Posted on 01/24/2010 7:11:51 PM PST by Talkradio03

All of these photos are from WH Photographer Pete Souza and uploaded on the White House website, it not only shows Obama's lack of respect for the Oval Office and the White House, it shows their arrogance that they would upload them on the WH page...

Interesting pictures. Also interesting is why the one of people eating birthday cake in the oval office is considered disrespectful... personally, I’d consider that one neutral.

For someone who never stops thinking about jobs he seems to have a lot of time to toss around the pig skin.

There are some pieces of historic, irreplaceable crockery in the Oval Office.

He must think he's Sean Hannity throwing the football around.

I guarantee that Barry would never put his dirty shoes on a prayer rug or toss a football around a mosque.

Notice he has no paper work much of anything in the Oval.I believe he has (I can't remember the room name) the room on the 2nd floor. Have other Presidents put feet on that desk? Anyone know?

David Axelrod looks like such a dumpy slob of a human being in that 4th photo. Our next president should build a new White House now that this one’s been thoroughly defiled by these amateurs.

On public transit I see people put their (shod) feet on the seats, despite written warnings from the transit authority that such activity is forbidden. I see the same thing going on in movie theaters. Patrons who behave in such a way are treating the furniture as if it’s their own living room couch—no, worse than that.

BO’s behavior is no better than that of the people I have described.

I remember the photos of him at the “beer summit” with the MA police officer. His body language was completely undignified. Even Biden looked better by comparison.

He’s supposed to be the black FDR. I’m sure FDR never put his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office.

Oh please....Bush had his feet up in the Oval Office all the time...the media office just never allowed the photos to be released. I took a tour of the Bush WH and saw the photos on the wall.

There are plenty of issues to nail Obama on, like being a a Marxist...this ain’t one of them.

Yeah, I have seen pics of W with his feet on the desk. I don’t see the big deal here at all. As much as I can’t stand this mongrel, he isn’t doing anything worse than what his predecessors have done, well except Kliton that is....

Like the Clintons, Obama has never held what most people would consider a real job in his life. The concept of “work” means something different when your whole career has either been being a scam artist in the race-hustling business or being a legislator who wasn’t expected to do any of the heavy lifting.

Before I saw the pictures I was like “who cares about some photos of Barack”.

After I saw the pictures, I am offended. My children would never throw a football in our house. When I see their feet on the furniture, I slap the leg OFF. When you live in someone else’s home you should practice some civility. This man is leader of the “free world”? Almighty God, please protect us.

Even his time as a "community organizer" was less than 2 years!

He seems to only want to be part of speech-giving and the ceremonial functions of the office. I don't think he's handling the conflict between what he wants to do, what is forced upon him, and the way things aren't working the way he thought they would.

The next time he makes noises about being tired or needing to get away from Washington, I think it's time to publicly encourage him to resign so he can go to Hawaii and vacation permanently. Biden's no prize, but I think he would embarrass us less.

Is anyone really surprised by this?? The man is a proven liar and is ineligible to be POTUS. He has no respect for the United States and is the true Manchurian candidate.

He hates the US, why should he respect the WH and all that it represents?? He still thinks that the sun and the earth revolve around him!!

The photos don’t bother me too much...except the one where his staff is talking to him, and he has his feet on the desk. That would really p*ss me off, if I were one of them.

What ghetto? He grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia. His grandparents who raised him are probably richer than you. He’s 100% suburban hippie.

Presidents have a private office in the White House in addition to the Oval Office. Doubtful there is any paperwork up there either though, these days.

I don’t know what other presidents have done, but any one in that position should be aware of how he appears to others, especially when he is being photographed.

Yes, a cheap shot which I should have resisted. There are lots of things FDR can be faulted for which harmed the country, but his overcoming of his disability to the point where he could be a governor and a President was admirable. Unlike some other children of privilege he really did have to overcome hardship.

Feet on the furniture! I don’t have a problem with them eating cake in an office, but the vulgarity of the feet on the furniture. Really. Not a gentleman.

I agree with the other posters that one is expected to act respectful (no feet on the furniture, playing ball) in another person’s house.

That isn’t his house, and he should treat it respectfully.
