: Keep your feet OFF our furniture!
: Eli February 11, 2010, 15:38:30
I don't know about anyone else, but this makes me angry. I don't sit around my own office like this and sure don't like the idea of Obama doing it in OUR Office on OUR furniture!  >:(



Does this photo taken in the Oval Office convey anything to you about attitude and arrogance?
 
Would you speak with the Chief of Staff, your Chief Economics Adviser, and your Senior Adviser with your feet up on the Resolute Desk - a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880?

Here is a bit more history about the desk:
The ship was purchased, fitted out and sent to England as a gift to HER MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA by the PRESIDENT AND PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES as a token of goodwill & friendship. This desk was made from her timbers when she was broken up, and presented by the QUEEN OF GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND to the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES in 1880, Rutherford B. Hayes, as a memorial of the courtesy and loving kindness which dictated the offer of the gift of the HMS RESOLUTE.

We should inundate the White House with emails demanding he keep his feet off of our furniture.
This arrogant, immature, self-centered idiot demonstrates repeatedly that he has no sense of honor, or of simple decency.
 
While this posture is disrespectful in any culture, it is absolutely never done in any executive setting.
 
Further, in over half of the cultures of the world, it is recognized not only as disrespectful, but as an extreme insult to show the bottom of your shoes.  In some cultures it could also get you killed!
 
He thinks of himself as a king -- and not as a servant of the people, humbly occupying our White House for his term in office.
 
Electing him was an enormous mistake -- and will cost us in many ways, for generations.

Here is another example of his disrespect for the Resolute and those he speaks to:

Obama insults Israelis with his feet on the desk (http://pumasunleashed.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/obama-rests-his-feet-on-the-resolute-desk-while-talking-to-netanyahu/),
another article about this (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2269550/posts).

It has been argued that President Bush was photographed with his feet on the desk as well.  If so, shame on him.  It is unacceptable for anyone with that position to place their feet on the desk.
