiring @installation? No rodent issue,either. I do want to sell and downsize, but not likely in this economy. Anybody here want to live in a really gorgeous, quiet lakeside neighborhood in GA? Top of the line home at a great deal. Nice for horses,too. Possible downside- I would be your neighbor, I want to build on the lot next door.

Advice for the TD person- if you are easily pissed off- don’t read comments with a name that is not yours at the front of them.

The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.

I guess that is because W – you know, the draft-dodging President that drove our economy into the ditch, failed to prevent the 9/11 attacks or kill Osama Bin Laden, lied his way into an unecessary invasion of Iraq, and lost a major American city due to appointing an incompetent crony to head FEMA – is a “real” American and, therefore, can put his feet wherever he wants.
