The Obama Oval Office –
Why Does It Look So Crappy?

Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 1/11/2013 8:59:22 PM

An earlier post today indicated shock at how rather…cheap the Obama Oval Office appeared in a recent photo. From the colors to the wall art to the what may very well be the worst drapes of any current national leader in the entire world. (They really are that bad) So let’s take a quick compare contrast of today’s Barack Obama Oval Office and compare it to some past presidents. Here is the photo of today’s Oval Office that caused many to remark at how badly the decorating was. Note the odd linoleum-looking table

Comments:
Plastic-looking apples. And those awful couches - and the odd pinkish drapes. And the striped walls. Motel 6?

Alinsky said that ridicule was a great weapon. Isolate a target, etc., etc. Easy target here - and check out the photo of Barky. Problem is it is our White House he has debased.

The Republicans had far better taste and Obama´s is the worst. It looks like a middle class family room that has been abused by five children in the family.

We saw the photo of the family watching something (the Super Bowl?) in the upstairs room - Treaty Room? Chips and dip and soft drink cups and debris all over the furniture and the rug. There were early reports about his Chicago office - black carpet littered with peanut shells tossed there by Guess Who....

Ghetto.

I think the stripes give it a circus tent vibe.

The first photo made Obama look like a pimp.

The oval office now looks like a perfect place to chill, smoke some weed, and do a few lines of nose candy.

It´s only missing a couple of fine touches, like crossed spears on the wall behind rhino skin shields. Maybe a lion skin in front of the fireplace and a life-size wooden statue of Duh One beside the window with a couple of little bones dangling from his ears.

Yeah, I´m a racist now, so what?

A long time ago there was a product called Z-Brick. Anybody remember that? That´s what that horrible coffee table in the photo looks like. Also, and maybe I´m just seeing it wrong, but the pictures on each side of the desk, one a painting and one a picture of the arm of the Statue of Liberty (I think) only seem to appear in the offices of obama and Clinton. Whatever, it´s dreadful and looks quite dirty.

Why has it become correct to make our formerly "nice´ things junky? Those other photos of the Oval office show it tobe a very lovely, warm, hospitable room. Obama has turned it into a sitting room for homeless person and done on a small budget.
Why? What is the purpose of making a nice place dumpy? You don´t supose they want it to look like a place where no self-respecting white guy would show up? Sorry...that´s what it looks like. Our fraternity house (60 years ago) looked better than that.

I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address last night. Unlike prior years where I had live feeds and extensive coverage. Instead, I listened to IN-A-GADDA-DA-SOTU. I did peek at Twitter a couple of times, but not long enough to turn into a pillar of salt. Reading the headlines and tweets today, there aren’t any of them that couldn’t have been written before the speech. Not watching was surprisingly refreshing. A field trip away from the asylum.

LOS ANGELES - In a packed courtroom, attorneys unveiled opposing views Monday on the emotionally divisive issue of whether California public school teachers should be protected from dismissal if they are found to be grossly ineffective in their jobs. The opening volleys in what´s expected be a monthlong trial came from lawyers for nine students seeking to abolish teacher tenure and seniority, and from attorneys for the governor, state education department and teacher unions who say such extreme measures are not needed. "The evidence will show that the impact of an effective teacher is profound and undeniable," attorney Theodore Boutrous Jr. said.

NEW YORK — When the 9/11 Memorial Museum opens in mid-May, it will have shards of the fallen World Trade Center towers. It will have walls covered with portraits of the nearly 3,000 victims, and the watch worn by Todd Beamer when he declared, "Let´s roll," and helped launch an attack on the Flight 93 hijackers. It will have a burned-out ambulance that raced to save people, and helmets of firefighters who battled dust and flames to reach those trapped in the ruins.

While New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is getting hammered over a close aide´s involvement in snarling traffic as an apparent act of political retribution, he´s nevertheless set himself apart from the Obama administration in his response to scandal. The punishment in Trenton was swift. The governor said at a press conference Thursday that, within minutes of seeing incriminating emails, he fired his deputy chief of staff. He also sidelined his former campaign manager, nixing a lucrative contract and shutting him out of a plum job at the helm of the state GOP. Two Port Authority officials previously had resigned.

Before you break out your favorite EDM song, just consider this: these glow-in-the-dark pigs were created in the name of science. In an effort to further study human genetic disorders, scientists in Southern China injected pig embryos with fluorescent jellyfish DNA; when these 10 piglets are put under a black light, they emanate an eerie green glow. This successful integration of genetic material into the animal’s natural make-up, made possible through a technique developed by reproductive scientists at the University of Hawai`i, could be instrumental in creating more cost-efficient and effective treatments for disorders like hemophilia. “[For] patients who suffer

PARIS (December 30, 2013) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has notified drug maker Genzyme that its new drug for the treatment of multiple sclerosis is not ready for approval for the American market. The FDA told the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi, which is the parent of Genzyme, that the companies had not submitted sufficient evidence to show the benefits of Lemtrada. The European Medicines Agency approved the drug for use in the EU earlier this year. Sanofi wants to market Lemtrada as a treatment for relapsing multiple sclerosis.

But Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales, said it was “silly” to suggest he and 73 others aboard the MV Akademic Shokalskiy were trapped in ice they’d sought to prove had melted. He remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas. "We´re stuck in our own experiment," the Australasian Antarctic Expedition said in a statement.

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not
